Ben and Jaclyn: Engaged!

Posted on March 30th, by admin in COUPLES. No Comments

Where do I even begin to introduce this beautiful couple? Jaclyn and I have been friends all throughout college, even when New Jersey stole her away for the last few years. But that’s okay, I’ll forgive New Jersey, because it was there that she met her soon to be husband Ben. I can still remember the phone call I got when she called all of us girls back in here in California just weeks after she moved to attend choir college telling us all about this amazing guy she met- his charming personality, his astounding voice, his rugged beard- and how she loved spending time with him. It wasn’t long after that when they officially started dating. We knew things had gotten pretty serious when he came home with her during the holidays to meet her family and of course her best friends. Poor guy had to be so nervous to meet all of us at once at a game night hours after their flight got in. But sure enough one look at the two of them together and we all knew they had each found ‘the one.’ Ben is such a gentleman and beyond loving towards Jaclyn, and the way Jaclyn speaks about Ben you can hear the respect and admiration in her voice.  I’m so honored to be part of their special day this July where I’ll stand up there with all of the other bridesmaids watching as one of my best friends marries her true best friend. So without further ado here are the photographs I took of these two love birds in Sierra Madre.

Chelsea and Daniel- Just for Fun Shoot

Posted on March 16th, by admin in COUPLES. No Comments
Often times people think that in order to get photos taken of themselves or their family it needs to be some special occasion. Well, that’s just simply not the case. :) I was able to do this “just for fun” photo shoot with Chelsea and Daniel and we had such a blast taking pictures under a grove of lemon trees, running through a wide open field, and playing in the last few hours of the sun before it set. These pictures make my heart so incredibly happy, seeing the love these two have for each other. I can’t believe it was almost two years ago that I watched these two get married. I hope these fill your heart with joy like they do mine. Enjoy :)

Washington State: Trip to Victoria, Canada (Pt. 3)

Posted on March 15th, by admin in Uncategorized. No Comments

Happy Thursday everyone! It seems as though I have a bunch of photoshoots that I’ve gotten behind on blogging. Here is the last set of images from my trip to Washington state. If you missed part 1 and part 2, you can find images from Seattle here, or my images from Neah Bay here.

Chelsey lives in Port Angeles, a city in Washington that is so north of the state that you can see Canada from across the channel on a clear day. She always wanted to go there, so we decided it would be fun to take a day trip while I visited. It’s only a ferry ride away and we figured why not? I’m so glad we ended up going because we had such a blast exploring the streets of Victoria and even visiting Craigdarroch Castle; the home of a super rich family that lived in Victoria a century ago. And let me tell you, a soap opera has nothing on the history of this eccentric family. After the few mile walk to the castle and back we worked up quite an appetite and decided to check out a local bar for some lunch. The bar we ended up at had the BEST onion rings we ever tasted and some really delicious pulled pork sandwiches.

Anyways, here’s the rest of the images from my trip, and be on the look out for a post later today featuring my lovely sister and her husband. :)
