Canon is the host of this Golden Hour Shooting Experience program.  
http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/home. Rachael uses a Canon 5D Mk. II and Canon lenses.

This Golden Hour Shooting Experience with Rachael Boer will focus on creating dynamic images of couples using creative posing and lighting techniques. During this interactive course with a couple, we will learn a variety of posing strategies that will translate into natural, authentic images. Different lighting techniques will also be covered, including using a reflector and off-camera flash (OCF) to produce beautiful lighting conditions during golden hour. These techniques will easily translate to your next engagement session or wedding. If you have a reflector or speedlight/speedlite, don't forget to bring it along!

Learning Objectives:
1. Learn several basic rules of posing for couples and become comfortable with creating natural poses.
2. Learn to evaluate lighting conditions and choose the correct modifier, if needed, such as reflector, diffuser, or off-camera flash.
3. Become comfortable with basic off-camera flash techniques and understand the different looks achieved through using various modifiers (soft box, umbrella, grid, bare flash, gelled flash).

The Alamo:
This Golden Hour Shooting Experience will take place at the Alamo (just a short walk from the Marriott Rivercenter). Established in 1724 as Mission San Antonio de Valero – the first mission in San Antonio – the Alamo is known as the "Shrine of Texas Liberty" and is the number one tourist destination in Texas. 

The Alamo has two distinct features— the buildings/walls and the lush greenery. Access to the buildings and walls is fairly easy from outside the Alamo itself or at several points inside the gates. The greenery provides full or partial coverage, allowing you to play with the amount of natural light as well as the direction. Even though you’ll be able to see other photographers due to the layout of the Alamo, you’ll find that creative use of the greenery can give a very private, or “Secret Garden,” feel to your images. There are several benches at a number of places within the walls. If you head outside the gates, you’ll find a bigger common area and more bright, unobstructed sunlight. The Alamo has been reserved for Click Away on this evening, so you won't have to work around public visitors if you plan to remain inside the gates near the Alamo gardens.
