Welcome to my blog! I’m a photographer based in Orange County, California. Wedding photography is what I specialize in but I love capturing ALL the special moments life has to offer! This blog serves as my online journal where I’ll post pictures from my most recent photo shoots, share my favorite “YouTube” videos, post adorable pictures of my dogs (yes, I’m one of “those” people), and talk about anything else I feel like! Take a look around…I hope you enjoy your time here!
Normally I get to meet my couples before they book me but every once in awhile I don’t get to meet my couples until their engagement session. This was the case with Russell & Rachel…they both have pretty hectic schedules right now…especially Rachel since she is in her first year of investment banking. If you’re not familiar with their hours, let me just say…they’re brutal! Doug use to tell me these stories of when he was an investment banker and he would work on average 80-100 hours a week…WHAT!!?? He said he would often times watch the sun rise at his desk…WOW is all I have to say! So when I heard that Rachel was in investment banking, she needn’t say more :-)
As usual, Russell and Rachel were a little nervous at first, as most of my couples are, but within 5 minutes their nervousness had dissipated and I almost mistook them for professional models! They were relaxed, romantic, cute, fun…all the ingredients that make up a super fantastic engagement session! I had SO much fun with these guys and cannot wait for their wedding in April!
Here are just a few of my favorites from their session…enjoy!
I loved the architecture at the Getty Villas! It was my first time their and I absolutely adored it!
I adore this one!
Rachel is a natural :-)
The overcast light was soft & beautiful…I loved it!
A touch of sizzle :-)
It’s pretty obvious here but I must say the light & clouds were gorgeous in Malibu that day!
p.s. special thank you goes out to the fabulous Candice Maloney of De-Lovely Events for referring Russell & Rachel to me…you rock Candice!
