    Engagement Session ::: Jesse & Ed

    Jesse & Ed - - - they're stunning right?!? I gave them the least amount of direction I've ever given couples and they were so great! Jesse is also a photographer so she knows how it is. ;) We traipsed around the LA river, went to a park in Pasadena and spent time admiring bridges. Perfect shoot, perfect hair, perfect outfits.... They were so natural with one another, it really made my job easy. So excited to see the magic that their wedding will be! If only a labradoodle would stop by again, he made our day!


    No Monday Blues Here 

    It was a difficult weekend, not the one I thought I'd have or hoped for, but His mercies are new every morning and that's something I can hold on to. I have a hopeful heart.

    On a lighter note, my husband just sent me an email telling me he updated one of our Google calendars, it brought a smile to my face :::

    Looking forward to our 1 year anniversary next month and every year after. Love him.


    MaeMae Paperie Launch Party ::: Rainy Day Parade

    Hello All :) 

    I mentioned last week that my friend Megan was having a launch party to celebrate her newest wedding stationery collection. I had the honor of shooting the event for Megan along with my second shooter and company keeper, Jenna. The party was hosted by Urbanic in Venice and it was such a success! I'm so glad I was able to be part of such a big day for a friend. Please, please, check out her work - - it's amazing! All the hard work has definitely paid off Megan, everything is superbly gorgeous! You're such an inspiration to myself and many others! I wish you and Jason the best on your new adventure to the Mini Apple!!!

    Much much Love, L


    It's Maps ::: Puppy love

    I just love our little lady so much.



    Mark Your Calendars Paper Enthusiasts! ::: MaeMae Launch Party on March 17th

    Hello Everyone + Happy Friday!

    I wanted to let you know about a super stellar event coming your way! Next week Saturday, March 17th, MaeMae Paperie is launching their latest wedding collection. Don't fret if you aren't a bride or a bride to be, this is a celebration of paper, type, pattern, color and illustrations! I'll be there shooting the event, drop by and say hi and pick up some gorgeous stationery! Hope to see you there!


    Engagement Session ::: John & Alex

    As the weather starts to heat up here in LA I look back on this engagement session with envy. This was my first time shooting in colder weather, I'm from Hawaii and haven't been in/near/around snow too many times in my life so this was definitely a treat for me! And there were dogs. You all should know how I feel about dogs (love love love).

    John and Alex found this little cabin to shoot their engagement photos and it was an idyllic setting to say the least. John is a fellow designer at Biola and I've really enjoyed getting to know him this past year, he's very down to earth, clever and hilarious (which is great when you're working next to someone 8 hours a day!) And if that wasn't enough, Alex is also a talented designer and a baker of sweet treats. I'm so looking forward to their wedding and can't wait to see all the little details they've been working on to make their day superbly unique. I'm so lucky to be a part of it all :)

    P.S. The black & white photo is my fav!


    Design ::: Art Symposium Brochure

    I thought I'd share this brochure with you, while promoting the department I graduated from at Biola University. This brochure is for their annual Arts Symposium which is held every spring -- and is FREE. This year the topic is Sacred Space and the visionary-in-residence is Roberta Ahmanson. I enjoyed redesigning this brochure and switching up the layout from the previous year. It's nothing fancy print-wise, but the lines of color and elegant type while working with the different artists' imagery was a fun challenge.

    Happy Weekend all! I'm looking forward to an engagement session tomorrow, puppy training with Maps, an Oscar party at a friend's studio and then closing the weekend out with a birthday celebration for a dear one :)
