Happy Thursday everyone! This past weekend, I was given the honor and privilege to photograph the engagement session of good friends Michelle and Shannon for their upcoming wedding in less than two weeks! Yup, less than two weeks from now, we’ll be having even more fun photographing their big day! But before that, we were able to sit back, relax a bit, take our time, and photograph at the historic Pico House building in downtown Los Angeles, by Olvera Street. The Pico house itself has been around for over 100+ years and it was so cool to be able to photograph there, in the essentially empty building. We were given special permission to use the building’s inner courtyard for our shoot, and it turned out to be a fantastic session. I was LITERALLY giddy the entire time! Plus, Michelle and Shannon are two of the cutest people you’ll ever meet, and boy can that Michelle rock a photo session! Seriously! Love it when my brides to be are just so free and comfortable in front of a camera. Shannon was a rock star too, but let’s face it, the women tend to rock more than the men. Just saying!
The surrounding areas next to the Pico House are also very picturesque as well, and afterwards, we took a few photos in front of the Chinese American Museum (CAM). Shannon and Michelle have an affiliation with the museum, and because of them, we were able to photograph at the Pico House, so why not photograph the CAM as well? Plus, the brick building and the light we were getting were spectacular!
I had so much fun on this shoot, and want to thank Michelle and Shannon for being such great models for the day. Loved what they did! A big thanks to CAM and Pico House as well for letting us photograph in and around the building. What a beautiful venue!
And now, here is a sampling of our work from Saturday. Enjoy!
Love this series!
Their wedding day shoes are going to rock even harder than these! So dapper though!
A quiet moment
Thanks again you two So excited for your big day!
Thanks to everyone for stopping by See you next time!
Hi everyone! I’m back! Well, I’ve been back, but after getting back from Hawaii, I had a few gigs to tend to, and then I got sick Be sure to wash your hands often! Now that I’m back to 100% health, I’m happy to be posting up this new entry of one of my recent engagement sessions.
Jill and Aaron are my latest wedding clients, with their wedding happening in early January. I originally met Aaron in a class he was teaching for the improv group I belong to (Cold Tofu). He’s a super talented guy with incredible wit, and just plain cool! When I found out that that he was getting married, I got to meet his lovely and equally cool fiance Jill, and from that point on, I knew that photographing their wedding would have to be a blast! Cause these two definitely are!!!
They chose the Giffith Park outdoor train museum as the backdrop for this shoot, and quite frankly it was loads of fun photographing this really sweet couple What I love most about them is their willingness to laugh, play, be silly, and just have a great time – AND do that in the middle of their engagement shoot.
I couldn’t be more happy to be photographing their wedding. These guys are just so fun and easy to work with. Plus, as noted, they were willing to try anything!
Can’t tell you enough how great a time I had with these two, and can’t thank them enough for letting me be their photographer for their big day! So here are our results, complete with funny faces, sweet moments, and an homage to the “damsel in distress tied to the railroad tracks” old movie scene. Thanks again guys!
As usual, thank you so much for stopping by Stay HEALTHY and see you next week!
Okay, I admit, I’ve gone M.I.A. the past two weeks My apologies. Once again, the AT&T internet failure bug hit our home which had me without internet over the July 4th holiday, and a small heat wave had me melting all over my office space – yuck! Thank goodness everything is back to “normal” and I am once again here to bring you some of my latest fun work!
This week’s post is about the engagement session (E-session) of one of my bestest friends and her equally awesome fiance, Blythe and John. I’ve known Blythe now for about 8 years, ever since we performed together in a little ditty over at East West Players years ago (“Imelda – A New Musical), and ever since we’ve been really great friends. I’ve photographed Blythe before on numerous occasions, and even bragged about how dancers make the best models (they certainly do!). You can even find some of our work in the pages of this blog.
When Blythe found Mr. Uber-Awesome Right, I was thrilled when she asked me to photograph her big day, happening later this year in an undisclosed secret tropical location ;p In preparation for that day, we scheduled what started off as an overcast day to photograph them, which later turned into some great light, and some fun times; then again, I always make sure my photo sessions are fun, and we definitely had a lot of that that day
So here are a few of the images we created. You can clearly see how in love these two are, and what a beautiful couple they are! Seriously! Model quality through and through. I am definitely spoiled when it comes to everyone I photograph, EVERYONE.
Enjoy the photos
I love Blythe’s expressions here over John’s beach find.
OF COURSE we’re going to do the “Titanic” bow scene, come on!
Cool finds on the beach. A rusted old tool box.
I specially ordered the plane in this photo. Cost an arm and a leg, but well worth it.
I really can’t wait to get to their wedding in the fall. It was so fun to photograph these two, and further reiterate why I love what I do. Thanks for stopping by, and definitely see you next time! Have a great week everyone!
Happy Tuesday everyone! I am so excited to share with you all this past weekend’s engagment-session taken at “the most joyous location on the planet “. (Due to certain copyright issues, I can’t really say where these were taken, but let’s say that a lot of people go there and it’s fun. ‘Nuff said!)
