    Wedding Photography from the Prado at Balboa Park

    Getting to revisit Balboa park has reinforced my view that not only is the park itself one of the greatest decisions ever made by an American city in regards of how best to use its public space (giant free park in the middle of downtown that is chock full of museums, gardens, restaurants, and assorted other cool stuff; whats not to like?); but it is also probably one of the nicest places in Southern California to get married.
    After taking the getting ready images, everyone met at the park in the early afternoon, where we took a “first look picture”. I have always been happy with the first look pictures I have taken in the past (knock on wood!), but they nonetheless make me a bit nervous. On the one hand, I want to let the first look develop more or less naturally (which is sort of the entire point of the process; it obviously wouldn’t be the same if I posed the couple -”OK! NOW LOOK HAPPY!”), but on the other hand if the bride or groom turn the wrong way, or worse, if you are in a crowded area and a bunch of people walk by, it can really hurt the pictures. Also, the first look happens fast, and there are no redos. We decided to take the first look images at the beautiful Spreckles Organ Pavilion in Balboa Park (where I guess they also hold weddings from time to time), which was a little risky, because of the number of people that could walk by, but on balance, the spot was just too amazing *not* to take them there. In the end everything went swimmingly, as evidenced by the fact that I now consider them to be some of the finest first look photos I have ever taken. Amazing day, amazing couple, amazing first look, amazing baby wearing baby-blue headphones. What else needs to be said? Thank you Kay and Randy!
