Big Bear Lake Engagement - Brooke + Patrck

I have neglected my blog for quite some time. I’ll be honest, it’s not my favorite thing to do, but it’s necessary. So, this year, I’m going to try to post a lot more of my work here.

Here’s one of my favorite engagement sessions captured in Big Bear Lake. Even though there wasn’t any snow, it’s just as beautiful. Oh and Brooke & Patrick aren’t so bad either!


Orange County Engagement Session - Jordan + Marcus

Jordan and Marcus' Thomas Riley Wilderness Park engagement session was one of the most fun shoots I've had this year, they're awesome! They really made my job easy! You can just tell by the photos below, that these two are meant for each other. 

Here's some of what we captured. Cheers!

Balboa Island Engagement Photos | Ashley + Mike

Ashley and Mike live on Balboa Island, so it made perfect sense to capture their engagement photos in and around their neighborhood. They have an adorable fur baby, Tyson, that we roamed a bit with before we hopped on a ferry to the Balboa Fun Zone.

We captured some photos by the water on the bay and then made our way across the street to the beach to finish their shoot. They danced, they laughed, and they (we) got a little wet by the end of their session. 

Can't wait for their wedding next year! Here's some of what we captured.

Big Bear Lake Engagement Preview - Taylor + Kyle

I had been wanting to shoot an engagement photo session in Big Bear for some time now but it never seemed to have worked out. When Taylor contacted me about capturing her and Kyle's engagement photos, I suggested that we capture some photos in Big Bear by the lake. 

She mentioned that Kyle actually proposed to her in Big Bear so it made perfect sense to schedule their engagement sesh in Big Bear. I scouted out some awesome locations the week prior to make sure we had the opportunity to get some rad shots so when they got there, I had a pretty good idea where to shoot them.

A snow covered parking lot, an empty lot (we may or may have not trespassed), a bridge, and finally Big Bear Lake. All in all we had a blast taking photos and trying to keep warm.

I can't wait to edit the whole gallery but til then, here's some of what we captured!


San Juan Capistrano Mission Engagement - Melissa + Morris

The Mission in San Juan Capistrano is always a pleasure to capture engagement and wedding photos. For Melissa and Morris, it was their engagement session that we captured there. We started off the day with some fun balloons but quickly lost them after the first location (thanks, Morris!). We didn't let that get us down as we explored and roamed around the mission. 

We spent about an hour at the Mission before we walked across the street to the Los Rios district just to mix things up a little with an outfit change and a Captain America sighting. 

Here's some highlights of their engagement session.
