January and February were slow months for me so took it as a time to work on personal projects and here’s one with Marissa who I have always loved shooting! With all the rain we’ve been getting I got really lucky with clear skies and even sun that day. The shoot was primarily inspired by these fluffy pampas that pop up all over around this time.
I love when couples reach out just to shoot for the sake of their love for each other, no big milestone or event but just because. I went to Cal Poly San Luis Obispo with Malia and even had the opportunity to shoot her senior portraits so was excited when she reached out again.
When we decided on the Palace of Fine Arts, I was stoked, I knew the light would be stunning. However, we made a rookie mistake of doing the session on a Saturday when there were a million people, not to mention a photographer meet up. Nonetheless we made do, it was a great session with beautiful light and Malia and Alex’s chemistry was undeniable!
What better way to celebrate a year of wins, losses, challenges, accomplishments, disagreements, and love. I spent an evening with Ann and Kilol at Black Sands Beach in Marin. They danced and spun, falling and laughing as the sun dipped behind the rocks, to commemorate the first of year of the rest of their life together.
