E-Session | Natalie & Jared

Dave and I went to Malibu Creek State Park a few weeks ago to take Natalie & Jared's engagement pictures. The sun was actually a bit brighter than I had hoped for (for picture-taking purposes), but it made for a really comfortable pseudo hike to look for some quality photo spots. I was relieved when Natalie showed up in pants and what seemed like comfortable shoes to walk in because some of the terrain in the park aren't really intended for heels and dresses.

Even though these two beautiful are self-proclaimed uncomfortable-in-front-of-the-camera people, they responded well to our motto of "Just hang out, have fun, and be you. We're kind of just like flies on the walls." (Since I can't pose to save my life, I totally feel for any of our clients who are in the same boat. Giving the motto seems to help people lower their guards. It's helped me in the past. I'm not that comfortable in front of the camera, so being me is really the best I have to offer. What Dave and I really are looking for is for the couple or whoever that's in front of the camera is "being," so that we can get real moments--with some direction here and there. )

Anywho, we're super excited for their wedding. Natalie actually just told me they'll be getting married on August 11th of this year--not too far from where we took their engagement shots. Yay!!

I took the liberty of doing just a B&W post. I've not done this before, but there was something about the black and white shots from this session that I was really drawn too.  I'll post some of the color ones on Life With [Ed]'s Facebook page ASAP. Stay tuned for those.

The to-be Mr. & Mrs. Freitag:


We love you two. Thanks for letting us take your pictures and hang out with you--can't wait for August!
