A WORK/LIFE BALANCE RELATIONSHIP

Do you ever feel like you have no days off? I mean honestly that's me every dang day. As a business owner and a freelancer, I work for myself, so I make my own hours, but honestly a lot of the time it feels like I'm ALWAYS working! Kristen and Seth 100% understand the struggle of work/life balance. We took the day to focus on them and what their day to day looks like. While they both are constantly traveling, working, emailing, etc - they often get to do it together, which is awesome! That's exactly what you want in a relationship. They do definitely spend a lot of time apart as well, but they make it work and do their best to maintain a work/life balance. We spent most of the day wandering around DTLA, specifically the arts district, but we also made it back to West Hollywood for some good shots! Enjoy!

Congrats to Brandon and Natalie! How cute are they?! Brandon proposed at SLS Beverly Hills amongst close friends, which we more or less re-created the following day. We spent the first part of the day at SLS shooting around the hotel then ventured over to Rodeo Dr and even were able to shoot in their friends suite at the Beverly Wilshire, which was an absolute dream! Look at that liiiight! Soooo dreamy! UGH!

Associate shot for Carsten Tice

It's always such a blast working with Carsten, so I was beyond stoked when she asked me to associate shoot this elopement. It was a perfect day for an elopement at Terranea. The sky was blue on one side and overcast on the other side - weird I know, but that's what it was like, which made for gorgeous blue skies behind them, but clean, even lighting on their faces. They opted for a first look then we went out onto the rocks to get some killer shots. Their ceremony was led by their friend Matt where they were surrounded by their closest family and friends. Enjoy!
