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.

XO Jenny & Ellis

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!

Ben & Kathleen

Engagement Shoot || Palos Verdes, CA

These love birds are near and dear to our hearts because we have pretty much watched Kathleen grow up. Not only that but Ellis and Kathleen became sistas when Ellis married Kathleen's brother, Johnny, a few years ago. AKA these two mean a lot to us! Being able to capture this special time for them was such an honor. This season is filled with endless to do lists & decisions, pink flamingo floaties in Palm Springs (ladies Bach weekend!), delicious cake tastings, finalizing honeymoon plans, and dreaming of what it will be like to finally be a wife or a husband. It was so special to pause and take the time to photograph their little love story!
