It has been a long time coming for these two love birds to tie the knot! Darelene and Ted have shared one epic adventure after another prior to their engagement photography session and now they are prepared to take their chapter to another level. With eight years in the making, these two had a great history together from traveling the globe, let loose at music festivals, and indulge in life in general. Through the highs and lows, Darlene and Ted managed to build their relationship stronger through every experience.
Starbucks Lovers | Sophia & HawkFebruary 19, 2017
From Starbucks cups to Spartan races, this pair of dynamic duo love to battle things out as a team. Sophia and Hawk first ignited their flame over a Starbucks where Sophia worked as a barista and Hawk as a patron. With each coffee date, their bonds grew stronger and took their relationship to the next level – Spartan races. These two love to push themselves to their physical and mental limit at these races. I have done the trifecta once, but these two prefer to do it as an annual thing. Sophia may be small, but her hugs alone squeezed the air out of my lungs once. Enough of going off on a tangent, we started off their engagement photo session bright and early in Downtown Los Angeles before the rest of the city woke up. With an empty city and our two love birds suited and gowned up, we cranked out a series of creatively sweet engagement photos. Check it out!
Jet Setters | Yanni & JustinFebruary 6, 2017
If there is an achievement unlock for jet setters, I think this couple may have gotten it! Yanni and Justin are a cute pair that dated long distance for some time before settling in together in Santa Barbara, then eventually to Los Angeles. During their time physically apart, Yanni worked in law overseas in Hong Kong while Justin stayed in Santa Barbara during his residency at a hospital. Despite being separated by the Pacific, they kept their fire strong throughout their journey before they took their relationship to the next chapter!
Sunday Fun Day |Tammy & ThomasJanuary 28, 2017
Happy Lunar New Year everyone! Let us welcome the year of the rooster.
For my next post, if you are reading this Tammy, sorry for these late postings; I swear that I am catching up as quickly as possible!
It was a beautiful fall season as the autumn colors painted the trees in beautiful SoCal where one of my favorite pairs, Tammy and Thomas, enjoyed our next adventure at Descanso Gardens. We found amazing backgrounds for photos with each twist, turn, and bend during our trek down the trails. From what I recall, it was either before or right after Halloween so there were pumpkins ALL over the gardens. Either way, it added a little extra character during our photo shoot. Check out the following highlights below!
Chain Gang | Wenji & RommelMay 17, 2016
It has been a few years since I hung out with these two goofballs for their engagement photography session in Pasadena, yet that day was still rather memorable and filled with one hilarious joke after another. Wenji and Rommel flew in from the Big Apple to bask in our California sun, visit some family, and reserved one day to play around while we snapped some photos away. Since this was their hometown, taking their engagement photos here is rather meaningful. To start off, we ran around the alley ways in Old Town Pasadena and took pictures with anything that had color to compliment their playful personalities. Since these two are fans of biking around, the local bike shop nearby were generous enough to lend us a couple Schwinn bikes to cruise around this fair old town.
