engagement photography studio orange county nicole caldwell 09After meeting at an 80’s party, he was in a Don Johnson Miami Vice shirt, she, a mini skirt and some neon,  80’s theme it was for the engagement session!  With a  soundtrack of Hungry Eyes, Hit Me With Your Best Shot, and Footloose, to name a few, we had the perfect 80’s vibe in the studio to create some fun non generic engagement photos.

Plastic Fantastic: Shooting some cinestill film with a Holga, a plastic camera, was a must, since it was produced in the 80’s.

I like for my couples to have FUN.  I encourage them to play, and silly stuff like jumping.

I love the studio.  Privacy, controlling the light, temperature.  No photo bombs. Techno music, adult beverages. etc etc. A private wardrobe and makeup room for you to change in.  Enough relaxation to be yourself in photos.

orange-county-engagement-film-photographer-nicole-caldwell-06We began the engagement shoot at the studio, with some sparkling white wine, and of course my inspirational techno fashion music.  The shoot started off formal on the white backdrop,then went into a casual look using the natural window light here in the studio.

Moving from the studio to the second location, Irvine regional park, rich in green thanks to all the rain we have been getting here is Southern California,  I brought along my Hasselblad film camera, 150 mm lens, and shot some ilford film. Below is the proof sheet I hand printed in the darkroom, with Delta 400 stand developed in Acufine.
