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.

Maternity Session with Marcella

I met Marcella a little over 4 years again as we worked together for a short time. In that short time we had discovered that we both knew a certain someone. That certain someone being her husband Jason. Jason and I have know each other for about 8 or 9 years now. We played volleyball in college together and stay friends throughout the years. Jason had suggested we shoot at this beautiful park in Cerritos and we all couldn't have been happier. Come to find out that Jason had spent a lot of time at this park as a child. It was awesome to hear stories of childhood memories and that the location had sentimental value for them. Thank you Marcella and Jason for letting me capture this special day for the 3 of you! Can't wait to meet the little one!

Newport Beach Wedding: Mike and Gina

Over the last few years Mike and Gina have become part of my ohana, and ohana mean Family. They had been together years before I had met the 2 of them but having them become part of my life was a true blessing for myself and for my son as they are 2 of his God Parents. This was another wedding that meant a lot to me to be a part of.

They had a beautiful outdoor ceremony at the Newport Dunes with the gazebo over looking the lagoon, a nice breezy, and cool California Coast where they said "I DO". The reception took place at the Turnip Rose located in Costa Mesa. Their portrait session was beautiful in the court yard of the venue. It was absolutely perfect day for a Wedding.

Thank you Mike and Gina for allowing me to capture this momentous day for the 2 of you and thank you for being an awesome addition to my ohana!

 

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!
