Jessica Snow, or better known to me as Jet Snow, has been following Justin & my work for a few years now ever since Justin did a shoot for Eliza Magazine. Now she is getting married to the her sweetheart Pat! Jet + Pat decided to hire us for a fun fantastic pre-wedding shoot in Santa Monica. We started out at the LDS Temple, it was really nice to have them all to myself. Unlike all of the other times I've shot at this temple, it's always been on a wedding day with all of the wedding guests and family around along with the hustle and bustle of the day's activities. So it was super nice to be have the luxury of time in order to get as creative as I wanted. Jet + Pat were super uber sweet to work with, I loved their dynamic and style together!

jp_011.jpgjp_012.jpgjp_013.jpgWe ended up at the Santa Monica Pier. The light was perfect, the weather was perfect, and of course Jet + Pat were perfect!

Jet! Why does you dress have to be so much better than my dress was!? Nevermind...it's not a contest ;). Amelia, you made my beautiful friend look as amazing as she does is real life! And you captured her even more gorgeous spirit. Love to you all!

Amy: I always thought the LA Temple was a horrible place to shoot wedding photos - but you make it look so awesome! I wish I'd had you shoot my wedding when I got married there!

Last month, while we were in Las Vegas, we had the saaa-weeeet opportunity to photograph the ever so talented Mindy + Ben of Studio 6.23! Mindy emailed me to set up the session a few months prior. When Justin and I met them at WPPI, we had a blast getting to know them as bright, playful, hilarious, photogenic, and super cool people to hang with!

So we drove around and bit and found this really cool house and the owner was a really nice little lady that pointed us across the street where we found....
st623blog_017.jpgTHIS!! Yup, this would the be initial of one fine man named LIBERACE!!! We had randomly stumbled upon one of Liberace's six houses in Las Vegas. For those of you who don't know who Liberace is,  he was a brilliant pianist and Las Vegas golden performer! He was the original king of bling! Luckily, the woman who owned the house was home and allowed us to come in and shoot!
st623blog_018.jpgst623blog_019.jpgThis shot makes me really happy! This was taken right in front of Liberace's personal bathtub...see image here.
st623blog_020.jpgAaaaaaand this would be a photo of Justin and I sitting on Liberace's bed in his personal bedroom!!! Thanks Mindy + Ben for taking this pic:)!
