I LOVE getting outdoors for a good adventure/engagement session, but when Stephanie and Toven wanted to do their engagement photos at their apartment, I was so thrilled. I have been wanting to do an “at home” session with a couple forever and these two were perfect subjects for it. I envisioned capturing their everyday, laid back living with maybe a hint more romantic vibes without it feeling over-the-top or too sexy (not really my thing :). I think we succeeded! It probably did helps that they are friends who I’ve known forever, but still I loved getting creative and capturing some sweet, candid images for them. Making pretty images for good friends is definitely one of my favorite things!
Oh, and I would LOVE to do more at-home couple sessions like this if you’re interested. Just sayin’!
A few weeks ago, I was asked to photograph Chloe and Nikki’s wedding at Point Dume in Malibu. I jumped at the chance not only because they are a great couple but because, for whatever reason, photographing a wedding of two brides had eluded me. It was all of my favorite things… super low-key, intimate and all in such a beautiful setting. It was also my quickest wedding yet! I was only there for about an hour… A day of firsts in more ways than one! I found it all to be so inspiring and had to share some of my favorite images from the day. Enjoy!
I have been doing more and more editorial work lately, which has been so fun for me! It’s always nice to do something a little different and great way to stretch my creative muscles. Photographing Monique Otero‘s gorgeous beach picnic for Camille Styles was especially exciting as I’ve been a fan of Camille’s blog of some time. It also didn’t hurt to have beautiful food, awesome people and great sea-nery. ;) It’s featured today and you can check it out here.
