Nikolai & Lauren’s Engagement Session

Last week, I shot engagement photos for Nick & Lauren. You may remember them from previous sessions with me, as I’ve shot them both before. Nick is a really good buddy of mine, and he recently proposed to Lauren (since our January 1 session), so obviously, we needed some new photos to commemorate the occasion. Since the last session was so emotive and overtly melancholy, we decided a more light-hearted session was in order. These were shot on Lake Coeur D’ Alene (CDA, ID). The lifeguards were cool enough to let us get a few shots on the tower, which we were super excited about!! Anyway, here are a couple of photos from that session! I’d love to hear any feedback you may have, so lay it on me!

Do You Love Me? Do You, Surfer Girl?

Oh, Chad! You're Such A Dream!

For this session, I shot Kodak Ektachrome E100GX film, and had it *cross-processed. Beyond that, color levels have been tweaked and some additional effects have been added.

*Cross-processing is the act of processing one type of film in a chemical bath meant for another type of film. The results are somewhat unpredictable, but if shot right, will yield some pretty awesome results with coloring & saturation!
