Haley and Brock’s engagement photos at the University of Arkansas

Ever since I went full time over two years ago, I’ve had a lot more time and a lot more opportunities, and I’m loving it! Recently, I did a really fun giveaway with The Diamond Center in Fayetteville. For a month, anyone that bought a certain price ring from them got a free shoot from me. It could either be an engagement session, or I would be all ninja like and shoot the proposal! I’m still waiting for a lot of the people to reach out to me to claim their shoot, but I did get to do my first shoot about a month ago. I met up with Haley and Brock and shot their¬†engagement photos at the University of Arkansas. We also did a video and it was pretty cool!

I got to talk to Haley and Brock on the phone before meeting up with them, but I really didn’t know them or what to expect. I quickly got to know them, and they are such a wonderful couple. Brock is super duper outgoing and just a funny and kind guy. Haley isn’t as loud but she still just smiles all the time (probably because of Brock) and is a blast.

This was an interesting shoot. I was doing photo and video all by myself, so basically with every spot and pose, I had to do photo and then remember to switch over to video. It was able to do it, but switching back and forth did interrupt the flow a bit.

The whole shoot was pretty easy and short. We started with Old Main as a background and moved maybe 100 yards. In that small area, we were able to get about 4 different looks, which is good for about 30 minutes of photos.

My favorite shot of it all required a little work. I found this gap in between some trees where the sky was showing through. I put the couple in it and set my exposure for the sky. This made basically everything else dark. I then used a flash to light them. I really like the way it turned out, nice and moody.

These¬†¬†engagement photos at the University of Arkansas were the first from the promotion with the Diamond Center. I can’t wait for more of them to contact me, so I can meet even more amazing couples like Haley and Brock!
