I don’t normally get a “vision” for how I’m going to photograph my clients. Mostly, I take it as it comes. The light, the mood, the moment… it gets created very spontaneously and I don’t have much of an agenda.
This session was different. I saw it fully formed in my mind several hours before: A vintage slip, magic hour sunshine, sexy, pretty, the golden light in Denise’s curly hair, a wheaty field…. I was giddy at the thought and texted her from my walk along the Berkeley Marina.
Do you have a vintage slip? I’m thinking sexy, sexy magic hour sunshine… !
I didn’t hear back from her for hours. Did she not get the text? Did she not like the idea? Was that whole sexy undergarment thing inappropriate? I was immediately embarrassed that I had asked. I called her to check in and heard someone else’s voicemail entirely. I was confused until I realized I had been texting the wrong Denise!
Me and all the Denises had a good laugh about it (out of context it sounded like a racy invitation!) and it turns out Denise brought a sexy little slip dress anyway. My vision was realized!
Congratulations on your engagement you two! It was such an honor and pleasure to capture your playful connection, romance and true love. Swoon-worthy you guys.
