Sometimes the best place to do a portrait session is in your very own backyard! And this was definitely the case with Andrew and Angela’s Los Angeles engagement session. I grew up in the Pasadena area where we have some amazing mountains that lend to even more amazing views of the valleys and surrounding neighborhoods. So when Angela and Andrew gave me free range to pick a spot for their engagement pictures I chose this lovely Cherry Canyon mountainside in my hometown and it did not disappoint.

From cuddles and laughs to a bit of hiking and a killer view, this Pasadena engagement session was simply a dream! The light and beautiful shrubbery gave these portraits a lovely sun kissed look and totally captured the essence of this couple.

Do you have a dreamy spot in your neighborhood that you’d like to take your engagement pictures at? If so send me a message and let’s chat! I am happily booking Los Angeles and Seattle engagement sessions year round and would love to meet you! Contact me HERE for more details and feel free to take a peek at my pricing page, too.

What’s better than a rustic bohemian bride? Absolutely nothing, if you ask me!

Working with local Los Angeles wedding vendors to put together fresh and creative bridal concepts is such a breath of fresh air and a great way to inspire real brides. Our team was made up of a handful of super talented ladies who have such a love and passion for simplistic beauty and nature — be sure to see below for their credits!

The idea behind this shoot was to portray the story of a rustic mountain bride who is preparing for her wedding day by foraging wild flowers and arranging a very simple, yet elegant tablescape. We were inspired by nature, beautiful light and wanted to convey a strong earthy undertone. It was important to us to make sure there were enough rugged/mountainous elements as well as feminine, bridal ones to really tell a unique story of this mountainous, boho bride. We included leather boots which was a lovely contrast to her delicate Leanne Marshall wedding gown and kept her hair and make up as natural as possible to highlight her beautiful features. Emblem Flowers did an amazing job of collecting a wide variety of wild flowers with fun pops of colors and textures, and Suzy of Poetrie Weddings’ vision and styling was perfection!

As a Los Angeles and Seattle wedding photographer I am always looking to let my creative juices flow and meet other wedding vendors!
