La Paz, Mexico is a is a laid-back town with old-world charm that made for the perfect, fun-filled getaway to celebrate the marriage of Jillian and Chris. A unique part of their ceremony was the incorporation of the traditional Mexican lasso where a decorative rope was placed around their shoulders in the form of an '8' to symbolize infinite union. The day was warm, the sunset was spectacular and the dance floor was packed all night. Mexico, we can't wait to visit you again soon. Congrats Jillian and Chris!
Brittany and Evan are avid day hikers. So when they asked us to take their pregnancy photos, not only were we thrilled, but we knew that we could get to some of our favorite locations accessible only by hiking trails. This evening we explored Topanga Canyon and walked from grassy fields to mountain tops, with spectacular views at every turn. A few deer even joined us along the way. We couldn't be happier for these two and their new little boy due in a few months!
On the day of their private ceremony, Rachel and Justin kickstarted the morning with coffee from Handlebar Coffee Roasters. Despite the persistent rain, they kept warm and dry inside this quaint cafe. The rest of morning was just as warm. On the short walk to the venue, their golden-doodle Clementine joined in on the fun. The courthouse was practically empty because of the wet weather, which gave us our choice of places to enjoy the solitude. Congratulations, you two - we cannot wait to celebrate with you and your families in Ojai this summer!
From their renowned weekend brunch gatherings to their elopement in Mexico City, Christina and Jon know how to throw one hell of a party. At All(Most) Studio & Gallery, it was a fun-filled night of celebrating with lots of family and friends. The couple, along with lots of help from their families, completely transformed the blank-slate space with handmade banners, string lights, a mariachi band and a magician - all thanks to the vision of the incredibly talented and organized Christina. Congratulations Jon and Christina - we can't wait 'til the next party you throw!
Recently, we had the pleasure of spending an afternoon hanging out with two crazy-talented and amusing architects in the heart of Downtown LA. Aaron and Stephen marked their engagement by exploring with us Downtown's Historic Core. The buildings surrounding us were inspiring and so was the company. Check out the gallery for more images.
The early-morning rain in San Diego this weekend gave way to clear skies for miles, just in time for our engagement session with Rachael and Eric. We spent the day at two locations, the first near their home in Ocean Beach (with their excitable pup Mackenzie) where we soaked up some rays and played along the shore of the Pacific. As the sun was setting, we ventured about the Trails at Torrey Pines for our second part of the session. We could not have asked for a more beautiful setting or more gracious couple.
