Adorable Anna with her Proud Parents, Dogs and Grandma!

3.5 years ago I photographed Elisa & George’s awesome wedding….. fast forward to now…. and here’s their incredible growing family, German Shepherds and all! It’s such an honor to be called back after all these years. I love being able to see families grow and to capture them with my camera.

Anna is soooooooo cute… I can’t get over it.  Her smile and chubby legs are contagious and inspiring. Here are a few of my most favorite images from their first family photos session in Pasadena, CA.

The London West Hollywood Wedding {Jenn & Leo} | Part 1

Meet the sweet and handsome couple, Jenn & Leo! They were wed at the iconic London Hotel in West Hollywood by the wonderful JP Reynolds. Their fabulous wedding planner, Ivy Chou, introduced me to them and they were all such a pleasure to work with. Jenn had 2 stunning wedding gowns, a stunning smile and genuine excitement that lasted all day. Leo had their cute Beagle puppy, Pinot, with him, a dapper Tuxedo and a cool, calm quality to him that also lasted all day long. Their wedding was classy, fun and had an around-the-world-theme. They now happily live in Shanghai, so this theme really suited them. It’s been fun following Jenn on her Instagram since she moved to join forces with Leo in China! Congrats you two. I wish you a lifetime of love and happiness!

And, YES, that’s the one and only, Usher, below… He happened to have been a guest at the hotel over the weekend and was kind and generous to be in a photo with Jenn & Leo.
