A forgotten dress led to some of epic photographs, that is the story of Tanya and Deric's engagement session. We met up on a Monday in San Diego and went around downtown, starting at the Sante Fe Depot, where Tanya spends much of her time taking the Amtrak down from Los Angeles to visit Deric. We hit up some dope spots around East Village and upon a clothing change, Tanya realized she left her last outfit back in LA. They had an engagement video shoot scheduled with my pals Ren & Rob the upcoming Saturday and I said I'd be down to shoot again but asked, "how about we throw in some smoke bombs?" So the next few days we planned it out, with Deric working for the Border Patrol, we had easy access to a field where we can use as many bombs as wanted. He also had access to some bombs and one we found out was actually tear gas. Haha, we learned a lot that day! The day was so fun and we came out with some of my favorite work and two shots were actually selected for Junebug Weddings Best of 2016 Engagements Honorable Mentions. Enjoy.

Next week, I get to head back home to celebrate the nuptials of Yuki and Mike in San Diego. But before then, I'd love to share the engagement photos that we took last year up in San Francisco. We headed around to some of their favorite neighborhoods and finished off at Wingtip, where Mike designs suits, to encapsulate their style.
These two, these two, these two. Can't wait for the wedding.
Art and love. Love and art. Love is art. Suin and Jeffrey.
With San Francisco as a backdrop, it seems like every shot is an epic. Follow my journey with Aura and Eric around some of their favorite places in San Francisco. I can't wait to see them for their wedding in June.
