Leslie & Yashaar

Although I’m a diehard Bruin, most people don’t know that I actually began my college career as an Anteater.  As in the UC Irvine Anteaters.  Zot zot!  I spent my first year and a half there and then transferred to UCLA.

Leslie and Yashaar are also Anteaters.  And Leslie also happens to be a Tri Delt, which means, we are sisters :)  Leslie is good friends with my Lil’ Sis, Cassandra, but joined Tri Delt after I had already transferred so I didn’t meet her until recently.  Leslie is one of those awesome brides who contacted me before she even got engaged.  Love that!  Once Yashaar popped the question in New York City they finalized a date at the Parker Palm Springs (amazing!).  I’m SO excited for their wedding.  Not just because it’s going to be beautiful, but also because there will be so many familiar faces there as well!

We shot Leslie and Yashaar’s engagement session at the Viceroy in Santa Monica and at the Santa Monica pier.  It was cold!  Really cold.  Leslie and Yashaar did an excellent job of looking like they were warm!  I had a ton of fun getting to know they both and am looking forward to their warm wedding in Palm Springs in May :)  Here’s the slideshow!

    Drew these might be your best photos yet!!! Which is really hard for me to say seeing as I think all your work is amazing. But these are BEAUTIFUL!!!! Like I could totally see them in a magazine.

    The Santa Monica Pier photos are so fun looking. The colors just pop and love the one of them both peeking out of the photo booth?

    Plus, who doesn’t love a ferris wheel. It really stands out and adds to the last photos all lit up in the background.

    These are so cool! I love the color palettes that are created with his purple sweater and the environments they’re in. The beach shots are beautiful too.
