Good morning from Huntington Beach everyone! I have a terrific Engagement Shoot/Family Portrait Shoot to share with you that I did with Juana & Rodrigo and their two sons; Nick & Max. I first chatted with Juana after she had seen what I did with Ruthie & Anthony for their Engagement Shoot in downtown Los Angeles. She like how I captured the emotion and romance between Ruthie & Anthony and wanted something similar for her portrait photo shoot.
Then over time – Juana and I had the opportunity to kick around ideas of what she would like to do along with her & Rodrigo being able to see me “in action” at Ruthie & Anthony’s Wedding at the Wedgewood Golf Club – where they were guests as they’re friends of Ruthie & Anthony as well.
What I loved about Juana & Rodrigo’s Engagement Photo Shoot was that they wanted to have a variety of environments and include their two sons. So we decided on the Fullerton Arboretum – which gave us the best of so many environments to shoot it. And, I really think that having their sons there made their shoot more personal and it gave me an opportunity to have some quality time with their youngest son; Max. So when their wedding day happens next year, Max will be familiar with me and that “ice breaker” time of working together is reduced, if not eliminated.
So before your scroll down to enjoy a sample of some of the fun we had for their Engagement/Family Portrait Shoot and you want to have a similar experience for your shoot, feel free to get in touch with me anytime.
Without further ado, here is a delicious treat of a few of my favourite portraits from their Engagement Shoot/Family Portrait Shoot. You can also see the rest of their collection on Pictage – cheers!
PS, Be sure to check out the latest episode of How To Make The Most Out Of Your Wedding Day. I had the honour of sitting down and chatting with Alan Katz. He’s a professional wedding officiant located in downtown Long Beach and we had a total blast (which is totally evident in the outtakes). A must see indeed!
