SANTA BARBARA COURTHOUSE

Santa Barbara, California

Sabrina & Abel choose the beautiful Santa Barbara Courthouse and surrounding Santa Barbara beaches for their engagement photography session. Anyone who knows Sabrina knows that she loves to laugh. We have had the honor of meeting her family in San Jose when we shot her sister Veronica’s wedding not too long ago. Sabrina, like her sister, has the most amazing smile that will light up any room when she is present. We are so thankful that Abel and Sabrina had chosen us to be their Engagement Photographers and we look forward to their upcoming wedding. A special thanks to Marina Beltran for assisting us in this shoot.

PASADENA CITY HALL

Pasadena, California

This was such a fun little shoot. These couples all have been married for decades and it is truly inspiring to see this love still in existence today. We believe this shoot to be an inspiration to all our soon to be bride and grooms this year and the next to see these celebrated love stories still fresh. Look at the expressions of these couples. It was truly an honor to shoot. Thank you all for your time on this group couples session.

LA UNION STATION

Downtown Los Angeles, California

Engagement sessions at the LA Union Station are always a treat for photographers.  The historic and vintage look make the place look and feel very romantic.  We were very excited and happy to shoot Jose and Stephanie’s engagement photos at the LA Union Station.  Their stylish outfits and the romance between them made this one very easy shoot.  We’re very certain the wedding day will be no different.  Looking forward to shooting your upcoming wedding!  :)

ALMANSOR COURT

Alhambra, California

Roberto & Ariana shared a beautiful wedding with their family and friends at The Almansor Court in Alhambra, California.  The highlight of their wedding was definitely their performance of the Grease song,  ”You’re the One That I Want”.  It wasn’t only entertaining, but really brought out their personalities and how much they love each other.  Thanks to their great sense of humor, we were able to get some really great dancing shots.  We hope you had a blast on  your wedding day and that you’re able to relive that unforgettable day through our images.  :)

Downtown Riverside always provides a variety of beautiful areas for engagement sessions or wedding photography.  For Andy & Noemi’s session, we started shooting at an abandoned warehouse next to the Riverside Amtrak Station and moved ourselves into Downtown Riverside.  We hope you both enjoyed your engagement session the way that we did.  :)

LOS ANGELES COUNTY MUSEUM OF ARTS (LACMA)

Los Angeles, California

We were very excited to shoot Joel & Jannessie’s anniversary photos.  What made it so flattering was that they had been searching for a photographer that met their standards and that would stand out from the rest.  When they were referred to us by one of their friends and saw our work, they immediately knew we were the photographers they were searching for.  They drove almost three hours from Bakersfield to Los Angeles just to have their photographs taken by us.  Matt and I really appreciate you putting all of your trust in us to capture the love and beautiful relationship that exists between the both of you.  We wish you many beautiful and happy anniversaries. :)

PASADENA CITY HALL

Pasadena, California

David and Michelle wanted one of their engagement session locations to be something unique and different.  They couldn’t have chosen a better place than Rocket Fizz Soda Pop and Candy Shop for their engagement photos.  Walking in there takes everybody back to their childhood years.  It was all giggles with this lovely couple throughout the entire engagement session.  With such bubbly personalities, it made our time with them so pleasant.  We’ll see you two on your wedding day!! :)

EAGLE CASTLE WINERY

Paso Robles, California

It was such a pleasure shooting Anthony & Aimee’s wedding in Paso Robles, California. They chose Eagle Castle Winery as their wedding venue, which was such a pleasurable place to shoot. This Castle overlooked the beautiful Paso Robles area. This wedding was full of love, happiness, and tender moments. We quickly became attached to the persons present at this intimate winery wedding. The guys were so much fun, and absolutely awesome!  We wish you such a happy life in your new home in the United Kingdom. Thank you both for allowing us to shoot your wedding in beautiful Paso Robles, California. Listening to the speeches, and the obvious concern for family and friends to let Aimee go to the UK, it was truly such a heartwarming experience. Such beautiful personalities are hard to come by these days. Anthony and Aimee, we hope you love the teaser, and please just give us an excuse to get out to London to see you guys once again. Matt and I wish you infinite years of happiness!

THOUSAND STEPS BEACH, LAGUNA BEACH, CALIFORNIA

When Rene & Jocie told us they wanted to take their photos in Thousand Steps Beach, we knew exactly what we were in for.  It’s a GORGEOUS secluded beach in Laguna Beach.  It’s like a hidden gem.  However, there’s a catch to it.  The only way to get there is by going down some 227 steps.  Doesn’t sound like much right?  Try telling yourself that once you’ve climbed back up to the top.  That’s when you’ll know WHY they call it “Thousand Steps Beach”!  Though the day was cloudy and a little cold, Rene & Jocie were such wonderful sports.  As if it weren’t cold enough, and as it usually happens when we shoot at the beach, our lovely couple ended up wet and full of sand by the end of the session.  Thank you so much you two for being so cool and cooperative.  We had a very nice time shooting your engagement photos.  :)

CALIFORNIA PLAZA, DOWNTOWN LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA

When Lupe told me her and Marco wanted their engagement photos taken at the California Plaza Water Court, we were SOOOO excited!!  It took us forever to figure out where this waterfall was.  We knew it was in Downtown Los Angeles, but didn’t know exactly where it was.  We were confident that we could come up with some very unique and different images than the ones we’ve seen taken at this location.  It’s always so much fun shooting in Downtown LA.  Usually we shoot for 2 to 3 hours, but we lost track of time and ended up shooting well over 4 hours!  We either lost track of time or got a little camera happy.  Probably a little bit of both lol  Thank you Marco and Lupe for being such good sports and pulling through the entire session.  We’re very excited to shoot your upcoming wedding!!  :)

ORCUTT RANCH, WEST HILLS, CALIFORNIA

Juan & Marion had a beautiful outdoor wedding at Orcutt Ranch in San Fernando Valley.  It was without a doubt, a very joyous day for them.  Juan & Marion would no longer be separated by the 5,000 miles that stood between them.  You should have seen them on the day of their Engagement Session.  It was as if they never wanted to let go of each other.  Giggles and smiles throughout the entire session.  Marion flew to California from France, we want to say about two years ago, for an internship.  Never did she imagine that she would meet her prince charming 5,000 miles away from home.  How did they meet?  Through a group of friends that would get together to practice salsa dancing.  They started talking, dancing, and the rest is history!  :)  Thank you for choosing us as your wedding photographers.  It was a pleasure being able to witness the unity of two people so much in love.  Best wishes to the both of you!!

Special thanks to Derrick Yazzie for assisting as a second photographer for this wedding.  :)

One of the things that makes our job so rewarding is working with couples such as Vito & Kayane.  They have been such a pleasure to work with.  From the very first day we met them for their Engagement Session, they made us feel like we were close friends.  Vito & Kayane are full of energy and there’s always laughter when they’re around.  When you talk about two people being head over heels in love with each other, well Vito & Kayane are no exception.  The way they look at each other says it all.  Shooting their wedding was full of surprises.  The wedding reception took place at the elegant Anoush Banquet Hall.  The food (mediterranean) was AMAZING!!!  We’re not exaggerating when we say it was amazing.  Not only that but there was SO much food!  And boy do they know how to party!  Vito & Kayane, it was quite an experience being able to shoot your wedding.  Thank you for trusting us with one of the most memorable events in your life.  :)
