Adam and Heather a really sweet couple. These two brought their bikes along for this shoot at Crystal Cove State park. It was an overcast day, but that didn’t stop us from getting some great shots. I love how each couple’s personalities come out uniquely in each of my engagement shoots. This is such a fun way to get some practice being in front of the camera before the wedding, and these are photos in “normal” clothes that you put up in your house to mix in with the wedding photos to come. Here are a few of my favorites:
Masha captured this one – isn’t Heather stunning?
OK, OK, this is cheezy, but we love it.
One for the moms and dads…
I love her expression in this shot.
Thanks guys, I had a blast! Who needs sunny skies?
Last week, I had the privilege of participating in the “7 Workshop” offered by the legendary Mike Colon to better my craft and be a part of this amazing wedding fashion shoot at the Montage in Laguna Beach. A few years ago when I was just getting serious about wedding photography, I took an evening workshop from Mike, Dane Sanders, and Jessica Claire, and I was hooked. I saw the kind of work they were creating, their passion and skill, and I made a decision to always push the creative envelope, and invest in learning as much as possible. (cue “the more you know” jingle…)
The day was rainy, so the Montage offered us their presidential suite to shoot in. It was huge and classy without being over-the-top, and it offered an amazing view of the beach below. We also had these amazing models, Jessica and Brian. You’d think they were really in love! It was hard to narrow it down, but here are my favorites. Let me know your thoughts in the comments below.
Jessica just glows like this all the time!
A note to photographers: I highly recommend the “Seven Workshop” by Mike Colon. There is no more reputable wedding photographer than Mike Colon, and he will answer any and all questions you may have. The workshops are limited to 7 people, so you won’t be lost in the crowd, and the cost is easily made up by simply following his advice on pricing and booking more. Feel free to email me with any questions.
