Here are some more fun NYC Long Island City Queens wedding engagement photos inspiration from Elisabeth and Rob's engagement session. Normally sessions are an hour long, but when we're having fun, I never keep track of time. With these two we were just laughing and strolling along the "shores" of the East River and next thing you know the sun is setting.
One of the final shots was with me on the ground (a normal occurrence...not because I fell...but that happens too - it's fine so long as the camera is OK!) taking a shot of Elisabeth and Rob walking towards the camera, strolling along. I then asked them to kiss and in that instance, I realized the sun is about to set, giving the sky a blue, purple pink hue!!! I quickly decided to heck with natural light, let's get some off-camera flash (OCF) lighting goodness and get these two in front of that back drop. Why OCF? If you see the 2nd photo using natural light, I exposed for the couple, making the sky washed out. But if you expose for the sky, then bring off-camera lighting into the mix, then the OCF light makes the couple pop from the background. Adding another OCF behind them separate them from the background even more, creating a pretty halo effect.
I had a light stand behind them with a speed light set to 1/64th power, and my Voice Activated Light stand (aka VAL...aka amazing assistant ever who's name isn't VAL) 45 degrees to my left, the couple's right. With the RapidBox (full power) tilted towards the couple with the edge of the RapidBox on the same plane as their eyes, we started shooting amazing photos I would hang on the wall in my own home! For the photographers out there who wants to know about the set up, I believe the camera was set to 1/200 sec at 4.0-5.0, and ISO 320-400. I was using a 70-200 f/2.8L IS II at the time to bring the city closer to my subjects. Yes, I planned the use of my light settings and lens for a reason.
With that, here's some more fun photos and enjoy! "LIKE" Angelica Criscuolo Photography and follow us to stay updated with Elisabeth and Rob's wedding as well as follow and stay updated with my work.
