E-shoots are a great ice breaker. The couple can dip their toes in the waters of having their picture taken and the Colin can learn a bit about the couple’s personality and their comfort level with having a personal paparazzi. Engagement shoots have a flexible and relaxed schedule too, there’s wandering around an area, chat about the wedding and about each other so when the wedding day arrives, Colin has a small bit of the couple’s story to keep in his back pocket. Wedding days have a strict schedule too so an engagement shoot is a great time to try for more artistic shots that may take some more time to get just right.
In 2015, Colin took a lot of his engagement photos at dusk. The photos will gradually look different as the sun goes down so there is great variety to the shot looks. Here are 16 of Colin’s favorite shots from this year.
