Another great evening photographing a couple whose wedding I’m shooting a little later this year. With the “May grey” weather we’ve been having along the coast, I was inspired to do a darker, moodier color treatment on their images. I couldn’t be happier with the way they turned out and word has it she cried when viewing them. Always a good sign 🙂
This was my “in and around Laguna” engagement session, which gives us lots of different backdrops and typically ends at the beach.
As brides-to-be often do, Hadhyja had her hair and make-up trial the day of our sesh. And, let’s talk about her hair! Gorgeous, yes?
These photos were taken just last evening. I was so happy, I wanted to share a few!
One of my very favorite places to do an engagement session is in my own ‘backyard’ of Laguna Beach. I like to park the car and just walk around town, stopping when we spot a great backdrop. I do have to admit I sometimes get a little ‘performance’ anxiety. I’d just met Lisa earlier in the week to book her wedding, and had never met Chris. But, as soon as we started shooting , I relaxed. And clearly, they did too. I could tell that we’d get some terrific images. The results tell the tale.
Chris and Lisa were up for anything! A terrific and fun couple to work with. Can hardly wait for their wedding!
Here are a few more favorites. (And, we didn’t even set foot on the sand!)
How great is this? Chris looks like he's walking on air.
Such a sweet look.
The yellow wild mustard was the perfect contrast to Lisa's red shirt.
- Carpe diem is always the order of the day. We happened upon this bike, and I couldn’t resist.
