Brandon + Erica | Pasadena Engagement Session

Editing a single photo is like having a baby. So imagine editing like 200 or 300 and you might begin to understand the process…;-) I’ve been super busy trying to find the edits….here is what occurred.

Erica has been an incredibly special friend of mine since college days…she was one of the first people I met in college freshman year and has seen my work since the beginning of my days…back in the day when I was cranking out unattractively clash-y and contrasty pictures down to a T. Basic as it is, she was the first to teach me how to introduce myself to new people and feel like a million bucks doing it.

She also taught me a thing or two about class and is in fact probably the classiest girl I know. Together with Brandon they are the classiest couple I know. If you ever get to know them, you will not find one negative thing to say about them. Don’t you just love couples like that?

My goal on this shoot was to capture their love for one another in the most authentic way. I like my photography to be real, breathy and airy. I never told them to smile or fake a laugh once in this photoshoot. Their passion for life and loyalty are possibly the most contagious of people.  I had a blast with this shoot. And then it rained and even in the rain they stuck with me! Their love for one another is raw and beautiful – sunshine or rain (literally). I didn’t have to tell them to do a whole lot…they were naturals.Her radiant smile pierces through these photographs and makes you want to smile too. And the way he looks at her shows just how terribly in love they are with each other. And I loved capturing every minute of the hour I had with them. So excited for July 6, 2012!!!!
