Malibu Creek State Park Marriage Proposal - Andrea + Marco

Marco contacted me just a few days prior to asking Andrea to marry him at Malibu Creek State Park. Originally, he had planned to propose on the beach in Malibu and after about an hour conversation with him on the phone, we were both pretty convinced that it would be perfect. We were wrong.

It didn't occur to either of us initially to check the tide table but thankfully we did because if we hadn't, we would have been screwed. It would've been high tide and we literally wouldn't have had a beach for Marco to get down on one knee. So we both agreed that Malibu Creek State Park would be a better option.

I got there about 45 minutes prior to them to figure out what exact location would work best and then text Marco with my pin location. Unfortunately, that area has terrible cell service, so none of my texts were going through. I even hiked up to the highest hill to see if I could get a signal, but to no avail. 

So I sent one last text with the description of what I had in mind. I put a line of dry grass, which you can see right behind them in the first photo, to let Marco know that that's the best spot. The text went through and I literally jumped in the tall grass, hidden from their sight (I hoped), and waited for them. 

As I saw them starting to walk up the path, I got ready and pointed my camera in their direction. When they reached that point with the grass, they stopped (PHEW!), Marco got down on one knee, and he ask Andrea to marry him with me and their fur child, Brixton, watching and...

...SHE SAID YES!

Vasquez Rocks Engagement - Navi + Amar

Had another awesome sunrise engagement session at Vasquez Rocks with Navi & Amar. I'm not gonna lie, waking up that early for a shoot isn't always fun (never), but it was definitely worth it this time!

When you have a couple that's as cool and loving as these two are, my job is so freakin' easy!

Downtown LA Engagement Session - Priscilla + Anthony

Downtown LA was the perfect setting for Priscilla and Anthony's engagement session. We roamed around Walt Disney Concert Hall for a bit then made our way next door to LA's new museum, The Broad.  On our way back to the car, we captured some rad photos in the middle of the street right as the sun was setting.

Here's some of what we captured!

Union Station Engagement - Christina + Nick

Union Station in downtown LA was the backdrop to Christina and Nick's engagement session. The roaring 20's feel of the iconic train station matched them perfectly.

After we were done roaming around the station (and getting yelled at a couple times by security), we finished the engagement session across the street at one of my favorite LA spots, Olvera Street. 

Looking forward to their wedding later this year! Here's some of what we captured.

Seal Beach Engagement Session - Stephanie + Eric

It was a beautiful day in Seal Beach for Stephanie and Eric's engagement shoot, we totally lucked out!  Not a cloud in the sky but plenty of love in the air.  We started off our shoot underneath the pier then took a little walk down Main St.  Since it's February, a lot of the stores had their Valentine's day decorations up and we stumbled upon a store window that read "Let your heart sing!"  Talk about perfect!  Speaking of perfect, how about Stephanie's dress?!  WOW!

I'm so looking forward to Stephanie and Eric's wedding later this year.  If it's anything like our short time in Seal Beach, it'll be absolutely fabulous!  Here's some of what we captured.
