Jenny + Alex | San Juan Capistrano Engagement

Happy Friday everyone! Greetings from Playa del Carmen, Mexico. It's been a couple weeks since I last posted, and thinking about it now my last post here I wrote while I was out of town as well ;) I have been blessed this year with amazing clients, including a couple of them who have put their trust on this girl to capture their big day at a fabulous destinations. Jenny and Alex are one of those couples. I met them both through our mutual friend (Hi Lily!) At her sisters wedding last year, Alex was the lucky winner of the garter toss.. let me tell you I have never seen family happier than when this happened. Little did they know that Alex was ready to pop the big questions only a few weeks later. Its been such a great experience to now be able to work with both of them and get to know them more as a couple and future married team!

A few weeks back we took a little trip down to Orange County where we explored the beautiful town of San Juan Capistrano for their engagement session, here are just a a few of my favorites from that day.

Jenny & Alex, can't wait for today! xo



Caitlin + Zach | Los Angeles Engagement

Happy Friday my loves! So for those who follow me on social media, you might remember that I decided to kick off 2016 with a giveaway! What better way to celebrate newly engaged couples over the holidays than with a chance to win a FREE engagement session done by yours truly :) The response was great, and with the help of  random picking curtesy of the husband we had 2 winners! This past month I had the opportunity to shoot these couples and let me tell you it was an amazing time. Which brings me today to share one of these sessions - Caitlin & Zach. Like any good (blind) date at Starbucks, we met and right off the bat just hit it off with these two. I mean seriously they are perfect for one another and just the sweetest couple to be around. We started to brainstorm ideas for their engagement and at the end decided to shoot around their Los Feliz/ Silverlake neighborhood, and let me tell you it was all kinds of good!

Caitlin + Zach, thanks so much for letting me capture such a special time in your lives! xo Here are some of my favorite from our day...


When planning their session, one thing we knew was that we wanted to do was get some photos with their fur baby - Duncan. This little dude has been such a big part in their lives including Zach's proposal to Caitlin... how cute is this little family!


Always laughing <3

Karen + Nellone | Downtown Los Angeles Engagement

It took me a year to blog this engagement session... yes people a year!! But no time like the present... to date Karen and Nellone's engagement session(s) are some of my favorite! They got married this past August in New York, however for their sessions they decided to shoot in Downtown Los Angeles (where they now reside) and Joshua Tree National Park - Part 2 of their session coming on the next post. Here are some of my favorite from their LA session!

Adriana + Jeff | Portland Engagement

Happy Friday my loves! Last last year I featured this engagement session in my old blog, however with the transition to the new blog it got lost. I thought I would share this engagement session once again, its still one of my favorite engagement sessions I have been honored to capture!

Adriana and Jeff are both native to Los Angeles and worked for the same company out here, however it was not till their job took them out to Portland that their love story began... what better place to capture their engagement in the city that they fell in love in! Here are just some of my favorite from such an awesome trip up there. Stay tune their wedding is coming up next week!! xo

We started their engagement session visiting some of their favorite hiking trails and waterfalls just outside of Portland.


Later that evening we strolled around the streets of Portland... So in love with this place :)
