What a wonderfully hot day it was today, and what fun it was to assist at the engagement of Kim and David at Irvine Regional Park. The sun was blistering, but my mission was resolute: assist Timothy Bearden in his quest to take some photographs. And so I did. I stood in the sun, juggling cameras, bags, flashes reflectors, and even two pairs of sunglasses in order to make things go as smoothly as possible. And smoothly they went, no doubt because the couple was just so lovely. They took the heat like champs and were willing to get a little dirty and always with smiles on their faces. I even got the chance to take a picture or two or three.
I was a bit surprised when asked if I had any ideas and when I gave my idea, Timothy said, "Well go ahead." My heart skipped a few beats and I had my go at it. So here was my idea and what came of it. I wish I could take all the credit, but Kim and David were great and just so easy to take photos of.
Here are a couple more that I managed to capture throughout the session.
And Mr. Bearden himself at work.
All in all, a pretty good day.
