Maria + Alvin are a sweet couple that found us all the way from San Francisco! In fact, we will be shooting their wedding at the beginning of August there. They made a trip down to SoCal and booked an engagement session with us and since they were in San Diego we decided to shoot at Balboa Park. There is something that most photographers love about this location, for me I feel like it brings out my romantic side. I really felt like it fit Maria + Alvin very well.

We also spent that afternoon with my lovely sister Nicole DeAnne, she decided to travel down to San Diego with us as Maria had hired Nicole DeAnne to do her hair and make up, nice work sister!!!

Are you kidding me with the 6th one down!? where's the light coming from? I see the shadows behind them but from what source of light? Mysterious you are. You know, they warned me about you two. They said I should stay away from you and all your witch craft, but I find myself more intrigued every single time you post. We're shooting Balboa park on Monday...we'll try not to screw it up.

Hey Amelia, I love the last shot so much. Are you using video light or off camera flash with pocket wizards or something like that. I'm just curious of your light source. Love the pose also. :) great work as always. :) Olivia
