I get a call from Andy about a month or so before the engagement session is scheduled. Having a cultural wedding, Andy and Ivy decided to take their bridal formals in lieu of their engagement session. I was definitely ok with that because if there is one thing photographers love is more time with their subject! About two weeks later I get an email from Andy wondering if we could take their formals at the Governor Hotel. Having shot countless weddings there I was really excited about all the possiblities and all the places we could go. Then I realized something and began to ponder, "Wait, you have never shot there when there wasn't a wedding, how would you gain access to all these wonderful places?". How would I indeed. I then realized that help was just an email away and Nora from Bridal Bliss had the people I should contact who had the names of the people I should contact. Everything was all set. It was funny because throughout the session many a passerby were congratulating the couple but you could see the confusion on their faces. After all, it was a Tuesday.

Ah - summer is almost here - you can feel it! Last night, Jamie, Issac and I messed around up on top of Mt Tabor park for their engagement session as the sun set slowly in the West - and it was great fun.
This couple's wedding is going to be fun! Here are some of my faves.

I met this couple in the winter of 09. They were in from Idaho where they lived. I think it was the coldest day of the winter because I remember sitting down in the Starbucks and speaking gibberish like Mushmouth from Fat Albert for about 5 minutes because my lips were frozen. After we got over that initial hurdle we were off and running. I knew right away that we were going to have fun on their wedding day. They were so relaxed and a joy to talk to. They said that out of the ordinary was fine with them and I took that to heart. So, wedding day comes around and you couldn't ask for a better day. Sunny with clouds and semi cool weather. As you can see in these photos, out of the ordinary was more than fine with them. Awesome.

Mel and Nick - crazy fun!
Getting married this summer, their engagement session was a fusion one which means that the final DVD will have video as well as images - and it was great fun to do! Marc shot the video, I shot the stills.
Here are my faves of the day:

So much fun!... We hit the waterfront early Sunday morning for an engagement session and took advantage of the beautiful morning light! Tara and Trent asked if it'd be ok to wake Truman up (from the car) and include him in a few photos. As you can see, Truman was a natural in front of the lens and loved every minute!
