gorgeous lifetsyle home maternity session // marina del rey

You may recognize these two from not too long ago! John & Cathy!  I met them when I first photographed their engagement / proposal… then I photographed their amazing wedding, and then I did a fun day after session with them too. I’m so excited I get to document the journey  that their love has brought them along.. and now an addition to their family! Little Leo… I can’t wait to meet him! The light in this session was just so perfect. Enjoy these favorites of mine :)

erin’s first birthday celebration // pasadena

This is one of the cutest birthday celebrations! It was a red balloon theme with a pretty pink touch to it. Grace did an absolutely amazing job with all the decorations and you can tell so much hard work and love was put into this lovely birthday for her daughter! It was so interesting to see the personalized tattoos for all the kiddies to accesorize, but I also spotted some adults taking advantage of the opportunity as well haha.

This dessert station was… pretty phenomenal too!! It was Erin’s first birthday and she definitely seems to have enjoyed that yummy smash cake. She didn’t want to let it go :) Not only does this little girl have one of the coolest names, but she knows how to enjoy sweets just like me too. Mmm! And who could forget that balloon guy! He made some of the neatest creations I’ve seen with balloons. He even had the adults wanting to get in on the fun! I secretly wanted one of my own. This traditional Korean 1st birthday wasn’t complete without Erin getting to dress up in that cute dress of hers. Check out these images to see which item she chose! I would be lying if I said I didn’t have my heart set on her choosing the camera ;-)  Enjoy some of my faves from the day…and  try not to have a sudden urge to eat a macaron <3

These photos are SO AWESOME! I love them, esp the B&W ones! Thanks Erin!

P.S. I was hoping she’d pick the camera too. Maybe if we put yours there, she would have picked it. ;)

pasadena city hall wedding // hybrid film // mark & kathy

Mark and Kathy are the coolest and sweetest! I had such a fun time capturing their love. For realzzz! They looked so classy and elegant surrounded by the picturesque and gorgeous Pasadena City Hall.  And Kathy’s dress? I was kinda in love with it! So simple, yet so beautiful and feminine! This is a hybrid mixture of my fuji 400H film (processed by RPL) and digital captures. Love love! Enjoy some of my faves!  <3 <3

malibu wedding // calamigos ranch // film

Nestled in the hills of Malibu, there is a gloriously rustic and woodsy venue called Calamigos Ranch… it has multiple spots to get married, but Orlando & Melissa chose the enchanting Cottage Pavillion! It was so photogenic and I am so happy my film scans came back in time. Enjoy my favorite film shots from my Contax of their beautiful day… complete with a ferris wheel. That dress shot is probably one of my favorites… and probably because I searched far and wide for the perfect spot (as I usually do!) and found this gem around the corner. See so many more photos from this wedding here

Ceremony & Reception Venue: Calamigos Ranch, Cottage Pavillion // Wedding Planning: Mindy Events // Dress: BHLDN, Lavern Gown

calamigos ranch malibu wedding // orlando & melissa

While being the photo editor at the Nexus, I had the task of finding and hiring new photographers. I dont exactly remember what I did to find people… since it was quite a while ago, but I know that I stumbled across Orlando while looking! His portfolio had such gorgeous travel photos and I have always been a sucker for traveling the world. His work was great, so we hired him! Orlando was one of the sweetest guys there and I remember leaving the Nexus thinking that they were going to be well taken care of! Orlando ended up becoming one of the next photo-editors after I left, which was so awesome to hear about a few years later! Melissa and Orlando met in College and their story is quite cute! I’m so glad Melissa contacted me so I could be a part of their day. I love when I get to hear from people that I knew from past years. It makes me feel like a little bit of my familiar past gets to be relived… for just a second. The coolest yet, is getting to see people with the person they’ve chosen to spend the rest of their life with! Orland & Melissa had a gorgeous wedding day at Calamigos Ranch in the Cottage Pavillion with Wedding planning and design by Mindy Events. They both look so amazing… but don’t let that fool you. They also know how to get down on the dance floor! They rocked the dance floor to “Turn Down for What” for their Grand Entrance… and although I felt a little out of the loop when I didn’t know that song earlier this summer… After their wedding and this entire wedding season thus far, I can now say I know that song very well haha! This wedding was so beautiful AND fun to be a part of… enjoy my favorite highlights <3
