Michelle & Austin's Golf Course Engagement

When Michelle contacted me with the idea of a golf course engagement shoot, I said yes! 

I love a new environment! Her fiance Austin was a golf pro at the Olde Point Golf course in Hampstead so we would have access to the entire golf course.  I arrived about an hour and a half before sunset so we could meet at the golf carts and head out to their favorite spots.

If you've read my blog, or seen my images, you know I love sun flare. 

Sun flare, long shadows and shallow depth of field also gives me some elements that I can incorporate graphic design into.  There's no way I could write on a golf ball that perfectly.

Riding on the golf cart also gave a unique perspective to shoot through the back.  Don't worry we stopped to take these images... no kissing while driving lol.

Since there are so many trees on a golf course, the shady areas gave me a chance to incorporate my own lighting.  One speed light is all I really ever need.  

(Side note: I came 3 inches from lying in goose poop.  Sometimes I get so distracted with the shot I'm going for that I overlook what's right below me.  I definitely dodged a bullet there. )

Touring around gave the sun a chance to set and the colors of the sky to change so we could get one more unique look from our fantastic shoot location.
