Can we chat for a minute about these two? David and Maria really are two peas in a pod and just have the BEST dynamic as a couple! You aren’t going to find a duo with a better sense of humor or two more loving people. We spent the entire session laughing and having the best time. My favorite moment of the shoot was actually right at the VERY start when I put David and Maria into their first pose. As soon as I took my very first photo, David gave the biggest smile and just YELLED with excitement, saying “I can’t believe this is happening! It’s real!”. He was so pumped (just like every man should be) to marry the love of his life that he couldn’t contain himself when he fully realized that they were ENGAGED!! Is that not perfectly lovely?!

It’s not everyday that you get to photograph a Disney Channel star and former Miss Delaware, so I have to admit that I was pretty nervous walking into their session! Within moments of meeting them, though, all of that disappeared because they really are just the BEST sort of people. I’m 99% sure that Maria is actually my soul sister (we have the weirdest/funniest text conversations) and I know that they are in for the most wonderful life together.

David and Maria, I LOVE you guys! Thank you for being such a fantastic example of true love. It’s couples like you that remind me why I adore my job so much!

Carina and Eric were pure JOY to photograph! I love when, after tons of emailing back and forth, I get to meet my couples in “real life” and we automatically click like old friends! At the beginning of the shoot, I shook Eric’s hand and by the end, he was calling Carina and I “his girls” and hugging me goodbye haha. THE BEST! I absolutely can’t wait for their big day!

Here are some of my favorites from their session at El Matador State Beach :).

    Kristin M. - Ohhhhh I love these pictures! Shoot … I wish I could have been a snail on a rock nearby to watch another round of how you perform with a client since you were so close to me. I love the natural ease from all these photos. Just beautiful!

    Question for you — what time of day did you do this shoot. The lighting is perfect and I still struggle with beach shoots not being overexposed.

    Thanks girl!ReplyCancel

Helen emailed me a while back to book my premier Styled Engagement Shoot package and I was seriously counting down the days till our shoot! I love the idea of helping my couples brainstorm and bring their vision to life, and the florals and outfits Helen and I came up with were so dreamy and right in line with the look I love to shoot!

We explored some of my favorite spots in my hometown of Palos Verdes and I absolutely love how soft and romantic the photos turned out. The gorgeous bouquet by Florals by Isabelle completely elevated the feel and elegance of their engagements photos!

Enjoy some of my faves!

Jackie and Jon were married this last Saturday on a gorgeous sunny day at Newland Barn in Huntington Beach! I photographed their engagement session a while back and I’ve been anticipating their wedding ever since! I couldn’t ask for a sweeter couple or a more gorgeous CSP bride!

My wonderful associate, Marie, photographed their big day and I was giddy editing the photos since she did such an amazing job capturing all those special moments! I completely felt like I was there celebrating along with them! She raved about how beautiful Jackie looked in her dress and told me all about Jon walking down the aisle to the sound of the Game of Thrones theme song, which made me burst out laughing! No better anthem to get ya pumped up to marry the love of your life!

Enjoy some of my personal favorites from the day! Jackie and Jon, we LOVE you!
