Pasadena Engagement Session at Arlington Garden | Hazel + Vaughn


We're so excited to feature Hazel and Vaughn's engagement session at Arlington Garden in Pasadena. The timing couldn't be more perfect as they wanted a romantic, garden location and wanted it right before Valentine's Day!

Just like the majority of our couple's nervously warn us, Hazel and Vaughn let us know they don't get in front of the camera frequently and were pretty nervous. I had a feeling they were lying to me because they absolutely rocked it! Right??!! 

We couldn't be happier for them and we're so excited for their Calamigos Equestrian Wedding later on this year. 

Check out a few of their engagement session highlights and make sure to wish them many blessings on their wedding!


I hope you enjoyed these as much as we did photographing them! If you, or you know a friend or two who is planning on getting married and you want us to meet them, feel free to share this post with them. Or simply fill out the form below and we'll be in contact with them. 

You absolutely rock!!

Storrier Stearns Japanese Garden Wedding Preview | Sarah and Alex

Recently we had the distinct honor and privilege of photography Sarah and Alex's wedding at the beautiful Storrier Stearns Japanese Garden in Pasadena. Photographing weddings here is such a dream as it is so serene and beautiful. 

Sarah and Alex were so calm throughout the day and we couldn't be more excited to be part of their day. Their closest friends and family surrounded them as they literally had an unplugged wedding with the ambient sound from the wind blowing through the trees and the water running over the rocks into the koi ponds created the most peaceful wedding ceremony we have been a part of. 

Enjoy these preview images of their wedding until we are ready to publish the rest!


Pasadena City Hall Engagement Session | Michelle and Daniel

Pasadena City Hall lends itself to a beautiful backdrop for engagement sessions and Michelle and Daniel's relaxed session did not disappoint. We started on the second level of the building and moved towards the front as they got more and more comfortable in front of the camera. You can definitely feel the love between them and it certainly shows in their images. 

Although we can't share too many details of their wedding yet, we do know their wedding is going to be intimate and gorgeous, just like them. We're so grateful to be able to be at the beginning of their lives. We are privileged, or should I say, honored to be able document their wedding later this year at Surf and Sand Resort in Laguna Beach. 

Enjoy these images, friends!


Jandy & Wilson in Pasadena and Downtown LA | Engagement Session

We can't say enough about the couples we meet and have the opportunity to spend time with. From the first time we met Jandy & Wilson we knew we were going to have a blast with these two. For their engagement session we spent some time in the Arroyo Seco area in Pasadena to get some fun, casual shots. The historic architecture and explicit happiness between Jandy & Wilson helped make some beautiful moments!







After hanging it out in Pasadena, it was time to head for some classy fun in Downtown LA...








We don't have enough words to express how much fun we had, but I think you get the gist from this one!!


Jandy & Wilson, we had such a blast with you two!! We can't wait until August!!

Analin & Javier Wedding | 10.15.2011

Gina and I had the honor of assisting Jackie Lamas with Analin & Javier's beautiful wedding day. They are such a beautiful and family-oriented couple, and it showed throughout the whole day. From Analin's mom & dad passing on their advice and love, to her sister's pouring out their feelings with heart-felt words of kindness and wishes for a happy life together. The wedding ceremony took place at St. John the Baptist Church in Baldwin Park. Then we headed over to Pasadena City Hall to take a few portraits of the wedding party. After that it was off to the Diamond Bar Center to partayyyy!!

Here are a few shots we took. It was always a beautiful experience to enjoy two lovebirds join their lives together with family and loved ones.

Congrats Analin & Javi!!















...and a few shots of the kids' reaction to the kissing couple


Congratulations again & may you guys have a happy life full of love and laughter!!
