I shot this engagement session of Sierra + John, but for one reason to the next I didn't ever get a chance to feature it on my blog until now! I'm really happy to show these images off, I love the location and the color toning. The entire session was shot in Santa Monica!

We started the session off at Sierra + John's favorite and frequented coffeehouse!
js_eng_blog009.jpgOne of Sierra + John's favorite pastimes is wine it was only perfect that this is what they wanted to do during the engagement session.
I also had Emily with Roger Ruth Photography out to second shoot with me that day, love this shot Emily caught of Sierra + John on the streets in Santa Monica!
Have a good weekend and happy shooting everyone!

I love how genuine these photos are! These couples don't seem like they were ever "posing", but like they were just being themselves. You were able to catch real moments, not forced ones. Beautiful work.

I've been looking forward to Jay + Marissa's wedding for quite some time...especially since it was the first wedding Justin and I shot in 2012, starting our wedding season off with a fantastic day! Luckily for me, I've been able to take a few months off to spend time with my kids, but I'm super excited to be back in the game again!

When Justin and I arrived at the Santa Margarita Ranch we were squealing (well, I was at least, Justin was just happy) with excitement to 1. work with Jay + Marissa on their wedding day and 2. photograph this lovely bride and groom at such an AWESOME venue! We loved it!!

It's only appropriate that Jay had Yo Gabba Gabba! Vans on for his wedding, the Director of Photography for YGG had to represent!:) Plus, Jay + Marissa met on the set of Yo Gabba Gabba, so it made perfect sense to add in this small detail!
jm_wed_blog045.jpgMy favorite item of the day: Since Jay + Marissa aren't huge fans of dessert they opted to have a cheese wheel "cake" instead, I thought it was brilliant!

When I read other blogs with this many images, I think "TOOOO MAAANY!" When I read yours, I get to the end, and I'm sad it's over. You and Justin are ridiculous. I mean...just awesome. I appreciate you two pouring into me (and 20-ish other people) last year at the Lyon Shop. I also need to tell you how much I appreciate the way you love your kids. Really, really. I wish I lived nearby so that I could soak it up (and totally adopt you as my mom-mentor) once I have little kiddos. I suppose instagram will have to do. :) Anyways...totally random post but felt like I needed to share this with you today. Hope you're having a happy SoCal Friday! Again - these images rock my face off.
