Always a good time with Ryder, Justin and Sarah – Irvine Family Portraits – UCI Holiday Photos

November 24, 2015 Family 1 Comment

For the past 4 years, I’ve been capturing Sarah and Justin with their awesome family.  Every year, we pick a different location and have a little different feel for the session.  This year we decide on UCI in Irvine on their huge campus.  With some nice buildings, awesome textured walls, and great smiles, we managed to get some very fun and memorable photos.  Watching Ryder grow up has been amazing and seeing his little personality grow is timeless.  Thank you again for everything!

Love at C&O Trattoria – A Venice Engagement Session with Charles and Brittany

October 23, 2015 Engagement Sessions 1 Comment

Not only does C & O Trattoria have amazing food, but it’s a great place for a date and some wine as Charles and Brittany would agree.  Coincidentally enough, my first date with my wife was at this same restaurant.  So I also have a personal connection with this awesome spot in Venice, California.  As we started out taking some photos, we walked around and just enjoyed the beautiful weather.  The Venice canals are always a great place for some intimate, candid moments as well as beautiful backgrounds.  The beach was swarming with people, but we managed to get to the very spot where Charles proposed to Brittany and said yes.  A beautiful, emotional moment and something we definitely wanted to recreate.  Congrats again to you both and I can’t wait for your big day next year.


Amazing Seal Beach Engagement Session – Drinks, Crossfit, Sunsets and More – Kristina and Sennad

Seal beach pier and downtown area is a perfect place for engagement photos for a fun couple like Kristina and Sennad.  With personal connections to the area and memories at many of the places we went, Kristina and Sennad’s engagement session was perfect, even on such a hot day.  Such a fun, good looking couple it almost made my job too easy.  Congrats to you both and hope you have a wonderful and awesome wedding next year.


Beautiful Engagement Session at UCI and Irvine Regional Park – Grace and Steve

September 30, 2015 Engagement Sessions 0 Comments

As I started out Steve and Grace’s engagement, I mentioned I’ve shot there many times before, but the one thing I enjoy doing is to challenge myself to think outside the box each time.  I don’t ever want to shoot at the same location and do the same shots, over and over again.  I want every one of my clients photos to be unique, fun, and personally theirs.  And I think that with this session, I definitely achieved that as I found new areas around UCI that I had never photographed at.  With Grace and Steve, it was super easy to get them to be authentic, smile, and have a great time.  They were so much fun, but at times still really romantic.  It was amazing.  We then headed out to Irvine Regional Park and got some really great photos at sunset and a few funny ones to finish it all off.  Congratulations again and I can’t wait for your big day coming up!!
