frankie & katie

Earlier this month Tay and I went on a bit of a last minute road trip to Yellowstone.  It was a lot of driving but also a lot of fun.  Our first stop was in Boise to visit my friend, Frankie, who I hadn’t seen in years.  We stayed with him and his wife, Kate, on the way out and the way back so we wouldn’t have to make the entire drive in one day.  To say thanks we decided to do a quick photo shoot with them on our way back home.  They’ve been married for four years and are still super cute and giggly around each other.  We went out to Eagle Island State Park in the morning on a hot, clear day.  Despite the time it was already super hot out.  I think the temperature was over 100 later in the day.  I kept a few shots of Tay in there just because I like them.  The photos toward the bottom are from when we went out in the evening after it had cooled down a bit.  There were a few moments at the very end of the day that had some amazing golden light peaking through the trees that I was glad I could capture.

These photos are from the end of our trip but I’ll have plenty more to share soon.  We spent a lot of time at the Idaho State Capitol, went to a food truck roundup in Provo, hung out with a giant group of friends at a cabin outside of Yellowstone, and of course drove all over Yellowstone itself.  Thanks for looking.

Nice Job Kyle! Very good couples photography. What is your setup? In this lighting with the sun to the back of the subjects, do you use a speedlite to light up the front of your subjects? thanks!

Hey Stuart. Outdoors I pretty much exclusively shoot with natural light. No reflectors or speedlites at all. I just try to expose for the people instead of the backgrounds and am careful during editing. Shooting in RAW helps. I like the look of natural light and prefer to shoot without the added distraction of lighting equipment. I pretty much just use speedlites for receptions when it’s too dark otherwise. Even then I bump the ISO up and drag the shutter to mix the flash with as much available light as possible.

Love all these, and the description of the trip. Can’t wait to see more photos
