I like to do engagement sessions for my upcoming weddings during this slower time of the year. I recently had two sets of wedding clients that wanted to do engagement pictures at the Conway River Walk, so I combined photos from both their sessions into one post. I’m a little partial to the first set below because they had a poodle that looks almost like my dog Penny. Their poodle was a little nervous, especially up on the railroad track, just like my dog would be with the tail tucked down tight. The very last picture in the first set below was cute. He was trying to be good and sit while we did pictures, but he was so happy when they finally called him over. I thought both the engagement sessions turned out very lovely. The Conway Riverwalk is a great spot this time of the year. I had a little trouble getting the guys to smile, but I understand because I can’t smile for pictures myself.
The two engagement photography sessions below can give you an idea of the difference between a sunny and a cloudy day. They have different looks, but I can’t say one is better. I like the soft look of a cloudy day, especially in black and white. Of course, when you can get the sunset filtering through a tree in the background, it is also great. I don’t get to choose if it will be cloudy or sunny, so I just had to learn to make it look good either way. I’d say if you are a beginning photographer, try for a cloudy day. It’s a lot easier to get a good picture; I see many photographers make a mess of things with the sun. I hope you enjoy the engagement pictures from the Conway River Walk below.
