fashion, love and happiness
True inspirations come from real life.I was totally inspired to shoot the engagement photo session of Jen and Kevin in the area of Mount Diablo. It was on a hot May day. The grass was yellow already with a little green here and there and the sky was pure blue. We could hear the crickets and the birds on the background.
Jennifer is a trained dancer and Kevin plays soccer, but he also loves to go hunting. They changed two outfits ..both causal. One of the outfits was suggesting the hunter’s character using two hunting hats. J+K carefully selected their outfits for the session, which spoke about their personalities, but also they matched the simplicity of the location and at the same time very contemporary for their age. Loved it, so neat!
Jen and Kevin were absolutely relaxed in front of the camera and felt very comfortable with each other- especially at the end of the photo session. Some of the reasons I love shooting the engagement sessions before the wedding is the opportunity to work with the couple one to one , to learn about their behavior in front of the camera and really to get to know each other. I always tell my clients when we meet for first time: ‘You don’t want me the first time to point a camera at you to be at your wedding day’ and particularly if you have never taken professional photos of yourself before. Considering the above points a better communication and trust are created between me as the professional photographer -artist and my client. Creativity relies on the personal connection between the photographer and the model.
The entire session as I mentioned it was on one location with two outfits. It was approximately no longer than hour and a half between 4:30-6pm in a sunny Californian May day.
Jen and Kevin were absolutely relaxed in front of the camera and felt very comfortable with each other- especially at the end of the photo session. I am glad that it felt like I wasn't there.
Congrats Kevin and Jennifer for you engagement !
I can’t wait to shoot your wedding in August.
