For places to shoot e-sessions, Southern California has a lot to offer. It is for this very reason, that it took us a while to shoot one within Sta Clarita, where we currently live.
Right within our “backyard” our first stop was the Saugus Cafe, which opened around 1890’s. Instead of meeting up in a coffee house somewhere, I thought why not do it there and sneak in a few photos. The diner offered a stark contrast to the usual sub-urban development sprawl within the Santa Clarita Valley (SCV). Staff were very friendly, so accommodating, we stayed there for quite some time. They even played mood music courtesy of their jukebox just for us.
Next is Mentryville, California’s first oil boom town. Now, its a basically a ghost town and a terrific place to shoot. Lot’s of possibilities, I can see myself going back again for few more occasions.
I had the pleasure to enjoy these places with Dan and Jisun. They were simply awesome! They were very willing to experiment with the poses. I can’t wait to shoot their wedding.
