{ susan + ken // los angeles maternity photos }

Monday, July 20th, 2015

Susan and Ken are a couple that has made such a big impact during my years doing photography, and that I always think of with so much fondness and gratitude. I feel so fortunate not just to have photographed their engagement and wedding, but also lucky to have been able to stay in touch with them afterwards, thanks to the wonders of facebook and instagram. It’s been two years since their beautiful wedding day, but we managed to follow along on each other’s adventures this way and I was beyond ecstatic to learn that they were expecting. And even more excited when they contacted me to do a maternity session! These two are seriously some of the kindest souls you will ever meet, and to be able to document another milestone in their lives is such an honor.

Susan and Ken – congratulations! Can’t wait for the arrival of your little one!

I still can’t get over just how pretty this day was! Carrie and Terrence were married amongst a grove of oak trees in a day that was just such a joy to document. I appreciated how they really trusted me when it came to photos and allotted tons of time in the day for portraits, resulting in what are possibly some of my favorite portraits ever! As you can see, I did a terrible job of narrowing them down for this blog post, but I just can’t get enough of that amazing sparkly light, those dreamy colors, and all that joyful emotion. Carrie and Terrence really do have the sweetest personalities and I feel so lucky to know them!

Hope you enjoy this peek into their day!

I had so much fun with Van and Chris for their session, it seriously felt like hanging out with old friends! As ridiculously good looking these two are on the outside, let me just tell you that they have the hearts to match – they’re some of the nicest people you’ll ever meet and are just as fun as these photos suggest! We started off at the LA Arboretum and finished up at the historic Colorado Bridge. I love how we were able to combine the whimsy of the garden with the more dramatic look of the bridge, while keeping it all tied together with that light-filled, romantic feel that I adore :)

Can’t wait for their pretty summer wedding next month!
