Sunset Beach Couples Session With The Krauses

Everything about this session with the Krause duo was MAGICAL.  Ryan and Kellee, first off, are some of our dearest friends.  I was thrilled when they let me know that they wanted some memories captured by the Hotel Del Coronado near San Diego just before we moved across the country to Virginia.  I made sure to make this happen before we had to pack up our bags and move far away!

As the sky changed throughout the evening, you can see the way it impacted the feel of the images.  Earlier in the day, we were all afraid that the storm would stick around and ruin the session!  However, the sun came out at JUST the right time, giving us the perfect amount of time to capture images at several vignettes on the beach!

When I take people out for a photo session, I generally allow enough time for both posed shots and candid shots.  I've found that most people enjoy having the combination of images available.  We usually begin the session with a more posed look, and I'll eventually back off, letting people play around for a while, just being themselves.  I LOVED what happened when Ryan and Kellee took a break to sit on the wall and a forceful wave crashed up on their legs!  Don't you just love the way they play off of each other in these images?!

It's important to me that I make sure that everyone has the opportunity to shine individually, as well.  Whenever time allows for headshots, I go for it!  Here are a few of Kellee, then Ryan.
