Experimenting With Sparklers.. / by Angela Fortin Washington

Sometimes I get a spark of artistic inspiration, it brings out my inner child, and hopefully, makes me a better photographer. Anyone who is a frequent "pinner" on Pinterest, especially those making wedding pin boards probably has seen some pretty cool pictures of couples and sparklers...lots of sparklers. Anyway, I won't blab on and on, I will just show you some of my favorites I took with our neighbor. Just in case any of you are a photo nerd like me, these were taken with my 24-70mm at 2.8 with a six or eight second exposure and 100 ISO.

How to Rock Your Engagement Session Tips & Tricks!

Planning a wedding can be stressful and overwhelming at times. Let this photoshoot be something you really just enjoy together and let's have some fun! Here are my best tips and tricks to making your engagement photoshoot the best it can be.

Brittany & Andrew's Chilly Walk Through Scioto Audubon Park (engagement)

We may have ended the session with frozen fingers, but it wasn't due to the lack of warmth between these two people. Since they booked over the phone, the Audubon Park was the first place we all actually got to meet. Right away I felt an ease with them, I loved Brittany's choice to wear a red dress (especially in March with everything not quite blooming and still frosted from winter) and I could tell they had so much respect for one another. When I asked them what they love about their relationship, they both said they appreciated the other's loyalty. We started off our session with a little something to keep them warm, my favorite, tea by the water.
