A sunset session with Rachel and Colin

Engagement / Couples

What I enjoy most about photographing couples is just watching them have fun together. Not only do I get to create the art that I love, but I get to hang out with awesome people who are crazy about each other.

Recently I moved to Los Angeles away from my home in Northern California. It was a big change for me, but let me tell you it was one of the best decisions ever made. I feel like I finally found my little place in the world. While down here, I’ve met some pretty awesome people. Turns out, they were also transplants from Northern California as well.

When I went home for the Holidays, turns out Colin had family out here as well. So while him and his girlfriend, as well as myself all live in Southern California, it turned out Northern California was the best place to photograph them. Their first photo session together! We had a blast running around in the outdoors during this sunset couples session.

Does that bright colored hair look familiar? That might be because Rachel is an incredibly talented Los Angeles Makeup Artist who appeared on the Syfy Show Face Off. ┬áIf you haven’t seen her work, you really have been missing out! Follow her on Twitter to see her new work!

I am pretty lucky to not only have photographed these two, but to call them some of my first friends in Los Angeles.
