Jonathon + Lane - Engagement - Beaumont, Ca by Ulices Del Toro

When Jon told me that him and Lane wanted to do something a little different for their engagement session, it came with no surprise. I have known Jon for some time now, he himself is a creative, and I knew when they had chosen us to be their photographers that our time with them would be anything but conventional.

Jon asked me if i knew of any abandoned buildings or areas covered in graffiti. Luckily for them, I had been eyeing this abandoned house, sitting on top of a hill over looking a valley of fields near Beaumont Ca. How convenient. We took our chances by driving out there and checking it out. Lo and behold, our trip was a success. Not only did we find our way to the house on the hill, but we discovered many more abandoned houses and beautiful fields to fix as our setting. We are beyond excited to photograph these two at their upcoming wedding, it really cannot come quick enough!

Jimmy + Jessica - Engagement - Mormon Rocks, Ca by Ulices Del Toro

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!

Felipe + Iris - Engagement - Twin Peaks Ca. by Ulices Del Toro

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.

Gus + Teresa - Engagement - Downtown Los Angeles, Ca by Ulices Del Toro

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!

Jeremy + Jessica - Engagement - DTLA, Ca by Ulices Del Toro

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!

Sam + Greg - Engagement - Lake Elsinore, Ca by Ulices Del Toro

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!!!
