LISE & KYLE | Engagement

As we were scoping the Disney Concert Hall for places to shoot both Stan and I noticed Lise & Kyle standing by the entrance seemingly waiting for something. Lise was dressed in a flowing cream dress and 4 inch Louboutins and Kyle in very sharp suit. We immediately thought that this good looking couple must be watching a symphony and put into our mental rolodex that if we ever watched a concert there that we would have to dress just as sharp. But when they called out to us it hit us that they were “our” couple! :) Needless to say, we were floored when we saw them. They looked gorgeous! And their outfits were perfect against the cool, curvy, liquid-like architecture of the Disney Concert Hall as well as the dramatic lines of LACMA.

We absolutely can not wait to photograph their wedding this December!

KAREN & EDDY | Engagement

In just two short weeks Karen & Eddy will be getting married at the Hilton Bayfront Hotel in downtown San Diego. We can’t wait! But first, we wanted to show some photos of their recent engagement session which took place at the Salk Institute and Wind ‘n’ Sea. The Salk Institute was a perfect backdrop especially since Eddy is an architect! We had a great time exploring the grounds and finding lines, patterns and shadows to incorporate into their photos!

Karen & Eddy — Can’t wait to see you guys on your big day! we know it will be AMAZING!!!! enjoy the photos!

LIZA AND ROGER | Wedding

Liza and Roger were married last week at the L’auberge Hotel in Del Mar. We can’t even begin to describe how warm, light-hearted and fun these two lovebirds are….oh, and they’re not hard on the eyes either! The day was filled with so many fun moments like when Roger presented Liza with a ring pop during their ceremony! I love how even between tender moments there was laughter and humor.
The day was upscale yet relaxed. The details were exquisite yet there was a little bit of whimsy tied in. All in all it was perfect and we were honored to be a part of it!

GWEN & ARMEL | Engagement

Armel and Gwen met back in middle school and started dating in high school! Years later, they are tying the knot later this month in Balboa Park! For their session, we decided to hit up the San Diego fair to bring back some of the good old times we all had as kids. We did some eating, some rides, some games and just enjoyed the moment. Time flew by so fast and the next thing we knew it was closing time!

Armel and Gwen- See you guys REAL soon! We had a blast hanging out and losing track of time! Hope you guys weren’t too tired at work the next day especially Armel. Enjoy the photos!
