Picture Perfect Scenery

Hello everyone! My name is April Cadran of April Cadran Photography and I have been a photographer for as long as I can remember. My interest in photography started during my childhood, not long after I moved from Franklin County, Massachusetts to Orange County, California; the Southern part of the state. Up until age 10, I spent my childhood going to the beach, riding my skateboard, and jumping my banana seat bike off curbs and speed bumps. That was until my grandmother gave me my first camera, a Kodak Disk 4000 and 6 packs of film. It didn't take long for me to outgrow my tiny camera and by age 14, with the help of my mother, I was able to finance a Minolta X-370s 35mm camera with lenses to take photographs of local bands. This was an exciting adventure for me that I have continued to pursue.

I now live in Rocklin, California, which is the Northern part of the state. It was a big change moving from beach cities to a valley surrounded by huge mountains. I embraced the change by taking day trip with my camera and photographing my travels. I enrolled into photography classes and soon after enrollment, I transformed my master bathroom into a darkroom where I spend many hours developing and printing my adventures. I have since then upgraded my camera equipment to digital using Canon body and lenses. I have come a long way.

Here is a recent engagement session with my good friend Joyelle O'Campo and her fiancé Michael Corpora, in San Luis Obispo, California. I had the privilege of spending two days in San Luis Obispo with both of them capturing their love for one another while enjoying the weather, food, lighting, and the picture perfect scenery for their engagement photographs.

San Luis Obispo is a sentimental place for Michael. Michael graduated from California Polytechnic State University in San Luis Obispo. The scenery was beautiful and the perfect place for engagement photos. Plus, I am always up for an adventure.

I strive to make ever photo shoot enjoyable and memorable for each client or friend. I have known Joyelle for over 20-years and while she is very comfortable with me, both Joyelle and Michael are not very comfortable in front of a camera. By redirecting their attention to each other, I was able to get these amazing photographs of them.

I specialize in adventurous, natural, and fun photography. I focus on doing three things well; I will treat you as is I have known you for years, I will make amazing photographs of you and your loved ones and we will have a ton of fun along the way. I am also a food photographer, the food always has fun!
