I am always a sucker for listening to couples’ stories on how they met, who initiated, and how they popped the big question. In the case of Lisa and Clint, they were friends since high school; each had their own lives and direction. It was not until after graduation, Clint built the courage to ask Lisa out on a date. Since then, their lives unfolded a beautiful story consisting of food, adventures, a chubby English bulldog, and eventually a cute house. Clint was a total gentleman and the love for each other radiated through the simplest of gestures.
In the midst of all the wedding photography business, it is always nice to enjoy a leisure photo shoot outside of weddings. With a weekend off, my dear friend, Luxi, and I decided to grab a bite to eat and fire off a few shots here in Chinatown Los Angeles. No pressure, no direction, no expectations…just pure improv for kicks. Instead of going to the popular areas of LA, we trekked into deep forgotten alleys of Chinatown to shed some beauty in the darkness. Check them out!
I am always a sucker for small intimate weddings. Do not get me wrong, huge weddings and festivals are also great too! As for this next wedding adventure, we ventured off on the top of Malibu canyons at Malibu Rocky Oaks Winery and overlooked the entire valley! Talk about a grand view and standing amoungst the clouds for a grand and intimate wedding. Before Erika and Greg tied their knot at beautiful Rocky Oaks Winery, everyone prepped up at Casa Del Mar in Santa Monica. Erika and her ladies shared the morning together with plenty of sweets, chocolates, and a splash of sea breeze that rolled into their suite while they had their makeup done on point while Greg and the boys suited up nicely at Rocky Oaks Winery.
There is always a soft spot in my heart when I hear stories of couples’s adventures together and how they have met; sweet stuff that can give you cavities. In this case. Allison and Jimmy have been a pair for about a decade before finally getting hitched. Imagine all the awesome adventures these two have experienced prior to entering the next chapter of their lives. One of their favorite past time is camping and snowboarding. What better way to have a meaningful engagement photography session than to combine the stuff that they like into their photos, right?!
Good evening everyone,
In this whole wedding business, I run into so many happy and interesting people. Of the many weddings I have photographed, there is the memorable handful of weddings or people at these weddings that completely changes your life. Of all the life changing events, this has to be the one that tops it all. To give a quick overview of Tiffany and Mike, these two were high school buddies and started their lives together after college with one amazing adventure after another. Fortunately enough, they included me into the mix shortly after their wedding was over and we have been chasing the horizon ever since from rock climbing, bungee jumping, camping, and a bunch of races! Without going off too far on this tangent, I present one of Tiffany and Mike’s sweetest adventures at Serendipity Gardens.
