Late last year I headed down to the Baltimore harbor for the wedding of Humda and Rizwan. It was a gorgeous (and windy!) three day celebration of their union together. Respecting their culture, I have refrained from posting the ceremonies, so I leave you with some of my favorite candids and portraits. A big thanks to Danielle of Danfredo Photography for rocking the first two days with me.

You might recognize Andrea & Bryn from their New York engagement on my homepage, which by the way, we photographed during a heatwave. Talk about a hot couple (pun intented). We scheduled the second half of their engagement session in the Bay area, specifically San Francisco and Marin, where they met. So here's a throwback to the beginning of their love story, with their awesome dog Patrick along for the ride.
I flew into Chicago worried, it was downpouring and our session was in five hours, I was checking the weather like a madman. About an hour before our session the rain stopped but it was overcast, still ideal and I was just happy it wasn't raining. We photographed around Chicago and then Kristina and Tony's home. Afterwards, they said we needed to get the Chicago downtown view. As soon as we got to the location, the sun broke and created the most beautiful sunset. I just stopped and stared in awe, I had the most beautiful view and an amazing couple, it was all I needed.
Love is equal for everyone in my eyes and for Lorraine and Catherine its in their hearts. We traveled around LA and hit up some of their favorite spots. Hitting up the basketball court was definitely high on the list and these ladies can play.
I've never been a big beach person even though I was born in Hawaii and I lived in San Diego for so many years. I always tell people the only thing that takes me to the beach is when a couple wants to photograph there. But when I went to the sand with Kristin and Phil in Costa Mesa, I got to stare out into the ocean and it definitely brought back a feeling of nostalgia. Missing the fact that I lived so close to the ocean and never took advantage of it, I may rethink not hanging on the sand. Especially if I get to hang with some cool folks.
