Nice evening for engagement portraits at the Myrtle Beach State Park

I’ve been doing a lot of family pictures recently, it was nice to have some engagement portraits instead. This was a fun couple that seemed to be really having a good time.  From what I remember it was a really windy evening, but actually this couple made it pretty easy.  I only had to worry about the hair in one direction :)  It’s been windy almost every evening recently, but as long as you turn people into the wind so the hair is blowing back it’s not a big deal.  The only time it really gets bad is if the wind is blowing so much that it causes the sand to blow across the surface.  If sand is blowing in people eyes there isn’t very much you can do.  So far this week has been pretty good as far as the weather and the wind.  I hope you enjoy the pictures below, if you do please remember to let me know if the comments.

Cute engagement portraits at the Myrtle Beach State Park

I haven’t posted anything to the blog in a while so I decided I better make a post so everyone doesn’t think I’ve stopped working.  Actually, I’ve been extremely busy and it has made it hard to take the time to do this, and of course I’ve been playing with my new iPad 2 a bit as well :)  Being a photographer is a good excuse to tell your wife you need an iPad.  I’ve got some really great bridal portraits I’m going to be posting soon, I just have to wait a few weeks until after the wedding to make sure the groom doesn’t see what the dress looks like.

I thought I would put up some pictures from a recent pre-engagement session at the Myrtle Beach State Park.  This is a young couple that is not actually engaged yet but wanted to do some pictures.  They started out a bit shy and uncomfortable, the guy in the pictures was actually hearing impaired, but could read lips.  I find it amazing that someone can do that, I just had to be careful to speak towards him.  I try to be really easy going and make the pictures as fun as possible, I know it’s not easy trying to be romantic with someone pointing a camera at you.  I thought the pictures ended up being really cute and fun, I hope you enjoy some of them below.  And remember, many clients are nervous about getting pictures done, but it’s really not that bad.  It can actually end up being pretty fun, I hear that from a lot of clients after their appointment.
