The day is warm and beautiful. James arrives at the park fashionably late. He walks over to his good friend Marisa to say hello. Standing with Marisa is Jihan, Marisa introduces James to Jihan. James nervously says hello and walks away to hang out with some of his friends. While chatting with the boys James could not help but to glance over at Jihan every few minutes that day…
Fast forward two years later… The doorbell rings, it’s James, arriving at the same luncheon that Jihan was invited to. The two talked, laughed and talked some more. By the end of the luncheon, James rounded up enough courage to ask Jihan out to Starbucks to get to know each other better. By the end of the Starbucks date they both felt a real connection.
After several months of courtship, Jihan realized this was the man she would marry.
James & Jihan will become one on December 20th, 2008 amongst their closet family and friends.
I can’t wait for your wedding day! The two of you are truly a match that was made in heaven!

Brandon and Jennifer met working together at Lascari’s. She was 16 and he was 20. They Considered dating, but since she was still so young and in high school and were both at different places in their lives, they both decided it would be best for them to just be friends. They stayed friends and continued working with each other. After she graduated high school they started hanging out a lot more. On New Years 2005 they were both at a NYE party and both didnt have anyone to share a kiss with at midnight, so when the clock hit 12, they decided, “what the hell” and went for the kiss. They have been together ever since then.
On April of 2010, Brandon planned a birthday party for Jennifer down in Newport Beach with her my friends. They all arranged to go on a Yacht around Newport harbor and celebrate. Mid way through dancing and drinking Brandon asked Jennifer to come up to the top of the Yacht. He seemed really nervous and she was very curious to why he was acting so weird. He then told me how much he loved her and got down on one knee and asked her to marry him in front of all our friends. It was a very special moment. Jennifer was completely shocked! He had to ask her a second time because she thought it was all some sort of mean joke. She was caught completely off guard. She  obviously said yes and the rest is history!!!

Little did these two know that the restaurant they worked for will one day be catering their wedding, but that’s for a later topic, today we’re allowing you to be part of Brandon and Jennifer’s Fullerton Engagement Session.

We photographed Brandon and Jennifer at the SOCO district in the downtown fullerton. Later in the afternoon the background and cold weather brought out their affection and which made for some very sweet and romantic photos.

Brandon and Jennifer will be getting married at the Fullerton Arboretum.

Well lets just say these two were sleepless in Seattle! At least the night they met.  :)  See Scott is a huge Galaxy fan. (Soccer) He’s a season ticket holder.  He decided to look at their away schedule and realized that Seattle would be a great place to travel for a quick weekend trip.  So he and a friend went for it.

Michelle with a large group of friends decided to shoot up to Seattle for a fun filled weekend of friends, fun and soccer.  After the game, Michelle and her friends decided to go to the local stadium tavern next to Seattle stadium.  Being that they were all from LA, they were the only Galaxy fans in the building.  So Scott and his friend, while at the bar not knowing anyone else there, found a great way to cruise on over to the table where Michelle and all of her Galaxy friends were.

Michelle playing a little hard to get, finally started to chat Scott up and they talked all evening long. The rest is history. When Scott and Michelle hired our studio they thought it would be a great idea to go back to Seattle. The city in which they met, to photograph their Engagement Session.

Never having been there myself I decided to get there as early as possible  to scout the area for their shoot. Luckily people in Seattle are really nice and helpful!  :) Here are some of the images from our fun Seattle Washington engagement shoot. I hope that you enjoy them as much as the time i had Photographing them.

Travis’ proposal was probably one of the craziest we’ve ever heard of. Picture this, Stephanie was on a Hawaiian beach by herself and her 007-esque Travis drops in with a helicopter on a special mission. Her mission, should she choose to accept it, was to be his partner for the rest of his life.
She accepted her mission and that brings us to today.
We spent a day together visiting locations that both Travis and Stephanie chose for their engagement session.
On our escapades they brought along Layla and Ellis, two adorable “monsters” as Travis calls them.
I love this set of images.  It really shows how diverse fullerton really is. We started at Vill Del Sol, then worked our way around the  city. We were able to capture a little bit of everything.  From an urban feel to a outdoor, woodsy feel.  Travis & Stephanie started out a little nervous but after a few minutes they both warmed up to the camera and had a great time.  Thanks you two for allowing me to take these great images of you.  :)
Travis and Stephanie will be Having their wedding at the beautiful Villa Del Sol in Downtown Fullerton Ca. We look forward to capturing many amazing wedding day photos for them.
