Hell Yeah Balloons are Punk Rock
February 2, 2010
Anthony & Shealyn were actually not engaged at the time the session took place. However, just a week after the shoot they realized that they just could not live without each other and got engaged! I am so smitten with this session – the purple and yellow look oh so fabulous together and the couple are too damn funky for words. Photographer Sheri told me all about the day:
Other than specifying that they’d like incorporate purple balloons (which Anthony brought to Shealyn on their first date) we were left to our own creative devices. I was inspired by their edgy style and chose backdrops that would make them pop. I like the contrast of their hard, black style against the softness of the beach and the lightheartedness of the balloons.
We walked back to their apartment and they suggested hopping into the pool… mind you this was early January and cold even by San Diego standards.
Thanks to Sheri for sharing these shoot with us…and I have to say I totally love Shealyn’s dress which actually came from the Miley Cyrus/Max Azria for Wal-Mart! Rock n Roll indeedy.

‘Til Death Do Us Party Wedding Shoot: Angelo & Rin
July 22, 2011
"Angelo and I were super lucky to have design/photography duo Everywhere We Shoot on board to do our prenup photography," bride-to-be Rin writes. "These guys are friends who frequent the same gigs, art spaces, and thrift shops that we go to. Their philosophy has always been to keep doing and creating, not for money, but just because they love what they do. And knowing that we were on a budget-DIY-wedding, they agreed to do a pro bono engagement shoot for us in a heartbeat. I was also blessed to have a former schoolmate slash band groupie of mine, Kitty Caragay, do my make-up."
A Mixed Media Engagement Shoot: Francis & Mayone
July 10, 2012
If you want to see photography that pushes boundaries then look no further than MangoRED. This Filipino duo have been pushing my buttons ever since I first discovered them waaaaay back at the beginning of 2009. Their work continues to inspire me to this day. Why? Because they're continually pushing themselves to create. Their work has evolved - almost into a completely different beast - but the essence of unadulterated and unapologetic creativity has remained a constant.
An Urban Beach Engagement Shoot: Jeni & Manny
May 15, 2012
I don't feature a while load of engagement sessions on my blog, but I simply couldn't resist Jeni & Manny's urban beach session. "When Boston make up artist/hair stylist extraordinaire, Jeni Teran, contacted me regarding engagement photos with her fiancé, I immediately started brainstorming!" wedding photographer Shannon Grant told me. "How would I do justice to such a sweet and (ahem) gorgeous couple?"
