One week ago today…They said YES.
We have here Kai and Joanne’s e-session. This awesome couple got married exactly one week ago and i was honored to been given the responsabilty capture it.
I’ve known Kai since i was in high school from back in Puerto Rico. Growing up we had mutual friends and knew each other thru that group. Years passed, I moved to Orlando to go to school and Kai thru his own path also ended up in Orlando. Fast forward to 2011 and we found out we both lived here and planned a night catch up.
The first time i got to see him in Orlando, i met Joanne and loved her from the beginning. I thought they were an awesome couple and looked great together.
So fast forward to March 2012, and I get the call that they are getting married and looking for a photographer. I could not have been more happy and excited to shoot their wedding! The wedding was only two months away, so we had to plan fast. We needed to plan an e-session early enough to be able to have pictures printed for the wedding and we all had tight schedules, but found a day that worked perfectly for all of us.
When we got together to plan the engagement session and the questions came up of: “what do you like to do” “what activities do you enjoy together”; we came to realize that they are a homebody couple. I can totally relate to that because Hector and I also are a homebody couple. When we have free time, we usually stay home, we cook, he’ll play records or we watch a movie, etc, etc. Kai and Joanne were the same so we decided the shoot should be in their home, their natural habitat. Not to mention that doing the shoot at their place also meant that we were treated to their bartending skills. They have an awesome in-house “bar” called Sin Fin!
So.. a photo shoot with friends…at their home…where they have a bar……and Hector’s driving… yea sign me up to that!! 🙂 I’m so a professional i promise 😉
We did the entire session in their condo’s complex, 1. because its a beautiful complex, 2. because it was raining and we didnt want to wander off to far and 3. because we had planned to do the majority of the shoot in their place.
The day of the shoot was one of those dark Florida rainy days where it never fully rains it just stays drizziling water all day and the sun never really comes out. So in reality it was perfect weather to stay inside and hang out indoors but we did want to get some outside shots around the complex. Luckly we got about a 15 minute window when the sun kind of came out and it kind of stopped raining, so we carefully went out side with our gear and the weather gave us just enough time to get some beautiful shots. Then the water came back and we were forced back inside…back inside to Sin Fin that is. And the rest is what the pictures below show, because what happens in Sin Fin stays in Sin Fin (nothing happened, just drinks and alot of laughs…good times.)
