Kim & Dan...lookin' good!


So here we are making the most of San Diego down at La Jolla Cove. I'd have to say that we've shot more engagement shoots at La Jolla Cove than any other location; and for good reason. It's really taught us to think outside the box in the sense that we deliberately try to shoot it different than any time prior. Initially you would think to go for an all sunny colorful look but with the light quality there and different areas of the cove you can get some really interesting vibes that aren't of the norm. Kim and Dan fully impressed Marissa and I with their comfort level in front of the camera. Tourists were gawking at times, almost curious as to whether they were celebrities or not ;). Kim and Dan definitely have quite a presence to them; and they're extremely accessible and warm in conversations. They took direction incredibly well and just went for it by having fun with every shot and we couldn't be happier with the results! Marissa and love to make our couples look their best; I think it's one of our main strengths. We love that editorial, Calvin Klein black and white and moody feel. I always try to think of that Chris Isaak video "Wicked Game" for inspiration in the back of my mind when trying to go for that sexy, grainy, black and white taste in the exposure. Sheesh, that reminds me I forgot to add grain to these shots! What a dope, oh well, forgive me and just imagine they're grainier for now :). I'll add it when they go in our main site's eng gallery. I suppose the high iso gave it some grain though. Can't wait for the wedding you guys! By the way if you can believe it there are like 300 other shots that I can't wait for you guys to see. Nice job you two!

I know exactly what you mean by having shot there more than anywhere else. It definitely stretches us as photogs. Excellent work on these. It's actually tough to tell where you are in most of them. Nice!
