A Week at West Coast School!

A Week at West Coast School!

   Part of my commitment to providing clients with great images is taking advantage of educational opportunities with top industry professionals. This summer, I was able to work with Rick Ferro, a leading photographer in the wedding field at the annual West Coast School.  I was able to spend a week of all-day study, with hands-on shooting. Rick set up many shots posted here, and gave detailed instruction on posing and lighting, but students also were able to set up their own, both in-studio and on location.  I can't wait to put much of this into practice at my upcoming wedding! Here's some samples of what I was able to capture during this great class.  In a future post, I'll let you in on a little secret.  Shhhh! 

A Forever Love

A Week at West Coast School!

True Love.  People write books about it.  People make movies about it.  People are always searching for it.  Well, Bob and Dianne have found it!  Celebrating their 50th Anniversary this June,  three years late, these two gathered friends and family to celebrate with them. Children and grandchildren gathered around, and they danced like newlyweds at the Sun Lakes Clubhouse and cut the cake again. The love between them was palpable, and it touched the hearts of everyone who saw it.  Congratulations! 

Summer Senior Session

A Week at West Coast School!

     This young lady was on the ball and scheduled her Senior Portrait Session in the late summer before her last year of high school got crazy.  She rocked it out, too!   We had a blast playing with different looks, locations and outfits.  She went from girl-next-door to sophisticated with just a simple change of location and clothing.  I thoroughly enjoyed spending time with her and giving her exactly what she wanted for her custom-designed album. 

Sweethearts Always

A Week at West Coast School!

     Eighth grade sweethearts. Yep. Eighth grade and still going strong, and both as sweet as could be!  It was my pleasure to be able to document this very special day for Cherie and Jim.  We spent the day together from get-ready at the hair salon, to the moment they had their send off to their honeymoon. The wedding was held at St. Frances X. Cabrini Church and the reception was at the Calimesa Country Club and Golf Course .  These two were surrounded by loving family and friends who made the day one to remember.
