Cox Arboretum Engagement

Schuster Center

Angela and I photographed Sahar and Brent’s Cox Arboretum Engagement last night. We also photographed at Schuster Center to complete our After Dark session.

Our After Dark Engagement sessions usually start 90 minutes before sunset and finish 90 minutes after the sun goes down. This allows us to capture the best list on both sides of the sunset. The tricky part of capturing the sunset is the amount of time that you have to capture it. The “optimal sky” with vivid blues and oranges is often a chance encounter and when we see the colors starting to develop we then have about 20 minutes to shoot. Such was the case last night as we moved from one side of the Cox Arboretum to the other to be sure to pull the colors out of the sky. Definitely portfolio worthy images.

We are going to be photographing their wedding in June 2015 at Schuster Center. Here are my favorite images from the engagement.
