Haley and Marcus had so much fun during their Cedar Hill Engagement session with Silver Bear Creative! Cedar Hill Nature Preserve is an expansive wooded area that we love using for couples sessions. It has the perfect woodsy intimate vibes that so many of our couples aim for. Places like this are great for both casual and fancier outfits. Haley and Marcus did the best of both worlds with their engagement session outfit choices.
I wanted to get creative during Haley and Marcus’ engagement session, so I brought along a prism to use. A prism is used by putting it slightly in front of the camera lens to create fun patterns with light. I love how the prism images turned out during this engagement session! Adds a little bit of a whimsical element to some photos.
Engagement Session Posing
For every couples session I strive to use a wide variety of poses. I like mixing candids and posed images for the final galleries. My favorite poses from this session are the laying/sitting poses in the tall luscious grass. This pose is so intimate and looks amazing with a flowy bright colored dress such as the one Haley is wearing.
I also cannot deny how in love I am with ring close up shots! Look at how gorgeous Haley’s ring is! Marcus did such a good job picking out the perfect ring for his bride. The shape of the ring is so unique and stunning, it was fun to photograph! I love putting ring shots in black and white! Black and white images are great when you want to focus on the focal point of the image. This technique is ideal for an engagement ring photo! I really enjoy customizing the poses that I use depending on the couple.
