All this rain and gloomy weather is reminding me of Izaac's senior photo session.I have known Izaac since his 7th grade days, and can't believe he is going to be graduating South Fork High School soon! We shot his session over the Christmas Holiday, and you never know what kind of weather you are going to get in Humboldt County in December. We were originally going to do it in the Redwoods, along the Avenue of the Giants, but since it was so dark, we did a last minute change up and I am really glad we did. It was a darker day, and the fog is all real, which made for some more dramatic photos. Izaac's mom assisted me with the use of off camera flash which helped set the mood. I was totally in a Riverdale phase when shooting these pictures and Izaac totally reminded me of Jughead, the calm and cool character from the popular TV show. My newest obsession is Pretty Little Liars, so I am going to jump off and enjoy season three with this storm brewing outside!
Wow! Is it the middle of March already? Time is flying by this year! I have some senior sessions to catch up and first up is Jose! We did this session back in November. It was a rainy Humboldt County week, so we had to postpone the shoot until later on in the week. We were originally going to do it in Eureka, but opted to do it in the Southern Humboldt area at a great location with a unique basketball court, since Jose wanted basketball incorporated into his senior photos. Did you know Parky's Pics offer a location incentive? Ask about it when inquiring for your senior pictures. : )
Rob and Nikki got married on a cold, drizzly day in February. They decided at the lat minute that they wanted to do a first look so we all piled into Nikki's car with Rob in a blindfold in the back and drove to the Elk River Road Covered Bridge. There's nothing like building anticipation while wearing a blindfold in the backseat of the car your future bride is in. Luckily the rain held over until the ceremony. They transformed an ordinary red barn on Elk River Road into a twinkling Pinterest paradise. The barn had such a cozy feel. You felt protected from the colder, unpredictable elements outside. It was smaller and intimate; perfect for this DJ Duo who are the amazing owners of Crazed Music Company. I have worked with them on many weddings, so it was so nice to see them get married in such a beautiful little barn. They filled the dance floor, because they are experts at that of course. : ) All in all it was a beautiful wedding for a beautiful couple. It was completely them. Welcoming and kind, and made you feel right at home. Like I was living inside a country music song.
