Engagement: Becky & Ben – continued


This is one of the most memorable photo sessions for me thus far this year. I’ve been away from home 70% of the time over a span of 2 weeks on several mini trips, and honestly I was a little home sick. But then again Becky and Ben really made it worthwhile for me rewarding me with some images I personally really enjoy.

As I mentioned before, we travelled to the Central Coast around Solvang, Buellton, Lompoc area in June, and it was glooooooomy… It really got us worried the day we arrived before the photo session because we couldn’t see the sun at all. Luckily the weather opened up in the afternoon on both days, and gosh it was indeed a lovely day when we finally got our cameras out! :-)

This one above is one of my favorites that day where we just busted our ways into a wild flower field. Becky and Ben looks so sweet in this picture even thou they thought they looked nervous. :)








This is another one of my favorites in the bunch. Becky’s eyes really speaks to you telling you that she’s in love in Ben’s arm in this picture. This was shot outside of that same cute green barn house that is… a wine shop (I think?).


Towards the end of the late afternoon after our short break at Solvang, we stopped over a few wineries to take pictures to try to get the shots that I believe Becky and Ben envisions.


By now the love birds really warmed up and I really love their natural interactions and their smile.


An abandoned rusty truck we found along the way heading out from Solvang provided a slightly different look that you would rarely find in LA.. ;-) Their outfits and the bouquet works pretty well in my opinion.




and of course… I have to spice things up a little with my vibrant colors… trying not to overdo this… ;-)




and finally we wrapped up the day at Alma Rosa winery with some beautiful flowers, a cute house, beautiful sunlight, a cute and very fat kitty who scared Becky twice, and we headed home with memory cards full of pretty pictures to show off. ;-)


Again, thanks Becky! thanks Ben! Thanks wifey for assisting me, and I look forward to your wedding in September! ;-)
