I was drawn to Nancy + Edward from day one! They both are such sweet and sincere people and I was ecstatic when they decided to hire us for their wedding day and engagement session! We decided to go to my trusty shooting grounds in Downtown Fullerton (I say trusty because I can always find something new and interesting to work with there). I especially loved the chemistry between Nancy + Edward...this really helps make my job easier. Also, I cannot forget to acknowledge the amazing hair and make-up that was done by Nicole DeAnne!

Introducing the soon-to-be Mr. and Mrs. Edward Kim:

I shot this engagement session of the lovely Kaitlyn + Jordan a few weeks ago down in Corona Del Mar. Kaitlyn is yet another cousin of mine and I was delighted that she and her handsome fiancee wanted to hire us to photograph her engagement session and wedding!

I was particularly happy with not only Kaitlyn + Jordan as subjects to capture, but with the awesome natural light that was available that day, it was super warm...loved it! Here are some of my favs from the day:

*On a totally random note, yesterday was my Birthday and I had a blast! I received so many birthday wishes via twitter, email, and facebook...thank you to all! If you would like to see a small documentation of my birthday celebration at the beach last night be sure to stop by Becker's blog to check it out, you'll also be able to watch an AMAZING rendition of the "Happy Birthday" song that was sang to me around the campfire, it was pretty funny!

Rad rad rad e-session! Your dock pictures are great. I'm really digging twilight and night pictures lately and you did an awesome job with that! Oh yeah... and Happy Belated Birthday! Jean and I wanted to swing by the beach and celebrate with you, but she came down with the flu and I had to convince her all night she didn't get it from swine. =) Let's grab grub sometime!
