Groom Inspiration | Photo of the Week

By, August 23, 2017

For our Photo of the Week, we’re bringing a little groom inspiration (groom-spiration?) With his white shawl lapel tux, and black bowtie, our groom Charles hit it out of the park. His ensemble was perfect for his chic wedding to Nikia at the US Grant. A look this classic deserved a solo stylized portrait! 

When photographing Charles, we couldn’t help bringing out his wistful expression and infectious smile. Enjoy :)Portrait of a handsome groom

Mission San Juan Capistrano Engagement | Neeka and Garrett

By, August 18, 2017

When Neeka and Garrett chose the Mission San Juan Capistrano for their engagement session, we knew we were in for a romantic photoshoot. This historic site features charming stone arches, bright flowering gardens, and pure Southern California sunshine. The location provided a fitting backdrop for this couple’s classic style.

Throughout the shoot, Neeka and Garrett cut striking silhouettes against the Mission’s towering walls, whitewashed by centuries of southern California sunshine.  Here are a few of our favorite images created that day.

The Mission's courtyard offers ample opportunity for photos with depth and character. We stepped back and used a telephoto lens for this image, showcasing the background while utilizing the stunning flowers to naturally frame Neeka and Garrett in this scene.

We love to photograph with a shallow depth of field, which draws attention to our subjects by separating them from the dreamy softness of the background. In this photo, sunlight naturally filled the arched walkways surrounding the Mission's courtyard, providing flattering shade for Neeka and Garrett.

We're always looking for shots that will really pop in both color and black & white. Neeka and Garrett wore dark navy, which stood out beautifully against the textured backdrops at the Mission.

Beachy Maternity Shoot | Sonia and Cameron

By, June 14, 2017

It’s always a treat to hear from our wedding clients, especially when they have a baby on the way. Recently, we were delighted to hear back from Sonia and Cameron, who had a beautiful wedding in Newport Beach not too long ago. For the maternity shoot, they decided to go with a beach vibe, so we headed to La Jolla Shores. Between the Scripps Institute of Oceanography, and the golden coast of La Jolla, we were able to capture many beautiful photo locales in one shoot :) Have a look at some of the highlights!
