A few Saturdays ago, I had the pleasure of taking a small stroll along the water with the Miller family. They were in town visiting family for Easter, and wanted to squeeze in an early morning family portrait session. They are all so sweet, and so easy to shoot! I just had to tag along, and capture the cuteness as it came. We ended up at Scripps Pier in La Jolla, which is such a BEAUTIFUL spot to take family portraits! I had so much fun, and I was so excited to send them back home with a little piece of San Diego.
When I heard that Paul was in need of some head shots for his real estate career, I knew that I needed to be his girl! I have known Paul for a number of years, and knew that his lively and adventurous spirit belonged outside, and not in a stuffy studio, with head-shots that looked like they came from the 80s. I was hell bent and determined to prove my theory on him, and I sure do believe it worked!! We took some studio shots, “just because”, but spent most of our time running around downtown San Diego, looking for interesting backgrounds. I had so much fun shooting Paul, and am so thrilled to see some artistic flair break in to the real estate market!
I have known Aleesha since high school, so when her girlfriend Ashlyn asked me to be a part of her surprise proposal, I was THRILLED!! Catching a proposal on video, and film, is something that I would love to do a whole lot more of. It is such a genuine, and intimate part of a wedding story, and I feel like it is so often missed! My husband was able to catch our proposal on video, (thanks to a trusty point and shoot camera, and a tree), and it is one of my most prized and treasured possessions, so to be able to do that for someone else is just amazing!
Aleesha and Ashlyn frequented a cute little coffee shop named Cosmos for date nights, so it was only fitting for Ashlyn to pop the question right there. I got there ahead of time to set everything up, and then once I knew they were almost there, I set up post, hiding in the bathroom. When it was time to start rolling, Ashlyn shot a quick text, and I captured the whole thing without Aleesha being the wiser! As soon as they had their special moment together, I came out, and took some shots, and then we decided to celebrate with an engagement shoot right on the spot!
I had so much fun celebrating such a fun time with both of them, and wish them nothing but all the happiness in the world in the future!
