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.

Erica and Matt are the proud pet parents of Biscuit.  They are getting married this coming October, and can’t have Biscuit at the wedding, so we celebrated her in the engagement session.

It’s been plastic fantastic camera theme with the holga at the studio lately. The above proof sheet are the film images, with on camera flash and the white seamless backdrop paper.

They say, “When you meet the love of your life, time stands still.”  – from the movie Big Fish. Caleb thought this way when he saw Ashley for the first time, he said your like popcorn- or something to that effect- so popcorn theme it was for the engagement session.  With 5 bags of popcorn, the fashion fan, and an assistant on a Iadder, we created this image. I love my couples- willing to be different and play in photos.

Some fun casualness.  Have I told you how much I LOVE the studio? I LOVE THE STUDIO.  Controlled lighting, a private wardobe  for you to change, the fashion fan, and lots of techno music.

Some fun Paparrazi style!

Jannkia fell in love with 2 wedding dresses, and decided rather than choose between the two, she would get both and wear one for the engagement session!  This fit perfectly for a formal photo shoot in the studio. For Jannika and Jason we created a classic and timeless look for their engagement session and included their fur babies who were quite dapper in their tuxes.

Jason has quite a sense of humor, so for the second look, he was allowed to get out of the tux, and showcase one of his funny shirts, as he owns many.  It is really important to capture who you are as a couple, rather than trying to copy another couple featured on pinterest.

We also went on location, special thanks to the dog Wranglers- VERY important if you are planning to include your furry friends.

So great to reconnect with my couple Carli & Nick, for their 10 year wedding anniversary portrait at the Bowers Museum.

 

We celebrated with some color implosion adox film grain is good!

Advice from the couple :

Always remember that love and marriage is a commitment through life, so you have to hold on tight!  Your spouse always deserves the best of you, not the leftovers at the end of the day.  Never take each other for granted.  You chose each other for life, so always show each other why you did.

My favorite things about Carli is her beauty, fun spirit and stylish ways.- Nik

I love Nick for his positivity and passion towards everything in life. He brings out the best in everyone!- Carli

They are into all things tiki, including adult beverages the Zombie is nick’s Fave.  So tiki Themed wardrobe was very appropriate. Congrats you two.
