Danielle and John- A River Chase Farm Engagement

John is an IT guy and an avid Caps fan... when there isn't a lockout. Danielle is a teacher and also works with and rides horses whenever she gets the chance.  We had the session at River Chase Farm in Aldie, Virginia which is where Danielle rides at. It is also where John proposed to Danielle.We started the shoot in one of the barns and ended with Beau (the other guy in Danielle's life) out in one of the fields.

Danielle and John- I am so excited for your wedding in October 2013!

Huge thank you to the lovely Katy for helping me on this shoot! Check out the end of the blog post for a peek behind the scenes.

Behind the Scenes: The first location we shot was up in the roof area of one of the barns. It had very little natural light coming in from a single window. So we needed to add extra light to make shooting possible.

The key light was a Nikon SB-910 with a 30" Lastolite Ezybox on a monopod which Katy was holding. I added a second light to help give more detail of the barn behind them. For that I used another SB-910 on a Manfrotto Justin Clamp on the ground. I used a Pocket Wizard MultiMax to trigger the speed lights and Plus IIs for the receivers.
