There is something magical about a sunrise. There is a stillness in the air, the light is soft and the world is quiet. Rachel and Dustin had this idea for their engagement session: tide pooling – something they love doing together. I was thrilled with the idea. Yes, we had to start shooting at 5:30 am ( Yes, AM!) for the low tide. I knew it would be amazing. Equally amazing is how motivated I get when it comes to photography even though I had to wake up when it was still dark outside. Thank goodness Jeff came along. We decided on Fitzgerald Reserve in Moss Beach, CA – a beautiful beach with lots of tide pools . By chance we got the last moments of the Super Moon. It was the kind of shoot when everything was aligned…the moon, the stars and the tide. A lot like when Dustin and Rachel met. Now we will be celebrating their wedding which I am sure will be just as magical.
I have known Lauren for a long time. In fact, I believe we ( her sister and I ) took her to her first concert – No Doubt. She was a teenager and so excited hear all the songs from the Tragic Kingdom album. She was loving every minute of it!
Now she is all grown up, engaged and is about to get married to Joe. I am honored to shoot their wedding this summer. I could see how much they adore each other and how extremely happy they are. It just amazes me that Lauren is isn’t that teenager anymore is about to be Joe’s beautiful wife.
It was a prefect day – warm. Spring was on it’s way. Frank and Rebecca wanted to do part of their engagement shoot at a winery. They found Truett Hurst Winery. The plan was to do a few shots there then move on to another location but once we saw how beautiful this place was we didn’t leave. We had a great time shooting around the winery . The winery had a beautiful garden, a river with cool red chairs alongside and adorable goats and sheep.
I am so excited for their wedding. These two are so sweet and just lovely to be around. I kept overhearing them telling how much they love each other during the shoot. It made me smile as I “worked”!
Anyone who knows me probably knows I have a hopeless case of puppy love. That is, of course, I absolutely love doggies. I keep a list of possible names for a future dog in my life (I’m partial to “Lola” right now for some reason). One of my goals in life is to have a house with yard – so we can finally get a dog! These furry family members make my heart just about melt simply passing by when I’m walking down the street.
Given all of this, it’s probably no surprise that I was thrilled to be interviewed by Janine of Dogster for a nice little article on including your four-legged friends in engagement or couple’s photo sessions. You can read the interview here.
