Another first for me, a beach shoot for this young couple (You may remember them from a 21st I shot recently). I have been asked lately to do more and more portraits & studio style shoots. I must admit I do enjoy doing them, but I still love my landscapes as well. They wanted it very casual and natural, as well as a little bit romantic. They are both extremely active and a walk on the beach was a natural extension for them, so this is where we made the shoot. I also wanted soft, natural light so we started shooting about 45 minutes before sunset. The light was perfect and they both followed direction gracefully and with a lot of humor. We were all very happy with the end result; casual, soft, romantic and very natural.
