Arboretum Couple Shoot: Lache + Bayano

One of my favorite places to spot fall colors is the Arboretum in Arcadia. I had a great time meeting Lache and Bayano there to take advantage of the gorgeous changing foliage.


A lot of photographers try to avoid shooting backlit, for obvious reasons: You want your subjects' faces to be lit, not their backs. But this case, the effect led to a really beautiful photo. This particular shot reminded me of a catalog. With their personality on camera, I'd totally buy whatever these two were selling.

This is a great example of how to dress as a couple for a photoshoot: complementary shades all within a similar color family, but not too matchy-matchy.

This photo has such a great, relaxed feel, like they were having a picnic.

Another reason I love the Arboretum is this waterfall. It makes for a stunning backdrop and is surrounded by greenery year-round.
