Linda + Hiep : Engagement Session : Peohe’s

They met over 6 years ago, he saw her and knew he had to swoon her with his charm, his patience, and with food. Yup, he brought her lunch almost everyday. My kinda guy. I am definitely impressed. She was not. Not just yet.

… Til one day, he disappeared. He just stopped showing up. And the lunch treats… no more. This made her realize what she was missing, how much his friendship meant to her, how much she really did care for him, plus who was gonna feed her?

But it was all part of his plan…

A year after their first encounter, they had their official date at Peohe’s. And today, I was lucky enough to be part of their lunch date.









Okay, now kiss… or you can skip?? I was sitting quite a bit away giving them instructions while I was photographing them. I thought what a perfect moment for them to lean in and kiss. I yelled out, “Kiss!” but instead I got the 2 of them to skip. Now how else would I have captured this?

Did I mention how much fun they were to shoot, Hiep would not stop giggling. Sorry Hiep, I hope I did not take your man card away.

He’s blowing her kisses.



Mmmmm.. YUM! Thanks for feeding me.

He is trying to convince me that this is his natural smile. ?????

I enjoyed you two. Thank you.
Skip. Kiss. Love.

Serena + Josh : Engagement Session : Downtown San Diego : Coronado

We were to meet at 3:30pm on a beautiful Sunday afternoon in Coronado, where it views the Coronado Bridge and Downtown San Diego Skyline. It was the perfect day to photograph the girl with a million dollar smile and the charming boy from Virginia.

At 10:06am, I receive an email from Serena: We are getting ready…for some reason I’m kinda nervous about taking pics.

First thought, its 10:06 am. My eyelids are still stuck to my contacts, what is she doing up so early?

Second thought, she’s a natural beauty. She doesn’t need to get ready this early.  This girl is fierce, hands on hip fierce.

I was right, she is a natural. They both are. They were comfortable, relaxed and quite the cutest couple. I am glad to know the GEICO telephone made its way back to Josh. Congrats to the both of you and I am very, very happy for the 2 of you.

Here is a little peek at your session.

Joy + Caesar {E-Session}

This was an exciting shoot for all of us. When I first met these two, they were talking to me about their common interests including their love for music, one of the reasons they fell in love. He plays piano and she sings. It is really sweet and could not be more perfect. I could not help but smile when I saw them walk in, congrats you two. Congrats. Thank you for giving me this opportunity. I would like to write more but these images says it all. It really does.  Here is your sneak peek, I can’t wait to show you the rest.

Tom Bagley – such an extremely talented and sweet guy. I don’t know if I can thank you enough.
