It rained today in northern California. I had a high school senior scheduled for this day of photographs, for the studio fashion shots, and outside on the river. A few days ago, we received the report that it would rain, so Holly called with that question in mind. I said, “Awesome! Let’s shoot in the rain!” It’s going rain quite a bit this season I suppose, bring it on. Many photographers complain they can’t shoot in the rain. I’ve had a few clients cancel because of rain, but I’m believing any good photographer can shoot almost anywhere. So, I wanted to show off a few preview senior shots of some in my studio and the others outside in the rain on the Mokelumne River on Hwy 49. We totally had fun and Holly killed the session (meaning she did an awesome job). These images are just a few quick selects from the session, straight from the camera, with minor touch-up. Wait until you see the rest…

Here are some of the magazine style images of the Bridal Fashion Session we had up in the mountains last month.  Great weather, great day.  We left early in the morning and shot for a little over half the day trying out different locations with different lighting, ring-flashes, battery kits, strobes, as well as the natural light.  If you purchase a wedding collection or package through Charleton Churchill Photography, a Bridal Fashion Session is an option, and is equivalent to  an engagement session cost.  I wanted to illustrate what a bride can anticipate when she purchases this option.  Lynn Holmes did an excellent job in this shoot as the model, as well as Travis (who loves O’s cereal).  Actually we stopped at Kirkwood where there was still a load of snow and ice rivers. So, Lynn started at about 5:30a.m. in the snowy weather in the 20’s for a bikini shot in the misty sunrise.  Ciara Hernandez was along the journey assisting me with make-up for Lynn, holding the reflector, adjusting lights, being blown away by the wind, video taping, and with whatever needed assistance!  We have so many more good quality images to choose from, but when you blog, you can only squeeze in so many without clogging up a web page. If you come to my studio by the end of the summer, and I should have a 10×15 complete Album portfolio for you all to view of this session.
