Eric + Sonya | South Bay Engagement

I first met Eric a few years ago hanging out at our local watering hole.  He’ll trick you into thinking he’s a tough NFL football player, but really he’s a kind gentleman with the biggest heart.  I’m so happy he found Sonya, who is stunningly beautiful, easy going, kind-hearted, lets just say she has all the great qualities one aspires to.  Eric was very, VERY apprehensive going into this photo session, but it turns out I was able to get some laughs out of him and we all ended up having a great time!  Aren’t these two just ADORABLE!!!

Cheers to love and laughter! xo

This building was not only cool for the colors and textures, but Sonya is from Seattle which has a 206 area code.  It was meant to be:)

Panty Raid Shoot

Panty Raid is the coolest lingerie shop in LA!!!  Located in Los Feliz, they have some of the most stunning pieces of lingerie, perfect for Valentine’s day.  I absolutely love, love, love all the merchandise!

Here are some photos of their new inventory shown on the gorgeous actor/model Marie Bollinger.  We had such a fun girls day shooting this!  A big thanks to Katie, Jen, Marie & Eva for making the day so enjoyable!

Geoff + Lauren | Coto Valley Country Club Wedding | Part II

The reception was held at the beautiful Coto Valley Country Club where we dodged the rain to get a few shots around the property.  Rain on a wedding day is good luck and is said to bring fertility:).

Here’s a little recap of the reception at Coto Valley Country Club.  Everyone was in great spirits with the funny speeches that included a blown up embarrassing photo of Geoff at his bachelor party.  Jay’s Catering served up some delicious Brisket!  One of my favorite dishes, WHOOT!  Geoff got “Iced” by the Maid of Honor, there were multiple dance-off’s, karaoke rapping to “I like Big Butts,” cake smashing, and mile long smiles.  This was a good one to say the least:).
