Engagement Photo Session

A few of my favorites from an engagement photo session with Steve and Christine.

Here's what Steve & Christine had to say.

“As soon as we first saw Victor’s work we knew there was no way we would have anyone else shoot our engagement photos for us. Even while at our very scenic locations we did not realize how much he would blow away our expectations! We are far more happy with the results than we ever thought we could be. Everyone that sees our engagement photos are stunned! Thanks Victor!”

Here's what they said about their photos.

"Hi Victor! Just wanted to drop by to thank you again for everything, we couldnt be more happy with the photos, they turned out great. You gave us exactly what we were looking for. We will definitely recommend you highly to anyone looking for new photos, we'll be in touch." - Richard, Fall of Empyrean

Who's the boss?

Bruce Springsteen of course (and the E Street Band). Well, maybe not my boss, but the boss of a sold out arena for the evening. I didn't have my 70-200mm 2.8 lens or a larger zoom for this show which was sad. I had to use my old DX 18-200VR which performs disappointingly compared to the 70-200mm 2.8 (as it should for the $1500.00 difference) We had to shoot from the sound board and having a 400mm would've been nice. The other four photographers there had them (as you can see from the image below) which made me feel a little "lens envy". Oh well. I still got good shots.
You can see the rest of my pics from the show at the Phoenix New Times site here Bruce Springsteen Slideshow
