These are just some pictures I took of my soon to be sister-in-law. Her and my brother-in-law are getting married soon and asked me to do engagement photos of them. I just wanted some advice from yall in places to do them, the kind of shots I should take.... really just any advice you wanna give me. I know it's not photojournalism but it's my first photo shoot that actually matters (this one I just did was more for fun), I just want it to be as professional as possible.


  1. Great photos, Lexi! Can't wait to see the rest of the photos you do for them. Jose

  2. I like that you are taking portraits too, I've always enjoyed giving my friends a photo session they can look back on. A few tips/suggestions would be...1)encourage less patterned or branded clothing during the shoot 2)try shooting furthest away with telephoto to decrease depth of field (but make sure they are both in focus with your depth-of-field preview button - you should try shooting at f8 the whole time (your lens is sharpest here)). And check out the work of others - my friend Kate has her own business shooting portraits:
