Aimee and Anthony just celebrated 5 years together, and since we just did their engagement session last month I thought it would be a great time to share their blog! When we first met to talk about their wedding and engagement, we found out that we are all adventurers! We decided to go to Oak Glen then over to Joshua Tree National Park for their engagement session! This would give us the beautiful green trees as well as having the adventure of the desert. Aimee and Anthony both enjoy rock climbing as well, so making that a part of their engagement was a super fun idea! We all carpooled out there, and got to know each other even more on the 2 hour drive there. It was a beautiful day, and Oak Glen was full of Spring magic. From there we grabbed an apple turnover for the road and headed to Joshua Tree National Park. The wind was fairly strong, but we braved it, and it was definitely worth it! Aimee and Anthony did some bouldering, and we hiked around to take photos at the different locations. We ended at sunset with the warm glow fading on the horizon before we journeyed the two hours home. It was a great day, and I loved spending the time together and getting to know them more on this session! I am very excited for their upcoming wedding! Congratulations, Aimee and Anthony, on celebrating 5 years! Here is to many more to come!
Two friends of mine just got engaged at Disneyland, and I had the pleasure of documenting this special moment for them! Gabriel approached me a little over a month before he planned to propose to Jessi, and I was so excited to be a part of the plan! As the day drew near, we decided to meet at Disneyland a few hours early to do some scouting. Jessi was coming later with her sister, brother-in-law, and two nephews and thought Gabriel was out of town for the weekend. We planned our surprise for the backside of the castle to be sure that if she had any suspicions she would not be expecting it there. We hid on opposite sides as she approached and as she passed by, Gabriel called her name. She was shocked to see him there dropping down on one knee holding out her ring! Through lots of joyful tears, she said, "Yes!" and enveloped him in a huge hug. It was a successful proposal full of joy, tears, and laughter! We spent the next few hours taking photos around Disneyland to commemorate their engagement day! The thrill of the rides we went on could not compare to the thrill these two had with being engaged to one another! I loved being a part of this special day for them, and I look forward to seeing their "Happily Ever After" come to pass.
Sabrina and Jeremy are long term clients of mine from their engagement session back in 2014, their wedding in 2015, getting pregnant in 2017, and now they have their adorable boy, Noah, in 2018! We have already done the newborn and 3 month photos for their little man, but I had to post this blog from their maternity photos because it was one of my favorites! Sabrina looked stunning in her red dress and was a glowing mother-to-be. Jeremy, the proud soon-to-be father was already head over heels for the arrival of his son! Being a part of their new journey as parents was such a blessing for me! I love following my couples throughout these important stages in their life! Seeing their life's biggest moments come to pass and documenting their story throughout the years makes us have more than a photographer/client bond. We are friends, we are family, we are sharing in these times together, and this is why I love what I do so much! I love living life with my clients, documenting and creating memories that will stand the test of time. I want to give them photos that they will hand down to generations to come, and cherish throughout the good and difficult times. I am passionate about what I do, because I believe in celebrating and commemorating life's moments! And I want to give them my very best for the best days of their lives <3 Thank you Sabrina and Jeremy, for allowing me to be a part of your life journey together! I cannot wait to continue through with Noah's photos, and to see you two growing in love and family throughout the years to come!
