Welcome everyone, and may I invite you all to come and take a look at a very special day for a very special couple. Today we had the absolute pleasure of spending our time with the lovely couple Jason and JiYeon as they embark on the next leg of their journey through life, together as one. We had the opportunity to spend the day with the dynamic duo at Angel’s Flight in Downtown Los Angeles, and may I say, the beauty of the brick work and skyline truly compliment this electric couple. And the way they look at each other, you would swear they set the night ablaze. With a last fantastic shot of the night skyline of the city, and a warm couple’s embrace, we send them off with the best of luck and wish them all the happiness the comes with love and the beauty of marriage.

It is absolutely incredible standing between two lovers with such a magnetism towards one another the way Jon and Kim are drawn towards the other. We find ourselves on campus at the beautiful California State University Long Beach as we celebrate Jon and Kim joining as one, and as they prepare for the big day. With an absolutely radiant smile, it would seem Jon can not help but be drawn in, and who would blame him? We then had a chance to tag along and catch an intoxicating skyline down by Hilltop Park in Signal Hill.  From classic straight to dapper, this couple keeps it fresh and fancy in the sunset. With warm colors and warm smiles, please enjoy the photos as much as it was an enjoyment to shoot them!

After meeting during a scuba diving outing, the bond between Tiffany and Pete grew quickly and became something much more than companionship.  With a wedding set to be at the Descanso Beach Club in Avalon, among the port and ocean, it was no surprise that the engagement shoot would echo a nautical theme. For our rendezvous, we met in Downtown Long Beach at Shoreline Village.  With a quaint home-town feel of small stores and boutiques on the pier, along with the plethora of sailboats, yachts, and other boats docked adjacent, this was the perfect place to make lasting memories.

Kids aren’t the only ones who can be playful and giddy, meet Guy and Melody who had a lot of fun while we shot their engagement at Alamitos Pier & Colorado Lagoon. What makes this content special is that these two are just really fun and off the cuff! These are some of the best types of images we like to capture because they always turn out so natural. Not to say that the other engagement sessions aren’t great too…we just happen to like these photos a lot! Guy and Melody were so easy going and they totally opened up to being photographed in some of our favorite spots around Long Beach. They clearly enjoyed being around each other, showing lots of PDA, laughing, flirting, dancing in the ocean and kicking off their shoes to walk in the sand. Guy and Melody will be getting married in the near future in Zimbabwe, Africa, and we look forward to possibly accompanying them on their journey to photograph their wedding.

Some couples just flow easy together like a fine wine and a good meal, and Alan and Jenae are the perfect example. Not only do they look comfortable in casual day clothing but they also look like they own the world when they slip into something more fancy like these photos show. And even though we opted to take their engagement photos at some of the usual places like downtown LA’s  City Hall Park and at the Grand Park Fountains, we put a little of our magic into the shots to make them turn out fun & candid. There’s nothing like grabbing a shot at just the right time to capture a priceless expression. Downtown Los Angeles also affords us the unique  architecture, beautiful fountains, and secret little nooks & crannies to work in… it’s all so inviting. Can’t you just see yourself there, too? We love the contrast of getting those lit night shots, too that highlight the couple in all of their glory Read More

One thing we really enjoy is taking engagement photos of couples in beautiful surroundings throughout the Southland and since there are so many to chose from, it’s always a photographer’s dream. We especially enjoyed accompanying Billy and Shannon to Santiago Parks Regional Park in Orange County for these fun shots. Lying peacefully in east Orange alongside the Santiago Creek, the 1,269-acre Santiago Oaks Regional park is a nature lover’s paradise. This secluded refuge offers hikers, bikers and equestrians the natural charm of mountain vistas, an orange grove, a meandering creek and a mature forest of many different species of trees. Wildlife abounds and a series of interconnecting trails leads through shady groves and to a lookout that features an awe-inspiring view of Orange and the surrounding foothills. Billy and Shannon were at ease when we took these photos of them having a good time whether it was showing off some “Mr. and Mrs.” beverage coozies, sharing an embrace, walking the trails Read More

Whoever said three is a crowd probably never had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Penguin. The black and white stuffed animal in the photos belongs to Brooke and Kevin, two very funny Long Beach natives who shared him with me for their photo engagement session in their hometown. The couple decided they wanted to keep the shoot close to home which proved great because we went to some wonderful places including a visit to a beautiful California State University, Long Beach property (top secret), frolicked through some colorful fields, got close to nature, and ended the day at the Belmont Pier right before sunset. It’s rare that we meet two such down to earth people who made us laugh throughout the day, their humor is definitely contagious. During our time together they were like two teenagers totally in love: playful, happy, and casual. They even opted to were jeans rather than get dressed up so they could be comfortable and carefree.

The look of love is easy to capture on film when you have a couple like Jon and Alexis – especially when the backdrop is breathtaking Laguna Beach, California. With its picturesque  surroundings at almost every corner – from its winding side streets and world class resorts such as the Montage  to its sandy shores – this city with a European flair oozes with romance.  And endless places to photograph. Being new to California, Jon and Alexis took a leap of faith when they agreed to our suggestion of shooting in Laguna. They enjoyed the images we captured so much, they asked us to shoot their spring 2015 wedding in the Sunshine State, Florida. It will be held at The Strand in Naples, a truly gorgeous Floridian Country Club. On this photo adventure, the couple enjoyed long walks along the breathtaking Montage shoreline, trekking and braving giant rock formations, strolling around quaint downtown, and finally taking a respite on a sidewalk bench after so much fun.  They are a lovely couple who Read More
