… and speaking of e-shoots (after yesterday’s bit of inspiration).
Generally, I don’t cover engagement shoots, but I fully admit I’m an easy pushover if I love it. When I saw this engagement shoot in my Two Bright Lights inbox from Carlie Statsky Photography – well, let’s just say that it was one of those times. In addition to being really well-styled and shot, the couple, Marilyn and Jason, are so stinkin’ adorable (freckles make me want to cry – I wish I had them). I had a hard time editing down film, so today’s feature is divided into two parts. Before we get started, it’s time to hear from Carlie:
“I knew I’d love spending time with these two from the moment I met Marilyn and Jason and detected Marilyn’s Australian accent, but when they described their style as modern, eclectic and quirky, I was in heaven…and I remained there for the entire engagement session when I got to witness the beautiful connection between these two. What really made this photo shoot so special was all of the thought and effort that they both poured into it, from the ‘save the date’ sign they crafted, to mom’s homemade mango french macaroon cookies, to their stylin’ outfits, to their willingness to fit three locations into one session, to the fact that they even bought me a ferris wheel ride! We started at The Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk, headed straight for the ferris wheel and requested a yellow chair (since yellow is one of the main colors of their wedding) and got on for some views out to the Pacific, then we had a champagne picnic, wandered through fields and ended up at the beach at sunset. Marilyn and Jason will be getting married at Clos La Chance later this summer.”
