Last month, I drove down to San Diego to document Nicolas and Stephanie’s wedding at the Los Willows Wedding and Event Estate.  I had photographed Nic’s sister in 2010 and a friend of theirs in 2012, where I saw them again, and now this wedding.  I think I’m becoming a part of the family here. They have been incredible to me and I appreciate the kindness.  And while Nic and Stephanie wanted to enjoy their wedding day, they also gave me freedom to be creative and pull them out at certain times, which is always a plus when we get ideas.  The parked Rolls Royce was just asking to be photographed, and we waited until later before taking those images.   Thanks to Kevin Holding for coming along and assisting, and for the wonderful staff at Los Willows who kept the evening going.   Here are just a few images from their celebration.

Engagement Session at Santa Monica Pier, Southern California

We all got up early for this engagement session, like 5a.m. in the morning to drive to Santa Monica Pier.  I had a wedding the evening prior near San Diego and went to bed around 1a.m. just after backing up all my wedding images. So, yeah, surviving off 4 hours of sleep, I got my Starbucks and was off with a fashionable couple from Texas, whom are marrying this 2014 year. It was an adventurous time shooting  some lifestyle photography, renting and riding bikes, kissing under the dock, taking some walks on top of the dock while the crowds were not present early in the morning. After 10a.m., everyone and their grandmas were there. While it was very hot and my head got a little sunburned, it was worth it to photograph at this location.  Congratulations to this couple on their engagement and I look forward to shooting their wedding!
