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

One of my favorites of their day.. Of course Duncan had to be part of it.

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!

Diana | San Diego Lifestyle Session

Summer has come and gone -- now October means playoffs and World Series. Yes Im talking about Baseball! I love this sport and honestly don't know any other girl that loves it more than I do than my dearest friend Diana. My Texas sista as my family has 'adopted' not only loves baseball but actually made it her personal goal to visit all 30 MLB stadiums across the USA (and Canada!) prior to her turning 30!! So when you get a random text saying she will be in town this summer to do the California portion of her trip, you jump right into joining her fun (crazy) adventure.  We drove down to San Diego for stadium visit 11 - prior to the game, we had time to roam the streets of downtown, here are just a few from the day. Of course it just happened that the Rangers were also in town for the game :) C86A4911C86A4917C86A4923C86A4932C86A4954C86A4959C86A4964C86A4960C86A4966

Now only 18 to go sista! xo
