Ever meet someone that's smiling almost all the time? That's Delia - and her smile is insanely contagious. When I photographed her and John at their engagement session at UCSD earlier this year, she brought out the most genuine, awesome laughter and expressions from John that it made the session almost *too* easy.

Before I took my trip, I was lucky enough to book a session with Caroline & Jesse...Read More
So, when I first met Cara & Patrick, I immediately felt a little intimidated - Patrick is tall, has his head shaved, and is a veteran of the Marines, while Cara is a world-traveler and looks like a model. But after chatting with them for a few minutes on our way to the first location at their engagement session, I realized what an awesome couple they were.

I met Juli & Harold last year when meeting with them to chat about their wedding. It didn't take long for us to warm up to each other, and after a little coaching in front of the camera, these two blew me away with how comfortable they looked in front of the camera. Check out a small preview of their Poway engagement session below and keep an eye peeled for their intimate wedding at Frank Sinatra's old mansion later this year!
Nicole & Joseph met up with me at Sunset Beach for a quick couple's session since Joseph recently got back from deployment. We hiked along Sunset Cliffs (and through some shady alleyways) and got some awesome photos at the peak of golden hour. Check out a small selection of their session below.Read More
