Jillian & Kevin’s engagement shoot

Leave a comment

Last weekend I met up with Jillian and Kevin at Devil’s Den State Park to do engagement portraits. The couples who choose Devil’s Den almost always go for the stand-in-the-water shots in front of the waterfall, but usually there isn’t much water coming over this time of year. Thanks to several big rain showers, the spillway looked great! After the standard shots using the waterfall as a backdrop, they decided to get brave and go sit in the waterfall near the top of the spillway. The images were great, but I have never had a couple so completely soaked after a shoot! Oh well, at least it was warm out šŸ™‚ They are such a fun couple and I am looking forward to their beach wedding in Miami this September!

We started at the overlook at the top of Yellow Rock Trail, it is so pretty there in the evenings and early morning!

I like how this image expresses more about who they are as a couple than a traditional "look at the camera and smile" picture would.

Cute couple + good evening light + waterfall = good picture.

I really like this image - the setting makes it really unique.

Well it was really hard deciding which images to put on the blog because I had so many favorites, so I am putting a few more on my Facebook page. The link is on the right side of this page towards the top. It’s the best way to keep up with what’s going on in the world of Steely Joe!
