Colorful La Jolla Engagement Session – |Ashley + Ryan|

I met Ryan a few years ago at a craft beer share at his home! He was very friendly to me every time we saw each other at a beer event. During that time, he met Ashley and fell in love. I knew I would like her immediately when I met her – they are a great match! Plus she’s from the Chicago area, which I love! They are getting married next year in Chicago and I cannot wait! Ashley is a botanist (so cool!) so greenery was important as a backdrop. We met at the Torrey Pines Hilton and explored their gorgeous garden area before heading down to the beach near their home! la-jolla-engagement-session-01 la-jolla-engagement-session-02 la-jolla-engagement-session-03 la-jolla-engagement-session-04 la-jolla-engagement-session-05 la-jolla-engagement-session-06 la-jolla-engagement-session-07 la-jolla-engagement-session-08 la-jolla-engagement-session-09 la-jolla-engagement-session-10 la-jolla-engagement-session-11 la-jolla-engagement-session-12 la-jolla-engagement-session-13 la-jolla-engagement-session-14 la-jolla-engagement-session-15

South Park Engagement – |Jessica + Ryan|

I had so much fun with Jessica + Ryan! We decided to do their session in their favorite neighborhood, South Park. They spent a lot of time here until Ryan had to move to the East Coast for work. He was in town for Comic Con so we made the shoot happen in a short amount of time! Jessica is the sister of one of my good friends so it was fun getting to know her in real life rather than seeing her through her sister’s Facebook! We laughed a ton, they prepped me for my first Comic Con experience, had some delicious chocolate and just had a blast.

La Jolla Engagement – |Kelly + Adam|

I was really excited to hang out with Kelly and Adam and explore a few new spots in La Jolla! Even though we didn’t find the elusive secret swings, we did find some killer views! And their pups joined us at the end of the shoot and were some of the most well behaved dogs I’ve photographed!

Los Angeles Engagement session – |Karina + Javier|

Karina found me after coming across my name looking for a caterer for her wedding. Since then she’s been my #1 fan. She is always so encouraging and kind. She and Javier met at work the rest is history. I drove up to LA – near where they live – to check out some spots that Karina had picked out. They were awesome! I’ve always wanted to shoot at the Walt Disney Concert Hall. We ended the session at sunset at the Santa Monica pier!

Long Beach Engagement Session – |Kelsey + Paul|

When I wanted to start in photography a wonderful woman named Michele took me under her wing. We became fast friends and she is still a very important part of my life. Little did I know that 10+ years later I’d be photographing her eldest daughters wedding! I’m so happy for Kelsey + Paul – they are super hilarious and adorable together. Just hanging around them put me in such a good mood. We headed to the spot where they met and lived in Long Beach. I love getting out of town and shooting in different spots!
