Autumn Engagement Photos At A Kettering Ohio Wooded Park

In November 2021, I photographed an absolutely gorgeous engagement session at Hills And Dales MetroPark in Kettering, Ohio. This couple was so much fun and did a great job for me. She picked great colors that complemented the foliage colors for this wooded park engagement photo session. I prefer to use Dogwood Pond rather than any other part of the park. The pagoda, pond, and walking trail are perfect little spots for intimate engagement photos in Dayton.

Good And Bad About Wooded Park Engagement Photos

Normally I don’t love shooting at this park due to there not being a lot of light. Today, the lighting, color, and couple came together to form my favorite fall engagement photos ever. The colors of their outfits fit perfectly into the background. The groom’s expressions were hilarious which made the session even more fun. Their love was evident to me, and I hope these photos reflect that.

I prefer to bring off camera lighting to give the couple a little pop of light.  This helps to separate them from the background, in this case, their fall foliage.  It also makes the photos more dynamic and contrasty.  It can be annoying to have a light stand and sandbag, but the results speak for themselves.
