emilia & bill and our 60’s/french/new wave-inspired engagement session

Not only are they absolutely stunning to photograph, but Bill and Emilia have a couple of stellar personalities as well. Plus, they are a match made in heaven: the writer (Bill) and the dancer (Emilia) who met in college and both have an incredible sense of humor and excellent taste in music, clothing, film etc. Check out Emilia’s blogs: Veiled Vows & Auburn & Ivory.

… If it sounds as though I am sort of in love with them, it’s probably because I kind of am. I could shoot these guys forever and the more I get to know them, the more I get pleasantly surprised…  Btw, thanks for springing the life-size cardboard cutout of Edward Cullen on me the other night Emilia, I am silently awaiting my opportunity to surprise you as well… one day soon when you least expect it ; )

These were shot in San Diego at the Park Manor Suites, outside of Cafe de L’Opera, and Caffe Carpe Diem.

Emilia and I clicked immediately on what type of photo session we wanted to achieve. We had several connected concepts. Here is the result…

    Diana - Just amazing. I know you’ve had a lot of publicity on this shoot already, but I only recently got the word via rock ‘n roll bride, and had to spread the love on my new blog. 🙂

    Can you ask Emilia where she got those teal shoes, btw? I’ve got a serious crush on them…
