i shot beth and ryan's engagement photos and let me just say i am in LOVE! they were a dream to work with and had so many fun ideas. we went in and out of their favorite cafes and bars on main st to make sure their session represented their style and who they are! my favorite picture from this shoot has to be the classic kiss + dip in front of the bright blue doors! or the one where they're playing arcade games in the back of the restaurant. or the one where they're surrounded by the all the bright lights. okay, never mind, i can't choose a favorite. i mean, could you?
it was raining and i felt creative. i grabbed my friends and we drove to the beach.
the rest is history <333

we spent our third day on abbot kinney. mom and i bought some handmade, turkish shoes, had ice cream at salt + straw, and enjoyed all venice had to offer! earlier in the day, i met up with my good friend, rachel, for lunch at mendocino farms! yummm! i'll never get over how nice the weather is here..
see more from my trip on instagram!
i'm so happy to be back in los angeles! this place feels like home to me and i can't help but always be in a good mood when i'm here. day one was full of the classic, touristy things! i showed mom hollywood blvd, the walk of fame, the chinese theater, and a super cute, popular tea room (which was actually gross to be honest, i'll stick with my starbucks.) we also ran into edward scissorhands and willy wonka while headed towards the disney ghirardelli shop, we had to take a photo!
one of my most fun shoots EVER! sarah has such an outgoing personality and was so up to try whatever! we shot at 8am and the weather was perfect! so happy with how pretty these turned out :-) congrats sarah!
took these a few days ago and had the best time ever! valeria was so excited about photos which made the shoot 10x better! congratulations to her on the completion of her senior year at University of Houston!
i will never get over this shoot!!! brooke is the sweetest girl ever! i love how we had two completely different moods for her senior portraits and both turned out so gorgeous!
