North Park and Balboa Park Engagement – {Stephanie + Sean}

Stephanie + Sean hired me so long ago, their engagement session was a great excuse to catch up and see how planning is going! Plus I’m never going to turn down meeting at a brewery for photos! 😉 StephanieSean_Engagement_001

Coronado Engagement Photos – {Courtney + Jeremy}

Jeremy and I go way back. We met years ago and kept in touch via social media over the years. I saw a pretty new woman come in to his life and I was thrilled for him. Last September he contacted me about photographing his proposal but sadly I was out of the country. I couldn’t have been happier when they asked me to be their wedding photographer! I met Courtney for the first time at this session and I could instantly see what Jeremy saw in her. They were so giddy and lovey together! We had a blast telling dirty jokes (ok maybe just mine were dirty) and talking about trashy reality TV shows!

Los Penasquitos Canyon Engagement – {Ali + Zach}

Ali is the cousin of a friend and awesome local coordinator and I was so excited when she contacted me about engagement photos! They were looking for something with trees and nature and we decided on Los Penasquitos Canyon. It was a gorgeous morning with some cloud cover that set the mood for their romantic portraits!  AliZach_Engagement_003 AliZach_Engagement_010 AliZach_Engagement_015 AliZach_Engagement_017 AliZach_Engagement_020 AliZach_Engagement_022 AliZach_Engagement_028 AliZach_Engagement_038 AliZach_Engagement_047 AliZach_Engagement_053 AliZach_Engagement_054 AliZach_Engagement_060 AliZach_Engagement_072 AliZach_Engagement_074 AliZach_Engagement_081 AliZach_Engagement_084 AliZach_Engagement_090 AliZach_Engagement_099 AliZach_Engagement_103

Pacific Beach Proposal – {Christina + Nate}

I love love love shooting proposals! An unsuspecting girlfriend, a planner boyfriend – soon to be fiance. It’s such a happy moment and I adore capturing the memory for the couple!

Nate contacted me a few days before it all went down. He was planning to propose to his girlfriend of 8 years, Christina. They were celebrating their anniversary by staying at Tower 23 hotel in Pacific Beach. He wanted to propose over dessert at the amazing restaurant JRDN. I recruited my assistant Katrina to be my date at the restaurant. We showed up a few minutes before the couple and sat down for a beer to wait. We spied on them through the windows, they were seated outside (in the cold!) and we were inside. We were in-cahoots with their waitress (and the rest of the amazing staff of JRDN) and they sat us as Nate + Christina were finishing their entrees. We pretended to browse the menu while I had my camera on my lap ready to go! I saw the dessert coming out and knew it was showtime!

Christina first saw the dessert plate which stated Nate’s intention. She was shocked. Truly shocked. And I kept clicking. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a man as happy as Nate in that exact moment. It was amazing. After they finished dessert, we headed to the beach for a few engagement style photos of the newly engaged!

Los Angeles Engagement Photos – {Jeff + Alex}

I was so excited when Jeff contacted me about his wedding. I had photographed his sisters wedding a few years prior and fell in love with the family! I was thrilled to meet Alex as well. They just mesh so well together. We shot their engagement session in areas they like to frequent near their LA home. It was fun, a new location for me, I had never been to Abbot Kinney or Santa Monica Pier! And of course their absolutely adorable Toby joined us for some photos. Isn’t he the cutest thing ever?!
