Stephanie Torres & Nick Detorres : Engagement Session : Little Italy

Over 12 years ago, Stephanie and I worked at Robinsons May in the shoe department. Yes, I said shoe department. I was THE top seller of women’s shoes and Stephanie was my sidekick (seasonal ringer). I was the female version of Al Bundy but in a dress and nylons. And yes, I said Robinsons May. I miss that store. Okay back to Stephanie, she moved to San Francisco and we did not reconnect til we bumped into each other at a wedding I was photographing, Quyen and Adam’s wedding 2 years ago. She said to me: Sina, when I get married, I want you to photograph my wedding.

2 years later, we are getting married. I mean, she is getting married and I get to capture it. YAY!

Nick, it was so nice meeting you. You are quite a gentleman and I can see why the two of you fell in love. I had such a good time. You jumped right in while Stephanie, a bit on the shy side, tried to jump out but you wouldn’t let her go. In fact, I think throughout the film, you two would not stop giggling or looking at each other. Sweet dreams are made of this. Who am I to disagree? Singing…singing!

Here is more than just one.



A classic Stephanie expression.



A perfect sign for a perfect wedding.


And of course, you have to end a blog with another classic Stephanie expression.

Oh yes, and chocolate. Delicious chocolate from EXTRAordinary Desserts

Monica + Steve {Engagement Session}

Time flew by so fast. I just wanted to walk, sit, eat yogurt and talk wedding with you. It felt too easy chatting about your upcoming wedding plans, your goals and all of what we both want in life. Oh wait, we’re not getting married are we?

So easily distracted, I think we just ended up confusing each other during the paperwork process. Ha. Love it!

I think I know why Tine said .. Monica & Chandler from friends??  Shhh…. don’t tell her I told you she screwed up on the name (wait, now its on blog).  Well I did too, I guess that makes the two of us.  A day we won’t forget, I like the little things.

Here is a sneak peek of your E-Session and {Your Moment with Me} video.  Oh and by the way, I think we are both in love with colors.. I don’t know, what do you think?

Speaking of colors for anyone who does not know what to wear for their E-Shoot, Check out webspace.com called Have the Perfect Shoot for some ideas. Do not be afraid of colors cause it really is the new black.

Location:  Beautiful Little Italy

So I was laughing a bit here.  Monica is totally enjoying herself here.  Oh and Steve… you should really see the other photos…

I love shoes, what woman doesn’t love shoes?  ….She’s lying, check the trunk of her vehicle.  Its there.

The rest will be online for viewing by the end of this week.  Thanks and thank you.
