best los angeles engagement photographer

After photographing this amazing couple — I have to say I really love what I do and feel so blessed to have this photography thing as my career.  I actually met Heather several years ago when she contacted me to do a portrait session for her, and then reconnected with her years later at her day job for totally unrelated purposes!  I knew it was serendipity when her now-fiance contacted me (without her knowing) because he wanted me to capture the moment he would propose to her.  He had a lovely plan set up for earlier this Fall but  it didn’t go through as planned so I wasn’t there to capture the actual event.

Nonetheless, they are engaged (it was a sweet intimate proposal that he ended up doing) so we scheduled a time for their engagement session!  I’m so happy I got to capture these photos because I knew Heather was a sweetheart many years ago when I first met her, and it’s nice to know that Peter is just as kind and endearing.  It was great seeing these two together and ready to start the next chapter in their lives.  They aren’t getting married until 2016 — but I’m already looking forward to their wedding day!  :)

holiday card photos los angeles

It seems like yesterday that I photographed Pauline’s baby bump, and soon thereafter, Dexter’s baby photos!  I got together with them again to take photos for their upcoming Holiday cards.  We took this opportunity to capture photos of Pauline’s second baby bump and did a mini-maternity/family/baby photo session in one.  It was so fun to see how much Dexter has grown. He is the most active and energetic toddler — I’m not sure who was more tired after the session — me or him!  He is so smart, friendly and such a little love bug.  He kept running over to me behind the camera, and always wanted to hold my hand whenever we went walking to our next photo location.

There was one point during the session where I was doing portraits for his parents alone (nice to have a nice updated photo of just the two of them) and he ran over and placed his hand ever so gently on her belly.  He did this without being prompted, and it just melted my heart.

He is going to be the best big brother.  Congrats again Pauline and Philip!  So happy for your sweet little family!  :)

beautiful callway winery wedding photographer photos

Judy and Ryan were married at the picturesque Callaway Vineyard and Winery in Temecula recently, and I wanted to share some of my favorite photos from their wedding day.  I love that we took time after the ceremony to take formal portraits right in the middle of their beautiful vineyards.  This is just a sneak peak at the full post to come — so enjoy these gorgeous images in the meantime.

P.S. I have a lot of weddings and portrait sessions to post on my blog so be prepared for many more posts!  :)

Liz and Eric were actually recently married when they contacted me!  I wasn’t the photographer at their wedding but they had a great event at The Beach Club in Santa Monica over the summer and once everything was done and over with — they realized they only had a few portraits from their wedding because the day went by so fast — there just wasn’t enough time for them!  Believe it or not, this actually happens a lot because weddings always run late and before you know it — the day is done!

Luckily, they both thought it was worthwhile to get back into their wedding attire and book a formal portrait (also known as “day after” or “trash the dress”) session with me.  Eric is currently studying at UCLA so they liked the idea of taking some photos there and ending at the beach right in front of their wedding venue (The Beach Club) for a few sunset shots.  I loved that we were able to capture so many amazing photos on the UCLA campus at Royce Hall and in the Sculpture Garden.  Liz and Eric were both relaxed and not stressed out.  They even flew Liz’s mom in to participate in the session and we were able to take some lovely mom and daughter photos too.  I thought that was so sweet!  Everyone really had a lot of fun and I’m so in love with the timeless classic portraits we captured below.  Enjoy!
