Heather + John were our first couple that booked for 2010, so I definitely feel like they are good luck in a way! We talked specifics over the phone and then met them for the first time at their engagement session on the campus of Chapman University. I really loved working with pillars, stairs, and...the library!

Amelia, I absolutely LOVE your work! I am always so inspired. I was wondering if you would mind sharing your lighting setup? Do you use a flash off camera only or do you use a modifier as well? Particularly the 2nd to last shot? Thank you again for sharing your talent.

We arrived to shoot Wendy + Sunup's engagement photos and the first thing I noticed were the huge bouquet of sunflowers Wendy was holding in her hands. I was super excited that they had thought to bring a fun colorful prop to add to our shoot! My favorite thing about this set of images (besides Wendy + Sunup of course!) is the color. I've always told my clients that I love working with color and prefer this over tans, blacks, or most of all browns (fact: I don't own a single brown item in my wardrobe). We shot this engagement session in Costa Mesa and had a blast! We're definitely looking forward to the wedding coming up soon in October!

Awesome photos, but seriously, no brown? It's such a wonderful earthy springboard for colors to fly from.
