Hey guys! Had a really fun time with Alisyn and Matt. They were pretty freaking awesome and we hit it off right away. They were just so energetic and full of joy and happiness that capturing them on “film” was so easy. =) They travelled from Central-ish California to Capitola for their engagement session. The water, sand, waves brought them back to when they lived by the sea. We took pictures at some familiar locations and some new ones for me. Did you know Capitola had their own gondola??? I surely didn’t. =) Well on with the pictures.

We went on a weekday afternoon, so there wasn’t a mass crowd at the beach. We were able to take shots with angles that I’ve done before and some that I haven’t.

They decided they wanted to walk along the water. You can tell in one of the pictures that was water was typical NorCal ocean temperature (freezing).

Had a lot of fun with the pier. Totally helped that there was no one on the beach. =)

From the beach we walked to Shadowbrook Restaurant. It’s the restaurant with the gondola. We found a quaint little park and an old school Volvo on the way there.

Ah Shadowbrook. I totally didn’t know this restaurant was here. Totally didn’t know they had a gondola down to the restaurant. But makes for fun pictures. =D

Aren’t they just awesome together? All these pictures were taken with no direction from me. =D

Man, my first Austin engagement… Actually it’s my first Texas engagement and will be subsequently my first Texas and Austin wedding in March. =) How freaking exciting. Amanda and Matt flew me out to Austin for a couple days to show me around town, have fun and of course, to take their engagement shots. haha. But honestly, the entire day that we went shooting all three things melded perfectly together. It didn’t really seem like work but also had a sense of seriousness in the day.

We drove all around Austin. From downtown hotels near 6th Street to many, many different kinds of parks (there’s the regular parks to the food trailer parks). I learned tons of interesting facts too. Did you know Whole Foods originated in Austin? Totally did not know that one of my favorite grocery stores started in TX.

Speaking of food, the grub in TX was RIDICULOUS. So good. I can’t wait to go back to Austin to shoot this amazing couple’s wedding, but also to grub it out. =) But enough talk, time for pictures!

Where else in the world are you going to find a longhorn couch in a 5 star hotel, which has won the “Five Diamonds Award” (Ocean’s Thirteen)? Yeah, no where but Austin.

In case you didn’t know where we were. hahaha. =P

Did I tell you how much I love shooting in parking lots? Yeah, one of my favorite locations regardless of what city we’re in.

There was TONS of green and forest-y areas in Austin. I thought TX was all desert. My bad. =P

Blog, it’s been a while. Joanna and Andrew are so cute together. They’re from Hawaii and were back in the bay visiting family when we got together to have this shoot. Both our schedules totally weren’t working together. But there was one day that we were able to have this shoot. It just so happened that this day was one of the prettiest days of the week. It was a pretty gloomy holiday week, full of overcast and rain. But it started clearing up the day before our shoot and in the morning of the shoot, the weather was perfect (albeit a little cold)! We first checked out downtown Palo Alto and then headed to Half Moon Bay for some shots. The light in both locations at that time was incredible! I couldn’t have felt more blessed by God that day. Awesome times! Well enough of me talking here are the pics:

Perfect lighting man. From both sides and enough to light up BOTH of their faces. awesomeness!

There was this lifesaver by the beach, we had TONS of fun with it. haha. =P
