I’ve always wanted to be a part of a masquerade ball, so when Lockton Insurance inquired about photography coverage for their company event with that exact theme, I was over the moon. Their event took place on a beautiful brick terrace at the exclusive California Club in downtown Los Angeles overlooking the skyscrapers around. So many of the guests had their masks on, and it looked like we had stepped into a party in Italy!
During one of Southern California’s famous heatwave, Maya held her outdoor birthday party. Thankfully, she held it right by the marina! The breeze was very welcoming, just as much as the smiles on the faces of everyone that attended. And of course, Maya’s smile was the biggest of them all. She looked so cute with her felt-and-glitter tiara!
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!
