Both of these amazing and generous individuals spend their working days looking at eyes, but really, they only have eyes for each other!

Anjelah . Portrait

I clearly remember when my good (Vietnamese) friend Tim popped open a window on our laptop exclaiming, “You have to see THIS!” back in 2007.

LA LA LAND

We’re currently in LA, one of our favorite places to visit, and we’ve been stuffing ourselves with awesome food in the company of awesome friends. We shot a fabulous engagement session in Laguna Beach which we can’t wait to share, and we’re getting ready for a wedding today at an estate made for fairy-tale weddings. For fun, below is a test action shot where I asked H to model for me. Too cute that I couldn’t resist posting.
