I loved everything about this shoot. The clothing, the location, the company. Everything just seemed to mold together so well. when I first met up with this couple, we talked about Mr. Danny possibly wearing his mariachi suit since he played in a mariachi on the weekends. After a few words of encouragement, we got him in it and it was amazing. It blended super well with the look of the mission and I wouldn't have had it any other way!!!

Mt Hoot in Oregon http://www.martinvphotography.com/blog/2017/9/mt-hoot-in-oregon

 

6 Image panoramic image I stitched together in Photoshop. I took this while out on vacation November 2016. I love the way the water reflects like glass and you get a view of Mt. Hood in the distance.

Ashley & William's Post Wedding Photo Shoot in Downtown Los Angeles, CA http://www.martinvphotography.com/blog/2015/11/ashley-williams-post-wedding-photo-shoot-in-downtown-los-angeles-ca

Unique couples with unique stories. Meeting new people and seeing what they are about and listening to their stories really makes this profession a great experience. No two stories are alike and that's one of the amazing things about meeting with all these new couples. They always have a unique story about how they met and how the have persevered and stayed together against all odds.

Rachel & Tobia's Wedding at the Victoria Gardens Cultural Center in Rancho Cucamonga, CA http://www.martinvphotography.com/blog/2015/11/rachel-tobias-wedding-at-the-victoria-gardens-cultural-center-in-rancho-cucamonga-ca

Personally I think big bridal parties are fun. You have all of your best friends and family members together ready to have a good time. They are wild, they are rowdy, and they are loud. The problem comes when you need to gather everyone up for the formal pictures. "where's tony?" "oh he went to get a beer" and once you start to loose people, it's hard to get them back together again. So the photo tip of the day is, keep everyone together!

Stephen & Shana's Engagement Session in Downtown Redlands, CA http://www.martinvphotography.com/blog/2015/11/stephen-shanas-engagement-session-in-downtown-redlands-ca

So this blog entry is pretty much to state the obvious....I kinda suck at blogging haha. When i was in high school and college, I was always told by my teachers that I was a strong writer, though I hated writing. Maybe because I was always given an assignment and topic to write about and never had the freedom to pick my own topic and write about what I truly wanted to write about. That makes a lot of sense to me now as to why it was difficult to write. This scenario is a little different though. I love taking pictures and showing them off but as always, finding content to write about is quite difficult. Does anyone have any suggestions on what I can do to improve my blog writing skills? Any book recommendations? Blogging is a quality I feel could potentially help me in my business so i would love to improve on that. Any help will be welcome. Thank you in advanced.

Garrido Family Shoot in San Diego, CA http://www.martinvphotography.com/blog/2015/8/garrido-family-shoot

I think I have mentioned this before, but I'm a big fan of family pictures. You never realize how much time flies and we're all not getting any younger. Family pictures capture more than just a smile, or interaction. They capture a moment in time. It's always amazing to me to look back at my old family pictures and see how everyone has changed and grown. It seems that in a blink of an eye 10 years have passed and time doesn't seem to be wanting to slow down. I would say there's no such thing as too many family pictures because you'll never look back and wish you didn't spend all that time together. You always wish for more time with your loved ones.

Michelle & Steven's Engagement Shoot in Redlands, CA http://www.martinvphotography.com/blog/2015/7/michelle-stevens-engagement-shoot-in-redlands-ca

Photography brings people together. One of the things I really enjoy about it. People can hire you to shoot their pictures, you get to know them and you build a relationship. They can become friends or maybe even family. Shooting photographs you have the privilege of working with people from all over, with different kinds of history and backgrounds. You hear different stories and you learn about different traditions and cultures which is definitely a mind opening/growing experience.

Daysi & Wilson's Engagement shoot in Hollywood, CA http://www.martinvphotography.com/blog/2015/7/daysi-wilsons-engagement-shoot-in-hollywood-ca

Sometimes I feel its hard to pick locations for a couple to shoot their engagement pictures. Some couples come to you with ideas and some come to you with expectations of you giving them locations for their pictures. I stay away from the "cookie cutter" engagement sessions. I would find it boring to have to shoot the same 2-3 places for every engagement session. Though sometimes it may be challenging to photograph a new place without previously having shot there, there is also a reward. The reward is getting to shoot something new and unique and being able to use your creativity to overcome the obstacle of shooting in an unfamiliar area.

Thalia & Adrian's Wedding in Claremont, CA http://www.martinvphotography.com/blog/2015/4/thalia-adrians-wedding-in-claremont-ca

Different couples from different backgrounds. Every couple you meet comes from somewhere unique. Their stories are unique. This is what makes me love what I do even more. Hearing everyone's love story is inspiring. It Let's you know that even today, when the odds seem impossible to find the one person you were meant to be with, you can find your person.

Crystal & Peter's Wedding at the Riverside Convention Center in Riverside, CA http://www.martinvphotography.com/blog/2015/3/crystal-peters-wedding-at-the-riverside-convention-center-in-riverside-ca

An interesting thing about weddings and a factor that makes everyone's wedding unique is the different personalities you deal with at each wedding. You get some people that are outgoing, shy, quiet, loud...a mixture of everything. I feel being able to adapt and work with all these personalities will make you get the best photographs possible. Sometimes it's not about the pose, but the emotion you are able to get out of your couples that will get you those great images.
