Stephanie had a beautiful wedding, but when she got her pictures back she was not happy with the images. And no, just for the record, I was not her wedding photographer.
So Stephanie opted for a post-wedding bridal session. These sessions are really starting to become popular and I sure understand why. I mean, what else do you do with your dress after you’ve gotten married in it? Some brides have portraits taken with their groom post-wedding too! I love the idea and hope to do more of these types of shoots in the future.
I took these images of Stephanie at the Sacramento state capital. There are so many areas to photograph and the grounds are just gorgeous. We ended up at a church across the street. I guess it’s symbolic that the dress would end where it started.
Meet my new friend Jamal….oh wait I forgot that I have to call him J. Redd now. :]
Mr. Redd is an up and coming musician. When he asked me to take pictures to update his portfolio, I was honored. J is from the Bay area and not too familiar with Sacramento, so I suggested we go to old town. We spent the afternoon walking around the area. I was showing off our rustic little downtown scene and getting some great shots. J’s real easy going and laid back (as you may be able to tell from the images) and I enjoyed taking his picture.
For those of you who like R&B music, here’s a link to J. Redd’s music site.
Best of luck to you J.
Don’t forget us little people in Sac-town when you make it big!
If you’ve looked through my images, you’ve probably noticed a pattern of mostly on location shots. I love to get outside and photograph people in beautiful environments. Natural light is just so wonderful! However, traditional studio lighting can be fun too and doesn’t always have to be traditional if you don’t want it to be. My studio gear is 100% portable and I have a large variety of backgrounds. I can take studio shots at your location or you can come to me. The possibilities are only as limitless as our imaginations!
Take these recent pictures of Mitchell and Megan as an example. Check out what fun we had shooting inside.
