I'm SO excited for my little brother Jordan to marry the girl of his dreams...Cassie! Some of our long time blog followers may recognize Cassie's sweet face from mine & Justin's old photo blog when she hired me nearly four years ago to shoot her senior portraits.The next thing I knew I had a little brother named Jordan asking me who "that hot girl on my blog" was! I told him how cute I thought she was, then randomly a few months later they ended up meeting at a mutual friend's bonfire at the beach! They dated and Cassie even wrote letters to Jordan while he served a two year mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Jordan came home last December, swept Cassie off her feet and now they're getting married!jc_eng001.jpg

People say that Jordan and I look the most alike out of all our siblings...what do you think?!

What's really funny is that at the end of Cassie's senior pictures post you put, "make sure you looks us up in the next few years when you get engaged!!!" :D

Happy Two-fer Tuesday! I decided to post two engagement sessions on the blog today, thought I would give all you followers some extra eye-candy since I was out of town last week and un-able to access anything via the internet.

Here's Shirley + Sam, I shot their engagement session along with Jason Roger in LA with Downtown as the backdrop. We started at the Observatory and then ventured out into the surrounding areas.

Beautiful images as always Amelia. I fell in love with your work when I first saw the pictures you took of your sister-in-law (?!?) a couple of months ago cause she was the most fabulous pregnant woman I had ever seen and I've been a huge fan of yours since then. I always look forward to your next post. They are all great images, but the first with the intensity emanating from her eyes and the last one with the halo you created are my hands down fav. Keep up the fab work. :-) p.s: isnt it interesting how everyone has a different fav. I do love the subjectivity of photography. :-)

Love this session. How do you get such a good angle on the shots from above with them laying on the ground? Mine are always awkward. Do I need a ladder?
