When we found out that Jimmy and Jessica were dancers, we knew we were about to get into something really fun! We took them up to one of our favorite spots with some pretty epic views to show off their dance moves. It was perfect! We hiked some trails and climbed some rocks, but it was so worth it. They practiced some of the dances they were preparing for their big day, and we really just cannot wait for that day to come!
When I first sat down to get to know Felipe and Iris, it was clear to me that these two are a perfect pair, and their enthusiasm for their big day got me just as excited even though they had just started planning everything out. We decided to head up to Twin Peaks for their engagement session, and things could not have gone any better!
Felipe is a huge Green Bay Packers fan, and we joked about having a Green Bay wedding! Rightfully so we had to do a few photos sporting some of his gear, and I am almost certain he will be sporting some green and yellow at his wedding. We strolled around the woods, found some epic spots for photos and had an amazing time watching these two fall in love all over again.
When we reached the peak of the mountain, the fog rolled in. It got a little windy, and a little cold, but it did not phase either Felipe or Iris and it made for some pretty magical photos.
We had such an awesome time following Gus and Teresa around Downtown Los Angeles. They were very specific about the locations they had chosen, from the two buildings across each other they had worked at when they met, to the walks they would take together. The city looks good on them, and we cannot wait to photograph their wedding and spend some more time with these two amazing people!
The San Gabriel Mission is full of history and beauty. It was also the perfect setting for Joseph and Gracie's 'Day of the Dead' themed engagement session. It was so awesome to explore the Mission with these two, everywhere we turned the building was adorned with rusting door hinges and weathered beams of wood covered in vines and plants. This was also my first time meeting these two, and they were seriously so amazing. They were both a bit nervous about their photo session when we got started, but it didn't take long before these two forgot the camera was in front of them and fell in love all over again! Their love for each other came so naturally, it was so great to see these two just be in love and enjoy their time together. The anticipation for their wedding was so strong, and by the end of the shoot we could not wait for their upcoming Pasadena I Do's.
We met up with Jeremy and Jessica at Union Station in Downtown Los Angeles. We knew there was a possibility of rain, but we decided to take our chances and risk the rain for some amazing photos. As soon as we arrived, it poured down rain with some crazy high winds, but neither of us were discouraged. Luckily for us, they too saw an opportunity for an awesome session. They had no problem going out in to the rain and enjoy themselves. It turned out to be such a great shoot. The rain let off, and the rest of the session was all sunshine and clouds as we strolled around the Arts District in Los Angeles capturing these two enjoy each other, laughing, hugging, kissing and of course looking forward to their big day!
We had so much fun at Garren and Sara's engagement session! We found these awesome fields in the hills of Redlands, and thanks to their willingness and Sara's ability to rock a hike in high heels, we were able to get some pretty epic shots! I have known Sara sometime now, and since I have gotten to know Garren, we believe they are just an amazing couple and we feel so honored to be a part of their journey together!
Patrick and Melinda are one of the coolest couples we've ever had the pleasure of working with! When we first met up with them we hit it off, they are so much fun to be around and have easily become great friends! For their engagement session we walked around Downtown Pasadena in this cute little area with little shops and bistros. We met up at Camilo's California Bistro where they have shared many dates. We had the whole restaurant to ourselves, so it was fun to recreate some of their dates and watch them enjoy themselves and play around. They really are such a great couple to be around, and we cannot wait to spend the day at USC for their big day!
With their wedding right around the corner, I wanted to share Sam and Greg's awesome engagement session! These two were so great to hangout with! I won't mention how much offroading or hiking we did to get to this spot, but they really are amazing for letting me bring them here! Because of our little adventure, it made this session that much greater, and I cannot wait for their wedding this month!!!
