Anastasia & Eric // Gabriel Gastelum

Homies Forever.

Anastasia & Eric. Married.

It was an incredibly gorgeous day in Los Angeles. Guests sat under the warm sun and eagerly anticipated their vows. Two different cultures and families coming together as one. The day was filled with warm and loving embraces, beautiful smiles, AWESOME food, Panamanian dances and great dance moves from life-long friends. No really, the dance floor was pretty incredible by the end of the night.

Anastasia & Eric. Thank you so much for having me take part in such a special day. It was such an honor to see you surrounded by such amazing family and friends on this incredible day as you both start your new life together.

The first look. So special. Gives them those extra moments before the ceremony and reception just to themselves. (Well themselves and tons of people with video equipment and cameras pointed at them).

Larissa & Paul

Larissa & Paul // Powdered Colors Engagement Session

When Larissa & Paul first suggested we meet to talk about their wedding, they recommended we meet at a cafe that serves churros and hot chocolate.

It was meant to be. 

I’m incredibly honored to be working with Larissa & Paul and I’m excited for their wedding next year. It should be a day filled with the awesomeness. To say I had a blast shooting their engagement session would be an understatement.

“We are totally up for something out of the ordinary” is probably the best thing they could have told me.

I’m just going to let the pictures speak for themselves.

Enjoy!

LYNDSAY & ADAM : ENGAGED

“I have to warn you, that Adam is a horrible picture taker. He just can’t have a good smile in a picture!”

Lyndsay warned me over coffee when we first met. I told her that it reminded me of an episode of Friends, when Monica and Chandler are taking an engagement picture and comes off too goofy when smiling. I told her not to worry, we weren’t there to capture some lame posed smiling picture. We were going to capture their love for each other. 

Which is funny, because it was that big goofy smile that attracted Lyndsay to Adam. While working at her family’s restaurant he would come in regularly, sit down with his smile and eat. Usually, it is the guy that has to make the first move, but in this case it was Lyndsay.

“I gave him my number and pretty much demanded that he ask me out.”

Both avid football fans, dog lovers and fun lovers. Lyndsay and Adam are the type of couple any photographer would kill for. They are a hoot. I am so excited to shoot their wedding next year. It is going to be just like them. Amazing.

Tara & Bill // A Mulholland Drive Wedding

“Want to help me photograph a wedding, up on a house in Mulholland drive overlooking Los Angeles?”

Um. Yes.

A couple of weeks ago, [Dennis Kwan] was awesome enough to let me tag along to shoot Tara & Bill’s incredibly intimate and beautiful wedding. Check out his work, it is amazing.

I love small weddings. This was no exception. The house where the reception took place was undeniably gorgeous. Up on the rolling hills, on the corner of a windy road, overlooking an incredible view that can’t be described.

Tara and Bill…you’re the best!

Thank you for welcoming me like an old friend and allowing us to capture your love. And your friends. And your family. And your dancing. Your wedding was amazing and I was honored to be a small part of the day you married your best friend.

Here are some of my favorites from that day!

Susan + Andrew // Los Altos Hills Wedding

As soon as I met Susan and Andrew for coffee one day in San Mateo to talk wedding details, I knew it was going to be a good match. These two have known each other since their days at UCSD and have waited a long seven years for their big wedding day. I seem like a broken record because I always say that they are the nicest and coolest couple I have yet to meet. But, I am just incredibly lucky, because Susan and Andrew have now fallen under that category!

It was a beautiful wedding in Los Altos Hills at the [History Museum] (which is a beautiful location). The whole wedding had that magic “do it yourself” vibe (which I love). I have definitely been part of really laid back weddings before, but this one absolutely takes the cake. Everyone, from the wedding party to their family members and friends were so chill and outgoing that it was really easy to just walk around and photograph some magic.

Another awesome thing I would like to mention. Showit has recently started this new feature for it’s clients called [PASS]. It’s a revolutionary system that pretty much allows you to share client galleries and photos with anyone in an internet Kung Fu Kick Ass kind of way. Usually, I go crazy trying to post every single picture because I love so many, now I can have everyone (when allowed) look at whole galleries online, without the pesky options that other gallery and picture sites give.

