What I love about this session
1) Union station is and will always be one of my favorite spots to shoot. It’s classic, timeless, and full of character. A perfect backdrop with history, compositional lines, and colors.
2) As I post this, I realized all my latest posts have been interracial relationships and that makes me really happy. That’s because I’m reminded that there are people who have not only accepted cultural differences but cherished and embraced them. Yay for culture mixing!
3) If you ask me, I think Erica and hardy make quite a cuttle little couple. Happy, expressive, fun, and good looking icon smile Meet Erica and Hardy. Downtown Los Angeles Engagement. Check out how much fun they have in the photos in this post.
4)  Underground metro shots are starting to become one of my favorite things to shoot. Reminds me my shoots in New York City.
5) Can’t wait to photograph their wedding in a couple of months!

Hey check it out! It’s my first wedding I’ve blogged in a while! I’m trying to be good about my blogging lately to make up for the long time that I’ve neglected this.
What I love about this wedding
1)When I first checked out Saratoga Springs Campground on the website I fell in love. Then when I went to go scout the location I fell in love again. And of course when I finally went to there to shoot Robyn and Jake’s wedding I fell in love thrice. I wish I could insert one of those new facebook emoticons here.
2) I’ve shot some beautiful first looks in my career, but not only was this first look spot amazing, Jake’s reaction to seeing Robyn for the first time is just downright precious. His jaw dropped, had it dropped any lower he would’ve been drinking out of the stream below. Check out his expression.
3) I think I’ve been pretty lucky in my career as a photographer and I think I can say I got lucky again with this wedding. It rained and rained during this day, but right before ceremony the rain stopped.Thank goodness.
4) I’m also lucky because Robyn and Jake are such sweet people. And talented. Jake is a musician by trade so that’s really awesome. But also bilingual..in Korean! I didn’t know he was able to speak Korean so when he did during the wedding rehearsal my mind exploded for every character that he spoke. Boom!
5) Finally, I want to point out something that I don’t normally write about. It’s a shout out to Omar, who is Robyn’s former boss. That dude can dance. I’ve never seen anyone tear up a dance floor like that guy. When he was done dancing you could see steam come off his head. Wow. I tried to battle him at the end of the night and lost dearly.

What I love about this session

1) First off, Eileen’s one of my dear friends in life. We may not be as close as we once were in high school but when we hang out it’s always good and we always pick up where we left off. And I’m super glad she’s still the same. She hasn’t changed.

2) Culver City is one of the coolest places I know in southern California. As you know, I love cool locations because cool locations mean cool photos. There’s definitely a couple in this collection that are so cool and edgy! I’m sure you’ll be able to figure out which ones those were.

3) I think Eileen and Joe make such a cute couple icon smile Meet Eileen and Joe! Culver City Engagement! They’re so fun-loving and good together. Wouldn’t you think so?

4) There’s one shot below with a shadow that cuts the diagonally across the photo. Joe calls it the “Christian Rock Band Album.” I agree, it sort of does look like one icon smile Meet Eileen and Joe! Culver City Engagement!

5) I love the photos with the words “everyday” and “make out” It makes the photo so much fun. The “everyday” photo was mean to meant to have the message kiss everyday icon smile Meet Eileen and Joe! Culver City Engagement!

What I love about this session

1) I love this session because there’s nothing ordinary about it. Everything from the location to the outfits were very fun, unique, and/or creative. Plus we ended up at a dessert place at the end of the session. Which makes everything that much…sweeter icon smile Meet Gilbert and Danielle! East Bay Oakland Engagement Session

2) The location is an abandoned naval base. Who would in the right mind would want to shoot there for an engagement session? That’s right. Us. We do. And it turned out awesome. It was filled with colors, abandoned buildings, shipping crates, empty parking lots, and things I’ve never even seen before.  So much yes, so much win.

3) Gilbert and Danielle had two outfits for their engagement session. One was a traditional vietnamese outfit which made them stand out in front of old buildings and backgrounds. I wasn’t sure about them at first, but they sure add a lot of fun and a lot of color punch! Gilbert’s second outfit was a marvel shirt. Definitely a first for me, but definitely a lot of fun! I love fun!

4) If you haven’t seen the photos yet, there is a lot of smiles and laughter. Lots. A lot more than my usual session. I love it because that’s who they are, and they brought it out of each other. All I had to is click, click, click icon smile Meet Gilbert and Danielle! East Bay Oakland Engagement Session
