Becky + Ralph told us that they really liked some shoots we have done at Abbot Kinney and in Venice, but they wanted their shoot to have more of a “we’re just hanging out” type of feeling. So, we went with it and had a blast hanging out and shooting with these two! :)

We had a great time hanging out with them and we are super excited to shoot their wedding at the Carondelet House later this year! :)

Lisa + Ryan and their dog Ruby are an absolutely adorable little family! So it might be a little bitter-sweet when we steal Ruby.

We kid, of course, and we cannot wait to see all three of their smiling faces again at Lisa + Ryan’s Calamigos Ranch wedding! :)

You may remember Donna + Josh from their freaking rad engagement session that included floaties, a surf board, confetti, and crazy light swirls.  Their wedding also did not disappoint. It was filled with sooo much love, respect, adorable kiddos, and dancing that you just had to bask in the awesomeness that is them.

Happy Cinco de Mayo!

Here’s a funny coincidence: we had planned on blogging Nikki + Juan’s engagement session (in which they wore traditional Mexican attire for a small portion) long before we realized that today is Cinco de Mayo! It is strange how things just line themselves up sometimes. Isn’t it?

Anywho, we hope you will enjoy checking out these photos as much as we enjoyed taking them! We shot two weddings over the weekend, so we are off to enjoy a much needed siesta. :)
