Okay, so it is a little wierd doing an engagment session for your own kid. No way am I that old. On the other hand what a great gift it is to be able to take these photos. I’m glad they allowed me to do it. It was nice to spend some time with them on the Ventura Pier, on the beach, and at the Getty Center in Los Angeles. The weather turned out to be our friend, and everything turned out perfectly.
NO – I will not be taking photos at their wedding (well, okay. I may have my camera out for a few shots). That will be done by Charise Proctor – Photography by Charise. I came across Charise when an employee of mine was getting married and looking for a photographer. Since at the time I was not taking anything professionally, and she was my employee, it didn’t feel right for me to do the work. After talking to photographers, she would run everything past me to see what I thought. I think by far Charise had the done the best work, and more importantly, had all the right answers to her questions. One of the most important things about hiring a photographer is how you get along with them and how your personalities mix. They will be playing a huge part of the day – make sure you like them and get along with them very well.
Well – it turned out great and Charise was a hit. So, we are using her as well. I’m looking foward to watching her in action.
Anyway – a few proofs from our day are below.
