It was about a year ago, my family celebrated my brother’s Chris’ and Leah’s wedding. Since then they have welcomed their first child, Libby into the world! She was born in September, so she is still just a little peanut! They also recently purchased their first home together in Humble, TX where this past weekend, they hosted an early Thanksgiving celebration. I get to see my brother about 1-2 times a year, and it was interesting to see him in a new light as husband and father.
I first met Ray and Melissa a few months ago at Urth Cafe… we sat on the patio and sipped our drinks. They shared the story of their love and plans for a beautiful June wedding. These two met in LA during film school when Melissa was casting a leading man in her short… turns out Ray was the perfect man for the part. Melissa shared with me, the first time she knew she was in love with Ray, was during their Euro trip a year later. Ray loves astronomy and they both visit the Griffith Observatory often. It was the perfect places for their engagement photographs! When we went to the Observatory, it was overcast and foggy. Where you could usually see the Hollywood sign and downtown LA, visibility was very poor and we couldn’t see very far at all. Turns out, the light was perfectly diffused for some amazing pictures.
Ken and Reagan are an adorable couple. We met a couple months ago as they were planning their June 2011 wedding in Thousand Oaks. Reagan grew up in Malibu, loves sailing and is finishing up her masters degree at USC. Ken’s family is from Pasadena, his favorite color is blue, and loves smiling. =) They decided to have their engagement shoot at Paradise Cove in Malibu, the location of their first date, the exact spot where Ken proposed, and best Parmesan crusted Halibut!
