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.
Adventurous newlyweds embrace the rain.

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.

It’s a good time to Reflect!

By, September 18, 2017

Whenever we see an opportunity to capture a moment in a more interesting way, we jump at the chance! For example, reflections can be found in diverse environments, such as rain puddles in the street, mirrors at venues, and car windows. Capturing reflections perfectly involves finding unique perspectives, being positioned exactly right, and clients who are willing to hold still. The results are worth it :) Enjoy!

For Alexsis and Julian's engagement session, we mirrored their affection with a reflection in a tidal pool and went wide to include the beautiful cliffs and horizon line.

In this image we did a 180 on the direction of the photo. What is up is down, what is down is up.

The element of reflection isn't limited to couples and can also be used to create an aesthetically pleasing environment for important details.

From Farm to Table

By, August 21, 2017

If variety is the spice of life, our lives are pure jalapeño :) On any given day, we could be photographing rustic outdoor locales (aka farms), immaculate ballroom setups (aka tables), and everything in-between. Having opportunities to think outside the box lets us be creative for you!

Check out some of our favorite “farms” and “tables” below. All images are 100% certified organic, grass-fed, pasture raised, free of hormones and antibiotics, and shot by our free-range photographers. Enjoy ;)

It's always fun to photograph multiple levels!

When photographing tables, one technique we use is shoot-throughs. This adds interest to the photograph, and makes it feel like you're looking right into the environment.
