Last month, I had a very romantic engagement shoot with Myra and Tom during the eclipse which was really cool to experience together.
We did their engagement shoot at Malaga Plaza as it had sentimental meaning to them. This is where they go every Sunday for coffee at the Yellow Vase. I love capturing their ritual of coffee drinking together.
Malaga Plaza was built in the 1920’s. At the center of the historical plaza is the King Neptune Fountain which is a copy of a famous statue in Bologna Italy. I was excited when I went with Myra, the week before their shoot, and saw the romantic backdrops with the beautiful architecture of archways and alcoves. A photographer’s dream for an engagement shoot!!
Such a fun couple to photograph. Myra and Tom had some great expressions.
After seeing this cute sign with the stems, I planned out this series of photos using the bouquet of stems!!!
Once in awhile it is good for the photographer to be in front of the camera. I was over-due. I had been wanting couple photographs of me and the love of my life, Mikko, forever. I picked my favorite photographer, Ben Craig to photograph us. I have worked with Ben on so many weddings and love his style. I planned out the shoot but Ben was the artist in capturing my vision which was to show how much Mikko and I love each other. Thank you Ben!!
I absolutely adore feet shots. I had scouted our location, The Camp & The Lab and knew about these stairs & planned that we would do our feets next to You and Me. I made sure we had stylish shoes, too! This image is going on the cover of our album.
Parinaz and Jeff got married in early June at City Hall but still wanted to document this special time in their life with photographs. They asked me to do the shoot at the beach where he proposed.
I back lit the above image and asked Jeff to lift up his wife creating a more soft and tender moment.
