HEY, I'M EVÓRA!
Huntington Beach + Fingerprints Music
I think the most rewarding aspect of being a photographer/filmmaker, are connections. Genuine connections with people. Our jobs as photographers and filmmakers are to disarm the person in the photo to the point where, just for a split second, you can see the real person. I know it’s awkward taking photos (“ah, what do i do with my hands!” haha) Everyone thinks it’s awkward, until you learn to let go. It’s hard to let that person hiding behind a camera truly see you and know you. But, as photographers, when somebody actually lets us see them and know them, and builds and honest connection with us, the experience is so memorable and rewarding.
Amy and Kevin should get 1 million props for how laid-back, honest, and just plain awesome they were at their engagement. (And they were nervous about it before hand to!) But they’ve definitely become one of those couples, that for us, are our genuine friends.
Amy is a bad-ass hairstylist @amylarahair and Kevin is a lawyer/comedian @iamstrongkevin. They both live in Las Vegas Nevada and flew to Southern California just for our engagement shoot. We had them wake up at the crack of dawn and start our engagement shoot in Huntington Beach California at the bonfire pits. Side-note, shoots never go as planned, and that’s the beauty of it. It’s always an interaction between the setting the mood and The couple and you have to be able to adapt. Check out our pre-shoot Pinterest board for what we thought the mood would be for the morning shoot here
After that we made our way to Long Beach where we had breakfast at Berlin Bistro (@berlinbistrolb). Right next-door was fingerprints music record store where we had our planned engagement shoot. These guys are awesome! Check them out @fingerprintsmusic. I really feel like this is where the personality truly came out of Amy andKevin. They were just at home with themselves right next to all of there favorite albums an artists.
