    Hi everyone,

     

    I just wanted to share my diy engagement pictures.... I have been into photography for a good while now and I decided to save us a couple hundred dollars and shoot out own engagement pictures... You can do it to I promise!  Alll you need is a 15.00 tripod and a decent digital camera and a slight knowledge of photoshop.... Or if you are from the pittsburgh area I would be glad to help you out! : )

     

    Heres a few of my favs...

          i think we might try this. we were going to just get some easy pics done by a portrait studio instead of a "on-location" photographer, but this looks like it would be a lot of fun! thanks for the inspiration!

           

          time to start shopping for a cheapie tripod :-)

              I would like a new digital camera too to make them really great, but the one I have is fine for now. I asked FI for a camera as a wedding present LOL

               

              I should probably make sure the resolution setting is as high as possible before shooting, right?

                My camera automatically adjusts settings like resolution but if you have manually do so I would suggest using a big resolution setting. It will take up more memory so make sure you get a fresh memory card! By making the resolution higher they will look better in general plus it will make editing and.actually using the pictures super simple!

                  Those are so pretty! And it doesn't even look like you did them yourself because they're so coordinated!
