Heidi and Chris

I got an email from Heidi about a week before her shoot saying that she was a little nervous about making Chris feel comfortable in front of the camera.  At our initial consultation he had said he didn’t like his smile when he smiled for the camera, but I remember having a lot of fun talking to them both.  I didn’t think he would have a problem, but I told her I would memorize some jokes to get him laughing.  Well, I went online to look for some jokes and they were all so dirty!  I would have been too embarrassed to say them!  However, Chris had no problem getting comfortable in front of the camera.  In fact, after a few minutes he was directing the shoot!  Telling me where to go and he even created a new pose that I’m going to call “The Chris”.  And he should be comfortable in front of the camera.  He’s a big time model in South America.  I even have proof.  Heidi emailed me over a few pictures from Chris’ modeling days, but I will be nice and not post them on the internet for everyone to see :)

Heidi and Chris met years ago and dated for a couple of months.  They eventually lost touch and met again at the Cannery restaurant in Newport Beach, which is where we did their shoot.  The second time was the charm and they are now getting married in February up in Beverly Hills.  I just know that their wedding is going to be a blast!  I can’t wait!

Heidi and Chris thanks for being so much fun and for teaching me a thing or two :)  Below are my favorites and here is the slideshow!

    Seriously, sometimes the most ridiculous ideas turn out to be the best! I’ve learned a thing or two from my clients! And I had no idea you worked with Riviera! That’s awesome. I feel like I’m on the right track now =).

    You blew us away with these shots . . . we love them! The pictures (and smiles from you-know-who) that you captured are such a treat for us as we celebrate our love and prepare for our wedding. We cannot wait to see what you get at the wedding!!

    Thank you, thank you, thank you!
