Rain, shmain. We still shoot!

A few weekends ago, we had planned to get together with Lillian and Rick for their engagement session in downtown Ocean Beach, followed by Sunset Cliffs. The sky parted and spoiled our plans. We rescheduled. We're on the phone with Lillian every few days with updates on weather watch 2008. Just when we thought we were in the clear, the forecast changes again, but we refused to give in to the big grey clouds in the sky. This time the weather would NOT reign victorious!

Since Lillian and Rick needed some fab images for their save-the-dates, we decided to fight the uncooperative weather and forge ahead. The solution: a brief mini session at Balboa Park where we (and our equipment!) can seek shelter and shoot rain or shine. These two are such naturals, it didn't take long to get them warmed up. Their sunny dispositions took care of the rest. They're really great with each other!

The light was actually pretty amazing that day---just moody enough. You'll see that this weather inspired daydreams of hot cocoa and marshmallows… hence lots of sepia and black and white images!

After our brief session, we needed to take the chill off, so we all headed over to Wine Steals to hang out, enjoy some nice red wine, and nosh on some artisan cheese from Taste. Not a bad way to end a session, right?

Thanks, Lillian and Rick for being such troopers! You two were awesome and we're looking forward to your next session. Stay tuned for their full engagement shoot soon when we hit the beach!
