Secret proposal at Sunset Cliffs, San Diego

Bryan and Brittany from Massachusetts were vacationing in San Diego and Bryan contacted me to help him pick a place for a secret proposal and take some pictures of that special moment for these two.

Brittany had no idea and was genuinely surprised. After being with someone for 8 years I would have lost hope if I were Brittany but this girl was in no rush.

This is probably one of the most rewarding moments about being a photographer: capturing a beautiful display of love, and I hope these pictures will help this sweet couple keep memories of that night for a long time <3

Justin and Amanda, photoshoot at Pacific beach

As Justin was getting ready for his first competition in NPC's Classic Physique, he wanted to capture some of that hard work he has been putting on. It is amazing and really admirable how certain people can push their limits farther and look like a cover of Men's Fitness Magazine, isn't?

For this shoot, we partnered with a local makeup artist Chrisanne Rossi who did an amazing job not just with Amanda's makeup but she also did some countour on Justin.

I loved working with this fun couple! 

Lisa and Andre, photoshoot in Seaport village

Distance means so little when someone means so much.

These two touched my soul. Their love is so radiant and I got to be a part of that.  This beautiful couple, Lisa and Andre, currently do not get to see each other often since Andre spends most of his time deployed in Asia. 

We met in San Diego's Seaport village to capture some of their rare moments together. How ridiculously good looking is this couple??

Veronika and Kolya, couples photoshoot in La Jolla, CA

The best thing to hold onto in life, is each other.

Photoshoot with these two love birds at Scripps Institution of Oceanography and then Scripps beach was a breeze. It was the first shoot Veronika and Kolya did as a couple, and hopefully there will be many more to come <3

Josie and Dave Rancho Santa Fe picnic

Josie and Dave are newlyweds and good friends of mine. For the shoot, we met at Fairbanks Ranch Country Club, an absolutely breathtaking, luxurious premier resort-style private property in Rancho Santa Fe, San Diego. The picnic basket was not just a prop, Josie has actually packed some yummies for this photoshoot and we enjoyed snacks and drinks as the sun was setting down.
