Sam and Simon are the King and Queen of understatements.

When were discussing the details of their engagement session, Sam and Simon told me that they’d like to have their photos taken near their home.

I wasn’t sure what to expect, because well taking a walk around the neighborhood for engagement photos isn’t normal for me.

When I saw their neighborhood my jaw dropped. I couldn’t believe they lived in such a paradise.

I’m super grateful for the opportunity to spend the day we did with Simon and Sam, and for hooking it up with a full season of our new favorite TV show.

Elizabeth and Jon both share a hobby with me and my wife. They love hiking, here’s a quick peak (see what I did there? ;)) at our latest engagement session/hike with this awesome couple. These two have so much love for each other, it made my camera melt. All joking aside, I have to applaud these two. An 8-mile hike in dress shoes/heels isn’t anything to laugh at, but these two, astonishingly excited throughout the whole session, were great.

This won’t be the last you’ll see of Elizabeth and Jon. Stay tuned!

Kytia and Jerrell, an Anniversary in the Woods

February 4th, 2012

we joined kytia and jerrell for their anniversary portrait session in the romantic woods surrounding the fullerton hills in southern california. We enjoyed a warm afternoon in the golden fall light. Kytia and Jerrell were married in Hawaii, on a destination wedding.

 

Kytia and Jerrell were married in Hawaii a few years back before we knew them. This past fall, we shared a special romantic session with them for their Anniversary.

As we walked around the woods, I got to know Jerrell and Kytia a bit more. We talked about Jerrell’s comic book series, “the Red R,” And Kytia’s blossoming acting and modeling career.

I knew that Kytia was used to being photographed and Jerrell was normally behind a pencil when it came to creating art, so this shoot was a bit more challenging than usual.  To keep Kytia from being bored, we made sure that it wouldn’t be the same as any fashion shoot she’d been to, so at the risk of sounding cheesy and cliché we had to keep it real (cue 90’s hiphop music.)

Ashley, Oscar and their Camaro

January 10th, 2012

During one of our client meetings, I asked if there was a location or an event that could tie together their relationship, something that had always been there and that will probably always be there.

During one of our client meetings, I asked if there was a location or an event that could tie together their relationship, something that had always been there and that will probably always be there. They both looked at each other and told me that this Camaro would be it.

While they were dating, still in high school, Ashley used to bring Oscar lemonade as he worked on his Camaro.

Throughout the years, it would bring them to places, require their attention, and give them shelter when it rains.

Brigitte and Elliot started dating six years ago. Elliot, a successful HVAC technician, met Brigitte while he was doing some work in the office she worked at at the time. Fast forward six years and they  began planning their wedding at the Trilogy Country Club.

We started their engagement session at the beautiful Villa Del Sol in Fullerton and we finished it off with a short hike. These photos were taken this past spring in a secluded and very intimate location, I love the how much the color in the leaves popped and the warmth of the golden sunlight brought out the romance between this gorgeous couple. It didn’t take long before the magic of the woods took over and we no longer had to direct Brigitte and Elliot, the moments that happened while my shutter clicked were genuine and real. As they laughed and flirted with each other, it was evident that their wedding day couldn’t come any sooner.
