What I love about this session

1) I love this session because there’s nothing ordinary about it. Everything from the location to the outfits were very fun, unique, and/or creative. Plus we ended up at a dessert place at the end of the session. Which makes everything that much…sweeter icon smile Meet Gilbert and Danielle! East Bay Oakland Engagement Session

2) The location is an abandoned naval base. Who would in the right mind would want to shoot there for an engagement session? That’s right. Us. We do. And it turned out awesome. It was filled with colors, abandoned buildings, shipping crates, empty parking lots, and things I’ve never even seen before.  So much yes, so much win.

3) Gilbert and Danielle had two outfits for their engagement session. One was a traditional vietnamese outfit which made them stand out in front of old buildings and backgrounds. I wasn’t sure about them at first, but they sure add a lot of fun and a lot of color punch! Gilbert’s second outfit was a marvel shirt. Definitely a first for me, but definitely a lot of fun! I love fun!

4) If you haven’t seen the photos yet, there is a lot of smiles and laughter. Lots. A lot more than my usual session. I love it because that’s who they are, and they brought it out of each other. All I had to is click, click, click icon smile Meet Gilbert and Danielle! East Bay Oakland Engagement Session

Hello world! Sorry for being so MIA! It’s been quite a long time since I’ve last blogged! I promise to be better! Guess what? I have a new logo which you can see on this blog and my new website and all my packaging! And without further ado…back to our normal program…

What I love about this session

1) The session started off at the ACE hotel and I love this place! It’s such a cool artsy mid century hotel that I have yet to stay at but love being at. I would have no absolute problem with just going there because I think it’s a cool place (if I was already in Palm Springs)

2) The second place for Khyrstyne and Emerson’s was the famous windmill farms! I’ve been wanting to photograph a couple here since I started my career. I don’t know why it took about 9 years for me to get here but now that I’ve finally done, I am so happy!

3) Surprisingly, even for myself, it was my first time photographing a couple at Joshua Tree. I don’t have an excuse for myself for this one like the windmill farms because it’s a little hard into to. So I’ve checked off a couple of my bucket list things with this session!

4) I get excited when my couples show up with really nice outfits. And by coincidence we were all wearing brown mid ankle boots. Snazzy!

5) I love adventure. I like to think of my whole life as one big life adventure. If I didn’t, I think that life would pretty boring.. Khrystyne and Emerson had a couple of coffee mugs that say “the adventure begins.” Pretty darn cool if you ask me. It’s probably a good thing that I didn’t ask them where they got those mugs otherwise I’d buy some. All of them.

What I love about this session

1) if it’s not apparent to you yet…There are giant big hot air balloons in this session and I LOVE THEM. I’ll say it again. Hot air balloons! In Temecula which is wine country! I love wine, and I love Temecula
2) In the spirit of wine country we all had a little bit of champagne after the flight. Apparently it’s tradition. And Apparently alcohol in the morning (even in little amounts) is enough to make me feel pretty happy
3) So if balloons aren’t enough, there’s also rowboats. Ever seen Little Mermaid? Yeap. Just like that. Sort of except I’m there and we got stuck in the grass and had to get rescued out. We didn’t ask for it, it just came. So I’m not sure if that’s better or worse. We must have look pretty bad if a rescue boat came to get us and we didn’t even ask for it.
4) To make it a triple threat, Jennifer and Phong also have motorcycles. Seems like a whole bunch of awesomeness in a shoot right? I get the feeling that either Jennifer or Phong (or both) were those students in high school that would just blow everyone out of the water with their projects and presentations. I don’t know if I’m right, but I have a good feeling that I am.
5)I forgot to mention it was my first Hot air ballon ride ever. And I got to ride it on this day, and I can’t say enough how much I love my job! I love what I do!

What I love about this session.

4) Ahh the classic coke bottles! I don’t like Coke but I definitely love the way they look!
5) Shooting with the wall art in downtown is basically how I started my style and my photography so even after all these years some things never change! ENjoy!
