I met Hazel & Thomas in Pasadena last weekend for their engagement portraits. I like to photograph engagement portraits in a place that means something to you, the couple, so I usually ask what you like to do together, where you go out, etc. Hazel and Thomas came armed with an answer before I could even ask. They love to browse the grocery store and look around, maybe visit the in house Starbucks, and sometimes pick out something to make for dinner together. They took the initiative to get permission for our shoot from their local Vons , and I was so appreciative! It's great when the couple helps out like that, and has an idea they are passionate about! The people at Vons were more then helpful, and very sweet and congratulatory to Hazel and Thomas during out shoot.
We started with a stroll outside first, and then moved inside Vons. Hazel and Thomas were non stop giggles. I'd like to take credit for the laughs and smiles, but I'm not that funny (except to myself). They clearly have a great time together! I am so excited for their wedding later this fall.
Hazel's sister Lindsay is a hair and make up artist, and did Hazel's styling for the shoot. She did a great job, and even stayed for the shoot so she could do any needed touch ups. She was a great help!
Enjoy the photos, and let me know what you think in the comments.

Brian & Stephanie's wedding was classic, honoring, intimate, and fun! I was so glad to be in attendance. This was the first time I had seen a full choir as part of the ceremony- it was such a treat! This was my first wedding of the year, and it got me very excited for the many weddings to come! I owe a big thanks to my second shooter, Gabriel Mora, for coming a long and keeping me going.

I love getting save the dates and invitations from my clients. One, I love seeing my photographs used, and printed. Two, I love all things paper, stationary, and invite design. Three, I too look forward to attending your event just like your guests. It's not just "work" or a "job" for me. I genuinely look forward to the engagements, weddings, and it all. I wouldn't be in this business if I didn't love weddings, and all that includes.
Recently I got the save the date for Mike and Tiffany's wedding. I will be photographing their Florida wedding this June, and I can't wait!! Their save the date was designed* by the super sweet Diana at Invited Design, based in St. Louis. Check out her etsy shop if you need any wedding, or non wedding invites: inviteddesign.etsy.com
