Downtown Austin Rooftop Engagement Session | Behind the Scenes Video

Downtown Austin Formal Engagement Session

If you've ever wondered what it's like to have your engagement photos taken- this is for you! This blog shows a behind the scenes video for what it's like during a session, with all the feature photos and an explanation for my posing/direction.

I find that the majority of couples choose a park or field for their engagement sessions. I have been wanting to do a session in a more urban setting for a while, so I asked Sarah if her and Adam would model for me to show what a downtown session could look like. They absolutely CRUSHED it!

Since this was a styled/modeled session, I asked my friend Justin if he'd come along and film some behind the scenes for me. In the behind the scenes video below, you can watch to see how I interact/pose my couples, as well as reasoning behind why I choose certain locations, certain lenses, and different prompts/movements.

I think the behind the scenes video is beneficial for both couples and other photographers. If you're a couple reading this, you can get a sense of what it might be like to work with me. If you're a photographer reading this, you'll see what the settings/metadata is for all the photos and maybe pick up some posing techniques.

Let me know if you enjoyed the video and would want to see more content like this!
