If your dress is just sitting in your closet taking up space that could be used for some ofÂ thoseÂ awesome dresses you just purchased at Saks Fifth Avenue, whats better then getting one more stunning and over the top fun, fashion forward trash the dress session out of it? That’s what my 2012 Bride Sara did with hers. She called me up and said, “Nicole! I need to get rid of this dress! It’s taking up precious clothing space! Let’s do a trash the dress!” Originally we planned to do something that involved all herÂ favoriteÂ foods, butÂ because we were going to Baker Beach in San Francisco she Â didn’tÂ want the seagull’s thinking it was a free for all chow down fest and attacking her. So we nixed that Idea and decided to use theÂ beautyÂ around us.Â Â As well as Â some awesome colored corn starch. Here is one of the images we got from the set. Talk about a stunner!
The weatherÂ couldn’tÂ have been better for the day of Sarah and Adam’s engagement. As wishyÂ washy as it has been, it’s finally getting better and on this day itÂ happenedÂ to be perfect! We started at the Palace of Fine Arts and moved over to Baker Beach, both in SanÂ Francisco.
This is why I love this city. You comeÂ acrossÂ some of the most random things. While at the palace we saw this guy making huge bubbles! So I thought it would be cute to waltz my way over and ask him to join in our shoot and incorporate the bubbles! It was super fun and added lots of cuteness to their session.
I love when my couples go the extra mile to get an awesome shot. Even if It’sÂ freezing!
Georgia and Colin wanted to have a super-relaxed and very naturalÂ engagementÂ session. We went to the Botanical Gardens in San Francisco. I have never been there before and was amazed at how huge the place is… andÂ gorgeous! They wanted theirÂ engagement photos really natural with very little posing. Just really organic.Â Â I’m a lifestyle photographer, so I document what’s happening as well as set up natural looking poses. When it comes to portrait time, I like to step in and create a visuallyÂ appealingÂ scene. Â I set something up, let you getÂ comfortableÂ with it and make it your own, then step back snap a few shots. When we got to Baker Beach, Georgia and Colin got into their groove and wanted to just play and have fun. I captured their moment andÂ suggested a few things as they went along to get some good looking photos. MissionÂ accomplished! We got some amazing shots that areÂ trulyÂ them!
