After having photographed Carla and Andrew’s beautiful rustic wedding in Oak Glen three years ago, and before their beach maternity portrait session, these expecting parents had two baby shower events, one from each mother! And with the fun theme of ‘adventure’, Carla’s mother’s backyard baby shower was filled with hot air balloons, maps, and a toy biplane soaring through the sky. What a lucky boy!
One part of photography that I really enjoy getting to do is to document various religious events that I otherwise don’t get to experience due to my own religion. This time around, it’s Jack’s Catholic baptism event at the beautiful USC Caruso Catholic Center while being supported by many of their family’s close friends and family.
We quickly photographed Jack getting ready for his big ceremony at a residential house nearby, and once the ceremony at USC was finished, we zipped over to El Cholo restaurant for a fun reception. Marissa and Ron, thanks for having me as your Los Angeles baptism photographer!
Three years ago, I had the honor of photographing Carla and Andrew’s rustic wedding. Now, they’re hitting a new milestone in their life as they add a new addition to family. To document such a momentous occasion, they’ve kindly asked me to photograph their maternity session. How could I not?! So we hit up the beach one recent weekend and swooned over the light that just made them glow in the setting!
On a busy weekend, I met up with Ashley and Dylan on the Santa Monica Pier to photograph their engagement portraits.As far as beaches go, there’s none more iconic than the Santa Monica pier. The colors, the carnival games, the street entertainers, and of course, the ferris wheel.
Dylan actually works in Sacramento and comes down to Los Angeles as often as he can to reunite with his fiance Ashley. How romantic! After swooning enough with these images, I can’t wait to photograph their wedding!
When you meet an awesome couple who decides to hold their wedding date on April 1st, you know it’ll be a fun day to photograph. Just a couple of months prior, we photographed Brett and Rebecca’s engagement session in downtown Los Angeles. This time around, they got ready at The Westin in Pasadena with such a pretty courtyard. And can you believe Rebecca actually hand-crotched her bouquet and his boutonniere?!
Afterwards we traveled to Eagle Rock where the ceremony and reception was to be held at the Center for the Arts, a small venue with amazing natural light. There, in front of close friends and family, they became united and celebrated until the late night.
It’s not everyday that I get requested an engagement portrait session in Disneyland, so when Kathryn and Taylor wanted to do theirs in the happiest place on Earth, I immediately fell in love with them as a client. Dreams really do come true! 😉
I don’t get the chance to go to Disneyland very much so I’m totally jealous that since Kathryn is a park ride engineer, she and Taylor get to go anytime as they want! They led me around the park for some of their favorite spots, and any nooks and crannies that weren’t filled with crowds. Surprisingly, there were a lot of them!
