Fall is in full effect, and our mini sessions are a perfect way to get into the season. That’s what the Caudillo Family did. It was actually a little over 5 years ago when I shot their wedding, and their family has grown a little bit more since then. It’s always great to see previous clients come back and catch up and see how they have grown.
I’m excited that I was able to finish up these edits of Steven and Nicoles engagement from last week. We explored the Lorimar Winery grounds and it is a beautiful venue. The grape vines are so lush and green. We didn’t have a hard time at all trying to find locations to shoot at. They were so great to work with, and they really did a great job with their engagement session.
Just finished up with Nicole and Adam’s engagement session and I am just blown away with how they came out. The lighting that day was perfect and the sunset couldn’t have been any better. They were also really great trekking around the winery to get the perfect shot for them too. A big thank you to Wiens winery letting us adventure around their grounds to get their photos as well. Such a gorgeous venue and can’t wait to go back there again.
Every once and awhile I get to experiment on a shoot with different techniques. For this photo I used a technique called the “Brenizer Method” made famous by a wedding photographer Ryan Brenizer. What it consists of is shooting multiple photos with a telephoto lens with a fast aperture (in this case I was using an 85mm @ f/1.2) and stitching them together to make a panoramic. It achieves these really wide photos with a very shallow depth of field.
For this location, the lighting and the framing was a perfect match to use this technique and I was very pleased on how it came out. I took 23 photos stitched together, and it comes out that I would need a 35mm f/0.5 lens to achieve this same effect.
Photos from their session will be posted soon!

We had a great time photographing this awesome family. Their little girl was so adorable and so easy to work with. She was a little shy at first, but when they got her to play and have some fun she forgot the camera was there. We got some great photos that I’m sure they will really love. We even got her making a wish, let’s hope it comes true for her.
