Esther and Jonathan, engagement shoot in and around Santa Monica

I know Esther was disappointed when we were kicked out of the Viceroy Hotel in Santa Monica. Who doesnt love there super fab modern and colorful decor. We did manage to discreetly snap a few iconic Viceroy images but what followed were some sweet and unexpected images around the streets of Santa Monica and some adorable pier shots. We still had a great time and they were good sports about the impromptu change. In the end it worked out fantastic and more variety than we could have planned for. Enjoy and HAPPY HAPPY wedding to you in less than 2 weeks.

Joanne and Marco rockin downtown LA Engagement photos

Joanne and Marco live downtown, are getting married downtown so of course when it comes to their engagement photos where else but … downtown LA, specifically in the neighborhood which I LOVED.

I shoot in downtown LA a lot. I love it, my clients love it we have fun it is hard not to have a good time.

I always try to push it to new areas and see new things but there are a few places that are just so damn good it is hard to give up. Union Station is one of those places, as long as people want to shoot there I want be there, so while you have seen some of this before sometimes good is just good. No excuses there.

Jennifer and Calvin. Disney Hall and Griffith Park Observatory engagement shoot

I have been wanting to shoot at Griffith Park Observatory for quite sometime. When Jennifer and Calvin mentioned they wanted to shoot at some locations and architecture that were specific to LA (Jennifer lives in San Francisco) we decided on The Disney Hall in Downtown LA and the Observatory. Well the Observatory is closed on Mondays, something we didnt realize but in the end I think it worked out better, way less crowds so explored the peripheral and found these great places to take in the view. 5 more weeks until the big day. See you soon.

Ed and Natalie (engagement) all over Downtown LA, Union Station and more!!!

What can I possibly say about this engagement shoot. Ed and Natalie are a couple after my own heart loving to explore downtown LA and duck into dive bars in the middle of the day just because. (all in the name of art of course) We had such a fun time I couldnt possible consider this work. The difficult part is now trying to narrow down the images to a reasonable amount. With so many beautiful shots forgive me if I go a littl bit crazy in my selections.

Cant wait until November to continue the Downtown theme at their wedding at the new Majestic Hall.

B & D and our downtown Los Angeles adventure. Engagment shoot

Beth Daniel and I started with one location idea and just went from there. Their first date was at the Disney Hall downtown so we new we end up there but until we did we would wonder the streets of downtown LA and just have fun and see what we came up with. We managed to hit the Bradbury building, Grand Central Market, Angels Flight and the the surrounding streets. Thanks for not thinking I was crazy when I asked you to run into dozens of pigeons feasting in a trash area. It was worth it! So glad we were able to do this I had a great time. This is just a sneak peak, I am nowhere near done.

Looking forward to your wedding it May.

Kelly and Daniel anniversary shoot at Santa Monica Pier

Part 2 of the super fun anniversary shoot at Santa Monica Pier. As I mentioned in my other post.  Stefanie and Daniel along with their good friends decided to celebrate their 5 year anniversary with a photo shoot. What a great idea. They were adorable and fun bringing along some balloons and a vintage suitcase. Hope to see you both again when you have babies to photograph.

Stefanie and Josh, Anniversary session at the Viceroy

Anniversary photos are the new engagement photos. What a better way to celebrate their 5 years of marriage with an anniversary photo shoot. I spent the afternoon with Stefanie and Josh and their BFF’s Kelly and Daniel at The Viceroy and Santa Monica beach. We had a blast shooting and I am not even finished but had to share these crazy cute images. Stay tuned for more with Kelly and Daniel. Jusyt a hint of what is to come think cotton candy and vintage suitcase.

Marissa and Phillipe, (sneak peak) engagment shoot

Sometimes my job is just sooo hard. Yesterday I HAD to go sailing with Marissa and Phillipe, enjoy wine and a toast at the California Yacht Club and then a sunset walk on the beach in Venice. It was a torturous day but as expected we have some great shots. I haven’t even made it through them all yet but I wanted to give Marissa a little sneak peak at how great they look so far.

BTW if it wasnt obvious this was written all tongue and cheek except for the part about the great photos

Alyssa and Dan Union Station engagment shoot

I will just go on record this is one of my favorite engagement shoots ever. Top 3 for sure. I had been wanting to shoot in Union Station for ages, I have shot weddings but wanted the freedom and casualness engagement shoots bring. Alyssa and Dan couldnt have more of a perfect couple for this. So easy and fun in front of the camera I will give half of the credit to them. They made my job so easy, I cant wait until their 4th of July wedding.
