Good Evening Everyone!
I have one word that pretty much describes today… WHEW! I’m totally whipped!
Four days ago, I was approached by my good friend and Esquire Photography Partner; Linda from A Wedding Store in Long Beach to meet with Mike from P.F.T. regarding doing a Mock Wedding Shoot at his multi-million dollar beach-front mansion in Belmont Shore. It was so last minute, that I had to leave early from a client meeting where Katherine finished wrapping things up and hopped on the Ducati to meet up with Linda & Mike.
After our meeting, the crack squadron of awesome people here at Esquire Photography scrambled round the clock for four days to gather models and wardrobe from all walks of life and dress shops in the Southern California area for the shoot. All the while, Linda and her dynamic team of people took care of the details to accessorize the shoot.
Within four days, we were able to have a multi-ethnic, sexually diverse group of models that showed up with the best attitude and willingness to get the job done in probably one of the shortest amounts of time, I’ve had to direct & shoot.
AND! We even had ourselves a bit of a “Night Romantics” shoot at and around the beach with a few of the models that are just as die-hard as we are for taking advantage of a creative opportunity when the juices are flowing.
Everyone was so awesome and we couldn’t have done it without their help! Along with Linda from A Wedding Store, we also had the incredible talent of Leanna Rodgers; Makeup Artist extraordinaire from Events On Location (562.688.7109) and Kellie Shelton – who is one heck of a designer AND commercial photographer (Not to mention “Estudious Girl In Glasses – stand in).
Here are just a few samples from the shoot that we captured through the lens. I hope you enjoy them as much as we all did at the shoot – cheers!
