Engagement portrait sitting on Chambers Bay stairs

These concrete stairs leading from the pedestrian bridge to the beach at Chambers Bay Golf Course in University Place, Washington don't look like much, but with the right camera angle, pose and lighting - and a pretty sky behind - we created a really cute image of this engaged couple. The key to upward-angling portraits like this one is for the subjects to lean toward the camera, which helps prevent some of the less-flattering issues that can emerge from looking downward.
