Engagements

I was asked to do some "arty" engagement photos for this sweet couple. Zambia really let me down on the light this time. It rained the entire day and the sun just never bothered to wake up, so we didn't have any kind of sunset. It was tough.

What would you do - would you add in a little golden light to some of their photos - or would you just leave them more true to the weather of the day?
Well they are still so beautiful & we get the soft light but I do miss that warmth that your photos normally have. Perhaps ask the young couple themselves. I wouldn’t have thought there was anything missing but perhaps the warm glow that’s the essence of Zambia should be helped this time. Perhaps try it & see! Stunning photo though, you did well!

Definitely do what you did - the addition of the golden light! After all its supposed to convey emotion! fav

I love this as it is. They will always say ‘remember how it rained....’ so I think it depicts the day nicely and is arty too.

Personally I'd have a little play about with white balance to warm it up a bit. It's a lovely photo either way though.

I sense your frustration but nonetheless this is a beautiful shot. I am sure that the couple will be able to help with your decision.
When I married the rain was torrential. I have one of my favourite shots of us wearing wellies under an umbrella. It was a beautiful day regardless of the weather.

Thank you all - I took quite a few photos so I think I will warm some of them up a bit and see how it looks. You guys are great :-)
