Baby Lucas Newborn Portraits

October 6th, 2015

We photographed Baby Lucas and his family at inside their quiet Los Angeles home.

It was such a blessing to witness their family grow from a family of three to a beautiful family of four.

Seeing Sam interact with his new baby brother for the first time put the biggest smiles on his parents’ faces.

Shooting weddings, we’re used to high stress situations, but we can definitely get used to this!

Paul and Maggie’s Wedding at St Anne’s Seal Beach

January 6th, 2015

We shot Paul and Maggie’s Engagement Session a while back, check it out if you haven’t seen it :)

We photographed their wedding at St Anne’s Catholic Church in Seal Beach, California.

Many wedding days go without a hiccup, many go slowly, many go quickly, but no two are ever alike.

Paul and Maggie’s wedding is one I won’t soon forget.

Their ceremony was small, quiet, and sincere. There wasn’t a dry eye in the room.

While walking around their ceremony, I ran into an old friend. I stumbled upon my childhood neighbor, Timmy- who played beautiful music during the ceremony.

For their romantic session, we walked around and shot around Main Street.

Just like before, Paul was extremely goofy- which came very appreciated as I sometimes get too caught up with taking photos and can get too serious.

Their reception at the Grand in Long Beach, was just as special.

Surrounded by their friends and loved ones, the night went on filled with captivating music, laughs and good times.

This past winter Paul and Maggie had their daughter and I couldn’t be happier for them.

Congrats Paul and Maggie!

Randall and Marissa, Engagement Session at the LA Art District

January 2nd, 2015

Randall and Marissa had their engagement session in the Art District in Downtown Los Angeles.

We started about midnoon and enjoyed the colors other artists had painted on the walls.

Engagement sessions are a great time for us to get to know our clients better.

We spoke about what they looked forward to most about their wedding, what was left to be planned, and what excites them most about married life.

We learned that Marissa is absolutely in love with Randall and love his jokes. It was hard not to photograph her laughing.

I learned that me and Randall are both Louis CK fans.

Stay tuned for their Orange County Wedding!

Jan and Kat at the Retro Ranch, Temecula

January 1st, 2015

Kat and Jan were married at the end of summer at the Retro Ranch in Temecula, California. They were referred to me by one of our  favorite second shooters, Ferdinand.

Kat and Jan both love to rock climb and paintball- I doubt they do both at the same time, but I may have just created a new sport.

From what I can remember, it was 110 degrees on their wedding day- people were anxiously fanning themselves to stave the heat.

A dry hot wind blew and it made it hard for the mothers’ to light the candle as the ceremony started.

The anxiety went disappeared and time slowed as soon as Kat began walking down the aisle.

There were several tears that dropped and laughters shared that day.

My favorite moment was when Kat’s dad had pulled the trigger a bit too soon and mistook Kat and Jan’s first dance as the father-daughter dance. Jan played on like a true gentleman and kept his cool.

Right after the first dance, a flashmob broke out and a large group of cousins, colleagues, and friends danced in celebration of the beautiful newlyweds.

Enjoy their photos as we enjoyed being a part of their wedding.

Mark and Rae’s San Diego Engagement Session

December 22nd, 2014

I photographed Rae and Mark last august at Balboa Park in San Diego. I thought that it might’ve been a place that I’ve shot at before and when I got there, boy did I have a surprised look on my face. Balboa Park blew me away. I couldn’t believe how big it was. I’ve tried to make it back a few times, but I haven’t taken the time to go through the entire park.

I had a lot of fun with Rae and Mark during their engagement session. We talked about how they met at an airport (note the plane in one the shots.) We cracked jokes and laughed all the park as we stopped and took photos from spot to spot.

After shooting past the sunset, we finished the night off by grabbing some In-n-Out somewhere along the 5.

Enjoy their engagement session and stay tuned for their Long Beach Wedding!

Chris & Raquel’s Wedding Anniversary at the Cicada Lounge, Los Angeles

June 2nd, 2014

We enjoyed Chris and Raquel’s 10th  wedding anniversary at the Cicada Lounge in Los Angeles. Their party had a 40’s theme to it.

Raquel renewed her vows in a way that we’d never seen before, she sang it to him.

From the moment we started, you can feel the love from everyone that was present that day.

The bridal party, the guests… everyone seemed extremely talented. Raquel, who works as a make up artist, did the make up for several of the guests to her event.

Chris, one of the kindest men I’ve ever met, put many of the details together for the wedding.

Happy Anniversary Chris & Raquel, and thank you for having us at your very special night!

Dave and Louise Engagement Session

May 17th, 2014

I completely forgot to blog Dave and Louise’s engagement sesssion! We took this during the summer a while ago. We started the day off with a short hike in the Los Angeles Forest, went for a bike ride, and the hit the beach. Dave and Lo couldn’t get enough of each other.

We enjoyed the fact that they were more adventurous than some couples out there and that they wanted to show everyone what they do on their dates.

It was a particularly hot day that day and the stream at the trail we hiked provided some refreshment. After hitting the trails, we went down for a bike ride around Lo’s house, they zig zagged all over the street and made faces at each other the whole time, I’m not gonna lie- it was pretty cute to watch. We finished the day off with a trip to the beach where we eventually watched the sun go down.

Enjoy Dave and Lo’s adventurous engagement session!
