Portrait,Trash the Dress 06.07.2011
TUESDAY? I know, I let you down. Making it up to you right now though, I promise! Well May was quite the whirlwind month for Rico and I to say the least. We shot MANY weddings and engagement shoots, were in San Francisco, Palm Springs, LA, Los Olivos, San Luis Obispo…and more. On top of that we moved into our new house last week and are ready to get started on all the projects! So as you can see we have been living in crazy town and are ready for things to get back to just a bit more normal (I’m walking sans crutches now..yay!). So although I would have MUCH rather been blogging, yesterday was spent many hours in the car. So, here we go, making it up to you!
Today’s shoot is an absolute treat if you ask me. I have the “trash the dress” session of a very special couple to share with you. We had the EXTREME pleasure to shoot Andie and Doug’s wedding last August, and through them booking us for their wedding, they have now become some of our closest friends. These two mean the absolute WORLD to me and it was seriously awesome to do another shoot with them after all the time we’ve spent hanging out, chatting (gchat!), and hours of talking photography (andie has become quite the kick ass photog herself!) and weddings and life (drinking wine?). Having them in front of the camera is like breathing and it was just what we needed in the middle of crazy season. Andie and Doug, you know how much you mean to us, SO MUCH…you might not know how hot you are though, so that’s what we’re here for. Ladies and gentleman, I give you Andie and Doug’s hotness….you’ll be crushing hard after this post for sure, Lord knows I am! xoxo
MONDAAAAAAAAAAAY! Some of you I’m sure cringe when you hear the word…am I right? Just think, Monday blog post people! Well, that and coffee…and I can feel the cheer already. You know what else is cheery? Shooting a rad wedding in San Fran in the rain, and spending some time with one of my besties. Yep, that’s what Rico and I did this last weekend. We jumped up to San Fran for the wedding of Lydia and Tommy, then hung out with our lovely friend Carleigh all day yesterday and flew back to San Diego around midnight to have a slumber party at my pop’s house (our house is getting tented, so we’re living out of our car…pesky termites).
Soooo, enough about us and our little house guests (may they rest in peace). On to the good stuff that is Helen and Van. I have been wanting to share them with you for a while now, but you know how it is, busy busy busy wedding season means blog laggage, my apologies. Better late than never though right? So today we have a dual shoot post of Helen and Van. The first part is their engagement session, and the second is their bridal shoot which we shot a couple weeks before the wedding. We enjoyed spending time with them in Huntington and Laguna beach running around the beach, hiking in the mountains, hanging by the lake, we covered a lot of ground with these two! Was it worth it? Most definitely. As always, the pictures speak for themselves so I leave with you Helen and Van and all their adorableness…..
RAIN = awesome
Alright, so today’s post is just a BIT awkward for me…the things we do for sweet pictures right? The reason for this is evident in the first picture which is a giant picture of my face! HOWEVER, as much as I am NOT A FAN of getting my picture taken, Rico and I couldn’t resist doing a shoot in this fabulous downpour we’ve been having in San Diego this week. Since it was just the two of us, we had to pick one person to shoot and one to be the subject. Alas, my long hair betrayed me! It just looks so much better when soaked. So, there you have it, go easy on me, I’m not photogenic so instead just focus on how awesome the rain is, and how it makes for some pretty mean (in a good way) pictures. Happy Thursday my friends!
And yes, the umbrella was definitely just for show…normally it does work better than that.
