Best of 2017 || Save the Date: Engagement Sessions

I missed our chance last year to do the 2016 best of weddings selections, so since my 2018 resolution is to “handle it”, I’ve made sure to have just some of my favorites from 2017 ready to go. I couldn’t go back and pick everything I really wanted but I did get alot of my favorites from each wedding I shot myself this last year. 2017 was a new year with new adventures and new worlds for me, this year I plan to focus on myself and grow in ways I never thought I could. Thanks to all my couples who have trusted in me and my team to capture their wedding days, and especially here in this set of my favorites from their engagement sessions shot in 2017.

I love engagement sessions because it gives me the opportunity to get to know my couples and for them to get to know me as well as receive a taste of how I direct and shoot. Engagement sessions also give me true creative reign with storyboarding, compositions, and really making fun poses and compositions without worrying about the constraints of time and formal clothing. Hope you love these images from the year and can’t wait to push the envelope in 2018. Please enjoy!

Kristine + Ian || Engagement Photos || Los Angeles, CA

I’m finally getting to shoot Kristine and Ian’s engagement session! Some 3 or 4 years ago I put a call out onto facebook for couples that would shoot with us for a training session with my team. Ian and Kristine volunteered immediately and we gave them a little shoot while we used them for training. We also kept in touch since we shot Ian’s sister’s wedding and stayed close at family and friend events. We’ve been blessed to do so many of their circle and so I’m stoked to share these as well. I’ve been creating stories lately with all of my engagement sessions and sharing a piece of their hearts in all of my photographs. I hope you can see what I’m talking about here with Ian and Kristine’s night out. Please enjoy!
