A few weeks ago we took my brother and his beauty-of-a-wife out to a new secret location for some "just for fun" fashionable shots of the two of them. We told both of them to get as crazy-stylish as they wanted and we would take care of the rest! We had been pushing this photo sitting with Kenny and Jill for quite some time, we wanted to get new photos of them since the last official photo sitting we did with them was on their wedding day in June of 2003 (this was our very first wedding!!!!!). Someday we will have get around to posting some of their wedding photos, its just hard because we shot the whole thing on 35mm film! I think we did a pretty good job too, but we have definitely grown by leaps and bounds since then!

So here's the shoot, amazing and fun, I had a super difficult time narrowing down my favorites!


I love working with colorful subjects....Jill's shoes and hair feathers added the perfect touch!

Kenny whipped out his Spiderman skills!






My favorite shot of the day! Justin's concept.















Keep a look out, we may be doing a mock "trash the dress" session with Kenny and Jill, ultra stylized!

I'm still up! What, what!?!?! These ROCK! Love the location, and all the fun things you did while keepin' it simple. Love the circles, and how it ties in with marriage & love. Beautiful couple, KILLER sun flare, and awesome style. Keep it UP!

What is this? The first All American A & H shootshop? Give me a break! Real favorite is the shot where the terrible looking couple is like 9 meters tall. You know the one...don't be modest. Terrible looking. I can't believe I just wrote that and didn't erase it. Honestly they'd be a 10 on that "hot or not?" website. Kenny or Jill, if you read this, and you've got a "hot or not?" profile...send me the link. I'll hook you up and vote twice. Twice. (wait, is that 4 or 8 times?)

Jen, that location was located in Chino. We actually wanted to go the abandoned farm houses there, but ran into a construction area where they were putting in a new sewer line and that is the reason for the random cement tubes. Not sure if they are even still there! Best of luck to you!
