First things first - do you see Max back there?! Isn't he the sweetest?! He was so fun to have on the shoot because he was so well behaved, sweet and fun! I was beyond stoked when Donal reached out to me after our mutual friend Darren Kennedy sent him my way. Sofie was a killer mama babe! She was hiking, climbing on rocks and telling us to follow her along the craziest paths AND she still looks FLAWLESS after all of that! I absolutely loved spending the evening with these two - such a dream!

Weddings in downtown are such a dream because us photographers can get all sorts of creative! The arts district is especially awesome because no matter where you look, theres a killer background. Amy and Oleg both got ready at the Ace Hotel then headed over to Millwick for their intimate ceremony. We spent a lot of time hanging out with them and taking photos all over DTLA beforehand!

Ian + Marta: Old Towne Orange Engagement Session

AN ORANGE CIRCLE LOVE STORY

Ian and Marta are one of the sweetest and funniest couples I've met. They had a couple drinks before we met up, which was definitely to our benefit because they were comfortable. I gave them scenarios to act out and taught them all about the "drunk walk" pictured above. They have such a strong connection and they honestly didn't need much direction because they were so in love. We wandered around Old Towne Orange for a bit on a busy weekend day, which of course was crowded, but the photos turned out awesome and I loved hanging with them.

When they say "my big fat Greek wedding" it is nothing short of big and fat and Greek! Talk about a fun crew - the groomsmen were hilarious to hang out with and the couple was gorgeous! This wedding was so fun, especially once everyone got to dancing!! Their first look was awesome, even though she couldn't move because her dress was SO HUGE! But actually wait until you see how many people had to carry her dress. It was such an interesting and fun day, I'll let the photos do the talking!
