HELLO!! Nick here, Priscila wanted me to write this blog post because of my “hands on experience” preparing for the AMAZING E-session with Daniel + Hannah.
About 3 weeks before the shoot, Hannah showed us via e-mail an e-session where the photographer had taken an old piano out into a field and took some amazing pictures. Immediately we fell in love with the idea and I began searching on craigslist for a vintage piano! After using my garage sale-negotiating skills i was able to pick up a piano from 1909!!! Only problem was this piano weighed exactly 430 pounds. What am i going to do? Eventually I picked up a Budget truck, loaded the piano inside and searched EVERYWHERE in OC for an AWESOME location to place it for the shoot. I was running out of time… There I was driving in this HUGE budget truck with my brother in law in the back making sure the piano didnt move… We drove from Santiago Canyon to Rancho Santa Margarita to Laguna.. Everything was state property and we were unable to bring this piano anywhere!! There was only one hour left until the shoot, I called Priscila, “Priscila I can not find anywhere to bring this piano..What are we going to do?!” All of a suddent the heavens opened up and I saw an orange field. THIS IS PERFECT!!!! But no it was private property, There was a huge private home on that lot and I had no choice but to ask for permission to shoot there. To make a long story short we were granted access (THANKS RYAN) and we then dragged the 430 pound piano with 4 guys across his yard into the back, over the train tracks… And thank you God, we had just pulled the piano across before the train came. It was quite an experience. And a little bit of a life lesson. What you put into life is what you will get out of life. We went out of our way for this shoot and as you will see these are hands down some of the best pictures we have ever taken. Thanks Hannah and Daniel you guys were awesome looking forward to your wedding! ENJOY THE POST and if I dont see at least 10 comments by the end of this week I will throw an orange at someone .. : )
