I had the pleasure and honor to photograph the engagement photo session of Beni and Nick from Berkley, CA . A couple that is so much in love that made me even cry after I finished editing their photos. The engagement photography took place in the vicinity of Mt. Diablo, close to my studio in Concord, CA.
Part of the session took place in the mountain near the trails and the other part, which was very short one took place at the Clayton Community Park. The green grass there was a perfect match for Beni's black&white polka dots dress with her red lather jacket. While, Beni and Nick who are in love with wild nature and open country spaces Mount Diablo was the perfect place to show their personality and how they interact between each other as a couple.
Walking down the road. A beautiful late afternoon sunlight was embracing Beni and Nick happiness. The whole photo session was for 2 hours. We did the shot from 5-7pm; till dusk.
As an artist who is always looking for a concept I usually try to find out from my clients prior to our photo session what they love doing together, their hobbies, their favorite things like food, places, fashion in order to make the session memorable experience to them. That also helps to make them feel more relax and comfortable in front of my camera. And the reason Stani Photography offers complimentary photo session with each package is to get to know each other better before the Big Day! As we all know most of the couples that are getting married are not professional models. They might be photographed professionally for first time during their engagement or on their wedding day.
