Abi + Ryan | just plain hot

I danced and smiled all weekend long as I played with my new 5-Delicious.

I figured the best way to get acquainted with my new friend was to test its skills out on a few fun shoots. A little styling and location scouting quickly ensued and the sucker was put to the test.
All I have to say is move over Ewan... EOS-5d had replaced you as my new crush.


So, you may be familiar with Abi and Ryan....
Abi was on the front page of my very first website.


then last summer they asked for me to shoot a one year session....




And this year they asked for a two year session.
Not only are these two beautiful people with hearts of gold, but I am proud to call them friends. What started through photography has grown into a friendship I am truly thankful for. In the last year, Abi has decided to pursue photography herself and not only is her biz totally taking off, but she is grooming Ryan as her assistant. (plus she has graced me with her presence on all my LA weddings this summer...she is seriously FABULOUS!)


so my friends, year two...

Loved the slideshow! There is one thing in common in all your shoots. It's not your style, it's not the lighting or what type of camera you use that sets you apart. It's you personality that shines through your clients. You make everyone feel so comfortable and you see how much fun your clients have with you. I can't help but hear your laugh behind the camera as I look at these. Good job. K
