Bruno & Amanda - Laguna Beach Engagement

Definitely one of the best parts about being a wedding photographer is meeting couples that were at one point merely strangers, who then become more than just your 'clients', but friends who share with you a part of their unique journey. And what about that golden hour in these images! The strong but gentle warm light truly portrays the romance between these two.  What an awesome time I had hanging out with Bruno & Amanda for our sunset session.

Enjoy the photos!

(Also, check out my long exposure image below with Bruno & Amanda standing on the tide pools of Laguna Beach.  One of my favorite things to photograph is long exposure seascapes. And what could only make it better is by having a rad couple like @brunoyaz and @amanda_katlyn_ get their feet wet for a stunning long exposure portrait. 💜💜)



Balboa Beach Wedding

The weather for our couples wedding day here on Balboa Island (Newport Beach) was pouring rain, and with the ceremony to be held outside I was ready for plan B.   I had my rain proof plastic camera sleeves ready to go and the groom's family had purchased a few dozen umbrellas for the guests just in case.  Miraculously, 30 minutes before the ceremony was going to take commence, the rain stopped and the sky cleared!  The sun light was perfect and beautiful which only complemented the intimate wedding and the lovely bride and groom, Ryan and Nadia.  It was such an honor to be a part of their wedding day.

A quick back story on Nadia and Ryan.  Nadia is originally from Chile where she met her husband Ryan while he was down there on a surf trip. Although he only was expecting to catch some good waves he ended up meeting his future wife who then moved back with him to California.  Imagine leaving your family, friends, country, and coming to a brand new place where you only know your future husband and where you are still learning the language. Yes love is wonderful but at the same time there are sacrifices that have to be made to keep it strong given all of life's surprises and challenges.  I'm no expert at love or with relationships but that's been a realization I've had by just getting to know Ryan and Nadia.  Both of them are now my friends.  We will hang out and do a beach day or just hang out and eat bomb homemade Chilean food at their place.  🇨🇱🌶💙

5000 miles from home to marry her husband.
