Radhika and Arpit I Engagement Portraits I Crystal Cove Beach, California

Thursday, December 13th, 2012

 

There’s no end to the confusion in working with a bride with the same name. When we were planning this shoot in California I was waiting for an email reply and it turned out that Arpit had sent it to the wrong Radhika…his fiance instead of me. We have the same nickname too so no help there.

Although, like many photographers, I have my favorite portrait locations it was fun to have the chance to explore some place new on the West Coast. Sunny California wasn’t so sunny, but we lucked out half way through the shoot when the sun peaked out for a bit. That perfectly coincided with a change of outfits from formal to jeans and together that combination made the magic happen. You never know what will make things click (no pun intended) that turns a good photoshoot into one with really cool, beautiful images, but when it happens it’s very exciting….jump up and down exciting. What can I say. I’m a sucker for what mother nature does all on her own. Crystal Cove State Park is a beautiful location to photograph.  The photographs on the stairs were taken within minutes of the silhouette…just goes to show that what National Geographic photographer Sam Abell once told me is true…”when the light is shining and everyone is looking one way make sure you turn around and see what’s happening behind you.”

Betsy and Sibin I Engagement Portraits I Dumbo, Brooklyn

Wednesday, December 12th, 2012

Betsy and Sibin’s Puerto Rico wedding is coming up super fast….right after New Year’s.  I’m excited to be shooting their San Juan wedding. And looking forward to some warm weather  (just a little bit).  We managed to sneak this shoot in ahead of their January destination wedding in one of my favorite areas to shoot.  It was nice to see Jane’s Carousel up and running again after Superstorm Sandy flooded the park.
