So this past Saturday my wife got a call from Stephanie checking to see if I was available to photograph their engagement session next weekend... given that I had prior obligations scheduled, I respectfully declined.. then few seconds later, Stephanie goes "ok.. so how about tomorrow?" So with that, THANKS Stephanie and Brain for taking away my Sunday nap time! Just kidding :)
Last second call for an engagement session is sort of an adrenaline rush, there's no real time to prep, just pack the available gears and improvise. For Stephanie & Brian's session, the colors of the sunset proves that we picked a great day for a shoot... nap time well sacrificed :) Congrats Stephanie and Brian!
I absolutely LOVE themed photo sessions! Regardless if it's an editorial, engagement or personal work, just throw me an idea and we will get the ball rolling! This was exactly what Tran did for her engagement session and she went beyond just ideas, she was thinking like an art director and planned up everything she wanted for this twilight theme shoot. We even spent couple weekends out scouting for the perfect locations, and found this secret area within the Cal Poly Pomona's campus. With all the props and location setup, it was up to me to frame and execute the photos! Hope Tran and James loved these photos as much as I love taking them!
