That beautiful time between "Yes" and "I do. " Our favorite engagement sessions.
Happy Friday my dear readers – I hope this summer weekend is going to be a fabulous one! Well, I actually know it’s going to be fabulous because you have Bryan and Amy’s romantic engagement session to feed your appetite for gorgeousness all weekend long! You can thank me later for posting such stunning eye candy… Bryan
Bryan had a few ride tickets left and their friends had veered off to another part of the Del Mar Fair, so he steered Amy towards the ferris wheel. It was a romantic ride with the lights of the fair spread out below, and it would be the beginning of their love story. The journey
Here’s what I know about Andrew and Victoria: 1) They’re both wickedly smart and uber talented at what they do, and 2) they appreciate a well-crafted image.

Happy happy Friday everyone! To send you into this glorious summer weekend, we have the second half of Nick and Stephanie’s engagement session on the cliffs and beaches of La Jolla. These two are some of the cutest folks to step in front of a camera and their penchant for cuddling, laughing, and overall cuteness

A classy black dress with a great pair of heels + a tailored look with a charming smile + a golden day at Balboa Park = two waaaaaaaaay too excited photographers squealing with glee in a public place. Mark and Heidi wanted a classic San Diego look with a polished feel, and every single one of their
Driven, ambitious, brilliant, and ultra-nerdy. That about sums up any med student. Add witty and sensitive, and you’ve got Mark. Then tack on gorgeous and confident, and there’s a portrait of Heidi. So combine all of those wonderful words into one pool of perfection, and you have the sweetest, smartest, and loveliest couple you’ve ever met. Their confidence
This is one of those blog posts that I knew was going to be simply dynamite the moment I clicked the shutter. Jeff and I were in Portland this past weekend to photograph the lovely Garrett and Heather, and when Heather sent me images of the Vista House asking if it would be an option
They each had three strikes against them. A mutual family friend had been keeping an eye out for the perfect girl for Garrett, and when she met Heather, she knew she had found his match. But Heather refused to meet Garrett and she had her reasons – she doesn’t date long distance, she doesn’t date
