Nancy and Albert's Wedding at San Gabriel Mission

Romance-191.jpg

Nancy and Albert’s love story started out with being friends. They were not each others type for sue or at least that’s what they thought. Sparks started to flare once they truly got to know each other….

Here are a couple of words by Nancy “ We became good friends we had the same lunch schedule. Albert was NOT my type and he will say I wasn’t his! 2 years later both of us recently single we started to change the conversations from basic water cooler talks to getting to know each other on a more personal level, suddenly we both started feeling strange feelings for each other we both tried to fight it. Albert left the company and when he did we decided to go out for happy hour, the rest is history we’ve been inseparable ever since!”

Here is what they had to say about their proposal “Albert proposed June 10 th 2017 on his birthday weekend, he told me he wanted to go out for a drink he invited sibling and mine. We decided to meet at my sister's house and when we arrive we walk into a house full of the family both his and mine, EVERYONE is recording and crying and next thing you know Albert is on one knee asking me to marry him. With the help of our friends and family, he pulled off a surprise engagement with a reception to follow. It was beautiful!”

Their wedding day was filled with love from them and their entire family. You can see the love their parents had for the happy couple. Nancy’s sister speech during toast got a lot of us in tears. It was a heart-wrenching moment, but she felt safe by having Albert by her side.

This couple’s love is like no other, this homebody cuties know how to show love for their family!

I felt like I was one of their family members as I followed them through this journey from their beautiful engagement session in Big Bear to now their wedding day at the Bagramian Hall. It is couples like them that make my job such a joy! Thank you guys for trusting me to capture the next chapter of your love story!

Erica and Adrian celebrated their ten years together by officially tying the knot.  

They unofficially first met on Erica’s sixteen birthday, but it wasn’t until later Adrian and Erica noticed each other they were in each others childhood photos.

 Their paths attempted to cross several times, but for some reason the stars aligned and they caught each other’s eyes years later in Dockweiler beach.  

Erica and Adrian are the kind of couple who’s love inspire me.   Erica carries a joyful and warming personality that made me feel like we were old friends catching up.   

I was blown away by how she planned her galaxy wedding day theme.  As well as the importance she placed on her romantic photo session as well as the love I can see in Adrian's eyes when he looked at his wife.

From her first look to the sunset romantic session at Malaga Cove library.  I could not get enough of the chemistry and love they had for each other.  Her lace detailed David's Bridal dress shined throughout her entire wedding day. 

I'll never forget capturing that moment during their romantic session because it's exactly why I love being a wedding photographer.

Erica and Adrian, I'm so happy that you two have found each other.  You two are the reason why I further believe in Serendipity.  I'm thankful not only to have been your photographer but also that I had the opportunity to meet such an incredibly kind, fun, and adventurous couple.  

I can't wait to see what the future has in store for you both and that you're both exploring the world once again.  

 

 

Grayson and Joe Engagement Session

Grayson and Joe are the definition of laid back couples.  From the moment we met we met I knew they were going to be a ton of fun to work with,  I still remember their love for vinyls and old school music.  As we did the session we talked about the different records we own, of course Joe beat me he has THE BEST collection.   This session to me was extra special because we literally created beautiful images right on their neighborhood of El Segundo, getting a closer glimpse of who they are.  It was a beautiful cloudy morning when we did the session, perfect temperature for a summer morning, and I got the chance to finally meet the infamous Lennon! He is such a cutie <3

 I love the way they make each other laugh, how they balance each other out,  and I still can’t get over how amazing her ring is! 

 I got the opportunity to see them and the entire family  again during my Christmas session and what a surprise I received from them,  my very own light blue record player.  I use it every time I am editing my work! It was such an honor to have two individuals who not only are madly in love, but also open their doors to me.  I will forever be grateful to have had the honor to document these special moments in their life.

Yuri finally gave birth to Camila! so I thought this would be the perfect time to share her lovely session with you all.  She is such a strong mommy, I can only imagine how happy she is to be able to hold her baby girl in her arms.  Her Palos Verdes session is definitely one I will remember, throughout her session Yuri was so celestial taking in the scene and simply enjoying this sweet moment with her baby girl. Big hugs Yuri, you are going to be an amazing mommy
