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.
