Whether you love hiking and frequent the trails around the Placerita Nature Center, spend every free moment at the beach, love to explore the little shops in Solvang, consider your black lab to be an important family member, want to recreate your proposal, love and collect classic muscle cars, need save the date cards to announce your wedding to family & friends, have never had a “good” picture of the two of you together, enjoy strolling the gardens around your favorite restaurant, have a fiancé works for Edison and you love the light post exhibit at LACMA, or have no idea what you want to do for your engagement portraits, we can help you.
We feel there is no better way to express your individuality, get acquainted with your photographers, feel comfortable in front of the camera, and allow us to capture the chemistry of your love and relationship than with an engagement session in a natural, relaxed setting. That is why we include this important session in all of our wedding coverage. Besides, we love getting out of the studio and exploring all of the great places Southern California has to offer.
We hope you enjoy looking at some of the places we have been recently with our couples. Planning for these sessions is the most fun because it really lets us brainstorm and let our imaginations wander. Some couples are more serious, others romantic, others fun loving and silly… that’s what makes it so interesting for us. It’s a great way to set us up for success the day of your wedding, it breaks the ice, and it gives you lots of great shots which you can display at the wedding, or you can use them to create a guest book or sign-in board for your guests to enjoy. It also builds your confidence in yourselves and us and makes the wedding day even more enjoyable as far as picture-taking. Don’t miss out on this important part of your engagement!
Jennifer & Andy had a traditional ceremony at Blessed Kateri Catholic Church and a vintage inspired, elegant reception in Jennifer’s parents’ spacious Agua Dulce backyard. Check out the amazing attention to detail, and the purple and brown color scheme. Charmaine’s Bouquet Canyon Florist provided the beautiful flowers to complement Jennifer’s vision.
The Redbury Hotel is a new boutique hotel from the sbe group. It is located in the heart of Hollywood at Hollywood and Vine, directly across the street from the iconic Capitol Records tower. Neda & Sam’s Wedding was the FIRST one they have held there. The venue is amazing…hip, trendy, stunning, fabulous! It was such a treat for us to explore every nook and cranny and to shoot among the stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Along with their beautiful daughters this couple celebrated with family and friends this wonderful February day. We can’t wait to return.
Nikki & Jeremy’s wedding had it all…a beautiful location, an awesome, fun, funky couple, a horse drawn carriage, the In-N- Out Burger truck for a midnight snack, Adee Dory coordinating every detail, fabulous flowers from Charmaine’s Florist, loving family & friends. The photographs tell the story. Enjoy!
Some things really are meant to be. Marissa & Joe are both nurses. They both work at UCLA Medical Center. That is where this storybook romance started. Their wedding was the blending of cultures and families. Their parents, Marissa’s daughter, Joe’s nephews, and all of their siblings, were active participants in the ceremony and festivities. Both Rabbi Jerry Fisher and Father Norman Supanchek officiated during the ceremony which started with a ketubah signing and included a unity candle ceremony and breaking a glass. You need only look at the joy in the faces of the family while watching to know what a success the ceremony was.
The reception was nonstop fun with a rigorous hora, one of the biggest challahs we have ever seen and dancing all night long. Marissa & Joe’s wedding was just what a wedding should be…a celebration! And we were happy to be there to celebrate with them.
Olivia is one determined young lady. Case in point- her older brother brought her groom Michael home for the first time; as his friend to hang out with. Then 12 year old Olivia spotted him and said- “I am going to marry him”. Well many, many years later she was finally allowed to date him, and yes, marry the man of her dreams. Who says persistence doesn’t pay off. Their Bridgeport wedding was like a dream come true!
We had such a great time with this sweet couple who take such good care of each other. We weren’t surprised when Michael sent a bag of McDonald’s french fries into the dressing room for his bride to munch on before starting photos. Their black, red and white themed candy bar was a big hit with all their guests.
We wish them both the happily ever after they deserve!
The sky was amazing…first a rainbow, then the billowy clouds set against a darkening sky, then the lightning show lighting up the evening skies…wow!

We will spotlight more “people pictures” soon, but couldn’t resist sharing these right away.
