After being lost for about 45 minutes we finally found our way to the Palos Verdes tide pools. The plan was to shoot at several locations and use multiple props such as a chariot, tiger, and a Ferrari but once we realized that we had a beautiful sunset to work with all that other stuff just didn’t seem as cool. I shot Rey and Leilani’s wedding last year in Paso Robles, CA and we decided to set up a DayAfter photo session once the excitement of the wedding simmered down. DayAfter sessions are always a great idea; you are allowed to be more creative and have more fun without the stress of time that is tied to the actually wedding day. Congrats again Chavez’.

A few weeks ago I met up with Jesse and Ashton in Old Town Pasadena for a L.A. winter engagement session. By the way, when I say “L.A. winter” I am referring to the blistering 68 degree overcast skies where you just might need to wear a long sleeve shirt. Although they were a little shy to start, it didn’t take long for these two to heat up. From the fun shots around town, to the night lights of the Pasadena City Hall; one thing was for certain these two work well together. By the end of the night these two were pros! They made me look like I knew what I was doing. Thank you two for allowing my crazy ideas to be your one-of-a-kind memories. Can’t wait for the wedding! :-)

Anyone who knows me knows that I love graffiti art! It is a beautiful gift to be able to look at a brick wall as a blank canvas for your imagination. After meeting Dareishia and Jasmine a couple months ago, I knew that their outgoing personalities would mesh perfectly with the colorful streets of Los Angeles. We spent our day on Melrose Ave before heading over to Hollywood to catch a bit of the L.A. nightlife. Neither of us had a radio but that didn’t stop us from singing random songs throughout the day. I was more of an R&B vocalist while Jasmine ‘Busted a Flow?’ (I believe that is what cool kids say). Dareishia played the backup dancer. :-D We arguably had too much fun and almost forgot to even take pictures. All in all, this was a great day in L.A. Congratulations on your engagement!
