Farmington NM Photographer | Engagement Portrait Session | Kirtland New Mexico | featuring AJ & Kelly

This steamy couple lit the set in Kirtland New Mexico. We went into this shoot completely blind, and came out with an amazing experience. If I remember correctly, these guys have known each other for like 3 years. There's something to say about couples who spend time truly getting to know each other. They're so comfortable and happy together, and it was obvious their friendship runs deep.

This was our first experiment with HDR (high dynamic range) photography. For those of you who don't know, it deals with taking the same photo multiple times (in this case 3) at different exposures...typically 1 under exposed, one exposed correctly, and one over exposed. The results were very interesting. Still figuring it out, but it's been super fun messing with.



So AJ's family owns this amazing ranch that stretched down to the base of the San Juan river. We love sun flares! This setting made for the coolest portrait experience ever. Thank you guys so much for letting us shoot there!



Love this love shot!




So congratulations guys! This was a fantastic engagement session. You're both super cool. We're really looking forward to shooting the wedding. Thank you again for choosing Shutterfreek to cover the experience.
