One of my favorite things about photographing people is working with couples who are blissful and eager to mark the occasion–especially so when they have a fur baby who wants to join in the fun! Catherine and Kevin sought me out for their Pt. Reyes engagement session and specifically for my hybrid work in which I combine with digital and film mediums in the session. With their wedding over the summer in gorgeous Tuscany, this stylish couple had already book the amazingly talented Katie Grant to cover their destination wedding.
About the Session
One of the things I love most about Catherine is that she has a clear vision of the aesthetic she prefers. During our video interview she was able to tell me about the session she liked most from my site and why she was drawn to it, her plans for the wedding, and all about their love of film photography. It really helps when clients can articulate a specific goal for their session if they have one! Based on our conversations, I researched a little of Katie Grant’s work, which is breathtaking! I wanted to see a bit of her collective body of work and where she has some of her film processed to adjust my style a little bit to create an engagement gallery that would be cohesive with Catherine and Kevin’s wedding gallery.
Catherine mentioned the work of several fine art industry wedding professionals who’s work I also admire. With this information, I reached out to my favorite floral studio gal pals at Pineapple Petals Studio who have a romantic, yet playful fine art style of floral design to create a bouquet. As usual, the delivered a stunning piece! With white tones and soft grey inspired by Catherine’s wedding plans, the bouquet added the perfect amount of pretty!
About the Couple
I really love that Catherine and Kevin brought their adorable Frenchie on the shoot! The handsome fella really made the session feel personal. As an avid pet lover myself, it’s important to me to include my pets in important life events. Because we were hoping for fog and we knew that we needed a dog friendly location, we chose Pt. Reyes for the engagement session. You’d think that Pt. Reyes in February would deliver on the fog, but we ended up with clear, windy, and cold. Catherine and Kevin handled the biting wind like pros! You can hardly tell that it was in the 50s with several degrees of windchill during our session. I must hand it to them, while we were under some challenging conditions and their pup wasn’t ready to heed commands yet, with a great attitude and a pocket full of treats, we had a great time!
Congratulations to the lovely Catherine and Kevin!
