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!

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!

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!

 We photographed Kris and Jordan’s Engagement Session, last time in Los Angeles. Today we join them for their wedding.

We started the day at the Sheraton in Cerritos, where both Kris and Jordan got ready.

We then moved to their wedding venue at the Rolling Hills Church.

Their reception was held at the Grand in Long Beach.

We had a lot of fun during this one. Every venue we were in that day looked stunning and the bridal party was always full of energy.

Their wedding took place on a Sunday this past spring. On the many weddings I’ve covered, it sometimes is hard for get people on the dance floor.

Even with a workday looming nearby, there was no shortage of people dancing that night, making this one of the rarer occasions.

The crowd loved them, during the speeches, tears flowed, laughter filled the hall and made the night perfect.

Congrats Kris and Jordan!
