Fabulously in Love

Sherilyn: #Fabulous #dressup #make up #heels #cutiepie. Ryan: #chucks #sweettooth #inlove #socool #sweetiepie. Together: #trueLOVE #spontaneity #romanticgetaways #gettingMARRIED. I absolutely love this couple. We took their engagement all over the streets in downtown San Diego. This was also during our crowded comic-con weekend and all eye’s couldn’t help but prey on their radiating love. Here are a few I would like to share, cheers!
This is how they roll.
One of my favorite shots of all time <3

Tiffany and Jay – Engagement with Architecture

Hello, hello! It’s been a while since I’ve had time to post. Business has been a whirlwind and I’ve been shooting non-stop throughout San Diego and LA for as long as I can remember. I’m  so thankful everyday to be able to do what I’m passionate about. It especially fullfilling to be able to meet and work with all these wonderful people who appreciate the importance of photography just as much as I do. And then, sometimes I have clients who challenge me with new approaches to the art. This is where Tiffany and Jay comes in! They wanted to incorporate their love for architecture and have more of an edgy look to their engagement photos. We decided to use the Salk Institute and Scripps Institute of Oceanography. I’m very used to carefree/cutesy photos in the beaches, fields, and parks so I had a lot of fun tackling this one! And Tiffany and Jay just looked great together. I gave them a lot of calm, emotional poses that they just sank into… and maybe even forgot I was there haha. These high school sweethearts are more than ready to begin their lives together, Congrats T&J!
My favorite shots of the day!  Working with lines

Distance make the Heart Grow Fonder

Meet the awesome, Mindy & Jared! They are an eharmony couple! After a few exchanged flirty chats and finding out that they have so many parallel foundations, these two hit it off so well that they’re endured their long distance relationship between San Diego and Arizona! Now, they’re finally getting married and happily moving in with each other. I had a blast during their engagement session. Mindy’s a photographer herself so I was a little nervous at first. But I’m really happy with how everything came out. They were so fun and my camera loved them! Congrats to M & J! Special thanks to Jake Pham for assisting me in creating some of these shots =)

Wooden Canvas Prints – Woodsnap

Before this post, I just want to say that its not easy for a photographer to find a printing lab that they can trust their work in. Lets face it, there’s always possibilities of them not turning out the way you intend them to or sometimes, the medium doesn’t fully compliment the work. This wasn’t until Juliet from Woodsnap contacted and introduced me to the idea of printing on wooden canvases! I was immediately pulled towards the idea because this medium not only reflects my style but could bring out more character from my work. I’m a huge outdoor and scenic photographer. I love images of love in nature and earthy warm tones. I instantly knew Woodsnap was the perfect lab for my clients and I. Below are two studio samples I ordered. The moment they arrived felt like Christmas morning.

I just loooove how the wood enhances the warm tones in my photography and how the sky bleeds through the wood grain textures. Woodsnap uses a tattoo-like process that fuzes the ink inside of the wood, making it moist and heat resistant. This results in vibrant colors and amazing durability.  This product also comes ready to hang and no framing is necessary. The beautiful trim and cut on the back edge will cast a drop shadow on walls, adding depth.

The wooden texture has an amazing look and feel. They really bring out the best in my photos.

Here’s close up. Yes, I’m in love.. hehe.

The best part: Woodsnap is ecofriendly. They teamed up with American Forest and will plant a tree for every woodsnap sold. If you like what you see, like their page and stay updated to their latest deals and prints. Believe me when I say this makes the perfect gift for family and friends. Thank you Woodsnap!
