1084_Piya_Jay_Wedding_4439There is so much I love about this wedding! First of all, Piya and Jay are amazing… they just are. They are so sweet and full of life and their excitement is totally contagious. And their wedding? It was full of color and laughter and dancing and was such a joy to document! I am pretty sure we took about a zillion photos, so I won’t clutter this post with too many words :)

Piya and Jay – thank you so much for inviting us to document this day for you. I know how important photography is to you both and we feel so honored you trusted us with an event as special as this!! We wish you a lifetime of love and adventure and look forward to keeping in touch!

Caitlin_Grant_Wedding_3096These two lovely souls were married on a classically beautiful winter day in Southern California (yes, this is winter) :)We liked Caitlin and Grant the second we met them! They have this really sincere and warm energy surrounding them and watching them interact with one another is such a joy… and their wedding was definitely one for the books! With a stunning backdrop like Verandas Beach House and one of the sweetest wedding parties we’ve had the privilege of working with, I am pretty sure we were smiling the entire day! Oh, and it didn’t hurt that this group of friends and family know how to PARTY! Some of my favorite photos of the whole day are the ones from the dance floor (I resisted posting too many on the blog) :)

This was one of those days that remind us how much we absolutely love our job and how lucky we are to meet and work with so many incredible people! Caitlin and Grant, thank you so much for having us along… We can’t wait to see where this beautiful love of yours takes you!

Katie_Alex_Engagement_0738Katie and Alex are about as cute as it gets :)  I was so excited when they decided to do their engagement session on the Pier in Santa Monica! We’ve shot on the beach in Santa Monica quite a few times, but this was our first time braving the crowds on the pier itself, and we all had such a fun time! This session was super playful and so full of belly laughs and tons of love… Katie and Alex are the kind of people who just really ENJOY each other- their friendship and love for each other is inspiring and we can’t wait for their wedding this summer!Katie_Alex_Engagement_Blog_25_43Katie_Alex_Engagement_0133Katie_Alex_Engagement_Blog_73_139Katie_Alex_Engagement_0263Katie_Alex_Engagement_Blog_208_227Katie_Alex_Engagement_0268Katie_Alex_Engagement_Blog_295_316Katie_Alex_Engagement_0787Katie_Alex_Engagement_0548Katie_Alex_Engagement_Blog_375_384Katie_Alex_Engagement_0802Katie_Alex_Engagement_0431Katie_Alex_Engagement_Blog_318_401Katie_Alex_Engagement_0530Katie_Alex_Engagement_Blog_514_525Katie_Alex_Engagement_0540Katie_Alex_Engagement_Blog_521_537Katie_Alex_Engagement_0597Katie_Alex_Engagement_Blog_630_724Katie_Alex_Engagement_0673Katie_Alex_Engagement_Blog_613_807Katie_Alex_Engagement_0746Katie_Alex_Engagement_Blog_637_705Katie_Alex_Engagement_0681We finished Katie and Alex’s engagement session at Playa Vista Park!

Ali_Steve_Engagement_1283Ah, California… just as we’re getting ready to leave you, you give us winter days like this with clients like these and it just makes my heart swell…  We had the best afternoon with Ali and Steve! The session itself was super laid back, which was amazing, as it allowed for really natural and authentic imagery. Mixed with the kind of backdrop Pacific Palisades offers, you really can’t go wrong :)  Ali and Steve share a really beautiful and gentle love- you can see how much they adore each other just by watching them interact… and we love that they pretty much spent the afternoon cuddling:)  Their wedding is coming up in just a few weeks and we can’t wait to document what’s sure to be a truly beautiful celebration!Ali_Steve_Engagement_0108Ali_Steve_Engagement_20_203Ali_Steve_Engagement_0094Ali_Steve_Engagement_0024Ali_Steve_Engagement_283_358Ali_Steve_Engagement_0182Ali_Steve_Engagement_371_421Ali_Steve_Engagement_0328Ali_Steve_Engagement_0217Ali_Steve_Engagement_0492Ali_Steve_Engagement_0240Ali_Steve_Engagement_0596Ali_Steve_Engagement_0766Ali_Steve_Engagement_690_866Ali_Steve_Engagement_0700Ali_Steve_Engagement_905_924Ali_Steve_Engagement_0881Ali_Steve_Engagement_1425Ali_Steve_Engagement_0774Ali_Steve_Engagement_0803Ali_Steve_Engagement_604_1428Ali_Steve_Engagement_0941Ali_Steve_Engagement_0973Ali_Steve_Engagement_992_1106Ali_Steve_Engagement_1064Ali_Steve_Engagement_1070_1465Ali_Steve_Engagement_1104Ali_Steve_Engagement_1154Ali_Steve_Engagement_1269Ali_Steve_Engagement_1251_1452Ali_Steve_Engagement_1164Ali_Steve_Engagement_1384Ali_Steve_Engagement_1192Ali_Steve_Engagement_1188Ali_Steve_Engagement_908_946Ali_Steve_Engagement_1195Ali_Steve_Engagement_1262_1335Ali_Steve_Engagement_1499

Brittany_Joe_Engagement_NY_0251This was one of those New York City afternoons in the park that dreams are made of :)When Brittany reached out to us to see if we’d be interested in documenting two engagement sessions for them- one in New York and one in San Francisco- we were instantly excited! Joe plays for the SF Giants and they had a limited amount of time in New York before they had to head out west, so next thing we knew, we were flying back east for this pretty winter session! Those of you who have lived on the east coast know how unpredictable weather can be, and sure enough the day we had their session scheduled, forecast called for ‘freezing rain’ – but thankfully, we have the coolest clients in the world and Brittany and Joe were up for a shoot in the rain, and I am so very glad they were :)The whole park was practically empty! It seriously felt like we were on a movie set… We started at Bow Bridge (where Joe proposed to Brittany) and just wandered around for a couple hours and had the best time! These two have the sweetest love story and watching them interact was pretty incredible. They are super easy going, treat each other with tons of love and kindness, and are so excited to get married!

Cannot wait to hang out with these two lovebirds again this summer in San Francisco!!
