Jennifer and Andy at Dana Point Harbor

Dana Point, California.

We met Jennifer and Andy down at the Dana Point Harbor because Jennifer's parents used to live around there. I haven't been down there for a shoot so I was quite excited.

They were as friendly and fun as I had expected from our email exchanges. The shoot went by so fast because again, as we do with a lot of our awesome clients, we have so much fun just sharing stories about each other during the session. Jennifer told me afterward that we made them feel very comfortable, and that makes me so happy because that's one of the keys to getting the best looking photos.

We strolled around the harbor with the beautiful boats and headed over to the beach and park next door. Jennifer and Andy are going to be too modest to admit this, but they are one good looking couple!

Andy said that he loves black and white photos, and since I haven't really been able to show a lot of my black and whites here, this is a good opportunity to display them. It's a completely different type of editing when it comes to black and white. The control of shadows, midtones, and highlights are extremely important, as well as the handling of the different color channels. I am pleased at how it turned out.


  1. Jennifer & Andy - What beautiful pictures, they look so comfortable with the camera and love the black & white

  2. Absolutely beautiful!! But how could they not be??? You guys are awesome together and it shows in each say a thousand words. These collectively say "Love".

    Love and long distance hugs,
