Shirley & Aslan : Engaged

Shirley and Aslan are incredibly darling. I’ve always believed that like attracts like and the moment this couple was sent my way by one of my favorite brides, I felt at ease. They are simple. And fun. And wildly in love with one another, moving together effortlessly. Literally. 24 days before their wedding, they are moving into their first home all while planning an engagement session, hanging out with friends and finalizing wedding details. With smiles on their faces and lots of room left for kisses, these two are the definition of a happy couple.

After 3 years together, Shirley and Aslan will be married later this month in what’s sure to be a colorful wedding. I’m so excited they entered my life. I mean, just check out their photos. Look at the movement and the life and the love. Need I say more? Shirley and Aslan, thank you for being so awesome. I love being around you two and I cannot wait to share your day with your family and friends! xoxo

Shirley saw this old car driving by the Hermosa Beach Pier. She stopped the driver and talked him into parking and letting us use his baby for a bit. 😉

It’s always my pleasure to photograph raw emotion. Shirley and Aslan completely let go in front of my lens and I couldn’t be happier with the results. <3 You can’t tell from the photos but this day was freezing. And windy. So windy it knocked me over a few times.  This is my favorite. I want it on a canvas. Like, now.
