It had been a while since I shot in Downtown LA, I was especially looking forward to Tessa + Jay's engagement session after Tessa showed me their invites that she had designed herself. The invites were very "urban city" as I would describe them, so of course we both agreed that Downtown LA would be the best fit for their wedding style!
Nicole DeAnne was Tessa's Hair + Make-up genius!

Tessa and Jay must be ecstatic with these pics. My favorite is the one downtown (in color) with the buildings looming behind them. Very cool.

Hello, Excellent le blog ! Tombe sous le charme du rendu photographique. Bravo. Juste une question : comment obtiens-tu ce rendu "vintage" des photos ? J'aimerai, sinon en faire, au moins essayer d'en faire autant !

I've known Heather since she was little girl! In fact, I went to my senior prom with her older brother! When I found out she was engaged it really put into perspective how old I'm getting, lol! I'm super happy for her and Sean and I'm even happier that I get to be their wedding photographer!

I shot this session in old town Chino, home to both Heather + Sean, back at my old stomping grounds...yes, I grew up in Chino Hills! Who knew this part of Chino could photograph so well?

The Sky Jump shot, and the train track with the sunset behind them-those are fantastic. They all are, those are just my faves. Oh, and ditto to the getting old thing. When one of my little sister's friends got engaged, I couldn't believe it since she has always been that little kid that hung out with my sister. :)
