Hagen and Natalie’s Engagement

Hagen is Garret’s brother, so I was more than happy to take their engagement photos, along with his upcoming wedding as well.  Hagen and Natalie were going with a nautical theme for their wedding and wanted some shots with the Seattle skyline behind them, so Alki was the obvious choice for some good locations.  We lost light pretty fast, but thanks to R.J. Deguzman’s help with reflector and off-camera speedlight work, we were still able to get some good captures.  I started off with the Nikkor 24-70mm ƒ2.8, then moved to the Nikkor 85mm ƒ1.8D, and finally ended with the Nikkor 70-200mm ƒ2.8 VR2.  The VR2 proved to be very useful and impressive as usual. I simply cannot rave about that lens enough.  I even used it for a Brenizer Method shot, but I think my 85mm still does it better thanks to the wider aperture.  Anyway, here is a link to all the photos:


And a few of my personal favorites:
