We had originally planned to shot Brandon and Danelle’s engagement photos at Lakeside Amusement park but about 3 minutes into shooting park security made us stop. Apparently, there are now forms that need to be filled out. A new procedure we weren’t aware of. We filled out the required paperwork and waited…. and waited…. and waited…. and finally gave up. The owner wasn’t returning calls to the park. At this point Lakeside Amusement Park was clearly un-amusing and we’d lost the late afternoon light!
Plan B – three weeks later. We met Danelle and Brandon by the Mayan Theater on Broadway. The Mayan has very cool design features and the area around there has fun walls and building. After the show at the Mayan let out the manager even allowed us into the theater to shoot. Plan B was so totally different than our original plan! We had a great time with Brandon and Danelle – they were willing to give anything a try, relaxed and fun to be with. I’m sure their wedding day will be just as great!
