Therese + Jim suggested for their engagement session that we shoot in Pasadena and I didn't hesitate to agree! Any chance to shoot and visit Pasadena I happily take. Pasadena feels like home to me. Maybe because Justin and I lived there for the first two years of marriage, maybe because I grew up spending every New Year's Eve on Colorado Boulevard just to sleep during the Rose Parade the next morning, or maybe because my grandmother use to own and run a bridal gown shop in Downtown Pasadena...whatever it is, I HEART that city!:)

I was lucky enough to have Erin of He and She Photography come and assist me, we had fun with Therese + Jim, I'm excited to show these images off!

Wow-thanks for the inspirational images. The backlit couple on the stairs through the grate are fantastic, but I was most struck by the long shadow/upside down image. I kept thinking I should be bothered by the fact it's upside down but the more I looked the more I short my eyes have a hard time looking away!

Desi, Justin and I use a bunch of different lenses, but our most favorite all around good lens is the Canon 35mm 1.4! I have it on my camera about 75% of the time.

It is my great pleasure to show off the lovely couple of Wendy + Matt. You may recall their faces from a contest we held at the end of 2009. When we first received Wendy's + Matt's submission I was hoping that they would be the couple to win and THEY DID! Justin and I had been looking forward to finally meeting Wendy + Matt in person after seeing how many of their loved ones had voted on them, we truly felt they deserved this great honor. Their engagement session turned out sweet! Justin and I are truly looking forward to their wedding day!

First of all, you rock for doing this. Cancer takes such a toll on a couple and the fact that they made it through deserves celebration. Not only did you give them a session, you gave them a kick butt session. These are awesome. full of romance and laughter. i love the last two. the line in the last one guiding your eye right to them is awesome. And the laughter and love in the 2nd to last rocks!!! I Love her blue dress. cute!!!

I just wanted to tell you that I have been following you for a while and you have become one of my favorite blogs! The Jill pregnant shoot is my favorite shoot ever! I absolutely adore your use of light in that shoot. The colors were so saturated, the shadows were cool in contrast to the bright warms of the light. Love your work!
