When Alan and Samantha chose me to be their wedding photographer a few months ago, I felt incredibly privileged to have to opportunity to not only shoot such a wonderful couple, but also to capture the beauty of the venue they chose, Khimaira Farms.
However, being a year away, we decided to access another beautiful venue for engagement pictures. Lake Arrowhead is perfection in the fall, with the incredible warm hues of the changing leaves reflecting off the lake.
The couple was such a pleasure to work with, and it was easy to draw out beautiful images that really captured how in love they are. I was also able to bring out my newest onsite strobe kit, the Pro Photo B1, which worked wonderfully with the changing light and elements, as well as terrain.
We started off on one side of the lake against the vibrant colors of the foliage, and were able to do a wardrobe and area change to switch up the look and get a varied set of images.
As the sun set, the sky looked as if it was lit on fire, and as the day drew to a close we were able to take some incredible pictures against the setting sun that truly rounded out the session in the perfect way.
I’m looking forward to shooting the big event next year, and having the pleasure of giving them another set of captivating images that will always remind them of the beauty and joy on that special day.
