Ariana + Dany | engaged

4 shoots in three days + travel between East and West Coast + a bout with the stomach flu= WAY behind on blogging.
But alas, Session #1 from last weekend is finally up! YAY!

May I just take a moment to reiterate how much I LOVE LOVE LOVE my "job"? I am so ridiculously blessed to have the opportunity to do what makes me come alive and actually make a living doing it. What more could a girl ask for?! May I also just say 'Thank You' again to every client(friend) past, present, and future who has offered me the opportunity to wake up every morning even more in love with life? Thank you for making ME smile.

Now, on to pictures!

I flew out to LA last weekend for a wedding and was able to squeeze in a few engagement shoots also... I met up with Dany and Ariana at the San Gabriel Mission in like 100 degree weather... it was hecka HOT but these two did great!
Ariana works in the fashion industry out in LA, so it was a great opportunity to have a little "fashion-fun".



Ariana, here is your fashion man ;)




The contagious couple...










This is my favorite shot of the day. Ariana mentioned that one of her favorite things was how Dany would always randomly grab and kiss her hand.... Its the sweet tenderness that makes me smile. Obviously I love fashion-y stuff, but it's random moments like this which hold a story and encapsulate a memory that really get me :)




Special thanks to the amazing Abby who came along for all my shoots that weekend... she ROCKS my socks off. :)
