engagement sessions are SO much fun to photograph. it’s a time when a couple gets to have a photographer tag along on a date and capture them in their favorite locations ~ what could be better? :P  seriously, i always find these sessions to be so enjoyable and full of adventure.

to make my job even more amazing, emmanuel and christina are one of the sweetest couples you will meet. there is a gentleness and ease about their relationship that i love. watching them interact made me wish i was getting engaged all over again. and i just totally love the way emmanuel makes christina laugh…so sweet! they were such troopers too as we started in nearly ninety degree heat! we were all sweating after the first few images. but that’s l.a. for you! don’t they look so cute though? :)

congrats, you two! i’m  looking forward to your big day!

los angeles engagement photographer – billy and dianna

i can’t believe i never blogged this adorable engagement session! as i was cleaning out my computer and doing some reorganizing, i realized i never shared these amazing images of billy and dianna…and they have a baby now! eek! well, i’ve decided that these two looked too cute not to share, especially wearing their hanbok! so here are my faves from their engagement session. i have to say, i just LOVE photographing people in their traditional clothes..so beautiful!

this had to be one of the most fun sessions i have done! i love engagement sessions for so many reasons…its a time of excitement and anticipation, the two people are so in love, and its a stress free day to play and look beautiful. how much better can it get? and how lucky am i to get to be part of that??

jeansoo and ivy were so easy-going and fun. i loved how playful they with each other, such naturals in front of the camera. i couldnt believe how relaxed they were with the wedding so near! just a couple of weeks after our session, they were married in korea…how cool was that? we started off at the mission in san juan capistrano and wandered around town. the weather totally cooperated.. just check out the amazing light!
