As always, I shoot rain or shine. For this shoot we had the full use of the Oakland Zoo. Even though it rained, we were able to keep dry for the most part getting the shots we needed. I love the railroad tracks at the Oakland Zoo, and as with my last shoot the train came just as we were taking the photos. I added a little motion blur to the train, but there was some natural blur as the train was moving. Special thanks to Toni from the Oakland Zoo for being such a wonderful guide and flash holder.

Miguel made this great video from the engagement shots I sent him. It was a pleasant surprise to see my work put together in a slideshow. We had a great time during the shoot, and despite the rain (or because of it), the photos came out very beautiful and unique. Miguel used the “Umbrella” song covered by John Peter West. I use John’s music on my wedding photography site, More info on John West: http://www.johnpeterwest.com/

Miguel and Audrey were a great couple to work with. With Miguel, being a serious model it was easy to get the couple relaxed for the camera. The photos reflect my general shooting style of capturing the feelings that are already there. Even though it was raining that day, we decided to go through with the shoot anyway. We were all glad we did, since the images would not be as unique without the rain. I include engagement sessions in all my weddings in order to get acquainted with the couple. Come wedding day we are all relaxed and have a great connection, which is vital for capturing breath taking images.
