Act 1: We meet November 2009
Our first official date I took Laura to El Torito in Marina Del Rey. We enjoyed flautas while wathing the sailboats passing by. We spent the entire day together, talking about our dreams, ambitions, and passions. One of which led to Laura dreaming about one day becomming an engagement and wedding photographer in Los Angeles and surrounding areas. I immediatately fell in love with her passion and charm. We ended the night looking over my old high school year books.
Act 2: He Proposes October 2010
Donny Proposed on the beach of Carmel-by-the-sea after ten months of dating! I was so excited to marry my best friend. I should have realized what was happening when he kept acting so weird all day long, but I was clueless!
Act 3: Our Wedding September 17th 2011
We were married in the COQUELICOT (ko-klee-ko) Estate Vineyard in Solvang, CA. Solvang was our first vacation together and is also the first place we said I love you. You could say it is where we fell in love! This city will always hold a special place in our hearts.
Act 4: Our new adventure with Los Angeles Engagement Photography begins!
We developed and grew our love of everything together, especially photography. We bought our first DSLR in April of 2010 (a Canon T1i!) with no idea what a wonderful journey this little rebel would start us on. As much as we wanted to jump right into engagement photography, we decided to wait until after our wedding to jump in head first; and boy do I mean jump! Within two weeks of returning from our honeymoon we registered in two engagement photography seminars and on a warm sunday in October at a Samy's Camera in Culver City, we purchased our second camera! We had been looking forward to having a second camera for months and were finally convinced by a no sales tax weekend. To this day we don't regret it for a second. It was our biggest push to get everything started. We can't wait to share our love with you and create a wonderful happy, fun, goofy environment! Below are a couple of images of some things we love to do together.
