Lily and Ricky’s engagement session location was extra special to them both. This magical city was used as a backdrop to the moment when Ricky popped the question to Lily. During was suppose to be a girl’s night Ricky surprised Lily with a red Rose and shocked the crowd when he got in one knee to ask for her hand in marriage. These two lovebirds will soon be tying the knot in Carondelet House in Los Angeles. Another beautiful Gem in DTLA! Both being fashionistas, I can’t wait to see what they wear on their special day in December!!
One of the many clients I fell in love with. Evelyn and Julio had their ceremony Skypark Drive in Torrance. It was a rainy Sunday afternoon as Julio and Evelyn said their I do's. Rain is always seen as a sign of fresh start and to them I wish them nothing, but the best of luck and love as they start their first year as husband and wife. To this day I can still remember the way their entire family knew how to have a blast and the unity they all had.
Ana and John are one of the many couples I've had the privileged to photograph who have inspired me to see what love can be. I was shocked to see how hands on John was throughout their entire wedding. He was the one who reached out to me and gushed about the beauty of Ana. He told me all about their plans after their wedding, which included buying their very first home together.
Throughout the entire session, they had a blast posing like the world was their runway. I could not get enough of how Ana used her outfit to her advantage, which included her sister's handmade flower crown. She looked and felt like the most beautiful bride. This summer day was so worth it as we enjoyed this amazing spot till the sun set behind them. Afterwards, we enjoyed our summer night eating pizza at my favorite Italian restaurant in Echo Park. Stay tuned till I show you their beautiful wedding.
Gema and Cameron got married this past July and I am so happy I am finding some time to finally share their beautiful wedding with you. I can still remember the way they looked at each other with so much love throughout their entire wedding day. Even though they are miles apart throughout the year they are living proof love grows stronger with distance when two souls are committed to each other.
The cherry on top of their day was frolicking in this field as well as orange groves, it was so much fun!
The moment I met Diana and Daniel for our initial consultation I knew we were going to become great friends! Maybe it was the way they both kept it real throughout the session, which I love! We stayed talking for hours to the point we lost track of time.
Let me tell you a little bit about them! They met in high school senior year in biology class. Daniel and Diana were both very smart students. One day Daniel needed a tutor to help him with his homework, but we all know it was an excuse to talk to Diana. They finally went out, they got married a couple of years later. It wasn't the way they both dreamt of, but they knew they loved each other so much, they were willing to wait till they were able to walk down the aisle and make their eternal love official in front of Gods eyes. They both attended college as well as worked rigorous hours at work to be able to pay for schooling, in the back of their mind they both knew they wanted to marry through the church.
Finally, in March, they were able to make their dream and family's dream come true. Diana with a huge smile on her face walked down the aisle. This church had special meaning to her family it is where she, her sisters, and brother did their first communion and confirmation. Once they finally said I do and got a few moments to thank God for this glorious moments, they walked down the aisle, Diana made eye contact with her proud father.
They danced the night away with their family and friends. I have never met a family full of life and happiness. So many moments they will never forget. Even Edgar and I (once we were off the clock danced the night away with the bride and groom not because we were weirdos, but because they invited us ;) )
Diana, we LOVE you & Daniel so much! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for bringing us in as photographers turned friends, and treating us like family! Please let us know when you are back in town, we miss you both in Cali!!
Kim and Zach are one of my favorites! Their love for adventure hiking, the great outdoors and each other made this session one I will always remember. It was our first time venturing into a different location, a hidden location close to Sequoia, once visited by Kim when she was a kid. We all rode out with Zach's uncles truck following behind us, it felt like we were in a parade driving down the road. One of the surprising element is while Kim and Zach shared a kiss in the field it started to rain, it made this session that much more special. We could've stayed here all day, the location was too breathtaking. Kim and Zach will be getting married this October, I am too excited for their upcoming wedding
