Arboretum Engagement Photo 1

This lovely couple wanted pictures in a garden with nature. What better place to photograph them in that atmosphere than at the Arboretum in Arcadia where peacocks and wild animals run freely. We walked around to different garden themes of the Arboretum and stumbled across this fallen tree. The purple flowers, tall grass, and a ray of sunlight offers the perfect set for these two.

The framing is amazing. I'd love to see a shot of this where we haven't lost sight of her nose, and her hands are in a more feminine position.

I watch America's Next Top Model for the poses and photography and Tyra called this the baseball mit hand. I call it monster grip. My best friend had monster grip in all of her wedding photos. So it is something I always watch for now

I will keep those in mind for my next shoot. Yeah, her hands do look a bit awkward. Thanks for the tip!
