1940’s Inspired Engagement | Emily and Rafael

By, November 28, 2017

Emily and Rafael are originally from San Diego, but currently live in North Carolina. Since Rafael is a commercial pilot, the couple flew to San Diego for a special engagement session. The shoot was held in Air Group One’s Hangar and WWII Museum in El Cajon, CA.

Emily and Rafael’s 1940’s attire, hair, and makeup made the photos feel like a step back in time. Also, the suitcases (pictured below) were gifted to Emily’s grandmother on her own wedding day… 60 years ago! Check out the amazing photos from this fun and glamorous engagement photo shoot :)

Torrey Pines Engagement | Tiarah and Anthony

By, November 20, 2017

When we met Tiarah and Anthony at Torrey Pines for their engagement shoot, it was a bright, cloudless day. This sounds great in theory, but having limited shade can make for a very challenging photo shoot. Fortunately, we have a solid understanding of light, and knew how to use it to our advantage :) By adjusting for the conditions of the day, we found the best opportunities, and captured great photos for this happy couple!

By shooting from an elevated location, we used the sun to backlight Tiarah and Tony, and reduced the glare in the frame.

To achieve clean shadows, and a balanced backlight, we positioned Tiarah and Tony between the sun and our lens.

By keeping Tiarah and Tony close, and positioning the light source (sun) behind them, we created soft light portraits in less than perfect conditions.

By rotating Tiarah and Tony, and keeping the sun to their right, it created a bolder, more dramatic feel.

As the sun set closer to the horizon, we made our way to the beach. There, we fully embraced the setting sun, and the romantic light it provided.

This time, we allowed direct sunlight to enter our lens, to achieve a sun-kissed look

As the sun set, we brought in a little fill light by using an off-camera flash. This allowed us to balance the image, and have detail throughout the images.

North Torrey Pines Engagement – Kaitlin and Niles

By, November 11, 2017

Kaitlin and Niles love being active together. Whether it’s surfing, biking, skateboarding or hiking, they never miss a chance to get outside and play. When it came time for their engagement shoot, this couple wanted to incorporate some of these fun activities, and showcase some of their favorite local spots. They chose the majestic trails and beach of North Torrey Pines as their playground for the day. Have a look at some of the adventures that took place :)
