Intimate South Bay Backyard Wedding

Sean & Joy || South Bay Wedding

It was a quiet Friday in February when these two decided to officially tie the knot. Sean & Joy had been together for a couple years and knew for a long time that they wanted to spend the rest of their lives together. They talked about doing a big elaborate wedding, or eloping, or even doing a destination wedding. They talked about simply going to the pastor's office upstairs at their church and making it official. 

They decided to have an intimate backyard ceremony with both of their families and it was perfect. 

Sean and Joy, we couldn't be more happy for you both. It is so obvious how much love you have for each other and how much joy you bring one another. You both are adorable and we wish you the best as husband and wife! We love you!

XO

Jenny & Ellis

PS

Sean happens to be Jenny's brother-in-law which made it that much sweeter!

Palos Verdes Beach Engagement Session

Ryan & Ashley || Palos Verdes Engagement Session

The wind was blowing and the sun was setting at the beach in Palos Verdes. We asked them to walk by the water despite it being cold and having already numb toes. They responded, "yes!" without hesitation. They walked through the water while giggling and being absolutely adorable. 

"Yes, of course" without hesitation was the attitude from these two. They were so sweet and up for anything. They have been together for 8 years, but still act like they're crushing on each other!

Ryan & Ashley, we had so much fun capturing this special season in your lives and CANNOT wait for your wedding this summer. It will be beautiful & the perfect day.

Sean + Joy

Proposal || Palos Verdes

This goes in our books as one of the cutest sessions ever! Sean met with us a few weeks ago and set up a "fake" photo shoot where we convinced Joy that we were just taking them to scout locations and practice posing. She had NO idea. Well, she may or may not have found a jewelry receipt in Sean's car beforehand (SEAN!?!) so she was not completely fooled. BUT! It was still absolutely adorable as you can see in her sweet reactions below. Sean and Joy are one of those couples that just ooze love and laughter whenever they are together. They are SO perfect for each other and have such a sweet friendship. We are so excited for them to become husband and wife and for the plans God has for them through marriage!!

Laura & Adriane

Engagement Session || Palos Verdes

This engagement session was so.much.fun!! These two were willing to crawl up on rocks and hop over fences in order to get the shot and needless to say, we were stoked. We have known Laura & her family for a long time, in fact, Laura's mom played a huge role in each of our weddings to ensure they ran smoothly! (Thanks again, Theresa! <3) 

It was so fun getting to hear more about how Adriane proposed and all of the behind the scenes Laura didn't get to know about until later. We can't wait until June when these two tie the knot! It's clear these two just adore each other and it was such an honor to be able to capture some of that love & adoration.

Maddie & Hugo

Engagement || Griffith Observatory, Los Angeles

When was the last time that you watched the sunrise? We wouldn't have been able to answer that question before this shoot! Maddie & Hugo were such troopers and met us at Griffith Observatory while it was still dark (but the view was AMAZING with all of the city lights!). We were able to capture these two and their adorable googly eyes for each other while the sun was rising behind them. It was magical!! We have pretty much watched Maddie grow up, so it was SO special being able to spend this time with Hugo and Maddie, capturing this exciting season in their lives. They are so kindhearted not only to one another but to those around them. We are so excited to see what God has in store for them!
