I've been shooting engagement pictures for awhile, but lately I've changed up my routine a bit to make the engagement pictures more fun (for them and for me) but turning the process into more of a date - with me just following the couple around on the date while setting up specific shots or moods from time to time. Mostly I just want them to act like themselves and show the world how much they are in love.

The limit of eight pictures here on POTN makes it hard to "tell the story" the way I want to, so if you'd like to see more, please check out my blog (external link).

Thanks. That last one is at an unplanned location that we spotted as we were driving into town for the final shots. :)

I wish your profile here gave me some clue who you are... I'd like to be able to say "yeah, I remember you". :-)

Really love 3 & 5. Nice lighting on most of these here, and I love the colors.

Goes to show that it's not all technical (which you've master anyway, awesome pics on your site) but the talent to get the couple to do things and get into a fun mood, that's what really makes these photos. These are great! Love 3 and 5, 8 is cool, well done :)

For a long time I have tended towards more "candid looking" shots for the engagement pictures (bridals and weddings are more posed for me). But it's only recently that I decided to try to turn the whole "engagement session" experience into more of a "date" for the couple and just let them have fun. I've been enjoying the results. I don't get as many "portrait looking pictures" (I do stop the couple from time to time for a set-up shot), but the pictures themselves tend to tell more of a story than my older pictures did. So I like the idea. :)

Great idea, that fourth one really captures them.
