Yay, it's Friday! That usually means it's weekend work time, but tomorrow I actually have the day off for my and Josh's 12 year 'together' anniversary! Jeez that makes me feel kinda old :)
Anyway, I thought I'd share one of my recent engagement sessions today. Bret and Meg wanted their engagement session to be casual and fun... just like them. Shooting at the circle was a no brainer since they spend a lot of time together there. Then we headed out to a nearby park so their super cute dog could get in on the action : )
Bret always has a laugh ready...
How beautiful is Meg's hair and makeup? I love it!
We found some random chalk hearts in an alley :)
My favorite of the day! Tree shadows are sooooo pretty!
Over by their favorite bar, Paul's :)
Quick outfit and location change!
Here's Darcy... she is such a sweet and well behaved dog. She makes it seem worth it to get one even though I have terrible allergies.
I love Meg's dress! She said she got it at JCPenny.... who knew?!
Looks like a Christmas card!
Darcy needed a close up too :)
Thanks for looking! Have a great weekend!!!
I pretty much love these two. 'Nuff said.
Tiffany and Joe made these awesome letters... as you could probably guess, they're big fans of wine :)
Seriously?! They're adorable.
They're both architects so they decided to shoot at the Orange Circle with all the gorgeous buildings and brick textures.
Can I marry this wall? It's awesome.
How did I never notice this wall said architects?! How perfect is it for them?
After we shot at The Circle for a while we headed over to Irvine Park for some softer photos...
I love a good silly collage...
This light! Amazing.
Fall leaves are finally here!
These next photos have props from one of their favorite songs. It's about an old Chinese proverb that talks about what it takes to be happy in life: a wheel, a clock, a radio, and string.
And that's all she wrote! Thanks for looking!
These two are seriously awesome.
They met in High School so what better place to shoot some engagement photos than on campus?
They both played the sax in high school :) We were super lucky to be able to sneak into the band room for a few photos.
Seriously... they're so cute!
After the school photos were done we headed over to a nearby park for some more romantic photos... Becky is a super planner and had a ton of perfect props lined up :)
Scrabble is a favorite of theirs...
The light at this park was just perfect!
I seriously can't wait to see all the amazing DIY details at the wedding. Becky has been a crafting machine!
And we'll end with my favorites of the day... I love silliness :)
As always, thanks for looking!
Brittany and Brandon are getting married in Yosemite next month and to say I'm excited would be an understatement! Just look at how awesome these two are:
We decided to shoot at the Griffith Observatory since they're from Los Angeles, but we had to stop off at Griffith Park first...
I love the way she is looking at him right here:
The light was aaaaamazing. But man, was it hot outside! I really have to give them credit for being such good sports even though it was so miserable in the sun.
I always love it when I get to play with off camera flash in during the day... it gives such a crisp, bright feel to the photos.
We were super lucky to have such a clear day... the view of the city was amazing!
I love their smiles in this one:
My two favorites of the day... did I mention how much I love playing with flash during the day? Thanks for letting me play around with it guys!
Gorgeous sunset + gorgeous couple
One last stop down some random street for some urban flair:
Aaaaand we're done :) Thanks for looking!
Hello! Happy Thursday!
Today I thought I'd share a sweet little engagement session I did in Pasadena a couple weeks ago.
Mike and Marissa are an amazing, laid back couple with an adorable new house and a perfect dog named Mia. Since Pasadena is where they've decided to start their married life together it was a perfect location for their engagement shoot. We started in their beautiful backyard:
They've put a lot of work into their new home and it is sooooo pretty. I hope to have a backyard just like this when I grow up :)
Mia was a pretty great model...
Next we headed over to Pasadena City Hall to take advantage of the gorgeous architecture.
I love this high ceiling!
Marissa... you're sooooo pretty!
My favorite of the day:
Her ring is so unique... I love the band...
This next photo took some serious teamwork, but they got it :)
And lastly, we had to get a photo of City Hall all lit up...
Thanks!!! Have a great week!
