Choosing locations is definitely a personal choice. It is our belief that we can get awesome photos anywhere. As long as we all have the right mindset, we will have a fun engagement session and make beautiful images. The good thing about living in Southern California is the variety of scenes from which we get to choose. In some cases, we can choose multiple areas in one day as long as they are nearby each other. For example we can go to an outdoor nature area and then go to the nearby beach. We love to give our clients variety of imagery. Some of our most memorable sessions have been location sessions where we get to photograph our clients in locations which are special to them. This can be in your own home, your work, where you met, where you spend lots of time together, etc. We have also done a handful of destination engagement sessions which is a treat for everyone. We have shot in San Francisco, New York City, Mammoth Lakes, Joshua Tree, etc. So, in short, we can shoot pretty much anywhere! We typically want to schedule during the best light which is close to sunset where the light is soft and beautiful. Some questions to ask yourself to decide:
- Where are you most happy?
- Where do you guys love going to?
- Do you share a certain hobby or past-time?
- Do you love architecture?
- Do you love nature and the outdoors?
