Steffanie and Ruben in Huntington Beach

We met Steffanie and Ruben over at Huntington Beach near the Hyatt Regency. I've been wanting to get some shots of a couple riding bikes, and as it turns out, they do that quite often there.

Ruben claims to be uncomfortable in front of the camera, but as you tell from these preview photos, he is very photogenic just like his gorgeous fiancee. He helped by making Steffanie laugh a lot, and you could tell they were having fun with the shoot. We really had a good time with them and we can't wait for their wedding in May.


At the popular tower in Huntington Beach. The blue sky serves as the perfect backdrop for the white tower.



We found this shaded area for them to get a little intimate.



They look so good together.



Love the smiles here.



The Hyatt Regency is such a pretty place for photos. These flowers are so cute and colorful.



We loved this wall as soon as we spotted it. Steffanie grew up just a couple of blocks away and said, "I never realized there were so many nice places for photos here!"



You can see their bikes in the background.






Even though they each had a bike, we thought it'd be cuter to have him give her a ride.



The sun was starting to set. You can see how soft the light was.



Another nice wall to shoot against.



Steffanie saw these boards and wanted to get a shot of themselves in front of their respective national flags. Sometimes, our clients come up with the great ideas!



Steffanie has the most gorgeous green eyes. Her shirt and the green grass complements them well.



Hard to beat the sunset on the Pacific coast.



Under the famous Huntington Beach pier.




I love how the photos turned out. Thanks for working through the freezing cold weather!

Su and Hanson in Huntington Beach

We met Su and Hanson at the beautiful bridge and tower of the Huntington Beach Hyatt. Su was all smiles during the shoot, and she seemed to laugh more as the conservative Hanson became more shy. Hanson is a lot like me in that he's much more comfortable behind the camera than in front. As you can see though, he's quite photogenic so hopefully this will show him that he can be great in front of the camera.






Su's cute pink shoes.


The sky was awesome. It was half blue and bright and half cloudy and dark. There was also thunder and lightning. What's a little scary weather to stop us from a great shoot?


Su's laugh is so infectious, every time she laughed I was laughing behind the camera too.
