After one rained out evening and one Harbor Fest to avoid, we finally picked the perfect evening to run around Ontario Beach Park at the Port of Rochester for Beach Sunset Engagement Photos! What a fun and beautiful evening for an Engagement Session. Julia and Shawn are so cute and fun. Julia laughs constantly, and it almost felt like a soundtrack to the evening.
I was a little surprised that she was so comfortable in front of the camera since she is a budding Photographer herself. It was good for me to step up my game with lenses and lighting to be sure that I provided them with images that she could never do herself. I’m pretty sure I got sand in my camera bag as well as all over my clean jeans, but these images were totally worth it!
This is one of those locations that I’ve scouted out on my weekly bike rides (including that morning) and I was so pleased with the results. Shawn and Julia recently acquired a sailboat, so I thought the marina was a great location for the two of them. Someone recently said that I manage to make Rochester look cool… maybe that is because I think Rochester is awesome!! Beauty in the eye of the beholder and all of that….
Anyway, I can not wait to photograph Julia & Shawn’s wedding this Fall and put together their Engagement Session Guestbook, which have been a big hit at this year’s wedding receptions!
These images are already online in their web gallery, so have fun looking through them…. however here are my absolute faves from the portrait session…
