These two are perfect and weird in all the best ways. They compliment each other in a way that’s beautiful to see. Kim is a beautiful, sensible girl who laughs easily, and Bilal is an academic with his head in the clouds. They’re both nerds. I loved being their Los Angeles wedding photographer. I also got to do their engagement photos late last year, which was so much fun.

This girl is amazing, so gorgeous, and talented. I’d always wanted to photograph her, and so one day some of my students and I went out for a fun day in downtown and took thousands of photos of her. One of my ambitions is to be a dance photographer in LA, and this is why.

These two are perfect for each other. And guess what, the bride MADE SO MUCH of the wedding! She’s an extreme DIYer and everything turned out so beautifully. I was honored to photograph their Los Angeles wedding. We were able to take photos beforehand, and the Ceremony and Reception was at the Grace E. Cummings Lodge in Elysian Park.

Courtney, Ambika and I met through a local Facebook group for fashion professionals. We were looking to expand our portfolio and do some fun fashion and headshot photography. These were just a couple of my favorites from the headshots we did in Pasadena. I also got to try out my new strobes and softboxes, which work amazing and super excited to use them on another shoot soon!

This family was amazing to work with! H (Mom) is a stylist for a major store, so the house, children, everything was coordinated and just gorgeous. The girls all charmed me right way, and they obviously loved each other so much. This made doing their family photos in LA a breeze. It was an in-home session because of the recent addition, and it was beautiful.

I started this skirt a couple of years ago for a photo shoot. It worked well for the shoot, I stashed it into my fabric bag, and forgot about it. But recently I messed with finishing it, and finally got it all done. Around the same time, a local LA model, Irinka, reached out to me about collaborating on some fashion photography. It was perfect timing and I really enjoyed photographing Irinka in this dress!

I love doing engagement pictures in Los Angeles. These two had a short window of time to make it work, and it happened to land on the most beautiful day in the fall. We got to meet at Chino Creek Wetlands, and then headed to the Los Angeles Water and Power building for an amazing view of the downtown skyline at night!

In between traveling from Los Angeles to Boise and a wedding, in the early hours of the morning, this family met me in the park for family photos! I loved photographing for them. The session included the two original parents, their children, a husband, child, and a girlfriend! It was awesome! They were so cooperative and fun to work with.

This couple is so beautiful together. They had their wedding at the Double Tree in Los Angeles. The hotel had a beautiful getting-ready suite and a secret spot out back with a water feature and a nice little grassy area for weddings. It was perfect. It also helps, however, that Judy and Muhanned are such a stunning couple.
