Natasha and Fred : Los Angeles Engagement Session

January 10th, 2011

I kinda love shooting in the city. It’s probably because I live so far away from it that I get excited every time I go there. I had a great time walking around in Downtown Los Angeles with Natasha and Fred. They are so much fun to be with that we were able to get so many cool shots. They were ready to have fun and I just loved their willingness to just goof around…a great thing for photos! I was so glad that the rain stayed away for the most part and the blue skies even made an appearance at the end of the session. I’m super excited for their wedding this year at The London West Hollywood…that place is so cool. It’s gonna be a great one!

Gina and Albert : Park Plaza Hotel Wedding

November 30th, 2010

It’s pretty awesome when things come together just right for a wedding. Finding a couple that trusts us to do our thing. Shooting at a very cool venue for the first time. Working with a great team of vendors. It was just that for Gina and Albert’s wedding at the Park Plaza Hotel. It’s deceiving because, it’s not really a functioning hotel anymore. It’s actually a venue for all types of events and they shoot a ton of movies there. It was pretty cool when we were shooting and Tey ran into Ryan Reynolds! hahah. But it’s definitely one of my new favorites in Los Angeles. I just love the feel of the building and the shooting possibilities are endless. Congratulations to Gina and Albert and thanks for the trust. It was a blast! Here are a few highlights:

Christine and Shawn : Hakone Gardens Engagement Session

November 5th, 2010

It’s always a treat for me to go up to Northern California to shoot. I just love the change of scenery and the different vibe up there. I met up with Christine and Shawn for their session in Saratoga, CA. It was my first time at the Hakone Gardens and found it to be a beautiful place for photos. Great scenery along with really cool structures that we were able to use for photos, too. It was supposed to rain, but we were pretty lucky and it started to come down right when we finished shooting! Thanks to my friend Karen for coming to help during the shoot! Here are a few from Christine and Shawn’s session.

This was one of those special weddings in a magical location with a great couple with fantastic family and friends. The triple threat of weddings.

Kristine and Morgan : Turtle Bay Resort Wedding

September 22nd, 2010

So, Hawaii is pretty awesome. That’s what we came to realize during our trip. The other thought was “why did it take us this long to come here?!” We were fortunate enough to join Kristine and Morgan for their wedding at the Turtle Bay Resort, which is at the North Shore of Oahu. The North Shore has got to be one of my favorite places ever. I just love the combination of the scenery and people there. The people there are so awesome! We had an amazing time shooting with Kristine and Morgan and their friends and family. They were up for all sorts of photo fun and it was such a treat to shoot is such a magnificent setting. Congrats to Kristine and Morgan and thanks for being such wonderful hosts! We love HAWAII! Here are some highlights from their wedding:
