I first heard from Christmas via email a few months back, enquiring about capturing her same-sex wedding to Nancy. We scheduled in a meeting over Skype so they could tell me all about their wedding plans (at one of my favorite Southern California venues – Calamigos Ranch), as well as discuss having an e-session. They wanted something playful and colorful to reflect their personalities and relationship, and decided on a nighttime Los Angeles County Fair engagement session.

Because it was going to be a predominantly nighttime e-session, my wife Charlene came along to help out as an assistant with the off-camera flashes. It meant we could really get creatively with the use of light and hopefully come away with some special shots.

There were definitely a lot of colorful backdrops to work with throughout this Los Angeles County Fair engagement session, from plush toys at the arcade games to the neon lights which illuminated the rides. We staged shots of them trying their luck on numerous different games, as well as some romantic embraces of them looking lovingly into each other’s eyes, regardless of the lights and noise going on around them.

We went into a maze attraction which had some really dramatic lighting to work with, then I captured a shot of Nancy and Christmas being showered with bubbles. I also grabbed shots of them cuddling up in front of the beautifully illuminated carousel, as well as a kiss backed by the ferris wheel.

Nancy and Christmas really brought so much energy to this Los Angeles County Fair engagement session and through their flirtation and goofy antics, you could see that they have a lot of fun together. I’m really looking forward to reconnecting with them next January for their Calamigos Ranch wedding and getting to know their family and friends then.
