mission San Juan Capistrano Engagement Session | Southern California Love

I couldn't help myself when my film lab sent me back these photos: this couple is breathtaking and I just had to post it immediately. Mission San Juan Capistrano is not only one of the most beautiful wedding venues but also a gorgeous location for an engagement shoot. It's right here in Southern California only a few miles away from the pretty town of Laguna. Who knew that a historic place with brick, stone, and ruins that look like Rome, actually exists in in California! This sweet couple is absolutely adorable and natural in front of the camera. Thanks V & M for allowing me to document this memorable time in your life, and for being so easy going during our engagement session despite the hot weather!

Previews | Beautiful Maternity Session in Orange County

I am so incredibly lucky to document Judith's beautiful transition to motherhood by photographing her in this very special season of her life. There are so many more gorgeous photos to come, but for now, I'll let you catch a glimpse of our maternity session in the rolling hills of Irvine, California.

roxanne & nick | newport beach engagement

we had so much fun photographing this engagement session and getting to know our very sweet couple, roxanne and nick! when we first met, it was like hanging out with old friends. they love the beach and even live near one, so naturally our session started on the cool sands of the pacific ocean. nothing compares to the radiant sunsets and gleaming waves of southern california. it was delightful to photograph r & n's memories of their engagement at this beautiful location in corona del mar.
