Eric + Laurisa’s Engagement Shoot

Eric + Laurisa Engagement Session

Eric and Laurisa were on vacation when I met them. They were a long way from their comfortable home in Canada, staying in a hostel in the Gaslamp District when not out exploring San Diego. What’s more, they had just gotten engaged a couple days prior, and were eager to get some engagement shots. After chatting with them for a spell, we decided Ocean Beach would be the perfect place for a shoot.

Their time schedule was rather tight, and wanted to have their images within a couple of days before they flew off to Los Angeles; their next stop . I was only too happy to oblige; while we nibbled on an appetizer platter I sorted through their images, giving them a hand full of images to show off to their friends back home, and brag about their tans in the process.

Congratulations Eric and Laurisa, I wish you the best, and a lifetime of happy adventures together.

Here are a couple of teaser shots to feed your curiosity.

The love part is obvious, because Adam and Desiree truly love each other, but the laughter…that’s another story altogether. Simply put, Adam and Desiree’s wedding was one of the most hilarious, laugh out loud weddings I have had the honor of capturing…

Adam + Desiree Wedding Teaser

A&D Silhouetted

A Surprise At Every Turn

There is something very different about Adam and Desiree, the kind of different that makes one pause to recognize the vitality of this couple. Their love of life, and of each other is something that has to be witnessed first hand. They were wed on June 17, 2012 at The Rancho Vista Golf Course in Palmdale, California. This high energy wedding is one that will be long remembered by all who attended; and it was a pleasure to document and photograph.

So I shouldn’t have been surprised during the wedding reception as I was shooting; but I was. Their high spirits and gaiety was so infectious it was difficult at times not to curl up in a ball with laughter. Adam’s antics kept me on my toes too, one minute showing the loving tenderness of a proud new husband, the next, tearing up the dance floor with his own brand of hilarity. See for yourself…

Venice Beach provided the perfect location for Adam and Desiree’s engagement shoot last weekend. We spent the afternoon shooting away, and as the sun began to set, the sky exploded with color, giving the couple a spectacular sunset to cap off the session.
