Sometimes the hardest thing about putting a piece together is picking the right song. For Rachel and Keith's piece, it took all of one hour, maybe two. I went through Songfreedom.com's sleuth of songs and chose Frances England's "All the Ways." When I started putting it altogether, I couldn't stop smiling. It worked perfect with the images we shot.
As for Rachel and Keith, I couldn't ask for more. They made it supremely easy and their kindness, laughter, and love for each other is adorable.
Locations chosen were San Jose University's animation department and the park where Keith proposed. With the animation department, it was appropriate because Rachel and Keith are animation students and they got the go ahead to photograph in one of the rooms. When we walked in, students were working in the room but they kindly moved so we can nab the shots needed. Thank you, thank you!! As a result, we threw confetti, ran around the room, tossed balls, and used neglected-looking hats that were collecting dust at the top of the cabinet (or was it a shelf?).
Thank you Keith! Thank you Rachel! Thank you Animation Department! Thank you Sunset!
