Amy and David were so stoked to be back in California. They had been living and working in Boston but now they are back in the Bay Area and are getting married August 1st at Nestldown. We are really excited for their wedding and I hope it shows in this beach session we did last week! They got wet suits on and everything. Of course, the wind was a little hectic, but we worked with it and always made sure the direction of the hair was flowing with the wind and not against it.
David is an avid photographer as well so we have lots of tech stuff to talk about while I shoot. They are in Africa right now doing a little pre wedding safari and have been sending me some links to their amazing shots on Flikr.
No joke……David says he found the sign that reads “Amy and David” and has an arrow pointing. He was driving in Iowa and saw it on the side of the road……Weird, that he is getting married to a girl named Amy and it worked so perfectly for that shot. Who says, things don’t happen for a reason?

For all you techies out there, I think this is a good example of balancing fill light with ambient light. Something pretty tricky to do when you are trying to capture raw emotion in the blink of an eye and can barely see your LCD because it’s so bright, and the photos don’t even show up on your LCD because you are shooting so fast the buffer is running slow!
