we always get mixed reactions when we tell people that our daughter is our associate photographer. some people think she’s too young, some people think she’s inexperienced. some people think her hair smells like cinnamon :)
we like to let april’s photos speak for her.
ALL the images in this slideshow were shot by april on her very first solo destination wedding. that’s right, she shot the whole wedding by herself in the beautiful city of san francisco. april also designed all the layouts in this slideshow.
most of these images tell the story of gerlie and joe’s san francisco wedding as april saw it. of course, she also got some shots that were requested by the beautiful couple. for those of you who have seen our previous posts you’ll now be able to recognize all the shots that april took. ok, that was a lie. we sometimes shoot a lot alike, but you will be able to tell some of her shots. if in doubt, the best ones are always mine :)
all kidding aside, april is a great visual storyteller. she almost always comes back from a session with shots that blow us away and inspire us.
unfortunately, april is currently off at the California Institute of the Arts refining her “arty side” so we don’t get to work with her as much as we used to :( it’s only a matter of time before disney or pixar or some other big studio sees her talent and snaps her up. until then, we’ll keep begging her to come home on the weekends to work with us :)
on a side note for all you photographers out there, here is the capper. kim and i had all of our best gear with us because we were shooting kamran and leila’s persian wedding at the Fairbanks Ranch Clubhouse in Rancho Santa Fe on the same day. april shot this entire wedding with our old canon 10d and rain’s digital rebel with the following lenses, tamron 17-35mm 2.8-4.0, tamron 28-300mm 3.5-6.3, canon 50mm 1.8, and a canon 24-70mm 2.8. i think april did an amazing job composing and capturing these frames considering the gear she had, the unfamiliar location, and the fact that she was by herself! i guess it really is more about the artist than the equipment :)
great job april! we will never get sick of saying, WE ARE SO PROUD OF YOU!
now come home :)
