kelly + mark. {in love}

As soon as I met these two at our first meeting, I knew I wanted to shoot their wedding.  I am quite the competitor, but more so with myself than anyone else.  I am always trying to look at my system, my work, and trying to step it up a notch as much as I can.  When we met Kelly and Mark, they had a very clear idea of what they were looking for, and they wanted something “different.”  Most guys come to meetings and listen as the bride talks about their wants…..Mark had a mental list.  He knew all the “tricks” of the trade, all the cliche’ poses, everything! :)  It made me laugh, and it made me want to give them exactly what they were looking for.

So, they chose us…and we are so happy they did.  They had a couple fun ideas for their engagement session, and they loved the idea of keeping things personal.  One idea was a night shoot, and then after they saw this one we did in LA HERE they said, “That’s it!!”  We decided to work around sunset and into the night, and I am so happy with the results we got.

Meet Kelly and Mark :)  Aren’t they just adorable?


Loved this little area we found.




We worked around an area near their home, where they hang out often.





{they are} perfect.




They like to sit by the river and look out at our city, watching the lights dance on the water.  They really loved the idea of capturing that…..


We did too.  I love this shot.


How fun?!






Couple action shots-they crack me up.  As I was looking at Kelly + Mark I said, “Awesome!! I love it guys!” Then I turned around to see Brett sprawled out and I said, “HAAA! I LIKE THAT TOO!!”  SO here is me shooting Brett, at the same instance he was shooting me.  I had no idea he took that one of me until I loaded the cards.  I look like such a dude when I am in serious mode. :)


Stretch it Brett!


Kelly and Mark!!! We can’t wait until your wedding in September!  It will be just beautiful!!! :)
