I was recently contacted by a newly engaged couple that was refereed to me by a past client to photograph their wedding in June.
Unfortunately as I was booked that date I let them know I was not available and after hearing of her disappointment we said our good byes. About a month later I got a call back from the bride to be asking if I could shoot their engagement photos.. and of course I said yes and we proceed to make plans.. I mean, how great is it that even after knowing she found another photographer for the wedding she still picked me to shoot her engagement photos.. What an honor..
It was so great to know that even though they found another photographer to shoot their wedding they still wanted me to photograph their engagement session. So we decided to set this photo session at one of my favorite spots in Sacramento, Sialor Bar which has so many great shooting locations and “Looks” all within a 5 minute walk.. From the raging American River, wonderful natural trails and for my newest favorite spot, a secluded nook by the water which happened to have wild Iris flowers in full bloom providing a special backdrop to what was turning out to be a great time for everyone.
To end this Engagement shoot, with the help of Chris’s Dad we had their fully restored 1960’s El Camino to use as our backdrop… so I had them park this vintage beauty under an iconic Oak tree for some fun shots with this couple in love.
This was the perfect opportunity for me to put on my creative “Think Cap” and play around with some poses and to top it off we included a nice bottle of with for toasting their future new lives together.. the beginning of what will be a long journey together..
In the end I feel so lucky to spend such special time with this wonderful couple.. I truly wish I wasn’t booked for their wedding as I am confident it will be a wonderful and very special day..
I had the wonderful opportunity to photograph our friend’s Daughter Elana who is a budding actress and singer.
As a singer and musician I wanted to feature her with her instruments but as an actress we spent time capturing headshots for future use with casting directors.
I have no doubt that we will all be hearing and seeing more of Elana in the future, first as a local Sacramento talent and who knows, she might just break into the “Big Time” down the road…
I will be contacting my friend Chandra Bourne of the Cast Images Agency in Sacramento to hopefully set up a meeting and secure representation for commercials and possably future films and TV.
