Ok this shoot was super fun!! Not all business team portrait shoots involve the San Diego harbor, champagne toasts and jumping in the sand. But this team knows how to have fun and literally kick up their heels!!
I had the honor of working with Mike Chiesl and his team of realtors and support staff to create an iconic image for their holiday marketing. The Chiesl Group didn’t want a boring, stuffy corporate photo, so we collaborated about ideas that would represent them as San Diego real estate experts. Mike is a former Officer in the Marine Corps, and his heritage as a proud member of the military is very much a part of the fabric of who he is and how he serves his clients. So what better backdrop than the San Diego skyline, taken from Coronado Island?!
Immediately upon meeting the rest of his team, I knew we had a group of down-to-earth, laid back professionals. Each person in this group was so incredibly friendly and willing to do whatever we asked as part of the photos … including walking IN THE SAND in heels (I mean, let’s be honest NOT many women would be cool with that!!)
And since this shoot was designed with the holidays in mind, we ended the photo session with a champagne toast — because, why not!?
I loved every second with this group of people and I know their clients must feel the same way when they are working with this team. Cheers to you Mike Chiesl Group!!
