Boudoir Session

I had the opportunity to meet with the House of Flynn Tribe (CA) girls for a stylized boudoir meetup session yesterday. This is something that is completely out of the box and new to me! I went to watch how the professionals/other photographers direct and position women in their most vulnerable state and learned so much! First of all- It wasn't awkward? I don't know why I expected it to be- maybe because you have ladies walking around in lingerie- I mean- I couldn't do it (or could I??). But it felt like a regular shoot- posing, directing, and snapping away; just like any normal day. :) Secondly, where I tend to shoot bright, boudoir is extremely intimate- so I had a lot of fun playing with angles and capturing Stephanie here with softer and sometimes darker and more dramatic lighting than my usual style. Enjoy!

Adventure Session: Sunrise Water Engagement Photoshoot in Newport Beach

I had the honor of photographing Bristol and Brandon's wedding a year ago (wait, it's been a year already?!), and because these two love birds are crazy busy being AMAZING- we never had a chance to do their engagement session. So we decided to fix that! Since they're both active, (did I mention they ran a half-marathon the morning of their wedding- I mean WHO DOES THAT?!), they wanted to go for a swim in the harbor! So we woke up and met at sunrise to get these perfectly lit "engagement" photos and the results are stunning. These guys are just too wonderful. I'm incredibly grateful for who they are and that I know them at all!!! 

Those who fitness together, look good in photos together amiright people?!
