Miller Family Photo Shoot | Laguna Beach, CA

A few weeks ago, I had the opportunity to do a photo shoot for some good friends of mine and Nathalie’s: David, Joanna, and their adorable son Donavon. The Millers are moving to New Zealand for a while and so it was a great time to capture some family shots of the three of them before they cross to the other side of the world! Here are some of my favorites, taken at Crescent Bay in Laguna Beach. To the Millers we wish a Bon Voyage to Kiwi Land!

Gary and Tricia’s Engagement | Laguna Beach, CA

A few weeks ago I photographed Gary and Tricia at the Montage Resort in Laguna Beach, in celebration of their recent engagement. We all had a great time, and I am delighted to be shooting their wedding in August. Gary works for Disney in their PR department, and Tricia is finishing her Nursing degree at USD. The Montage Resort is where Gary proposed, so it was a special and definitely fitting location for their engagement shoot.

Here are some of my favorites from the shoot. The weather that day was fabulous, providing just the perfect lighting for great late afternoon shots.

I especially enjoyed shooting in this small cave we came across down on the beach.

It is always fun to interact with a great couple like Gary and Tricia as they seek to capture such a special time in their life through photography. I look forward to be a part of their special day in August, two weeks after my own wedding!

**It was an honor to photograph Gary and Tricia’s Engagement. I am currently booking weddings for the summer and fall. Email me if you are interested.

Mike and Rachel | Laguna Beach Engagement

About two weeks ago, I had the joy of shooting the engagement of my friend and old roommate Mike and his now fiancée Rachel.  As a photographer, it is rare that you are able to photograph the actual engagement; typically you photograph the couple a few weeks after their engagement.  But Mike decided to get creative, and wanted to capture the proposal in actual time. He surprised Rachel by flying her out to California from Texas, hiring a limousine for the day, and driving her to his favorite beach in Laguna Beach.

Two friends and I set up the location in a secluded cove at Thousand Step Beach just a few moment before the couple arrived…

Just after Mike had asked the question… to which she said “Yes!”

Champagne, chocolates, and fruit to celebrate with…

I think Mike was thinking: “Wow, did I just do this?” :)

Such a happy couple…

After lunch, we returned to Thousand Step Beach and did another photoshoot…

It was a joy and an honor to share this day with Mike and Rachel, and to capture such a memorable moment in their lives and relationship.  Thanks for bringing me in on the day guys!
