Autumn Engagement Sessions and Weddings

The bright vivid colors of the Fall can truly make Autumn engagement sessions spectacular and provide the perfect setting for wedding photos. After moving to Kentucky, the Fall quickly became my favorite time of the year and as a Louisville wedding photographer it is one of the most exciting and busiest times as well. It seems that everyone wants to get out into the autumn air and enjoy the beauty of the season. With the trees looking like they are ablaze it is the perfect time to take photos. Quite understandably, a large majority of my clients schedule their wedding or engagement session for when the leaves are changing.

Of course, the red, yellow and orange leaves make an incredible background for photos, but that is just where it starts. There is also so much room for creativity when it comes to Autumn Engagement Sessions. A big yard filled with fallen leaves can serve as an interesting foreground or I can use the leaves as a prop of sorts by having my subjects throw them in the air or holding them up towards the camera. Capturing people being playful really suits the season well. It is great when I can photograph a couple having a piggyback ride or climbing a tree. I love taking photos of couples while going apple picking or to a pumpkin patch. The fun and excitement in their eyes is irresistible and the fresh produce really highlights the season. We can also spice up your photos by adding some seasonal food to the images. Almost everyone wants to smile when you see an image of someone you love eating a big piece of sweet apple pie.

A more relaxed look can also work very well in autumn images. Occasionally, for an engagement session I will just take clients and drive off into the countryside until we find a view of bountiful rolling hillsides ready for harvest. People look the most comfortable in authentic moments, so just letting people sit on the end of the dock with their feet in the water or having a couple take a walk through a park can be an excellent opportunity to create some spectacular images. I’ve also found that there is something almost magical about a couple, comfortably reclining in a pile of leaves. The emotion and expressions on their faces just happens organically.

There are even more options if we get creative with the perspective. I love climbing a tree to get a vantage point from above or placing my camera down in the midst of the leaves. Every now and then I choose to have the attention drawn to the colorful leaves or produce while leaving my subjects out of focus. Using black-and-white or sepia toned images can also draw attention to the textures of the surroundings and give a more vintage look. The best time of day to be out taking photos is the first or last hour of light, but do not feel limited to only these times. There is a plethora opportunity to get great autumn images when the leaves are just right, but sadly once they’re gone it will be another long year. So don’t miss your opportunity to get some stunning photos this Fall. Schedule an appointment with David soon and enjoy the season.
