Sewit's Santa Ana Courthouse Elopement

Sewit found me on Google thanks to my blog of Kelly’s Santa Ana courthouse elopement. I was so happy to be able to photograph another marriage at Santa Ana courthouse. The time of the day was different though so the sun light shining to the staircase was different as well. Thanks to that, I was able to capture their elopement in another perspective. Being a photographer, you can hit creative block quite often. Photographing weddings at the same venue multiple times definitely does not help. The lighting is something we can change around and make the photos look stand out for each couple. A friend reached out to me to be their wedding photographer here at Santa Ana courthouse at the end of this year. Cannot wait to produce another work that aren’t exactly the same as the ones that I did so far.

If you ever fancy an elopement at Santa Ana courthouse or any courthouse in LA/OC county, feel free to reach out to me anytime. We would love to be your photographer.

Yael and Issac's engagement session at El Matador State Beach, CA

Few weeks ago, Simon and I were able to capture Yael and Issac’s beautiful engagement photos at El Matador State Beach in Malibu. Everything did not go smoothly initially because I dropped my phone into the Honey Bucket toilet. OMG, I really cannot believe I just admit this to the internet world but I did guys. Needless to say, it was disgusting. The guy in the other Honey Bucket literally laughed when he heard me telling Simon that. Everyone was offering me a stick and hand wipes. We obviously got a lot of attention afterward lol. However, the session went great and I was able to capture one of my favorite beach engagement session ever. Seriously guys, the light was perfect. The couple was perfect. Their chemistry was way more than perfect. I am just so glad they let me be their photographer and capture their engagement photo session. I’m a little sad that we cannot be their wedding photographer since they are having one in Mexico City but I’m happy for them though. They are going to be the cutest couple on their wedding day. They are so easy to work with and their wedding photographers will have no problem at all taking beautiful photos of them. Again, if you love our work and are looking for a wedding photographer, we would loveeeeeee to be considered. We are located in Los Angeles and also travel anywhereb as long as you want to hire us.

Urban Engagement Photo Session in Cocoa Village, Florida

Vi and her husband came down to visit from Missouri and wanted to do a more casual relax engagement/anniversary session with me in Cocoa Village. We had so much fun just strolling around and taking photos. Don’t you love that little girl’s facial expression of them eating ice cream? I thought it was super uber cute. If you are looking for some modern urban look or idea for your engagement photo session, here you go! And if you are looking for an engagement photographer for your session in Cocoa Beach, Brevard county area, I would love to be considered!

Andru + Liz Intimate Wedding at The Tides Collocated Club, Patrick Air-force Base

We've heard of the venue, The Tides Club by Patrick Air Force Base on several occasions. Thanks to Andru and Liz, we finally had a chance to photograph it there. We were amazed at how beautifully the place was decorated indoor. If you are looking for an intimate and simple wedding venue, this is the place. 

We couldn't capture bride and groom portrait at the beach that day because of the rough wind but somehow we made it work. I think this backdrop is even prettier than the beach. This is why hiring a professional wedding photographer is important. We are here to create magic for you. Hope you will enjoy looking at Andru and Liz's beautiful wedding photos. We wish you were there to feel the love they have had for each other. They were really gentle, affectionate and sweet. We just adore all of the couples we have had the chance to work with.

Guinevere & Tyler Intimate Wedding at Harry P. Leu Gardens, Orlando

Guinevere and Tyler were the very first clients who adored our work and trusted us to be their wedding photographers. I still remember for 7 months straight I couldn't stop thinking about how exciting it would be to be part of their big day, especially at Harry P.Leu Gardens in Orlando. Their wedding was intimately small and sweet. That made us feel more like being part of their close friends and family than just a wedding vendor. We also have to add that Harry P.Leu Gardens is a stunningly beautiful venue for anyone who is looking for an intimate place to get married. We were so impressed by the beauty of the wedding venue the entire time. 

We will be forever grateful that Guinevere and Tyler hired us to be their wedding photographers. They make a wonderful family. Hopefully, we would be able to work again in the future. 

We hope you would enjoy looking through those photographs as much as we do. 

Romantic Engagement Session at Pelican Cove Park, Rancho Palos Verdes

Nicole showed interest about taking photos under the waves of the oceans similarly to the ones I’ve done before. Of course, I was like uh yeahhhh. I would totally be down to do that again. It was so much fun and I obviously lost my voice afterward . Recently moved to Los Angeles from Cocoa Beach, I was really happy to be able to photograph my lovely clients at refreshing location. Pelican Cove Park was a great choice for engagement photo session location. You do need to hike down to get the the beach for about 15 minutes. We had so much fun doing the session. If you are looking for a wedding photographer or engagement photographer in Los Angeles and surrounding areas, we would love to be considered!

Maura and Joseph's Glamour Wedding at Loft .84 in Riverside, CA

Maura and Joseph's wedding in April was our first wedding of the year 2018 and I couldn't ask for a better one. It was beautifully decorated at Loft .84 in Riverside, CA. The venue, Loft .84, is a historical building and you have to be there to see how amazing it looks. Besides the venue and stunning work of the florist, the wedding party were hot. Seriously, photographing a big wedding party is difficult but they made it so much easier for us. 

I'm still so happy to this day that they let us be their wedding photographer and videographer. Not only that, Maura and Joseph always trusted our vision and followed our lead. That really helped us to be more creative with our work. 

Florida Boho Estate Stylized Shoot at Banyan Estate

I always wanted to do a Boho wedding styled shoot for a really long time. I finally got the courage to gather all the local vendors to team up and make this happen. Everyone was extremely talented and did a wonderful job. 

It took us over a month for planning and making the ideas a reality. Shout out to Tara from Stimula Event Design who planned out all the decor ideas and helped me keep everything on track. I would have been able to do this without her. Thank you Glenda from Miss Cuppy Cakes who brought extra cup cakes for us at the shoot and of course her jaw-drop naked wedding cake. Susan, our florist from What Really Matters really blew us away with her stunning wedding bouquet and wretch. The models could not have looked that beautiful without the help of Heather from Beachside Beauty Bar. The whole session would not have been successful without the setup and decorations of Joy and her company, Timeless Vintage. 

Banyan Estate is a fairly new wedding venue in Palm Bay, Florida. It was renovated from an old high school in the area. The best part is you can have either outdoor and indoor ceremony or reception depends on your need. The place is stunning and I am sure, brides will love this venue.

Yanira and Octavio Beverly Hill Courthouse Elopement

I had my first courthouse elopement at Beverly Hills Courthouse last Friday and it was so intimate, raw and beautiful. I couldn't be anymore touched to be the only witness in the room with them. Seeing them becoming husband and wife made my heart flustered. I love this job and feel enormously fortunate when they chose me, not anyone else to photograph their lifetime event. Congratulations again Yanira and Octavio.

Did I forget to add we went to Taco Bell afterward to celebrate?
