Downtown Long Beach Engagement | Ericka & Jeff

I met Jeff a little over 10 years ago in college and over the past 10 years we have always managed to stay in touch with one another. Even though time between run ins could go for months we always found a way to catch up on life with one another. When I got the message about his proposal to fiance Ericka and how they wanted me to be their photographer I was excited and happy but most of all honored.

Their engagement session took place in Long Beach not to far from where they live. They had expressed to me they wanted to do something a little different and I immediately got excited! After a couple drinks to celebrate their engagement we took a nice stroll through Downtown Long Beach. What I loved about their session is the magical moments I captured without having to give them any direction. Some my favorite shots where candid shots of them just enjoying each others company.


A Los Angeles Afternoon Engagement

Sometimes things don't go as planned and when they don't go as planned they turn into something ever better! Christa and Greg's engagement session was nothing short of amazing. The weather was perfect, they looked amazing, and I couldn't have been more excited to shoot with them. Coming into the shoot they where both nervous, those nerves soon went away, and by the end of the shoot we were all laughing and having a great time.

While we explored what the arboretum had to offer I kept catching them in these genuine moments of love when I would turn to them to show them something and they were perfectly "posed". I would just start shooting away without them knowing and came out with some amazing photos of the two of them. This afternoon they made my job easy and they made me fall more in love with my job by being able to give them images they will cherish forever.

Behind The Scenes: Shawn and Stevie's Engagment Session

I recently had the opportunity to help shoot my cousin, Stevie and finance Shawn, engagement shoot with my partner/good friend Dennis. I am really starting to fall in love with these short Behind The Scenes films that him and I are putting together for our clients. We are able to share the love our clients have for one another in not just still photography but also film! I have watched this video numerous times and I can't help but smile to see how happy and in love my cousin is. I can not wait until their wedding in August because I am very thankful that I am able to work along Dennis on that wedding to help capture the big day for Stevie and Shawn! I hope you enjoy the film!

Behind The Scenes: Mike & Gina's Engagment Session

This past Saturday the big day for my friends Mike and Gina finally happened. They finally tied the knot after a decade of being together! So couple months back I finally had the chance to shoot their engagement photos. We took a trip to Newport Beach to this little nook of a community called Crystal Cove. It was the perfect setting with the perfect weather for their shoot that day. While we where shooting my talented friend Dennis filmed some behind the scenes of the shoot and this was the result. Thank you Mike and Gina for having me shoot this special day and your wedding day. I can not wait to share those photos with everyone. And Thank you to Dennis for filming their engagement shoot and being an awesome second shoot for the wedding! Enjoy!
