I’ve had the pleasure of knowing Alicia for quite some time. From our days on the dance team to high school classes, she has always been one of the sweetest people I know. When I saw her during Christmas time I loved hearing all about this great boyfriend of hers, and a possible wedding after he took the Bar exam. But Ryan had other plans and popped the question just a few short weeks later. When she asked if I would shoot her wedding this coming December I couldn’t have been more excited. She had found her match in Ryan; an aspiring attorney and avid soccer player, and their wedding at the historic Padua Hills Theatre in Claremont will be one for the ages.
After a couple weeks of bad weather we finally got the perfect weekend to shoot their engagement around the Los Angeles Arboretum. It has quickly become one of my favorite places to shoot as I am always discovering beautiful light and locations around every corner. Plus I got to hang out with these two all afternoon, which was the best part of it all! Enjoy!
