Escalon senior portraits
A few weeks ago I was out at Knights Ferry doing some incredible senior pics with Melissa Orosco (seriously, we had an awesome sunset!) and I had a chance to meet Melissa’s bestie, Alex, who came to the session for a couple “buddy” pics with Melissa. I guess I did something right because after seeing Melissa’s pictures Alex decided to come in for her senior portraits too, lucky me! Alex wanted to do something a little different so we headed to beautiful San Fransisco and an amazing session.
There’s a number of different locations I like to work at around SF when we head over there for a portrait session depending on the type of session and the personality of the client. For Alex we started at Ghirardelli Square with it’s great architecture and cool vibe before heading to some of the nearby parks and even the famous trolley station. We ended the day at one of my favorite beaches in the area with a beautiful sunset and a backdrop of the San Fransisco bay framed by the Golden Gate bridge, a wonderful way to end the session.
Alex and her family (along with Melissa!) were a lot of fun to hang out with and did a great job of hauling around all her clothes, . I’m looking forward to their family session soon! Hint, hint!
Here’s a few images from Alex’s session in SF, enjoy!

Austin Trickey – Beyer High 2015 – Modesto Senior Portraits
Austin’s a pretty awesome guy, of course he’s also my cousin so I may be a bit bias. He’s smart (you should hear the list of schools he’s applying to), he played water polo, has a cool car…I mean come on, mother’s lock up your daughters, right? Anyway, Austin wanted to go out-of-town for his senior portraits so we headed to San Fransisco for a day in the city and a chance to do something a bit different than what everyone else is doing. We started along the Embarcadero where we found some awesome tagged walls before moving on to a few of my other favorite SF portrait locations before ending the day at the ruins of the Sutro Baths and then some tacos at a nearby taqueria. It was a great session and an awesome day! Want to check out some of the images from Austin’s session? Here you go…

Engagement Sessions – Why I Love them.
What is the first thing you should do once you’ve booked the photographer for your wedding? Schedule your engagement session of course. Engagement portraits have not only become trendy over the last number of years but they serve a purpose beyond just having some beautiful pictures of you and your sweetheart. In my studio I consider an engagement session so important that I actually include it in all my wedding packages. Why do I place such an importance on great engagement images? I’m glad you asked.
The most important reason for having engagement portraits is to have beautiful images of you and your husband or wife-to-be. Engagement portraits are a chance to capture you at one of the happiest times in your lives, to showcase the love you have for each other and the excitement of getting to start your life together. After the session the images from the engagement session can be used in your home, to give as gifts to friends, parents or grandparents or featured as part of your wedding in a slideshow, a really cool signing book, save-the-date cards or so much more.
Getting to know you.
It’s soooo important for a bride and groom to fill comfortable with their photographer, after all we will be spending a lot of time together during your wedding day. Creating images that look natural and fun start with being relaxed and trusting that I’m going to make you look your best. The engagement session gives us a chance to work together before the wedding, it gives you the opportunity to start to feel comfortable in front of the camera and it allows me to see how you and your fiance interact with each other and what poses are more natural for you. It’s during the engagement session that we really get a chance to chat, joke around and start to become friends which will show in the images.
Wedding day perfection!
When your wedding day finally comes having the experience of the engagement session will make everything run much more smoothly as you’ll know what to expect and have a much better understanding of posing. In fact by the time we start to create the formal images many of my couples are acting like professional models, tilting their heads in just the right position and always remember to have a smile on their face just in case I see the perfect moment to create an image.
I think the engagement session is an important part of every wedding. When your big day is finally over the months of planning seems to have gone by in an instant. When a couple comes by the studio to view there proofs or album for the first time it’s great to get to see the joy of there face as they relive the entire day through the images I’ve made. The story of your wedding day is told through the images, the images in your album, within your signing book or displayed in your home and it all starts with the engagement session.

The art of Your story!
