I just love photographing my “Get To Know You” Engagement sessions! It is such a vital part of the process of a wedding experience. I get to know my couples and how they naturally show their affections to each other. They get to know me in the process and how I photograph, how i gently nudge them into natural, flattering positions and how i LOVE to laugh with them the whole time! It is a WIN-WIN experience for all of us!
This session was in the Oakland hills at the majestic Joaquin Miller Park. Laura and David were a delight to collaborate together to really get a glimpse of their “couple personality”. Thank you both and I am very excited to capture your wedding day at Santa Clara University’s Mission Church and reception at the grand Dolce Hayes Mansion in San Jose.
During engagement sessions I sometimes use the opportunity to practice my craft/artistry and try out more complicated lighting locations/set-ups. I am quite pleased with the sunset images which show off the environment with unique lighting.
