LA River Center Engagement : Julia & Ruben

I know being in front of the camera is nerve-wracking. Trust me, I’ve been there. But it’s such a pleasure when a couple arrives, put their nerves aside, down a little bit of tequila and let go of their worry. Julia and Ruben were nervous, yes, but as I was editing their engagement photos, I felt like they were old pros. Their happiness is evident and Julia’s smile is truly infectious. I’m smitten with her so I can totally see why Ruben is into her, too. Just one short month until they say I do!

Malibu Engagement Session : Jenny & Eddie

I love engagement sessions because it’s extra time I get to spend with couples. A wedding day can be so chaotic so spending some one-on-one time with a bride and groom, in front of my camera, while they talk and laugh and hug is such a treat. I’m able to really see and hear the reasons they are in love. It’s my favorite time.

Jenny & Eddie have been together for what feels like forever. High school, college, pets, house buying…all the wonderful milestones of life. Now, it is finally their time to get all their loved ones together for a beautiful night to celebrate their relationship. I can’t wait for their wedding next May. It’s gonna be a good one.

SO pretty! I can tell through the photos that they are the sweetest and so in love!


hi! I’m a new follower to your blog so this may be random, but would love to know where her adorable white top is from? Thanks! P.S love these photos!

Some flowers and some dreams.

Recently, a group of my most creative friends got together to create some prettiness. designhunterLA & Mint Vintage Rentals packed their trucks up to the brim with inspiration – flowers, gorgeous furniture, inspired crafts – and drove down to my studio in Long Beach. Veronica styled up some of the dreamiest vignettes and the oh so sweet Courtney knocked it out of the park in front of the camera. Would you believe me if I told you I’ve known these girls for over 10 years? It’s so amazing that we each have found such creative outlets and turned them into careers. It’s more amazing how wonderful we all work together. Here’s a little bit of the pretty that happened that day.

Um….LOVE!!! You are right, so dreamy! The ones with the ferns on the wall are amazing. I want to glue ferns to my walls now. That’s not weird, right?

FERN WALL!? Holy crap that’s so gorgeous. Such amazing images darling. amazing. amazing.

Love this! And love that world map! Mind if I ask where it’s from? I am kind of obsessed with world maps and the colors in that one are perfection :)

So, so good!! Love everything about this.
