Hey guys, meet Vanessa and Luis! I had the privilege of meeting them on a cloudy, yet beautiful, day in San Diego. We decided to hike to a beach, and luckily for us, the tide was low which = perfect day for an in-water photo shoot! Before I go any further let me just say IF YOU'RE THINKING OF DOING AN IN-WATER SHOOT YOU SHOULD DEF READ THIS! Another thing, pplllleeaassseeeeeee remember a change of clothes. So far none of my clients have forgotten this but you know that one person who always forgets, yeah that's me.
So now that you've decided you want an in-water photo shoot, the time has come to pick the location-the part that makes or breaks it all. *cue dramatic music* BAH BAH BAAHHHHHHH. Each beach has its own personality. Some beaches have rocks instead of sand and others aren't as easily accessible and require hiking. From experience, I've learned the prettier the beach, the more work required to get there...I know right, of course, it would be that way.
Speaking of pretty, Vanessa and Luis were a pretty awesome couple to work with! They were so willing to get that perfect shot. Sure the had some falls... ok, they had lots of falls, but those low tides can get narly haha! They quickly realized it was not as easy as it looks, yet that didn't deter them from enjoying the session and each other. It's pointless of getting aggravated with the tides, instead HAVE FUN! You're going to get wet, so why try to stay dry? After a couple of falls and me cutting myself, we prevailed and got awesome pictures!! Yes, yes I know thank you *bows*. Because they were able to have a "go with it" attitude (since the only other option would be to control the tides), the sparks between them started to fly. This made my job all the more rewarding. Looking through their photos you would not have even though of the type of brutality we endured haha! That is how awesome they are! They were so prepared-clothes, shoes, undergarments, even a hose. COME ON! I need to be a quarter of prepared as they were! They were awesome!
