The place he proposed. The spot of the first kiss. Places that tell our couples' love stories.
Somehow, this first week of March just keeps getting better and better, and Dana and Aditya’s engagement session at Torrey Pines is no exception. The sunset fell softly, the water became turquoise, and Aditya and Dana kept getting cuter as the afternoon drew to a peaceful close. I can never quite say enough how much
They met at the very beginning of med school when the brilliant and quiet Aditya saw this outgoing, social girl with a huge smile from across the room. Dana had a big laugh for such a small frame, and bright clear eyes with plenty of spunk behind them. Together, they earned their degrees and moved
I *heart* Los Angeles and I turn into a giddy ball of energy shooting at places like the Griffith Observatory – especially with sweet and cute couples like Nate and Susan. We couldn’t stop ourselves from running around and shooting everything we possibly could on such a gorgeous day! I’m so excited to share this
Susan passed a note to Nate in 8th grade stating that she loved him. Nate returned Susan’s note and said he didn’t love her back – he loved a flute player instead. Their paths would not cross again until they left their small town in northwest Indiana to be educated on separated coasts and enrolled
Perfect locations like this only come along every so often, so when we get an amazing couple like Jimmy and Vivian, we immediately know where we have to shoot. The Torrey Pines Gliderport is one of those places that calms our hearts when we need to get away from it all, so we’ve spent many
Welcome back to Part Two of Stefan and Ivette’s classic engagement session at UCLA where Jeff and I felt like two-year-olds in a giant bounce house – too excited to be considered healthy. As you already know from Part One, Stefan and Ivette define gorgeous. In fact, I’m pretty sure their pictures are listed in the dictionary
They were accepted to the same school, studied in the same program, and attended the same classes. They strolled along the same sidewalks and walked past the same buildings on their way to the same library. But Stefan never met the gorgeous Ivette because they were a few years apart. It was as if their stories
Somehow, our couples always amaze us with their unbelievable style, taste, intellect, and depth. I could sit and talk art, food, and travel with Alan and Annette for hours but I had to control myself so we could actually take pictures! I love that Annette picked a dress with rich color and that Alan picked
It all started when he became the new “Bob.” A coworker in Annette’s office had recently left, and Alan took his place, and when Annette saw Alan she thought it wasn’t too shabby of a replacement. It wasn’t too much later when they had to work together on a project, and they instantly bonded over
Jeff and I have been shooting from rooftops quite a bit lately and today we get to feature Jason and Carissa’s engagement session on top of the St. James Hotel! I love when a couple chooses a location for their engagement session that is both beautiful AND meaningful. The rooftop of the St. James Hotel
