When Karla told me I’d be shooting their theme’d engagement shoot, I had no idea what I was in for. This triple location shoot meant triple the fun, and since I’ve known Karla my entire adult life, it made capturing the couple’s ideas that much easer. Here are a couple of teaser shots to feed your curiosity.
I met Adam and Desiree yesterday at Venice Beach for a spectacular engagement shoot. We all had a great time spending the late afternoon and evening at the beach, getting our feet wet, and getting some great images to boot. Here is a little teaser, there will be more to come soon, so “don’t change that dial.”
Chris and Tanya will be getting married on January 7th this year, and getting together to do the engagement shoot was a bit of a challenge since the couple live in North Carolina. We got together December 29th, and prayed that the weather would hold and be pleasant at Huntington Beach Pier. Just as we were getting started, a fog bank rolled in, making for a unique and exciting engagement session.
Last weekend I cruised down to San Juan Capistrano to shoot Rinehart and Jessica’s engagement session. The sky was just about ready to unload it’s bounty of rain the entire 2 1/2 hour drive there, so on the way, I began thinking of creative ways to use the weather to my advantage. When we finally met, the rain was coming down steadily, and would intermittently stop, then start again. Secretly, I was hoping it would rain, mostly because I love a good challenge, and shooting in these conditions was just that. In Southern California we don’t get too much rain, so when it happens, I’m always eager to be out in it. Here now, is the engagement session, in pictures.
I mentioned in the teaser that we had to walk away from the mission in San Juan Capistrano because they were let onto the fact we were about to do a photoshoot. Luckily before the shoot, I did some scouting around the area, and found some great places to have our session, including the Regency Cinema, the Amtrak Depot, and around the historic district.
