Los Angeles Whirlwind Destination Engagement

Welcome to Los Angeles travelers! These two flew all the way from Kentucky to do a whirlwind engagement photo session across the Los Angeles city proper. We went to Hermosa Park, Santa Monica Pier, Venice Beach Canals, and to the LACMA light posts. And in case you were wondering, yes there was cotton candy involved. <3

Hermosa Park, Los Angeles

I love the juxtaposition between park and city

LA Arboretum Engagement | Chawon & Karen

I have had the pleasure of being great friends with Chawon and Karen ever since I moved to Los Angeles. I have seen their relationship grow and build to such a strong bond. The two of them are some of my closest friends here and I've never been more happy knowing they are engaged.

So naturally, I decided to do their engagement photos as a wedding present to them. We picked a beautiful day to run around the LA Arboretum in Arcadia, CA. There was a light breeze in the air and a feeling of something important coming. What I captured of the two of them was nothing short of romantic and magical. Check them out below!

The LA Arboretum is filled with peacocks. :) And we caught this one hanging out on a tree.

Teen Portrait Headshots | Eli Wickstrom

A little while ago, my Mother-in-law and her youngest son Eli came into town from the Austin, Texas area. Eli has decided to try his hand at modeling and acting. His brothers used to be models when they lived in New York after they had graduated high school. So it runs in the family. And with such amazing hair and beautiful features, there's no denying this kid can go far.

So I agreed to take a few headshots and modeling sessions with him at our local park (Sepulveda Basin Wildlife Preserve). And I wanted to share some of the results with you below.
