Magical Meghan

Yep, Meghan’s trash the dress/bridal shoot pretty much rocks. I have a lot of ♥ for the night time set – especially the ‘will marry for food’ ones.

She actually had the session over a year after she married JP because she really wanted to do something a bit more ‘outthere’ in her dress (which is gorgeous by the way and made by Demetrios.)

Her natural skills and comfort in front of the camera combined with her glorious wedding dress and awesome personality made for one of the most enjoyable shoots I’ve ever done. We started out in downtown SD on the prowl for some graffiti, we lucked out when we found an old parking lot with a sweet car and bright graffiti. She was willing to try whatever we suggested with a smile on her face the entire time (like hold a sign on the side of the freeway…..Meghan, did I mention I love you? It’s true).  After downtown, we went to Ruby’s Diner where her and JP had their first date…..I remember walking through the mall where everyone was staring at us, and I ask Meghan, “do you feel uncomfortable with all these people staring and pointing?” her answer? “I LOVE IT!” Which made me love her. After Ruby’s we headed to our house for some night shots, where Meghan displayed her magical powers (check out the last picture and you’ll totally understand). Meghan and JP, we had such a great time with you and I can’t wait until we hang out again very soon. In the meantime, I’ll be watching for you on America’s Next Top Model!!!!!

Thanks to Rachel for sharing these – more from Studio Castillero to come soon!

Water Babies

As always, I have a plethora of joy to share today so I think I need to get right on it. Yesterday I was described by two separate people as ‘the hardest working blogger I know’ so I reckon I need to keep that perception running with these little gems.

I adore Jacqueline & Daniel’s cute ‘water babies’ engagement session sent in by the delightful Jessica Purvis. Can’t believe I’ve never seen water rings used in a shoot before – too adorable for words!

Infatuation.

Is is possible to have an addiction to a set of photographers? Because I definitely have a really intense Tinywater habit. Every day I need to get my fix…and it feels gooooood.

One day I will travel to Sacramento and track down Caroline & Daniel as I hold them personally responsible for my infatuation.

ps make sure you click on the thumbnails to get the full effect of fabulousness.

Two Years Later…

Blaine & Shanni didn’t have a day after shoot, but after two years of marriage decided it was about time to do so and who better to shoot them but Shanni herself – she is after all the most rock n roll photographer they know. The couple love to go for Sunday drives and Shanni had always wanted to shoot a couple at this dried up riverbed,  so why not us?! she told me – why not indeed.
