There is never a bad time to head up to the mountains for photos, and both Elysia and Lauren were up for an adventure. We drove up to the San Gorgonio Wilderness and found some beautiful forests for us to play in, but it was even more amazing than we expected. All of the fall colors were in full bloom. We went for a walk through the forest and right away Elysia and Lauren were so comfortable, they had already been excited for this day, and you could tell! On our way out we noticed the clouds rolling over the mountains and all agreed we had to stop and find a place to take some more photos. The weather was perfect this day, and it felt like we could keep taking photos for hours. These two were so fun to be with, they have adventurous hearts and are incredibly in love. Their wedding day cannot come soon enough.
When we met with Darren and Alisha at the Peltzer Winery for their engagement session, we knew we were going to have the best time. These two were high energy and fun from the start, and you can really see it in their photos. They are so full of life and laughter, and clearly in love. They are so excited fro their wedding day, and we just cannot wait to be a part of it!
Tyler + Courtney met at a halloween party, and at that time they had no idea what their first interactions would lead to. Now they are getting ready to start a whole new chapter in their lives, and we couldn’t be more honored to be able to follow them on their new journey. We met up in Forest Falls for their engagement session, it was a perfect quiet day and it felt as though we had the entire mountain to ourselves. We ran around, laughed, and we captured these two falling in love all over again.
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!
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!!!
