San Jose Rustic Country Engagement Photos – Tammy & Ben

rustic-country-engagement-photos-01

I’m so thrilled to share these photos!  Tammy is one of my dearest girlfriends.  We met in college while we were both interning at the same company and have been wonderful friends ever since.  So I was incredibly honored when her fiancé contacted me (before she did) to ask me to be their wedding photographer!  Isn’t that sweet?   He had planned a surprise engagement and wanted to take care of all the logistics (going so far to book her dream venue and photographer) before he even proposed!   They are having a rustic country style destination wedding in Washington and I’m so happy I get to go photograph it!

For their engagement session – Tammy and Ben wanted their photos to reflect their country wedding theme so they flew me up to San Jose (where they met and fell in love) to photograph their session in the rolling hills on the outskirts of the city.  I always enjoy shooting in new environments and this place didn’t disappoint!  The leaves were bright, colorful and so vibrant and the light was gorgeous and soft.  I love these photos because Tammy is one of my favorite people in the world and I’m so thankful I got to capture a little bit of their huge love for each other.

P.S. Keep an eye out for Part 2 of this post — there were so many good photos that I had to break this post down into two parts!  :)

Fullerton Summit House Wedding – Stacey & Alfredo

fullerton-summit-house-wedding-photos-24

Stacey and Alfredo were married recently at the beautiful Summit House Restaurant in Fullerton.  The marriage ceremony took place in a cute gazebo with great views of the city below. The day was also special because the bride and groom wore three different outfits to pay homage to Stacey’s Korean culture. They partook in a traditional p’ye-baek tea ceremony during the reception. The best part of this ceremony was watching elders throw chestnuts and dates at the bride and groom. The number of each item they caught would predict the number of children they would have! At the end of the day — Stacey commented that it was like having three different weddings with all of the outfit changes and cultures they paid tribute to. Although it was a busy and fast-paced day — I had so much fun shooting Stacey and Alfredo’s wedding and hope you will enjoy these photos below!  :)

Downtown Los Angeles Skyline Engagement Photography – Amy & Andrea

downtown-los-angeles-wedding-photographer-22

I love all of my clients.  I really do.  I’m thankful to have had the opportunity to work with each and every one of them. Then, there some clients who totally get me.  They contact me and tell me how much they love my work and simply put their faith in my creativity to give them the best photos possible.  There is very little direction from them.  They just say, “Do what you do best — we trust you.”

Amy and Andrea are one such couple.  I think it helps that Andrea is also an “artist” (a musician to be exact), and he told me during our consultation that he understood the freedom I needed to produce what I would consider my best work.  The only input they gave regarding their engagement session was that they wanted it to reflect the city they loved — Los Angeles.  So we chose to shoot in the downtown area and got these beautiful photos below.  These two were so sweet and game for anything during our photo session.  They understood my quirky nuances — how I search for good light and trusted me when I asked them to climb over obstacles and crawl under bushes to get to the perfect spot for each image.  I love experiences like these because it doesn’t feel like “work” when I’m shooting.  Instead, it feels incredibly magical because it’s like the stars have aligned.  I’m in my element and producing my very best.  Needless to say, I’m so very excited to photograph Amy and Andrea’s wedding this summer in Malibu.  :)

Los Angeles Baby Family Photographer

los-angeles-baby-photographer-16

I met up with old clients recently whose wedding I shot two years ago.  They kept in touch over the years and when the time came — they asked me to photograph their new three-month-old.  I knew he was going to be a looker because he’s half Indian and half Chinese but I couldn’t have been more surprised to meet him.  He is such a handsome boy.  And those cheeks!  Oh my, I just can’t get enough of them.  :) los-angeles-baby-photographer-17los-angeles-baby-photographer-18los-angeles-baby-photographer-19
