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!
Joey and Katy are getting married! Here are a few of my very favorites from their awesome engagement session... thanks for looking :)
We started off at Irvine Park to play in the trees and catch some pretty light...
Katy, you're going to make a gorgeous bride!
Then we headed down to Balboa to hunt for some more urban backdrops... I love brick and concrete :)
They are so sweet together...
The light at the beach was absolutely amazing...
One of my favorites of the day! Summer sunsets at the beach are so beautiful.
My other favorite! Cuddly photos are the best!
Thanks again for looking!
Seeing a couple go from engaged, to married, to parenthood is the best part of my job! Meet baby Lexi, Jen and Larry's gorgeous little lady:
Smooshy lips are so cute!
The family :)
That's it for now! Thanks sooooo much for looking!
Bethany and Kevin's wedding was a perfect celebration of their personalities: fun, relaxed, and full of love. From their first glimpse of one another to the dance party at the end of the night you could see how excited they were about being married. It was the kind of wedding I would be happy to photograph every weekend :)
The beautiful bride...
I loved this moment!!!! Kevin was SO excited to see Bethany!
I loooooove Bethany's hair... simple and elegant :)
The love the secret garden look of the French Estate in Orange.
Loved her shoes!!
The flower girl and the ring bearer were beyond adorable...
Husband and wife!
The details were simple and sweet...
First dance :)
Have I ever mentioned that the speeches are my favorite part about weddings? I love getting to know my bride and groom from the perspective of their favorite people ever :)
After dinner we snuck off for a few more photos in the gorgeous light.
Bethany! You're so pretty :)
And last, but not least, the dance party!

Hello! I hope everyone is having a great week so far! Today I thought I'd share a handful of my favorite photos from Michael and April's wedding from last month.
It was an awesome day that started with a gorgeous pair of shoes and a stunning dress:
And, of course, a perfect bride:
The final touches...
One of my favorites of the day... I love all the teamwork that goes into getting a bride dressed :)
I loooooooove window light!
You may now kiss your bride...
Both April and Michael are huge baseball fans (Angel fans, to be exact) so we they wanted to bring bats along for some photos.
I love the way April is looking at Michael in this next one:
I love rings shots!!
