I’ve only had the opportunity to shoot two partial solar eclipses that have occurred around sunset. This time around I was fortunate to have an engagement session at the same time! You guys know I’m a total sky nut so this is right in my wheel house!

I met up with Melanie and Alex in Nebraska City for their shoot. To get this particular photo, they are a couple hundred yards from me, and up-hill. I’m shooting with a 600mm lens to get the sun to show up so large. Boom!

Next solar eclipse in the United States won’t be until 2017 but it’ll be a doozie! ┬áTotal eclipse through a swath of Nebraska. You know that’s on my calendar already.
