Wiggin & Jeff | Engagement Session

Wed, May 28 2014 03:28 | Permalink

We had a wonderful time taking these  photos with our friends Wiggin & Jeff.  We shot these just down the road from their house at a really wonderful park.

They brought balloons and sparklers and had such great ideas. They are undeniably cute together and it was easy to get great pictures from such a loving couple.

We can't wait to see what they do with their wedding.  I'm sure it's going to melt our hearts.

Whitney + Brian, Sunset Cliffs Engagement

Wed, Mar 2 2011 11:50 | Permalink
Whitney & Brian are getting married!! Whitney is a close friend of mine and I'm getting a huge kick out of helping her through the planning process. I'm amazed at how fast everything is coming together for them and the low-stress approach they're taking to everything, even with Brian being in San Francisco.  I'm positive that their wedding will be fun and carefree, a real celebration of their relationship.

For their engagement photos we met at Sunset Cliffs right next to where they had their first date and ended the session on Harbor Island with the beautiful San Diego skyline as a backdrop, just like their first kiss a few years back. Whitney wore grey with plumb accents in her scarf for the daytime photos to match her wedding colors.

In just 5 months I'll be posting their wedding photos!

Kami + Christian - SURPRISE PROPOSAL SHOOT

Mon, Feb 14 2011 07:31 | Permalink Some days I just absolutely love my job.

Christian contacted us a few weeks ago to do a photo session with him and his girlfriend, Kami, while she was visiting him from Utah. As the session drew near Bob and I started to suspect he was going to propose during the shoot, but we didn't say anything. Sure enough as Bob and Bryan were setting up and Kami finished getting ready, Christian took me aside and pulled out a ring box!!!! He asked me to pick a great spot and we arranged a signal (talk about pressure). I tried to keep my composure, but I was definitely shaking, over-talking with excitement and fighting back tears. I don't want to say too much more or spoil the surprise in what you're about to watch, but I'm SO SO excited for Kami and Christian to see this slide show and share this special moment with their families!





About the video: Tara (Bob's wife), being the genius that she is, sent me a text message during the shoot. I normally ignore my phone on the job, but she called and texted so many times I thought it was a serious flood/fire/death emergency. Her text read: "I put the video camera in the car just in case he proposes to her :)"  At that point the video camera was too far away and I couldn't (quickly) find a way to get the camera. But her text came just at the right moment. SO, I essentially forced Bryan into switching from photo to video mode on his camera while Bob and I snapped away. SURPRISE!

Thank you both for allowing us to take part in such a special and important moment. This was a first for us!

Laraine + Anthony's Engagement Session

San Diego weather is (almost) perfect. I'm so glad we rescheduled Laraine and Anthony's shoot that was originally set for a really foggy, gross day. It was fun working with them and the La Jolla sunshine and beautiful sunset was a huge plus.

Christina + Scot Engagement

Tue, Nov 30 2010 11:58 | Permalink



Christina & Scot are getting married in Indian Wells next June and came out to San Diego for a destination engagement. Christina and I decided on Coronado (one of my favorite places in San Diego) for their session.

We were all really lucky and picked a gorgeous day in between two rainy days for their engagement.

Christina and Scot had a great time....

they were treated to a surprise "congratulations" song and dance by the Hotel Del bellman....
they enjoyed the ocean at sunset...
and we enjoyed hanging out with them!!

We even had time for a Christmas photos. I love how the Del looks at this time of year.

Sheena + Joe's Engagement

Sheena, Joe, Bob and I had a great time hanging out in La Jolla. The slightly overcast day made for great beach shots! Sheena even braved out the sea wall and narrowly avoided the waves (although Bob and I weren't so lucky).

Rachel + Gianni's Engagement

Rachel was my college roommate/best friend. When she came down from LA for a visit, we were obviously more than happy to take these pictures for them! Rachel let Bob select Rose Canyon for beautiful nature shots while the wild flowers were still in season. We hung out for a few hours, Gianni carried Rachel across the creek for a quick photo-op and they danced together in the flower fields, making taking their pictures a sinch. I approve :)

May + Gerald's Engagement

Downtown offers so many great opportunities for an engagement session. Great architecture, bay views and most of all choices... Steering away from the traditional beach photos, May and Gerald opted for fun and flirty downtown. We started at Petco Park and worked our way to the SD Convention Center before heading to Fred's for some Mexican Food. Thanks May and Gerald :)
