Nothing but love…

Graham and Janet are getting married and I am lucky enough to photograph their wedding this summer.

They wanted to have engagement photos for announcements. Graham, who is an emerging photographer, said that he tried to set the camera up and take their own engagement photos with a remote, but he said it was harder than he thought to get the photos to look natural.

So we made a date in Golden Gate Park, and we did a quick one hour engagement shoot with their new love, Jasmine.

Our mini-photo shoot was just enough time for us to get to know each other a little better, and for them to practice being in front of the camera, and for me to capture natural photos of them being in love, with each other… and with Jasmine.

And then Jasmine had enough of the love…

You can’t always get what you want

but if you try sometimes, you just might find, you get what you need.

That’s the way the Rollei goes… you win some, you lose some, or at least you get something entirely different. This may not be the photo my mom was hoping for when she stood beside this ginormous geranium bush in SF’s Botanical Gardens… it seems my Rollei was tired of taking boring touristy photos. The… “here’s me next to the___” photos… so it added some flare, literally. Good thing this wasn’t for a real assignment, don’t know that an editor would take this, but you never know.
