Soka University Wedding Photographer – Christin & Tam!12:23 AM
Christin and Tam’s wedding day…what an incredibly fun shoot! We spent most of the day at Soka University and I could not have been more excited to take advantage of the space. Before the ceremony we knocked out an awesome creative set with the Entourage in front of the campus lake. Shooting around high noon I had to be careful with the intense sunlight but all was good and we ended up with a vibrant series of shots with tons of natural contrast. I especially appreciated Christin and Tam’s white dove release after their vows where the secret goal was to capture as many birds in one frame as possible. =)
Christin and Tam are definitely my kind of couple, possessing an affinity for creativity and a deep trust in the process. Around sunset we made our way up to the top of the hill to catch the light-rays against the residual canyon fog. This was awesome…but also a bit fleeting as the sun was rapidly disappearing so we had to work ultra fast. I remember during that segment an overwhelming feeling of appreciation towards them for their willingness to brave the darkening sky and happily shoot with me during their cocktail hour.
Photography is fun.
An incredibly encouraging review from Christin and Tam:
I heard about SimplyTwo through my friend. She told me this photographer gets booked up fast! So I looked through John's portfolio and I was very impressed. He even shoots for wedding magazines - wow! I was very happy he was available on our wedding day. He replied to our inquiry the same day and every email thereafter, he responded quickly. John was flexible as well. He worked with us to customize a package to fit our needs. It was more than what I originally wanted to spend, but wedding photos are worth the investment. They stay with you forever!
On the big day, we had so much fun with John. He was personable and professional. We could tell he's an expert at what he does. He knew if the lighting was too harsh, he guided us to be natural in our poses and I think he helped out our videographer too! So far we have only seen some photos on his camera display and a couple on Facebook and they are just breathtaking. We can't wait to see all the pictures!
