Most of the engagement sessions I do are an hour before sunset… to get those sunkissed photos… night light glare… and yellow-orange yumminess in the background. But this engagement session just proves how beautiful the engagement session can be during a cloudy day. I love the way these came out. We went to the Lyndon Baines Johnson Memorial Grove in Washington, DC. I had never been there… it’s very beautiful, and you pretty much have the space for yourself. As you can see, it was pretty laid back, but creative.Enjoy!
Let me tell you how I got into Wedding Photography. It all started with my first semi-professional camera when I was 17. My mom had always seen my creative side more than anyone, and thought I was great at photography. I loved photography all my life, but it wasn't until I focused all my attention into taking photographs that it became a passion.
One day I realized I wanted to do photography as a career. So I grabbed my camera and started photographing everything: landscapes, people, things, etc. I began doing portraiture of my friends and family.
I started investigating wedding photography for my wedding, and became fascinated with it. I realized that weddings are truly once in a lifetime events (because very few marry the same person twice!), and that it was an opportunity to capture one of the happiest days of someone's life. I practiced, practiced, and practiced more, until I was comfortable being second shooters for a friend's wedding, I started building my wedding portfolio gradually.
I've shot many weddings, witnessed many happy tears of joy, lots of cake cuttings, lots of flowers thrown, and every wedding I go to gives me an opportunity to create awesome photos. When my clients get to see the final images and they smile, well that's what it's all about. I love making people smile with my work, and creating images that will stay with them for generations to come.
I'm Zareth Acosta, and I can't wait to make you smile.
