What a wonderful day it was to spend a lovely afternoon with Alexis and Hersh in the Marin Headlands. We had amazing and dramatic views of the city, the ocean. Jagged cliffs gave way to rolling wetlands that stretched to soft green and yellow hills. In this relaxed atmosphere I really got to witness the blending of their different personalities. He: outgoing, loves being the center of attention, and a high tolerance for risk. Her: reserved, prefers intimate meetings, and excels under certainty and structure. In many ways I really like meeting couples where you can see the opposites-attract phenomenon work so well.
I was struck by how open and natural they were in front of the camera. I didn’t have to do much directing to get all these natural moments
The epic view, this is one of my favorite shots
Alexis’s sky blue eyes are incredible! And those fun hats match =)
Though it was a cloudy day, their colorful outfits popped, and Alexis and Hersh joked it might have been better as they squint in sunlight
After a quick outfit change we found this soft and beautiful background to work with
You can’t help but smile when looking at this photo!
Look who’s getting competitive ;)
