Silver Efex Pro Classic Portrait?CEP Glamour Glow

Here’s another one with high sentimental value. I was asked by my recently-engaged son, Brian, to take engagement photos of him and his fiancée, Katie. Of course I said, “Yes.” But I was nervous – partly because I hadn’t done any studio portraiture in months and partly because I had never done any real formal portraiture of my own family. But both subjects were relaxed and easy to work with. And they were photogenic. (How could a father and future father-in-law say anything else?!)

Brian has been the subject of another post to this blog – Take A Leap (02). Some might argue that delving into a relationship and ultimately into marriage constitutes a sort of a leap of faith, as well. But as I observe Katie and Brian, I don’t think this about them. Their relationship seems like the perfect mix of reason and emotion – but it’s not a leap of faith.
