Not going to lie – I miss the big city a bit. Having lived in Chicago for a few years with instant urbanosity at our finger tips, I’m in a bit of withdrawal from the tall buildings, textures, and architectural lines. Here in San Diego it’s just beach beach beach with a pinch of Balboa Park. Yeah yeah, I know those areas are all amazing and pretty, but sometimes I just want to get on the mean streets.  While San Diego does have a downtown area it’s just not like Los Angeles. So when Jin and Feng suggested we center their engagement session around the Walt Disney Concert Hall we were all in. Now Jin and Feng may have told us they were in consulting and marketing, but I’m not fooled.  They are models.  I noticed early on that right as I would be about to tell them how to pose they would just do something that was way better than what I was thinking.  Thanks for being so easy to photograph you guys and sorry for blowing your covers.


Gina and Gasper’s story began four years ago when Gina was socializing with friends, and was handed a phone to keep someone company that she’d never met. Awkward phone hand-offs usually just last a few minutes, these two didn’t put the phone down for an hour. When I think about how all of our couple’s meet, this is one of my favorite stories. Gasper made it even better by keeping the phone (extremely outdated only four years later) and delivering it to Gina as a gift the day of the wedding. The phone makes an appearance further down in this post, but you probably won’t be yearning to give up your iPhone for it.

Holy crap this was a fun wedding. The event was beautifully decorated with a vintage Hollywood travel theme that fit in perfectly with the old world quirk of the Sportmen’s Lodge in Studio City. Their hilarious ceremony featured a live Facebook relationship status update, and the the reception… what can I even say? It was like an episode of So You Think You Can Dance, only it lasted 3 hours. Gina and Gasper are freakin’ awesome and they need to get married again some more. Let’s rock out in Studio City.

    I have to post this blog again because I’m having the hardest time choosing from the 1,219 photos on the photographer’s website….what to print! Yikes! Gorgeous and keeps reminding me what a fabulous time we had. I’m pretty sure 600 of the photos include Gina or Gasper laughing! So fun. Soooo, their blog tells the story for friends near and far.ReplyCancel

    Wow! That was incredible. What an awesome way to share the photos!ReplyCancel

We met up with Krysta and Bryan to explore a couple of spots I’d seen awhile back that I knew I wanted to utilize for a portrait session. They actually turned out to be more bad ass than I remembered – I mean those orange flowers were definitely an unexpected bonus. San Diego’s funny, you never really know what is going to bloom up out of nowhere. After we got our nature on, we headed into North Park – which is by far my most favorite parts of San Diego to shoot. Just love the murals, walls, and general urban feeling of it all. Can’t wait to see these guys in just a few short days for the wedding!


Clouds that wanted to be dramatic – a heart shaped balloon that didn’t like the idea of floating – a sprinkle of rain when supposedly there was 0% chance of precipitation. None of these factors put a damper on Melissa and John’s makeout engagement session in Balboa Park. It was almost as if these two had a great time or something…
