Crystal Cove Beach | Family Photographer

Be free.  Have fun.  I shot Andra and Hans’ destination wedding in Sun Valley,  Idaho over 8 yeas ago.  They now live on the east coast, and on their travels out to CA we set up this family photo shoot.  Such and honor and pleasure spending time with my couples, and watching their families grow.

This video gives you a good feel of how I like to approach a family photo session.  After we get the “smiling for the camera,” the real fun begins when you let loose, have fun, and let the kids be kids, they won’t be that way for long.  Capture who they truly are now, at this age.

How to Plan a Surprise Proposal

Matt’s proposal to Rachel Featured in How They Asked by The Knot. Matt informed Rachel that his “Crazy Aunt”  was coming into town and he wanted them to meet.  Under the guise of dinner at a fancy place, Rachel dressed up.  This spot is very special to them ( one of their first dates).  He brought a bottle of wine and said he wanted to visit the spot before dinner to take the edge off before meeting Crazy Aunt!
