Katrina and Adam are a sweet couple who recently moved to Long Beach from Washington State. They have tons of great style, adorable smiles, and lots love to share! We spent the eventing at a beautiful beach Laguna and captured these fun engagement pictures with their energetic puppy. My favorite part of the evening was taking some unexpected pictures of these two with Adam’s vintage beetle right after sunset. It kinda reminds me of when Mat and I took our engagement pictures with his Delorean. Dream cars always make great props!
Melissa and Greg had a beautiful wedding in Long Beach this past weekend at the Long Beach Museum of Art. I first met them back in March, as they described a “fun, beachy, and relaxed” wedding with a balance of colors of pink and navy with succulents and orchids. On their wedding day, they chose to have a first look before the ceremony followed by formal pictures of their family. I’ve photographed weddings at the Museum of Art a handful of times, and it’s always a challenge to do something new and unique. For the first look, we found a beautiful spot in the lobby by the fireplace where the light was coming though the windows, overlooking the ocean. Some fun elements of their evening included a photobooth and ice-cream (of which I had 2 helpings, guilty!). To check out the progress of their album design click HERE. Friend and family can see all wedding images online HERE.
Stephanie and Ryan are a super fun couple with great style and lots of personality. They are planning a wedding for this November in Huntington Beach. For their engagement session, Stephanie wanted to do something a little “fancier” with their attire and focus their session of the downtown architecture of HB. We started their session a couple hours before sunset and took a stroll down a cool alley that had lots of great nooks with cool textures.
Mao wanted to celebrate the pregnancy of her first child with some beautiful portraits at her favorite beach. We met up right before sunset, and the lighting was beautiful with a soft, overcast glow that got brighter as the sun set. Mao is about 8.5 weeks pregnant and looks amazing! I love being able to capture such a special time in her family’s life. =)
