Nicole & Bruce - Engagement

After taking some time away from photography in 2017, it was nice to get back into it again with Nicole and Bruce.  As I've said many times before when posting my shots, I always seem to luck out with getting great people to work with, and Nicole and Bruce were no exception.

 
Ahhh!!! I love them! Great job Aaron, I’m so happy we have you to capture our wedding day on camera!
— Nicole
 

With a bit of a doubtful start to the day due to weather, we ended up having a great walk along the beach, and ended up with some sun after all by the end.  It's always fun to work with people who are just there to have a good time, and who genuinely are just happy being with eachother... it makes my job so much easier.

So, it was literally a nice way to get my feet wet again after a little break (thank you lake).  Here are a few shots from the day...


The Kretz Family

Colin has been a friend of mine since grade school.  We grew up together, played in a band together, and generally had good fun as kids do.  While we haven't seen much of each other in adulthood, it was nice to catch up with him and his growing family during this little session for their new daughter.


 
It was a pleasure to work with Aaron on our new baby photos. His beautiful work speaks for itself, and we couldn’t be happier with the results.

Being a parent of 2 now myself, I always find things to be a challenge.  Its hard to strike a good balance between time with the kids, and getting my work done.  Sometime's I feel 99% of my time is spent with them... I cant imagine having 3!


Steacy & Joe

This was a great way to wrap up the year.  After a short Skype conversation, I I knew Steacy and Joe were going to be great to work with.  They're both very easy going, never seeming to take anything too seriously.   Joe and I do similar work (when I'm not photoing I do visual effects and animation), and when we had the usual meeting to take care of the contract earlier this year, Joe and I probably spent just as much time talking computers, software, and rendering, as we did talking about the wedding day.

They definitely planned some fun and unique things for this Halloween themed wedding.  There were masks, piñata, and a giant dancing LED robot man... JBOT!   Alot was jammed into the day, and it seemed to go by super fast, as usual.

So, while it was a bit cool outside, we lucked out with sun in the afternoon, and some nice overcast light in the evening for our quick walk around downtown.  All in all it was a great day, and it was lots of fun spending the day with these two.  Here are a few of my favorite shots...

 


Halloween '16

Its now getting to be a tradition that at this time of year we take my son to the little pumpkin farm and get a picture of him in the same spot, inside the wooden train.  Though, this year it wasn't just him, it was also his sister and his cousin.   The weather wasn't the best, cold and rainy all day, but the kids still enjoyed visiting the farm and seeing the animals for a short while.  I know I don't post as much personal family stuff as I used to.  Its hard to find time to shoot and edit my own shots when most of my time is spent doing photography for other people, but I thought it was important to keep this tradition going.
