I've been doing a lot of "mini" engagement sessions lately with my clients – essentially 15-20 minute crash courses for directed posing with my brides and grooms. I *should* hand out a certificate-of-completion at the end of these sessions as they're super productive and we all learn a lot in a short amount of time. This leads to much more efficient/productive time with couples on the actual wedding day.

I have to say that working with Gabriella and Evan this evening was a breeze; they're both easygoing and have a natural, easy-flowing connection that I wholly exploited for our quick session at Lighthouse Field / Its (Dog) Beach in Santa Cruz. We started about 40 minutes before sunset, so the natural light was, shall I say, Golden Delicious. Enjoy.
