Sonia & Kenny- Dreams Do Come True- New York Fall Engagement Photos- Central Park & Brooklyn

NYC, New York Fall Engagement Photos, Brooklyn, Central Park
I love New York.
So much so that one time my friend and I opted for a 24 hour layover there “on the way” to Aruba. If geography is not your strong suit, like me, New York is not even a little bit “on the way” from Los Angles to Aruba. But nonetheless, we managed to see two shows in 24 hours. Now that’s commitment!
I’ve always thought it would be fun to do an engagement session in Central Park. So when I found myself with the opportunity to do just that, IN THE FALL!…..I kinda freaked.
Sonia and Kenny were born on opposite coasts. Sonia’s from NorCal, Kenny, from New York. They met in New York, but their April wedding will be in NorCal. So their engagement session HAD to be in New York! We spent all day roaming around the city, soaking in as much fall as we could! Even getting some pumpkin soup! Yum! I had such a great time with both of them. I can’t wait till April!

It’s been over thirteen years since I’ve seen Sarah. It was at our 10 year high school reunion. She looked the same as the day we graduated. She still does. So how is it possible that she has a kid that will be going to college next year??? Crazy! But I’m so thankful that my camera, along with social media, allows me to reconnect with old friends…. and by old I mean long-time! 🙂

I first met Griselda and Humberto over 6 years ago, when I photographed their amazing wedding. Now, three kids later, they are just the cutest little family. And I always love that Griselda is always up for something different when it comes to their photos. I’ll never forget when we were doing their wedding photos, we walked down a particular alley and she said, “Oh I love the brick and the bars on the windows!” To which I promptly replied, “I love you Griselda.”

Annie & Bryant- Maravilla Gardens Wedding- Camarillo, CA

Maravilla Gardens Wedding, Camarillo Wedding 001.JPG

If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you’ve seen me post weddings from Maravilla Gardens. And if you’ve read my posts you’ve heard me go on and one about this place. About how it’s magical and the light is incredible… yada yada yada! Well it’s still true. This place does not disappoint. And neither do my clients who get married there.

Annie and Bryant are just wonderful to be around. More than anything they just wanted their day to be laid back and to enjoy celebrating with their family and friends. Well that’s exactly what this day was like. Perfectly relaxed and anything BUT stuffy. Annie wore a simple, tailored dress from BHLDN, while Bryant kept it relaxed by nixing the tie altogether. A family member officiated the wedding and they opted for a donut and popcorn bar, rather than a traditional cake. Tessa with Prism DJ’s had just the right tunes to keep everyone on the dance floor. And boy did they dance!

We had so much fun with everyone that day!

Sean & Sofia- Downtown Los Angeles, Walt Disney Concert Hall Engagement Photos

2016-12-27_0044.jpg

Sean & Sofia were planning a wedding in Singapore, but they wanted to have their engagement photos done in the city they plan to live in. You never have to twist my arm to do a shoot in Los Angeles. There are just so many cool places to go and so many even more unique backgrounds. The Disney Concert Hall provides so many different looks without even having to leave the premises!

Robert & Emily- Fullerton, CA

2016-12-27_0019.jpg2016-12-27_0056
It’s always fun when I get to photograph a wedding of two people that I know. But to get to photograph Robert & Emily’s wedding, after watching them throughout their dating relationship, was such a joy. I was so happy to be there to watch them unite their lives together. And to have it be just down the street for my house… well that’s even better!

This fall has been a busy one! I have had the opportunity of photographing some wonderful families this year, some old friends and some new. When I heard that this family had 7 month old twins, I thought, “Oh Lord bless you!!!” These little girls were just so adorable. And isn’t their hair the cutest??? I had so much fun with them.

Paige & Don- Bowers Museum Wedding_ Santa Ana, CA

2016-09-06_0020.jpg

This wedding has so many beautiful details. Start of with the sweetest bride and groom who are so excited to be getting married after knowing each other for 10 years. Add a gorgeous dress and awesome venue like the Bowers Museum. Then mix it all up with the magic that Willow & Wine bring. You’ve got the recipe for a the most perfect of wedding days!

You might recognize Paige & Don from their engagement session. Paige and I have known each other since college. Even lived on the same hall our freshman year. So I was beyond thrilled when Paige asked me to photograph their wedding. Her Kitty Chen dress from Marry Me Bridal was amazing! That lace! That beading!

But can we talk about this bathroom? That tub! I mean.

Paige’s Grandmother passed away recently, but I know she must have been so proud of her granddaughter.

Stephanie & Brandon- Orange County Maternity Photography

2016-09-06_0009.jpg
Six years ago Stephanie & Brandon sat on my little couch in my client meeting room. We talked for a long time and laughed a TON about awesome costume parties. I just remember thinking how I wanted to go to one of their parties! I had the opportunity to photograph them at their wedding (awesome party!). From bringing a motorcycle to their engagement session, to rocking a short dress on her wedding day, they have always proven to be a sassy couple. And now Stephanie is a sassy mama! Check out her maternnity session.
