Aiyana + Peter: Cabrillo Pavillion Santa Barbara

Admittedly, Aiyana and Peter are younger than most couples I work with. The chemistry between two people is what it comes down to when I’m documenting their story. That, and choice in music. They pulled off a surprise first dance to a Missy Elliot track from my yesteryears. I knew Lose Control’s still a banger and totally didn’t need today’s youths to validate my taste in music.

There are so many small moments where they are unabashedly themselves, whether it’s Aiyana with the Sour Patch Kids, or their florals in the iconic orange home improvement buckets, that it’s hard to pick a favorite. Hence, a photoessay, right? These are my humble observations as a fly on a wall of all these emotions and observations packed into a single day. Please enjoy.

Angela + Lysander: LA Arboretum Engagement

I keep coming back to the LA Arboretum, and for good reason. The experience always teaches me something. In this case, it taught me about my past self. These posts are always introspective in some part and embody the growth mentality I openly embrace. You’ll always find me in the journey towards something, whether it has to do with my craft or something seemingly unrelated that will inevitably hone my craft. There are bits about my journey I always enjoy sharing. Go ahead, ask and try me!

Liz + Justin: University Club of Pasadena Wedding

Following up on an engagement session from last year, Liz and Justin said their “I dos” and made it official at the University Club of Pasadena. When we stepped outside for a few portraits, we had palm trees and a curb packed with parked cars. I tried getting a photo without the cars, and some with. It’s obvious which composition I stuck with. It just felt right when it came to editing. To me, it doesn’t get anymore Los Angeles than that.
