Waterworld : Daniella and James

When I started experimenting with underwater photography I knew instantly that I wanted to incorporate a familiar aspect into this new work. I am fortunate to get to capture the dynamics of so many couples in love each year and was excited to combine that with this project.  I wanted to experiment with how love would show up in a new and unexpected environment.  What was born from this combination of interests was an intimate and special set of moments.  It seems like people getting photographed underwater tend to forget they are being photographed. What happens after that is a series of real and passionate emotions. They close their eyes, reach for each other, and get lost in the middle of the water as if no one else is around.xoxo,

Waterworld : Daniella

savethedate9As an artist I believe in continuing to study your craft, improving your skills and searching outside of your comfort zone for inspiration.  I wanted to seek inspiration outside of the norm and challenge myself with a new skill this year, so over the summer I started experimenting with underwater photography.  I have always loved being in the water, the feeling of being weightless, carefree, relaxed and floating in a dreamlike state.  I wanted to use this underwater exploration as a way to not only practice something completely different than what I am use to, but to visually create the freedom I feel when I am in the water.  I'd say my summer project was a success and this is the first set of a mini series of images inspired by the blissfulness of being in the water.xoxo,

Suzanne

4 things...hello fall

The first week of fall is here and although it still feels like summer is lingering, mostly because of the weather, I am ready for the beauty of Fall.  I love how new season's seem to bring new adventures. Summer to me always feels full of bright, happy and fun times where Fall always feels full of intimate, special and personal joy. Mike and I have begun feeling that special joy of Fall with the move to our new place. It is the perfect time of year to create a new personal space.  Now that the big move is coming to an end I was fortunate to get some time to enjoy the things that come around this time of year.Moved by: SD film festival.  I went to the world premiere of a film about Chelsea King from Poway, Ca.  It was a touching documentary told from her brothers point of view that brought a mixture of emotions out of me.  I would highly recommend it.   Chelsea's Light: A Brother's Journey.

Noticing: signs of fall in San Diego.  Ghee the weather doesn't seem to change but...TV shows return.  Hello Scandal!

Watching:  Scandal along with the rest of my fall line up.  Watching new shows, drinking warm drinks, and snuggling up in blankets on the couch with Mike sums up some of my favorite things to do this time of year.

Dreaming of: my brothers wedding next weekend.  I am ready to sit back, relax and enjoy the wedding as a bridesmaid instead of a photographer.  I am looking forward to every bit of it.

Have a great rest of your weekend everyone.

xoxo,

Suzanne

Meg, Ty and Harper : A sweet family portrait

"Family: Where life begins and love never ends."  -UnknownIt is always special when I have the opportunity to photograph past bride and grooms children.  Meg and Ty have become dear friends since their wedding years ago at Estancia and watching their family grow is wonderful.  I especially love following Ty on Instagram where he tags pictures of Harper with #harperhasmyheart , the Easley family certainly has mine.

Seeing Each Other for the First Time

While I was editing Leah Ahn and Michael's wedding I came across a few images of the reveal and I just had to share.  It's hard not to fall in love with their story.  The reveal was so beautiful that even now I can feel my heart in my throat.  Leah Ahn did not want Michael to cry because she knew she would start crying.  So instead, after he collected himself, he started making funny faces and she of coursed laughed.  I felt honored to be a witness and kept photographing through my laughter and tears.  Even though I'm sitting at my computer now, I feel like I'm standing a few feet away from this moment.I often get asked if reveals are as emotional as seeing each other for the first time when you walk down the aisle.  I think that it's lovely to have this private emotional moment by yourselves and still have the walk down the aisle, but ultimately the choice is yours. hotel palomar wedding photography, shewanders photography, hotel palomar san diego, reveal, black and white
