Engagement at Carbon Canyon Regional Park | Rachel and Aaron


If you missed Aaron's surprise proposal at LA Live in Downtown Los Angeles he got one knee on the ice. Once we photographed their engagement session, it was pure fire. 

The love the have for each other is so evident and we're so excited to have front row seats to watch their lives blossom together. On a personal level, Rachel is my third sister and as she becomes the beautiful young woman she is, And as far as we can tell, Aaron definitely brings out the best in her. 

They both have a promising road ahead of them and we're so excited to see them get married in a few months. As a lover of travel and living a bohemian life, they're going to do things their way and we can't wait to see what they will incorporate for their wedding day.

Enjoy these images from their session and make sure to send them your blessings!


Downtown Fullerton Engagement Session | Ioanna and Dimitri


From the first time Gina and I met Ioanna and Dimitri we knew they were going to be so much fun. When we took them out for their engagement session to Fullerton Arboretum and the Downtown Fullerton area, we had no idea how much positive energy they were going to bring and all I have to say is, THEY ABSOLUTELY BROUGHT IT!! Haha!

Since they came to the United States from Greece and have established themselves in Orange County, they wanted to use the areas around Fullerton as their backdrop for their engagement session. As a graduate from Cal State Fullerton (class of 2003, baby! Go Titans! Haha!) I knew the exact locations to use and because Ioanna and Dimitri had enough energy for days, our session actually lasted a few hours. 

With their wedding coming up in a few weeks, we know it's going to be intimate, fun and surrounded by the people they absolutely love and cherish. We're so excited to see these two get married and we can't wait to see it unfold!

Many Congratulations, guys and we'll see you in a few weeks.


Balboa Fun Zone Engagement Session | Christine and Karvin

We had the privilege of hanging out with Christine and Karvin for their engagement session in Newport Beach at Balboa Fun Zone and they absolutely rocked it all day!

They told me they don't take pictures and they were so nervous, but I think they lied to me! Why do our clients lie so much?! Haha! 

We're so happy to see these two together and get ready to be married in a few months. We can tell how much they love each other and we hope you can as well through these images. 

Enjoy a few images from their engagement session and make sure to give them your best wishes!


Shaw's Cove Laguna Beach Engagement Session | Kim and Jim

A few months ago, Jim proposed to Kim at Shaw's Cove in Laguna Beach and we went back there yesterday to photograph their engagement session.

The energy between them was so contagious and they were game for just about anything. If they're joy and happiness on their wedding day is anything like their engagement session, it's going to be one fun day!

Congrats you guys and see you guys in Dana Point!


Carbon Canyon Engagement Session in Orange County | Laura and Cory


A few weeks ago, Laura and Cory had a specific request to hold their engagement session in open fields with wildflowers and tall grass. Gina and I had a few places in mind, but we were turned away from our initial location due to active wildlife on the local trails. We made a quick change of mind and found Carbon Canyon Regional Park with quite a few areas to use for their engagement session. 

The wildflowers right off the trail lent itself to a beautiful backdrop and we had such a blast with Laura and Cory. The other features in and around the park almost made it too easy to photograph. 

Engagement sessions are some of our favorite times to spend with our couples as they lend themselves to some intimate and relaxed portraits prior to the wedding day. Since Laura and Cory will be getting married at Malibu West Beach Club, the open fields and rustic setting provided a different setting for their engagement session than their wedding location. 

We can't wait to see these two get married! They certainly complement each other perfectly and we can tell their wedding is going to be awesomer than awesome. Haha!

Many congratulations to you guys and make sure to show them some love in the comments!


In addition to bringing their dog, Bailey, along to their engagement session, Laura and Cory brought a scrapbook with images stemming from when they met in high school. It was so fun to see how much their hair and clothes have changed from when they first met! Haha!
