Seattle engagement photographer | Seattle Engagement portrait session

Posted in Downtown Seattle, personal work, portraits, Washington, weddings by bermanphotos on September 12, 2009

I had a wonderful engagement portrait session with Amanda and Patrick this past week, and it was great to get to know this young couple. I can’t wait to photograph their wedding next August! We started off around their favorite Seattle locale (Pike Place Market) and ended up walking around the Seattle waterfront for a few hours. What a great way to enjoy a warm Summer day!

For this last photo, I wanted to do something very different with the couple. I set up a Nikon SB800 speedlight with Pocket Wizards in a small softbox (without the front diffusing material) and aimed the flash down towards the couple. A couple of test pops to see how the shadows would look, and then I took an elevator five stories up to the Red Lion Hotel’s rooftop lounge and shot directly down. I love the effect.
