Hello Tuesday! I hope everyone is off a great start on this week. Today I want to share a super sweet couple + their darling 4 legged fur baby (I can totally relate!) at one of my fav places in San Diego – Balboa Park! Eddie and Melanie are high school sweethearts who have gone through all kinds of life’s adventures and trials together. As I spy from behind my camera (Sorry guys! You’ve asked for it!), I can see in their demeanor the utmost love, care and respect they have for each other. It’s amazing to witness an ever lasting relationship like this and I am so honored to be the one capturing it! Also, by the looks of how spoiled Hiro is, I’d say they are definitely well on their way to start a perfect little family :).
Last weekend before heading to a weekend of adventures – white water rafting on Kern River in Bakersfield – we thought, why not throw in an engagement shoot if Joce and Russ are up for it? We had big plans to shoot in Kings Canyon where giant sequoias are abundant. However, it wasn’t meant to be – who knew Bakersfield was still 100 miles away from the heart of the forest??? Anyway, we didn’t let that spoil the fun – somehow we were able to find a small body of water, that is Lake Ming, a midst the desert. I almost wanna bet we are pioneering Lake Ming as an engagement shoot location. At first, the prospects looked grim but 15 minutes into the shoot we were banging out sweet shots one after another….see it for yourself!
Just popping in to say a few words on this cute, adorable, CUTE couple – Tetchie and George (did I mention adorable?)! Being the train fanatics that they are, what better place to get photos than at the Old Poway Park? They slipped right into their element and were ready for their pinup shots the second they arrived. Jeff and I had such a blast clickin’ away because they are fun, bubbly and SO into each other. We also got to hit up Torrey Pines beach right before the sunset and it was just the perfect way to wrap up the day. Here’s a sneak and the rest are worth waiting for!
WOW. As I flip through the photos from Ria and Raul’s engagement shoot, I am just SO in LOVE! Raul and Ria came to me knowing exactly what they wanted – a sweet engagement shoot inspired by an even sweeter theme – Singin’ in the Rain! They were impeccably dressed for the occasion and I absolutely love how the red and black just seems to jump off the screen! Not to mention just how photogenic they both are…certainly makes my job a lot easier! It was such a fun shoot, I wished I had 3 more hours with them LOL. Seriously peeps, I love themes. If you’ve got themes, hit me up because we NEED to talk! Enjoy the sneak!
Whew! It’s been a while! Sorry I’ve been MIA since my mini vacay to NYC! Let me just say, it definitely is everything unexpected and MORE! I have mad crush for the city and I wish that it recovers from Frankenstorm quickly. I encourage everyone to head over to Red Cross and donate what you can!
On a brighter note (MUCH BRIGHTER) – I’ve got Evonne and Keaton’s engagement sesh to share! I love that they chose to stay in their neighborhood to do their engagement shoot – they were so in their element and the photos says so much of who they are. Despite some minor rain, we were able to hit up 3 different spots – Tapioca Heaven, a local park and Barns and Noble! They are such troopers and I am clearly unstoppable… LOL. Anyway, good times! Enjoy the photos!
