A Very Special Engagement
Our Draht Photography engagements are always known to be something special. I am immensely proud of them. In every engagement session, I try to incorporate something different. Importantly too, the five hour session really helps me connect with the bride and groom in a way that a one hour consult can’t.
I’ll know if they like posing, if they blink a lot, and which hat is their favorite. 😉
I took this at one of my new favorite places in Vernon, Bench Row Road. On Google Maps it says it’s a nursery, but it’s not! They changed it to a public park not very long ago. As an added bonus, it’s a dog park so you can take your puppy! Just make sure you clean up after him. Baggies are at the entrance.
I’m liking my logo. I wanted something natural. My favorite photos are of nature, specifically of the woods. Blame this BC boy at heart. We’ve got some of the best forests I’ve ever seen in the world. And believe me, I’ve looked. Although it makes my Alberta friends pretty jealous, I can’t help but post photos of my couples in our gorgeous Okanagan forests. The way the sunlight filters through the trees is just breathtaking. Especially in the evening. Especially with an external flash bearing a CTO (hehehe).
What next? Well, the gear lust has never abated. I would like several Canon 600ex flashes in the mail. I’ve got my eyes on a Nikon D4. A new Alien Bee 800 with a 4×4 softbox for on location work would be appreciated.
But the biggest thing I want on my list? More engagements, and more weddings!!!!
