For two romantics like ourselves, Valentine’s Day definitely ranks high on our list of holidays. From sneaking around trying to get each other something special(which if you run your business with your significant other can be a true challenge); to lining up an order of flowers. Or making each other homemade cards and finding fun little gifts that say I love you in the smalest and most subtle ways. All those little things that lead up to the afternoon activity: should we go to the beach, to the mountains, or just curl up by the fire and watch a movie together??? Decisions, decisions. Well of course doing an impromptu little shoot never hurt either. Enjoy our little fun shoot and we wish you and yours a very happy and love filled Valentine’s Day!
Do you like DIY but maybe some of its is a little bit daunting? That is frequently how I feel. I look up how to make lots of amazing things on Pinterest but when I finally attempt creation, they never turn out quite right. Well the lovely coordinator for this inspiration shoot Spring has come up with a great solution. She has put together a series of hands on DIY workshops that teach a variety of fun skills from, center pieces to handmade jewelry and whimsical hair fascinators. Spring stylized a recent photo shoot with us using an array of the skillfully crafted decor that will be taught in her classes. These are some of our favorite shots from the recent inspiration shoot with these fine wedding industry professionals. Thanks everyone involved for all the hard work, and we can only begin to tell you how much fun it was working together.
We LOVE San Diego. Everywhere you go in this town there is an amazing place to shoot. I grew up in this ever growing city and still cant believe all the unique places we stumble upon every day. The Solana Beach Train Station is a spot we have been wanting a photo op at for a while now. Every time we drive by I oogle at the glass elevators and invision possibilities. Guess what! We were finally given the chance to shoot at the Train Station. It was all I had hoped for and more. Well except for the elevators, in reality they are much to small when you get 3 people in + 2 cameras and a pro-photo studio light but then again I think every elevator is to small for all of that. Amanda was just so much fun to work with. She wanted some fun new portraits and was up for anything creative we could throw at her.
