When I showed up to meet Sharon + Jonathan for their engagement session Jonathan pulled out his guitar, I thought it was awesome and such a great prop to add to their engagement photos! Especially since during their courtship (now there's a word I got from my mom:)!) Jonathan played the guitar a ton for Sharon and it became on of her favorite things about him. So sweet!

Also, also, Sharon's beautiful hair and make-up was done by none other than THE Nicole DeAnne!

sometimes you see two people together and you just smile. sharon & jonathan are one of those couples. you captured their affection perfectly. i love the b&w "grass view" shot. there's also something about the very first shot that is just so classic -- i think this is one they will look back on til their old and grey with fond memories.

You know what I like about december being closer than ever before is, It remains to be true until it's here. Every day we get closer than before, until Jan 1. Then every day is getting farther away until the exact middle of the year, then it gets closer again. Hmm, good thing I didn't say that out loud. Pretty lame. Anyway, I'm pretty sad that you started putting logo watermarks on all your pics, because I've been getting weddings on a different blog by showing images I stole from yours. It's worked great until now. I'm just not as good. A photographer zero, with no calories or sugar. hahaha. Love the pics you guys! You continue to amaze me byte by byte. My favorite Photograph of this shoot was the ring shot...(that was a pre-emptive pat on the fanny for the future ring shot)

I shot Nhi + Kenny's engagement photos in Downtown Fullerton, I am always amazed that after shooting there for so many years I can still find new backdrops to work with. I was super pleased to see the beautiful green dress on Nhi and the radical pink button up on Kenny, I am completely drawn to vibrant colors so this was definitely a plus right up front!

I have to give yet another shout out to my talented little sister Nicole DeAnne for doing an amazing job on Nhi's hair and make-up!

I finally got a HUGE smile from Kenny when I told him that our session was almost finished, apparently he was relieved! :)

Love these! Downtown Fullerton is my second favorite place to shoot after Downtown Orange. Always new textures, and funky walls, and backdrops! :-) Plus, Rockin' Taco, and Heroes for post shoot refreshments!
