Time to take a trip to the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk!! Talk about fun, relaxed and full of laughs! We had an awesome time, can’t you tell?!! Luckily we went during midweek, which meant less crowds and awesome pics…it’s as if we had the whole place to ourselves!
For Tim and Arielle’s shoot, because we were going to the boardwalk, I was ready for all the colors, bright sun, and fun backdrops, but because of this, I made sure that they had just the right attire as well. Keep in mind that when you choose locations like this, clothing can make or break the session!! With all the color and busy patterns in the background, you’ll want to keep the outfits subdued, less bright and more neutral, otherwise, you’ll blend right in with the background and get lost in the picture. And vice verse when going to a location that is more neutral, pops of colors on your clothes works best!! I always advise my clients to plan their outfits, take pictures, and bring backups on the day of!!! It’s so important! Tim and Arielle did an awesome job choosing their location and the attire that went along with each spot!
When we moved on the the Sea Cliff, a location that Tim recommended, my jaw dropped. Drama and romance set the stage when I saw these two through my lens and the backdrop! It was amazing! I will definitely be heading back here to these spots for more shoots!!!
