Kyle and Kelly: engagement photos, Avalon, Catalina Island, CA

The day we spent with Kelly and Kyle on Catalina Island goes down in the books as one of the most epic engagement sessions we've ever done. Catalina is about an hour by boat from Los Angeles but feels like a world away. Kyle grew up on the island and Kelly has family from there as well...crazy coincidence since there's only about four thousand people on the island. Clearly they were meant to find each other.

Kyle's parents picked us up in their awesome 1960s Volkswagon bus and drove us all over the island on roads that are only accessible to locals. When we got to the other side of the island, we watched a tall ship (or a pirate ship according to Emily) anchor as the last bit of sunlight streamed through the low clouds and made dazzling patterns on the Pacific. Magic.

We can't wait to get our film back from this shoot and will probably be sharing more photos once we do. Also soon to come: Kelly and Kyle's intimate wedding on a Malibu mountaintop!

Jon and Savannah - engagement photos, Thousand Oaks, Lake Sherwood, CA

Last week, we walked through fields of gold with Jon and Savannah. We couldn't be more excited for these two people to dive head-first into marriage. A while back, Peter photographed Jon for his personal project, Heed the Beard. You need to check it out.  What's awesome is that we know that when these two get married in August, it won't be the last time we'll be seeing them. Becoming friends with clients is like getting to take the whole party home with you. We're getting to share this awesome time in their lives with them and it immediately makes us closer. So take a gander at some beautiful people loving each other in beautiful places and be inspired. I know we were.

Six UCLA Grads-to-be - Senior Portraits, Los Angeles, CA

When six awesome roommates asked us to do their senior portraits...we said yes. Cool story huh? All of these girls are super rad and have been close friends all through their college experience. Having both graduated from UCLA, it was a blast for Emily and I to be back on campus without the stress of finals and finishing the daily sudoku. Here are a few of our favorite images from the day. Congratulations ladies!

Evelyn Joan - Newborn Photography, Camarillo, CA

You guys, this isn't just any baby. This is the child of the Super Woman, my friend, Kelli. I grew up with this precious baby's mama and its been so cool to watch Kelli and her husband Eric blossom into a family of four with Esmond and Evelyn. I'm so glad one of the ways I can celebrate my friends is to photograph such a special time in their lives. Here's a few of our favorites of little Evelyn Joan.
