Sarah & Carl are a wonderful couple who decided to have there engagement photos on Lake Travis this July. They are getting married in September at The Lodge at Bridal Veil Falls, so this was a last minute engagement session for them. We met up at The Gnarly Bar located in Pointe Venture, TX. I have been out to this restaurant before, and I was really excited to shoot there again. It sits right down on the water, and is a super fun place to enjoy a summer afternoon. After we got a few photos down on the boat docks, we made our way to a park nearby for some natural setting photos. The park has several great waterfront locations to shoot at. Sarah and Carl like to fish, so we had to incorporate that into the session for sure. The lighting at the second location was very nice. The shots in the tall grass turned out especially good. The photos were shot with an 85mm f/1.4 lens. When using a large aperture (like these shots), the photos have a really dreamy look to them. The depth of field is paper thin, and the subjects really pop! Its a really great look for photos like these. I usually backlight all of my subjects to ensure even lighting, but with a waterfront, you are typically a little more limited. We waited until the lighting softened up a bit, and took some shots down by the water. The colors are very nice, and I love the way the photos turned out. Enjoy the session, and feel free to share them with your friends and family members. Make sure and keep an eye out for there wedding photos this September!! Congrats to Sarah & Carl!!
