Getting the Perfect Exposure | Boudoir Photography

By, November 18, 2018

In recent years, there has been a growing popularity for more innovative and stylized boudoir photography. We have found that many woman are doing boudoir photo shoots not just as a gift for their significant other, but for themselves. It is a great way to be able to look back and remember that time of life when know you had that oh la la ;) We have many cool locations in mind to help inspire the background for the photograph.  As well, we can photograph in the comfort of your home, or even a cool hotel room that has nice staging to work with. We are open to shaking things up a bit, and can plan a shoot in an unexpected environment, like a forest or a warehouse.

Our photographers know how to pose individual body types in the most flattering ways. It is important that we look at you specifically to bring out your best angles. We also include professional post-production to give our clients a sophisticated and polished look. The result will be some of the best portraits of yourself that you will ever see!

Take a peek at some of our recent favorites ;)

Planning the Ceremony | Wedding Tips

By, December 31, 2017

When planning the wedding ceremony, one big decision is, “What time should we start?” Because the ceremony time dictates the schedule for the rest of the day, there are several factors to consider.

1. Sunset. Sunset time is one of the most important things to consider! As a general rule, the ceremony should start well before sunset, and end at least one hour before the sun goes down. This ensures that you will still have quality light after the ceremony, which is important for romantic portraits together, as well as family photos.

2. Reception. Length of the reception is another thing to consider. An earlier ceremony start time gives room for a nice long party afterwards :) You’ll want to leave plenty of time to accommodate dinner, dancing, and any other traditions/event you want to include.

3. Venue Rules. Most venues have a mandatory end time. Your venue may also have a strict ceremony time. If your venue’s required ceremony window is less than one hour before sunset, you might want to consider doing a “first look.” This will allow the majority of the couple’s portraits and wedding party photos to be done before the ceremony, and ensure that you have beautiful photos in the best available light.

If you have specific questions about your wedding ceremony, and how it will pertain to your photography timeline, please feel free to contact us!

Rainy Wedding Day Photos

By, December 29, 2017

Although we can’t control the weather, we have learned to treat everything like an opportunity. Even when the forecast shifts in an unexpected direction, we choose to seize the day, whatever it may bring. If it does rain while we are photographing, we will take it and make sweet batch of lemonade :)

Especially on the wedding day, there’s something thrilling about running headfirst into the rain, and capturing the beauty of nature in unexpected ways. Once you see the potential a rainy day holds, you just might find yourself hoping for raindrops!

Kristin and Ryan possess a stunning image that few other couples have. This photograph was taken in Colorado at 5,500 elevation. Being that both our camera Kristin and Ryan's umbrella were both metal, it wasn't our brightest idea. But since we all survived, it sure made for an amazing picture. We photographed 100 frames in about 20 seconds to precisely capture this bolt of lightning.

Yang and Kaisu had shifting weather patterns on their big day, and took every photo op in stride. This resulted in a breathtaking collection of photos, like this candid shot. The beautiful, floral framing alone would have made a nice image, but the rain falling in the background really kicked it up a few notches :)

Jenn and Nick's' wedding started off with bright, golden rays of sun during their day at the Coronado Cays Yacht Club. However, an unexpected blanket of fog quickly set in. Working within these conditions, we backlit Jenn and Nick, and captured the ambience of the moment.
