I lived in San Jose for almost 30 years before I ever heard of Bernal Ranch. The historic ranch is located in South San Jose, and connects to Santa Teresa County Parks. My friend Kenny mentioned the park to me during a photo talk. Ever since then, it’s been a go to of mine and I love shooting Bernal Ranch portraits.
For our session with Amanda, we waited till the late afternoon to work with the beautiful golden hour lighting at the ranch. Amanda and her friend Mariah alternated in between sets to maximize our golden light.
Being in front of a camera is nothing new for Amanda. In case you didn’t know, Amanda is also a professional dancer for the San Francisco 49ers. Not everyone keeps their cool when shooting in hot weather. However, Amanda was very easy going and a trooper as the temperatures topped 100 degrees.
At last, here are some of our favorite images from our Bernal Ranch portraits. Enjoy!
