I love to find new nooks and spaces in downtown for photos. Molly and Joe had a blast walking around, stopping in an arcade, hanging with their pup and watching the sunset through the downtown streets.

I love a great alley way and who knew that just behind all of the corporate stores on Colorado in Pasadena would be some great brick alleyways for us to play around with. Had a great time with Long and Becky and since I am posting this late they have already had a super fab wedding at Serra Plaza and also found here.
I have long been meaning to write something like this since I do get asked this quite a bit.
What should we wear for our engagement session?
My former bride, now friend and awesome wedding blogger Chandra just wrote this handy article. So now I dont need to . Check it out. I think it is great advice
Kymberly and Morten are getting married in his hometown in Denmark. Oh how I wish I was going to be there for their big day. Please please. But to show their adopted hometown of Los Angeles we went for the urban theme and headed to downtown LA. Everyone knows I love a brick wall!! Starting off at the gorgeous Union Station and hitting the street and ending up at a park near Chinatown for the sun setting. BEAUTIFUL! some of my favorite shots. Congratulations Kym and Morten.
I love (and encourage) an engagement shoot to be at a place that is meaningful to the couple. It makes it so much more personal and fun. Sarah grew up in Pasadena, her and Scott live there, he proposed on a neighborhood walk at the Tournament of Roses. And their wedding? where else but Pasadena as well. So of course we hung out in their hood went to the places they love, walked near and on the Colorado bridge and snapped photos as we got to know each other. I think this makes even more special to them. Congratulations Sarah and Scott. Looking forward to being at your wedding.
HHow thrilled was I to have the chance to shoot Tim and Gaby’s engagement photos on Camp Pendelton. Their relationship started while Tim was in the Marines and stationed there. Gaby drove back and forth between LA and San Diego like only young love would do. Now 8 years later they are engaged and every bit as in love. I loved my tour of the base and we had so much fun shooting there amongst the tanks, obstacle course and open rolling hills. Of course Camp Pendelton is on the ocean so we ended our day at sunset on the beach. Sweetest couple ever. I had a blast and hope they love the photos as much as I do
A sweet December engagement shoot with Hannah and Eric. They turned me on to this great spot in East LA. They had originally wanted Heritage Square Park for their wedding but it didnt meet their needs. Next best thing we got to shoot their engagement pics there. How fun. Cant wait to see you guys again in April
