Leslie + Gal - Newport Beach Engagement Session

Leslie + Gal - Newport Beach Engagement Session

Leslie + Gal met though a Jewish socializing event, but after no time at all they realized that they were more than friends. During the session I found out that the first location was a very important spot for them. It's not only where Gal proposed, but also the location of their first kiss. I don't know about you, but I think that makes this session just a little extra special. 

Jay and I's first kiss was in a parking lot in front of a restaurant...so good job having such a photogenic location to work with! ;)

I first met Leslie + Gal at Leslie's brothers wedding, and soon after I was so excited to hear that they wanted me to photograph their wedding as well! It will be a great family centered event since her sister-in-law, Carly, started her own wedding planning business! Carly's wedding was seriously one for the books, so I just know how much of a fantastic job she will do!

Rina + Juan - Los Coyotes Country Club Wedding - Buena Park, California

Rina + Juan - Los Coyotes Country Club Wedding - Buena Park, California

I can safely say that it was the first time anyone handed me a whole olive branch the morning of their wedding, and it was a great indication of how the day played out. 

Rina + Juan's beautiful day started with a relaxed first look, and when we arrived at the ceremony venue I was blown away with how they transformed the space. After the God-Centered ceremony, they enjoyed Cocktail hour with their friends and family before following me out for sunset photos. As soon as the sun set, the rest of the night was one big party. And when I say party, I mean it! The dance floor was packed till the very last song.

Kyle + Mike - Lick Observatory Wedding - San Jose, California

Kyle + Mike - Lick Observatory Wedding  - San Jose, California

It's been hard to keep this one a secret! Last November I flew up to San Jose, California for a very special + secret elopement! We made our way up to the Lick Observatory (my dream spot since I'm a space nerd) and played in the California golden light and ended the day in front of the Great Lick Refractor. (The name makes me giggle a bit) 

Kyle + Mike found me and the rest of the vendor team from the fun Doctor Who Styled Wedding shoot we did a few years ago. I loved how Kyle + Mike incorporated little nods to the BBC show.
