This is an extra special post for me! I’ve known about Hannah since I was in middle school through a mutual friend, fast forward several  years and we find ourselves coincidentally in the same dorm at UCI! What’s even more bizarre is Hannah and I have the same exact names, albeit we spell our first and last names differently. This was the start of our very beautiful friendship and many years of being roommates while confusing everyone around us! (Which Han(n)a(h) are you looking for? Korean? Chinese? Short? Tall? Banana? Bear?)

What makes this story of Hannah + Albert even more special is I think I can confidently say I was a huge factor in bringing them together! Matchmaking victory! Let’s just say potluck, a friend bringing a friend, and the following week I so conveniently left a hang out at D&B asking Albert to give Hannah a ride home *wink* The rest is history!

I can’t wait to be part of their big day as a bridesmaid! What an honor it is and will be!!! Although I can’t photograph their wedding I was able to do their engagement shoot. A quick shoot around San Francisco. Counting down the days until your wedding!

A long long time ago, when I worked in an office, Jenn & I were coworkers! It was fun to hear about her boyfriend at the time and I was even more thrilled when she told me she was getting married and asked me to photograph her engagement session. I was back in one of my favorite spots in Orange County to shoot their engagement session. Congrats on your recent marriage! I wish you and Chris much happiness & love!!!

I knew this engagement session would be awesome from the moment I saw that Jin + Naomi = Jinomi! We had a fun-filled day trekking around San Francisco exploring areas I’ve never been too and revisiting old ones. We were so worried the week before because the weather had been horrible, but it cleared up and was so beautiful for that one day. The next day crazy storms hit for the entire week!

Meet Jinomi!

Jin wanted photos with graffiti so we headed over to the Mission District. They seriously have some amazing murals!

Of course we had to stop and get some burritos!!!

This next set of photos makes me laugh so much. Naomi cut the cutest paper hearts out so we could throw them, but we probably took these photos 10+ times because each time the paper hearts flew towards Jin’s face he would cringe! In the end we just told him to look at Naomi so he wouldn’t see all those hearts flying towards him!

Jin loves his iPhone. He converted Naomi.

One of my favorites!

A lil fun with my lensbaby.

I am thrilled to share this engagement session with everyone!!!  Not only because they look so freaking amazing, but because it’s the first session I’m showing you guys that I shot with my new baby, the Nikon D3s!  This camera = a little bit of heaven for me!

I love love love love this very classic looking San Francisco engagement shoot, we started off at their super chic place where we played with their cats and went to the rooftop to view the city on such a beautiful day. Then we ended up going all over the city where we braved the freezing weather,  especially when we did some photos at night!  Since this shoot they had the most beautiful ceremony at this gorgeous location in Carmel that I’m equally excited to share with you all soon!

Cole and Bianca contacted me to shoot their Orange County engagement session + wedding! They specifically asked to have a very fun, not too lovey dovey engagement session. They were actually saving their first real kiss for their wedding day, which I witness & photographed and it went flawlessly!!!!! I love the vibe of this session and I think it really fit their personalities perfectly!

Yes…they climbed up this giant orange tree….! I was praying they wouldn’t fall off!

The spot where they had their DTR (define the relationship for those who don’t know what it means) 🙂 So cute!

Can’t wait to blog their beautiful wedding soon!
