It has been overall really dry here in the Bay Area this winter but just as we set out for our e-shoot with Poonam and Krishan it started raining. Rescheduling would have been difficult since the two both traveled quite far to get to San Francisco for our shoot! Poonam came from Bakerfield, and Krishan from Atlanta, Georgia. Luckily they had just bought a brand new umbrella that worked perfectly for keeping them dry, as well as, a cool prop for our shoot!
Although it was raining and cold Poonam and Krishan bold held up quite well and we have a lot of images we all love from the shoot. It was extremely hard just to pick a few for this blog post. At any one given background you see in the images below, there were 5-10 other good poses and expressions. But for the sake of your download speed I will show you just a select few.
Engagement shoots are really about having fun and doing new things, both for the couple and for myself. It is the time for us to really get to know our couples, shoot from the hip sometimes and just forget about photography. At other times during the shoot it is an opportunity for us to try new things like lighting techniques we want to practice more of so when we are hard pressed for time at a wedding, we will know how to do it better and faster!
Being in front of the camera for a portrait shoot should definitely be a great experience as well. You get to look amazing and be photographed at amazing locations with the person who you love in the world most! Better yet, you get a fun and relaxed photographer who will capture those candid moments, but also help you pose some shots so you get the cool fashion looks and artistic images that our clients hire us for.