You can check out Susan + Andrew’s whole wedding by [clicking here for their PASS gallery.]

If not, here are some of my favs from that day!

Tristan + Aubyn // Muir Beach Wedding Photography

I think every wedding photographer (or even non-wedding photographers) will always remember the first wedding they have the privilege to photograph. I was contacted about Tristan and Aubyn’s wedding at the last second, because a photographer had fallen through on travel plans. The wedding ceremony and reception were the epitome of Do It Yourself weddings. It was on a small cliff point at the Muir Beach Overlook. The family had decorated the area themselves, the father played the flute while Aubyn walked down the “aisle”. Tristan’s brother officiated the wedding and a girl no more than 15 years old made the wedding cake.

It was absolutely amazing. Together in front of their family and friends, Tristan and Aubyn, made a solemn and tearful oath to love, honor, and cherish. In that moment it seemed like their love extended far beyond the view the cliffs could provide. “It just couldn’t have been a more perfect day,” the Bride’s mother exhaled.

As a photographer, I always go back to my earliest work and semi-cringe at how I edited the pictures. I hope I am not the only one that does this. I remember being a little scared at the wedding because the sun was out in full force. But, I know that I got some good shots. I picked out a few of my favorites and re-edited them? Why? Just for fun, and so I won’t forget that it was small weddings like Tristan and Aubyn’s that prepared me for the huge wedding extravaganzas that I have photographed after.

I want to thank you Tristan and Aubyn, not only for letting me feel at ease behind my camera, but for welcoming me into such a private and heartfelt moment with you, your family and friends and for allowing me to grow as a photographer.

Susan + Andrew // San Francisco Engagement Photography

To say that Susan + Andrew make each other smile is an understatement. It was all the little things I noticed. The way they grab each other’s hand while they walk, the way he covers her from the cold, the way she looks up at him and feels at home. Before I began the arduous process of moving to LA (which, in fact, will take about a month) I had the opportunity to grab Susan and Andrew’s engagement pictures at Fort Point in San Francisco.

They asked for recommendations on locations in the city since they live further South and I immediately thought of Fort Point (mostly because Kiernan and Jenny rocked it there as well). It was a little cold and windy that afternoon, but that did not stop us from having a blast and getting some rockin’ pictures!

Susan and Andrew are getting married in August in Los Altos and I’m thrilled to be a part of their wedding!

What I love about using Showit for my website needs is the fact that it allows me to have mini +sites for my clients (or anything else really). Since I am a bestie and groomsman for her wedding, I can’t photograph for Evy (the awesome Anna Wu has that honor), but I did tell her I could help her out with her wedding site for people to check out.

I am super excited for their wedding. I even got my tux measurements today! So go ahead and visit the site and send some love their way!

Their engagement story is nothing short of hilarious.

Karla + Jason // Lifestyle Couple Photography Session

Before I left for New Orleans I scheduled a photoshoot with the amazing couple that is Karla and Jason. Karla contacted me and said that they take photos every year as a couple and this one was no different. They, of course, brought along the CUTEST dogs in the history of the world. We met up in Danville for the shoot and I fell in love with the area. It was my first time there and it didn’t even feel as if I was in the Bay Area at all, it actually felt as if I was in a different time zone.

It was incredible.

Just like these two. These two click like I hope all my future couples click. The were also completely natural in front of the camera, even Jason. Most guys take a while to warm up to the lens, but this guy rode along and had fun. Karla has an amazing smile, is way more fashionable than I can ever fathom and makes amazing bow-ties if you are ever interested. She also has a great blog (check it out).

Anyway, thank you Karla and Jason for letting me capture you two and for making it such a wonderful and fun shoot!

I know I know that I am behind on the postings, but a little preview never hurt anyone right? Last weekend, I met up with Karla and Jason down in Danville for a photoshoot celebrating their anniversary. I have to say that I had sooooo much fun with both of them! They are amazing together and it was awesome discovering the town of Danville for the first time (it’s gorgeous). It’s couples like this that make me realize I have the best clients EVAR! Can’t wait to show you guys the rest from the session!
