ELIZA & RON | Coronado Engagement Session

Meet Eliza & Ron! We adore these two for many reasons…one being that they decided to take a chance and shoot their session in the rain! :) A first for us and we loved it! They decided upon a travel theme for their session and brought along a few fun props. The hardest “prop” for us to use was a southwest airlplane. :) We waited and waited….and finally a southwest plane flew overhead. No other line would do since this is the airline they fly on frequently and for FREE!!!! So jealous! We can’t wait till their wedding day at the end of the year. We know it will be epic!

SAM & SINA | In the Mood for Love Session

Sam & Sina were inspired by the movie In the Mood for Love and asked that their engagement session be photographed with the same feel. We were more than happy to oblige and had the best time photographing these two! So in love, so romantic and truly made for one another!

MARVILL & ROCHELLE | San Diego Engagement Session

I have known Rochelle since she was a wee little girl so I was super excited when she asked us to shoot her upcoming wedding to the love of her life, Marvill. For starters I can count at least 3 family get-togethers where Marvill played the aloof card while we joked about Rochelle’s imaginary wedding on Pinterest. Needless to say, I’m thrilled that all those pins will now be a reality! :)

I, for one, can not wait till their big day since we will be surrounded by Rochelle’s family (all of whom I love) and we get more free tickets to Marvill’s gun show. :) I’m sure that was one of the many traits that swept Rochelle off her feet! :)

Here are some of our favorites from their downtown san diego session:

TIM & ANNETTE | San Diego Engagement Session

We love it when our clients incorporate a hobby of theirs in their engagement sessions. For Annette & Tim, this hobby was archery! It was definitely a first for us! Tim was even kind enough to show Stan how to shoot a bow & arrow. :) We decided to play up the theme by bringing an apple to their session. So much fun!!!

Check out some of our favorites from this gorgeous couple!

MOHAMMAD & ZAHRA | San Francisco Engagement Session

We are so excited to share these photos from Mohammad & Zahra’s engagement session in San Francisco! These two are just so beautiful, so playful and so perfect together!

We started their session off at Ghiradelli Square, a place they frequent for ice cream naturally! :) Then worked our way around the city stopping wherever we pleased (maybe parking illegally once or twice) and ended at Mohammad’s condo. It was great fun & we can’t wait to do it all over again…this time in San Diego for their wedding!






ANDY & BRENNA | UCSD Engagement Session

Top 5 things we love about Andy & Brenna:

1. On a materialistic level, i was totally diggin’ Brenna’s green shirt. Green is fast becoming one of my favorite colors!
2. Andy’s freckles…and we love that Brenna loves them even more!
3. the story of how they started dating. :)
4. how Brenna is so stinkin’ hot and doesn’t even know it. or maybe she does…and just doesn’t act like it. :) haha either way, she’s a beauty!
5. their undeniable CHEMISTRY

We can’t wait till your wedding day, guys!






LINDSEY & TIM | San Diego Engagement Part 1

Lindsey & Tim both love the cities they live & grew up in so they decided to do part of their session in Solana Beach, Lindsey’s hometown & part 2 in L.A., Tim’s stomping grounds. First up, solana beach! :) We can’t even begin to tell you how easy these two are to photograph and to be around. They were just full of smiles, and we have to say, Tim’s pretty good at telling fake jokes. ;) And after their wedding we know where he gets his sense of humor — his dad! But, we’ll talk about that in their wedding post.

It was Lindsey’s idea to jump out of our car and take a quick photo in front of the freeway sign that represented the distance between their relationship. We are happy to say, they no longer have to travel that distance to be together! :)

GEOFFREY & JESSICA | Coronado Engagement

We started Geoffrey & Jessica’s session at their AMAZING condo in Coronado. Immediately upon walking into their home I felt like I was in the Apple Store — clean & bright and i just wanted to touch everything! :) Here we got to meet, Nosey, Jeff’s pet snake. We’ve shot dogs up the wahoo but this was our very first snake session! Surprisingly, Nosey kinda acts like a dog…sleeps all day, likes to be warm & cuddly, gives kisses, sits, stays. We were enamored by her and our super gorgeous couple, of course! The session ended at one of their favorite trails where we were able to capture some beautiful skies!

G & J — we had a heck of time getting to know you guys during your session! we can’t wait till your wedding this year!!!











MICHELLE & LEI | Engagement Session

All we can say about these two is that from beginning to end we had a great time with them!  Whether they were eating ice cream or making dirt angels or just walking hand in hand we had a perma-grin just watching them. We seriously can not wait for their wedding day! We’re certain that their family & friends will be just as fun!

When we told Lei to lean on the tree he thought we said “climb” the tree. What’s funny is he actually did it! we <3 these two!

Lei mentioned that if Michelle gets mad all he has to do is buy her mint chocolate chip and he’s forgiven. How easy peasy is that?!? :)
