Super Fun and Playful Engagement Portrait Session in Los Angeles, California

This is, hands down, one of my absolute favorite engagement sessions ever. It was an incredibly evening in Los Angeles and Devin and Martha made it so easy for me to capture such a fun time in their lives. Martha's semi nervous yet infectious giggle made for some of the most natural, fun, carefree portraits ever. Their willingness to follow my instruction throughout the evening, even when our locations had to be switched mid-shoot and ending with us running up like seven (felt like 10) flights of stairs to the empty rooftop of a hospital parking structure to catch the last light over Los Angeles was simply awesome. To say that I am looking forward to their wedding in a few months would be a complete understatement. It is going to be crazy beautiful and I can't wait to photograph more of the laughter and genuine happiness that is Devin and Martha.

** Sidenote... SUNDAY is the day. Don't miss out on the official announcement of the winning couple of the free wedding photography giveaway!

Every year there is a little bit of dread when putting this year-end review post together. It is overwhelming. The amount of images to go though, choosing my favorites, and putting it all together... but once it is done it makes me so happy to look back at everything and relive those moments from the past year.

Instead of writing a huge post I want to simply extend a gigantic THANK YOU to everyone who trusted me with their precious moments from this past year (and beyond). You made my year one for the books. You all have made both my personal and professional life better and I hope the images we created together live on for you to enjoy for years to come.

The images below were chosen because of the connection I have with them. For me, not every image has to be technically perfect. It is more important that it makes you feel something... it may be the composition, color, moment, overall feeling. I hope you enjoy them. 

Here is to a great 2015 and to an even better 2016! Let the adventure begin!

The last image needs a caption... This photo was taken from Jason and my backyard from our first home together as homeowners. I stood outside on December 31st to capture the last light of the year as the sun set over Mt. Bachelor and brought 2015 to a gorgeous end :)
