Trevor & Kristen - Engagement Photo's - Anza Borrego & Salton Sea

This blog has a new home. Check out my latest work at: www.capturedbyaimee.com/blog

I have the coolest clients!! Kristen and Trevor live in Vegas and are having their destination wedding in San Diego. Within 5 minutes of meeting them I knew that we were going to create some incredible art together. They came all the way from Vegas to shoot at the post apocalyptic landscape that is the Salton Sea. I have been wanting to shoot there for a while and was so excited when I met Kristen and Trevor because they definitely have the right look and feel for the spot. I love their glamour juxtaposed with the ruins of this ecological time bomb.
We shot at Anza Borrego on the way to Sea where I took a giant cactus to the foot. Kristen bravely grabbed the cactus's 3 large spurs that were lodged into my foot and with one swift painless motion removed them (flip flops + desert = bad idea).
Kristen and Trevor are adventurous and literally walked on shattered glass to get the shots. This day was also so awesome because I got to shoot and hang with my friends Cynthia and Henry Chaplin. It was so hard to narrow down the pic.s for this post and adding Henry's amazing shots to the mix made it even harder.
I am soo excited to shoot their upcoming wedding!!


Ryan & Tammy - Rancho Santa Fe - Church of Nativity

Tammy and Ryan are the type of people that make you immediately fall in love with them. We love everything about them. These two have so many enduring qualities the way Tammy scrunches her nose when she smiles...the way Ryan gives real hugs...but most of all the way these two love each other. They were married at the Church of Nativity in Rancho Santa Fe on a beautiful warm day. We were thrilled to be a part of their love fest!


Chuck & Becky - Engagement Session - Palos Verdes

This blog has a new home. Check out my latest work at: www.capturedbyaimee.com/blog

Last Sunday we drove up to Palos Verdes to take engagement photo's of Becky and Chuck. We met them at their ceremony site, Wayfarers Chapel, a glass structure overlooking the Pacific Ocean designed by Lloyd Wright. The grounds were amazing and we were so inspired that we started shooting right there. Afterwards, we headed over to Abolone Cove State Park to shoot some more. On the mile hike down to the beach, we learned more about Becky and Chuck. Aside from being a beautiful couple they are warm and genuine and even though we only have known them a short time they already feel like old friends. We could not of agreed with Chuck more, when he said: "We're having a great time."
The day ended with more photos on the electric trolley that runs along the Port of Los Angeles. We're looking forward to more good times at their April wedding!
p.s. Chuck and Becky digging the boot as are my cats!!
