Vista Hermosa Park Engagement Session

Jeannette & Victor ~ Engaged!
Downtown Los Angeles, CA

This beautiful couple started off their engagement session at Vista Hermosa Park. It has a beautiful view of Downtown Los Angeles. This was perfect for their engagement session but it's also an awesome place to visit if you want to relax on a bench or sit on the grass and look at the beautiful scenery.

Afterwards we headed to the 4th Street Bridge near East Los Angeles. I loved the pop of color that the balloons Jeannette and Victor brought gave their photos. It was a nice contract to the urban look the background had.

We can't wait to photograph their wedding next year! It's sure to be a lot of fun!

Here are some of our favorite shots of the day.

Jeannette wanted to make sure to incorporate Victor's uniform along with her ring so this ring shot was perfect!

Oviatt Penthouse Wedding

Adriana & Henry ~ Married!
Wedding Ceremony & Reception: Oviatt Penthouse
Downtown Los Angeles, California

I couldn't wait to blog this wedding for so many reasons! For one, Adriana told me over 2 years ago that when her and her (then) boyfriend got married, Art and I had to be her photographers. The other reason being that she is an amazing friend to one of my amazing friends that is family to us. So when I get the message saying she was engaged and wanted us to be her photographers, I was as happy as I would be for any of my friends! A lot of it has to do with Adriana being one of the sweetest people you will meet and it's so infectious. That's the type of person you want to be around :) So of course, both Art and I were so happy to photograph Henry and Adriana's big day. 

Henry and Adriana chose downtown LA as the backdrop to their beautiful and intimate wedding because that's where they spend many dates at and, let's face it, it's just a beautiful place to celebrate and have fun! They had a beautiful outdoor ceremony and reception, filled with just the closest of friends and family. One thing I love about small weddings like that is that you can really feel the love from the guests towards the couple.

Here are just some of our favorite photos! 

Ceremony time!

Look how in love Adriana look while looking at her soon to be Mr.

My view

Art's view

Gorgeous bride!

Reception time!

I had to include some father/daughter dance photos because this papa just looked so happy and proud!

Art got this photo of Adriana's mom while they danced and it made me so emotional when Art showed it to me. As a mom, I can totally put myself in her position and can understand the bittersweet feeling.


Look at that view!

That's a wrap!

Los Angeles First Birthday Cake Smash

First Birthday Cake Smash Session
Los Angeles, California

If you've been reading our blog for a while, you may remember when I did my nephew's cake smash when he turned one year old, about 3 years ago. Well, he is now a big brother and it was his little sister's turn to be in front of my camera! One of the perks of being a photographer is that I get to photograph my own family members. It's the cherry on top of a super big sundae :P 

My cousin decided to do a Princess Sophia theme and I loved how cute she looked with her little tiara on! That, along with her pretty tutu, made for such a pretty cake smash session! 

My niece is known for her serious stare and her little frown, so I was SO happy when she immediately starts smiling at me when I put the camera to my face! That wasn't it, she also clapped and totally hammed it up. We were literally done in 15 minutes because she was so cooperative! 

I'm so happy to share these photos with you!

Mission accomplished!
