Stunning Bride, Awesome Destination, Handsome Groom, and Beautiful Day…

Sometimes it all works out beautifully. For this couple they had the destination, The Montage Hotel in Laguna Beach, CA. The weather had rain predicted, but it graciously waited till after the ceremony and pictures. The handsome groom was totally devoted to his bride. Their love shows in their gallery.
When a photographer has all these factors present; they take as many pictures as they can for as long a they can. Please enjoy these images, Captured in the moment!

The couple enjoyed their day and each other during the photo shoot. This shows clearly in the images.

Graduation Shoots Mark and Identify a “Real Time” Life Event.

 

After completing many Graduation Shoots I have learned some very important “Best Practices” I’d like to share.

 

  1.  Location, Location, Location!  Pick a location that has some meaning to the graduate. Laguna Beach, Downtown San Diego, and Local Parks are all good choices just to name a few. Talk to your graduate for what they are interested in.
  2. Outfits: Educate the graduate and their family on what will look good at the location.  Suggest several outfit changes. This gives more meaning and insight to who the graduate is.
  1. Props: Props are fun. If the graduate is interested in reading, writing, sports, etc. Bring some items to utilize in the shoot.
  2. Timing: Pick a time of day that the light is useful to the shoot.

  1. Last but certainly not least:  Make sure the experience is fun for the graduate and the family.  I would suggest take a few family shots after you capture the graduate.
