SouthBay Engagement Photographer; Lisa and Matt

southaby_engagement_photographer-1I have mentioned in the past that whenever friends and family

ask to get in front of my camera, my nerves are higher than usual.

I’m settled and comfortable with my craft, confident even…

But having the people I love and care about asking me to document their most precious moments in their lives …

It’s always an honor.

Lisa and Matt are getting married in April of 2017.

They wanted their engagement session to be easy,

reflecting their personalities and their love.

I suggested staying local since their wedding festivities will be here in the SouthBay.

Torrance Beach and Madrona Marsh were our picks… and I think, they were the perfect backdrops for this spring couple!

.love.

What can I say about these two?

Sweet, down to earth, fun!

We started this engagement session with shots of tequila and margaritas ūüėČ

Lesly and Sam were so much fun to photograph… as you can see, it was hard

choosing which images to share.

I can’t wait for their August wedding.

.enjoy.

They met in High School, began dating and very easily —fell in love.

Through the years experiences, memories, lessons learned and many laughs had…

A deep, very meaningful friendship bonded these two and

Jey-Ar knew he had to make this beauty his wife.

With the sparkling lights of downtown as their backdrop,

rose petals spelled out

“Will you marry me? ” ¬†and she simply said ” YES!”¬†

I throughly enjoyed having this beautiful couple in front of my camera.

.enjoy.

H + C ; Engagement

They met at a party through a mutual friend… later at another party, he would ignore her.

An entire year later, they went out on their first date.

She dressed ” like a total geek with pink argyle socks and a cardigan ” just to see how he would respond.

He got her. He loved that she was able to have fun and laugh… A¬†sense of humor!

Years later on his birthday¬†, they finished dinner and as they walked to the car, Chris pointed to one of the tires pretending to have a flat. As Heder looked to the tire, she turned to say she didn’t think anything was wrong with it… And there he was, on his knee. You see, he too had his own sense of humor ūüôā

These two click. Their vibes are cool and their love is sweet. Their warmth radiated throughout this session.

With their wedding only a couple of weeks away, I am honored to share their Engagement Session with you.

Heder and Chris,

I am so lucky you found me on The Knot.

I hope these images represent exactly what you both give to this world.

xoxo

Veronica + Jose Engagement

Meet Veronica + Jose.

Veronica and I exchanged a few emails before we finally met.

Within minutes of our coffee date, I fell in love with these two.

Easy going, kind, funny and so cute together.

I was thrilled when they chose me to document this time in their lives.

Veronica’s bright smile is like pure sunshine and the love that Jose has for his pretty lady… they will be spectacular on their wedding day in December.

Enjoy!
