Couple’s Portraiture: Shaylene & Sepand

I had an opportunity to spend a couple of hours one Saturday afternoon with a lovely young couple.  They wanted to have some couple’s portraits taken at Prince’s Island Park in Calgary.  The biggest challenge for this shoot was, of course, the weather.  We were doing this shoot in February and the temperature was around -5 degrees (Celsius).  That made for some cold fingers and rosy red cheeks.  The sky, however, was overcast and this made for some very nice soft lighting.  We wandered from the Peace Bridge, to the causeway, and ended up on the band stage in the park.


All images were shot using a Nikon D600 and a Nikon AF-S 70-200mm f.2.8GII ED.  All shots were hand held and employed only natural sunlight filtered through the overcast grey clouds of a wintery February afternoon.
