Nearly nine years after their first encounter through mutual friends at a dance club – where Eddie wooed Sybil with his intriguing eyes and smooth moves on the dance-floor and Sybil captured Eddie, first with her beauty, then with her quick wit and down-to-earth personality – they are getting married! I can’t wait for the big weekend this August at the chic M Resort here in Las Vegas.
And for a little pre-wedding celebration, we went on a mini-adventure where we spent the day exploring, soaking up the warm desert sun and capturing just how perfect these two are together. <3
For more from these two, check out the killer behind the scene’s video Eddie & team put together from our shoot! http://vimeo.com/119097570
Also, I just have to share their sweet proposal video: https://vimeo.com/88863270 – Eddie & Sybil are both super creative (Eddie is also owner & the talent behind video production company Salty Tiers!) And with their love of unique and creative art, they share a quirky, fun tradition of collecting caricature drawings together wherever they travel. So, for his proposal, Eddie staged the ultimate caricature – one which ended with him on one knee and Sybil saying “YES!” ^_^ Check it out above!
E+S: Had a blast with you guys & can’t wait to see you again soon for the big weekend!

Let me introduce you to Connie and Jason! C & J first met on Match.com. However, in the beginning, Connie played a few skilled rounds of ‘hard-to-get’. From ignoring his messages, to hanging up on him because she thought he was a different ‘stalker-Jason’, to showing up 30mins late to their first date because she was out shopping, she definitely put Jason to the test! But thankfully, Jason is not one to give up easy. He persisted through it all, and eventually won Connie over with his thoughtfulness, charm, and of course, great looks. Though she didn’t reveal it at the time, she did mention later that she was totally smitten after meeting him in person for the first time. ^___^
As a couple, one of the things Jason and Connie love most is simply lounging around in bed together. For their engagement shoot, we thought, let’s get a little cozy! Why the heck not!?
Part deux: Because C+J also love getting dressed up and going out, we thought, well let’s do that too! Why the heck not?! So next we headed out to the Nevada desert.
Jason is the one usually taking the photos!
Check back in a few months for more from these two and their wedding at the Vintage Estate in Napa, CA. It’s bound to be one unforgettable day!
C+J: Loved spending the day with you two & also getting to see you at L+A’s wedding! Hope you enjoy all the images! I can’t wait for it to be your turn to take that very special walk down the aisle. :-D Only 3 months to go!
When Udyogi and Nimish first wrote sharing plans for their wedding and saying, “we would be over the moon to have you do our vibrant, ethnic, outdoor wedding!!” I was excited to reply “I’m totally game!” Now, after nearly a year of planning and finally getting the chance to meet in person, I share the sentiment even more. I’m over-the-moon-and-pumped to be a part of their day! And in celebration of it being just two weeks away, I’m excited to share some images from their recent engagement session. :-)
Udyogi and Nimish are having a cultural wedding with a dynamic fusion of both their Sri Lankan and Indian heritages – both of which have very rich and beautiful traditions. To represent this in their engagement photos, Udyogi picked out this gorgeous Indian sari. I love, love, love her shoes!
It’s not all dress up for these two. They are super playful together, and surprised me by showing up with these awesome balloons!
Hair and makeup was rocked by Makeup in the 702
U+N: I had a blast with you guys can’t wait to see you both again for the wedding weekend! Two weeks and counting!! :-)
A little sneak peek of the engagement session of two of my closest friends who are getting married in Park City, Utah this June! :-)
On the evening of October 25, 2013, Brittany and her sisters had planned a surprise dinner at Morton’s The Steakhouse for their parent’s 65th birthday. It was a big deal, and Brittany’s oldest sister and husband even came in from out of town for the occasion. Brittany knew they were celebrating her parents’ shared birthdays, but didn’t know the FULL story. Prior to that evening, Patrick took a trip up to Park City to ask Brittany’s family for their permission and blessing to marry their daughter. They were overjoyed and mentioned how much they would love to be a part of the proposal itself. From then, the planning started! It was a family affair with Brittany’s sisters Heidi & JennyLynn also having a huge hand in making sure everything went down perfectly.
When the big day arrived the whole restaurant – from the managers to the host, servers and bartender – was in on the surprise and there was a wonderful, exhilarating feeling of anticipation in the air as everyone waited for that one special moment! And the best part: Brittany, who is usually quite difficult to surprise, had absolutely no idea what was about to go down. Toward the end of the dinner, the lights went low and the cake came out. But wait…the waiters placed the cake in front of Brittany. She was very confused, but finally looked at the cake and saw the words “Will you marry me?” When she turned, Patrick was on one knee with a gorgeous ring in his hand. She said “YES!”
Jayse & I had the huge honor of being a part of this amazing day. Check out a little ‘stealth’ paparazzi-style video we put together here: http://vimeo.com/92630188 Lots of happy tears. :-)
B+P: CONGRATS! <3 <3 <3 Jayse and I are thankful to have amazing friends like you in our lives and love seeing you both so happy! I can’t wait to celebrate your marriage in just 2 more months!! :-D
