Meet Brian & Stacy, they love Berkeley and so that’s exactly where we headed to shoot their casual portrait session.  The light was amazing and I we had a great time cruising through UC Berkeley Campus shooting.  But to start we headed to the marina and since the light was a bit harsh I used my secret lighting tool the Sun Swatter to diffuse the light on them.  Thus we got some killer shots of them on the San Francisco Bay, where we shot this casual session a few weeks ago.  The whole session was fun and my favorite part about Brian & Stacy was that they were spontaneous and despite this being the 1st time ever photographed, they just were themselves and had fun.  My favorite shots of they day have to be the ones in the redwood trees with the light coming through from the back.  Oh, that sweet sweet light lasted about 5 minutes, and then it was gone.  They are getting married this Friday and I am looking forward to their wedding!  Enjoy.
