Palm Springs Engagement Session

Palm Springs Engagement Session

Palm Springs is one of my absolute favorite places to photograph! Whether it’s a wedding or engagement session, there is something about the desert Palm Springs lighting that is completely different from anywhere else in Southern California.

When Amira and Shahed reached out to me for their engagement photos, I immediately knew I would hit it off with these two. They’re hilarious, cool, and totally and completely in love with each other. Even better, we discovered that we live literally two blocks from each other! Whaaat??? Insane.

Even though it was 116 degrees on the day of our shoot, these two were AWESOME and killed it!!! We had so much fun running around Palm Springs, including a quick stop at the Moorten Botanical Gardens.

SmogShoppe Los Angeles Wedding

SmogShoppe in Los Angeles is likely one of the coolest wedding venues I have ever been to. What was once a 1980s smog-check center, SmogShoppe is now a solar-powered indoor/outdoor haven for desert plants, vertical gardens and chic vintage furnishings. It is quintessentially California in every way and I freakin’ LOVE IT.

From the moment I met Marivic and Anthony, I knew we would be a great fit for each other. These two high school sweet hearts are love Disney, musicals, and compliment each other with the perfect blend of sarcasm and hilarious fun. We had a BLAST running around their hometown of Torrance for their engagement shoot.

When it came to their wedding day, it was nothing less than beautiful. Surrounded by their family and friends, their wedding was filled with so much love and joy. I am so honored to have had the incredible job of capturing their memories.
