My last photo shoot was one of the best ever, like Top 3, without a doubt. Within the first two minutes of meeting Jake and Mike, I was being poured a glass of red wine. I mean, best clients ever? For sure.
Here is Jake:
Here is Mike:
Jake contacted me a few weeks ago about getting headshots done. He asked me what he should wear, suggested a suit, then quickly said, "Well, that wouldn't be me." Jake and Mike just moved to San Diego from San Francisco, and right now Jake is looking for a different kind of job, something that suits him better.
At the beginning of the session, I was trying to photograph him in the traditional way you would shoot someone's headshots. I quickly learned, though, that he just wanted to be silly, because that is who he his and that's the kind of job he wants. See next two photos:
The photos above were Jake's idea. They're my favorites.
Jake and Mike are engaged. They said they needed some practice taking photos together before the wedding, and I kinda see why... They are SO ridiculous, which was REALLY entertaining.
We ended the shoot on the beach, just as the sun set. They finally stopped being ninjas and let me take a couple of engagement-worthy photos. You guys will do just fine on your wedding day. That photographer won't have a problem. Promise. ;-)
You guys are awesome. Congratulations on your engagement, and may San Diego be a wonderful home for you both. Oh, and good luck on the job hunt!
