Carlsbad Beach, CA

This year we have photographed at several locations show in this blog.  What are some of the important things to think about?

  1. Talk to your photographer to pick out the best, Location, Location, Location.  Sechrestphotos can help you find that spot that is meaningful to you and also will provide amazing photographic memories.
  2. Alan Sechrest from Sechrestphotos suggest choosing the “golden hour” as you time of day,  The “golden hour” provides the most flattering light for romance.
  3. When photographing at the beach, we suggest cache pants for the man with a white shirt or faded jeans.  The women in a solid color such as pastels or white.  Your attire will impact your pictures.
  4. Preparing the clients for the shoot to make sure they feel comfortable.  Sechrestphotos provides a relaxed atmosphere.  We take test shots to prepare our clients.  We talk and get to know each other.  Our ‘laid back’ approach allows us to capture the real emotions and moments that our clients desire.

July 4th Wedding in San Clemente, Celebrities, Musians, Air Show, and fireworks…. WOW

When Tom booked Sechrestphotos to shoot his wedding reception in San Clemente on the 4th of July,  we hadn’t a clue of what a fabulous party we would be attending.

Tom who is a writer for Disney Engineering knows lots of great musicians. We were privy to Susan Anton singing to our bride and groom and many other famous musicians going on and off the stage including Grammy Award Winner, Gordon Goodwin. There was approximately 100 guests.

Sechrestphotos was hired to capture the event. Tom is very laid back and insisted we enjoy the party, offering us drinks and dinner and wanted to make certain we had a good time. We indeed did!

Our challenges were to photograph some traditional family and friend shots but get the newly married couple with the San Clemente fireworks going off in the background. Tom and Adelajda were very busy. Adelajda’s family came from Poland and Tom was on stage playing with the various musicians.

Alan pulled it off beautifully. There was also a fly over by a small fleet of WWII military airplanes.
