Kim +Zach's Forest Engagement Session

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

Claudia + Sal= An Equestrian Session

Claudia and Salvador met through a family member.  From the first moment they met, it was love at first sight.  If it was up to Salvador he would have married her yesterday, he is crazy in love with Claudia! 

It was an honor documenting this special day for both of them! I had such an amazing time!  They welcomed Edgar and I to their family's home with open arms and we couldn't be more thankful! 

 

Rosa + Everardo = The Observatory Engagement Session

Rosa's and Everardo's session was so much fun!  I loved how adventurous they were in picking their location in LA, the Griffith Observatory is the perfect location to capture their love story. 

 She herself is an amazing photographer in Porterville.  Evardo has been the one to push her constantly when things get difficult in her business.  No matter what he is the one who believes she is capable of accomplishing her goals.

She comes from a family who is hardworking and dedicated.  With that strength and ambition to keep on giving her family the best possible, she has successfully impacted so many people's life through her amazing work.  

I can not wait to be able to capture their amazing wedding day and finally have their families and loved ones witness this special day..  

Thank you

The moment I met Citlali and Daniel I knew this shoot was going to be so much fun!  Besides greeting us with one of the warmest hugs, they carried a smile of excitement.  The light was shining, the day was filled with golden rays, and Citlali and Daniel were ready for an adventure.   Daniel kept his eyes on Citlali constantly telling her jokes, just to see her beaming smile.  Some of  the many features he loves about her.  They danced, held hands, and kissed as the last rays of the sun hit the treasured city.  Keeping each moment as a cherished memory and a reminder of them becoming husband and wife. The last part of this session took place in a parking lot overlooking the city.  It was the best way to catch the sunset!

Citlali and Daniel, we had a blast with you two!  Thank you for being so adventurous and laughing throughout your session.  By the way, that wind gave you such a Beyonce moment! I can not wait for your fall wedding in Springville Ranch, The Big White Barn.   

 

Nayeli and Kam's Engagement Session

It was no surprise when Nayeli said yes! to Kam's marriage proposal. He planned weeks in advance for the perfect way to ask Nayeli for her hand in marriage. He knew her love for the sunny beach and planned a lunch and walk by the beach. Nayeli had no idea what was awaiting at the end of the their walk, he kneeled down(in a very Kam's style) and asked her for her hand in marriage. She is really hard to surprise, so this was completely unexpected for her. Her friends cheered her in the background as she nodded her head and uttered the words "Yes"

They plan to get married in December! What a more perfect to end this year and ring in the new year! I can not wait to spend more time with this amazing couple and I can not wait to capture their very first moments as husband and wife.
