Mill of Kintail Winter Engagement Session: Natasha + Jon

Mill-of-Kintail-Winter-Engagement-Session-Stephanie-Beach-PhotographyI have mentioned it before, but I really will do just about anything for my clients and their photos. I often end up lying on the ground during my session to get  a unique angle, although as I mentioned to Natasha + Jon during their session, this is really only suggested for wide shots as a straight up the nose angle isn’t flattering for anyone. I can also be seen with mud all over my shoes, dirt on pants, and squatting is something I can do for days thanks to the long stretches of it during wedding ceremonies. But in the case of winter sessions, the dedication to getting the shot is probably best exemplified by the bruises that are currently covering my shins.

Favourite Ring Photos from 2018

Ornamental-Gardens-Engagement-Session-Stephanie-Beach-PhotographyI’ve decided to toss a new end-of-the-year post into the mix – my absolute favourite ring photos from the past year!

Ottawa Ornamental Gardens Engagement Session: Melissa + Rami

Ottawa-Ornamental-Gardens-Engagement-Session-Stephanie-Beach-PhotographyPretty much every photographer know about Golden Hour. it’s that gorgeous time in the evening as sunset approaches where the sun is lower in the sky and creates a nice warm glow that lights subjects up so beautifully. It is my favourite time to do engagement sessions as it really is just so wonderful to shoot in! Golden Hour is so well known that even a lot of our clients have heard of it and are looking for the type of images we create using that light.

As soon as I mentioned that I preferred to start sessions later in the day, Melissa + Rami knew why right away. And as the sun started to dip beneath the horizon, we were able to create even more spectacular images! And as I mentioned in their sneak peek photos, these two really know how to sizzle in front of a camera!!
