The United Kingdom.
I'm going to be short on words and long on images this post. I just have too much to say and I'm going to spoil it. I'd rather use my images this go around.
Laura & Oliver.....wow.
I came to your part of the world and came back to mine with so many stories. Thank you for the invite. Thank you for the epic backdrop. Thank you for trusting me.
A massive MASSIVE thank you to Brian of BK Photo for help as second shooter. This guy flew in from Glasgow Scotland to help out. Who knew 2 dudes from opposite sides of the world had so much in common. You're forever a friend BK. Thanks for being such a stud. A solid 1/2 dozen images below are from him.
Merry Christmas everyone. It's a wonderful life.

Dear Silicon Vally,
Why can't you be nice like folks from the South?
This shoot took place in Savannah Georgia. Melanie is from California. So is Arnel. So is Sam. WHY were we there? Because Savannah is awesome that's why! Truthfully though, it also has to do with the fact that Arnel proposed to Melanie while on a trip to Savannah a year before! :) This is one GEM of a city! There no place like it and shooting there was just plain cheating. I'll be forever in love.
Attention current and soon-to-be couples!
Why would a couple fly me and themselves out across the world JUST to have an engagement session? Because it's special folks. You only get one go at this, (well, it's supposed to be that way at least). Why not do it in style? One day Arnel and Mel will be married 50+ yrs and their grand kids will be looking through these pics. My only thought would be how cool my GP's are! It's your day guys, lets make it uber awesome. Thank you M&A for the trusting me with shooting your engagement session. It was an honor and I think we did awesome! :)
While I was there my darling couple suggested I try Mrs. Wilkes Boarding House as a place to have breakfast. Dear God Almighty. It did NOT disappoint.
"But...but but.. but Paula Dean?"
Barf. Paula Dean didn't stack up in the least bit. As the locals. MWBH WINS!!!
Okay I'm hungry. Bye!
love bir....yeah, you get it.
Forest Gump anyone? Yes, it was filmed mostly in Savannah. THE bench was seconds from this walkway.
Shot amongst garage cans in San Jose....no. Shot amonst garbage cans in Savannah? Yes! I don't know why it works. It just does.
So Savannah has many legends one of which is that it's haunted. Thought this was a great homage to this enchanted towns reputation.
Big thanks to the Avia Hotel for allowing us to take this shot behind their front desk.
