Sunsets, City, and Pie - Touring San Diego with CC and Jun!1:36 PM
Having fun with those ideas.
Dear friends and readers, the above pretty much sums up how I’ve always approached the creative planning aspect of my shoots and CC & Jun’s engagement session turned out to be the perfect example of this! =)
It all started with a rational interpretation of the irrational Pi, or 3.14, or as we’ve seen in textbooks: π – which also happens to be their wedding date! Now here’s where things get a little crazy…Pi sounds a lot like Pie, which is delicious – and that is fact. So we kicked off the shoot by carefully merging the sweet with the science. How, you ask? Well that part is simple – you take a highly compressed piece of shaped Carbon (the engagement ring) and suspend it upright in a dense composite of sugar, starch, and naturally occurring flora (a fruit pie). We’ve got the results below and it made for a pretty cool Save-the-date on the couples’ wedding website!
Now that we’ve got our minds working a bit, let’s visit some other ideas for the shoot. CC & Jun met, live, and work in San Diego so it made sense for me to travel down and spend the day exploring their favorite significant locations and visual themes. They love natural landscapes, hiking trails, and the ocean but also appreciate San Diego’s gorgeous skyline at night. In between those two, we also wanted to work in their first date at Tapex, CC’s love for stuffed animals, and pay a visit to Balboa’s legendary park. Let’s see how we did…
