05 May Heather + Paul | Northern California Couples Photoshoot
Heather and Paul’s session was awesome.
True Story: Heather is my hairstylist. She also collaborates with me on photo shoots for my clients styled session packages. YOU CAN CHECK OUT HEATHERS WORK HERE! Heather came to my studio for some photo shoot prep for another awesome client Tashjane’. While doing Tash’s hair, she saw the dress pictured hanging on my #LMCStyleCloset rack and SWOONED! Little did she know, I was pretty sure it was TOTALLY her size and would be great for an upcoming shoot with her partner Paul. When I got this, I totally had her cute self in mind. The fact she pointed it out without me mentioning it, made me smile… She tried it on and BOOM! Fabulousness! I’m loving this floral maxi dress trend right now! Next, we talked about styling Paul her handsome beau. We wanted something neutral and not too matchy with her gorgeous dress, but something that would still compliment her style. I’m a sucker for rolled up sleeves and a good brown oxford shoe aren’t you?
Paul and Heathers connection is clear as day. We started off a little earlier than usual, since Auburn is a bit of a drive from Sacramento.
The start of our session was on a hill overlooking a GIANT valley in Auburn. It was bright and sunny so I instead of fighting the direct sunlight, I worked with it, and with the help of my trust assistant (my husband that day) we used my silver reflector to make the most out of the sunshine.
Heather and Paul giggled, danced and smiled in the sunshine, but it was getting pretty warm and I was hoping for a little more greenery, so we followed highway 49 to the River Confluence for some more photos down the hill.
I found this plant covered rock wall. How could I NOT use it?
The light was so dreamy. I had to capture it.
I hope you enjoyed this couples session. I love that Heather and Paul were able to do a ‘Just Because’ session with me. You don’t need a major milestone in your life for fantastic photos. Sometimes you need them… just because. <3
