los angeles engagement photographer marriage equality

In light of today’s historic news – (the Supreme Court has ruled in favor of marriage equality, making marriage legal in all 50 states!) –  today’s post is extremely special, and I’m holding back tears of incredible joy as I write this.  I’m happy for all couples out there – regardless of your gender or sexual orientation – we all now have the human right to pursue joy, marriage and commitment equally.  Hooray for America, and hooray for LOVE!

I’m especially ecstatic for this couple today.  Juan and Raul are amongst my favorite clients ever, and I’m so honored they chose me to photograph their upcoming wedding this Fall.  They have the kindest souls and the biggest hearts.  We’ve met several times and each time we gather – I am astounded by their love for each other.  Even though they’ve been engaged and wedding planning for a while before today’s ruling – it’s unfortunate that they’ve already encountered several stumbling blocks and prejudice from certain vendors.

Even though the road to their special day has not been smooth – they’ve taught me so much about patience, about understanding, teamwork, and the importance of a united front in the face of adversity.  Raul is passionate and feisty (just like me!), and Juan is the epitome of calm and rational.  As a couple – they gel so well.  Raul was a little nervous during their engagement session, and Juan stepped up to the plate and made him feel so safe and secure.  In turn, Raul became so much more confident and implemented many creative ideas and suggestions during the photo shoot!  I see how perfect they are together, how they build each other up, and choose to love each other despite their differences.  Isn’t that just incredibly beautiful?  And isn’t that what love is about?! #lovewins

Okay I have to stop here and talk about their OUTFITS!  They came up with the brilliant idea of renting top hats and black coat tails for their engagement session and we had a vintage inspired victorian era photo shoot!  I love how timeless and unique these images are –and it doesn’t hurt that they are such handsome and charming fellas!  I can’t wait to photograph these two grooms on their wedding day!

engagement photos with dogs

This sweet couple is getting married in a few weeks!  Here is Part 2 of their engagement session photos — they have the most adorable dogs and wanted to include them in their engagement photos so we brought them in for the second half of the session and got these wonderful images!

They did an outfit change in the middle of the session, and we met Suzie’s dad who was so kind to watch them while we were shooting.  We even got a few photos of the fur babies with their loving and doting “grandpa”!  I have two fur-children of my own and they definitely are a part of my family so I understood how much it meant to Suzie and Robbie to have their sweet dogs in their photos.  :) I love that we were able to capture them both and their little family of four at this stage in their lives.  Their pups are the cutest things and it was so fun to have them participate.  It was probably the highlight of the session for me – I was so excited and could not stop petting them!
