Engagement Photography – Claremont, CA
Claremont College is a gorgeous place for an engagement session. There are so many beautiful places for pictures, that you will be hard pressed to decide which locations you like the best. We spent a couple of hours just wandering around, shooting pictures and having a great time getting to know Stacy and Dan.
There are a few things about this session that you may want to note when you are thinking of doing your session. Firstly try to prepare for the weather as best you can. If you know it is going to be cold do yourself a favor and bring some blankets for your in between shooting times. Believe it or not, this session was done in October and it was FREEZING! So we wrapped our couple up in blankets while we wandered from place to place within the campus looking only quazi homeless during our trek! Our bride was a total trooper and despite the cold, she looked amazing and didn’t stop smiling the whole time.
The second thing you may want to think about is if you are a person who wears glasses. I like to photograph people to represent how they look all the time, so if you wear glasses, I would recommend that you bring them. Of course, here is the side note. Our very handsome groom wears transition lenses and this is the only pair he brought to our session, so as the sun came in and out of the clouds…so did our groom transition effortlessly (ahem!) between regular glasses and sunglasses. So, my recommend is that if you have a spare pair of non transition lenses, those would be the best ones to bring.
Lastly, If your dogs are considered family, then by all means bring them. I love photographing people with their pets, they add so much to the day. If you do decide to bring your dogs, I whole heartedly recommend bringing an additional family member to wrangle the pups for you, so you get the most out of your session.
All in all, I loved this session, the colors were gorgeous and the couple was amazing!
We also were given the opportunity to photograph their wedding, which can be seen here
