redondo beach historic library romantic wedding | vicky & jin

i have a special place in my heart for my couples who met online, because tyler and i met online and i couldn’t imagine going through life without him. vicky & jin met on coffee meets bagel, and as their relationship blossomed it became clear that they were meant for each other. jin made vicky four promises and asked her to be his wife, to which she happily said yes.

their wedding ceremony and reception took place by the ocean at the redondo beach historic library, and they said their i dos as they and their loved ones enjoyed the view of the sea at sunset. vicky had gorgeous wedding details, and the huge tree right beside the library made for some beautiful, fine art wedding portraits of the bride and groom.

i’m so honored that vicky & jin chose me to photograph their wedding day!

ebonee | a downtown portrait session

i was SO EXCITED to hear from ebonee a few months ago when she first reached out to me about planning a shoot. ebonee and i went to college together at USC, and hadn’t seen each other in some time so it was really great reconnecting! ebonee is a writer, speaker, and all around amazing woman who is on a mission to dispel the myth of the “superwoman.” especially with social media, it’s easy to feel like all eyes are on you all the time, and we place unreasonable expectations on ourselves do to everything. everything everything everything. (oh wait– is that just me? ;).) all the stress those beliefs bring is unnecessary. ebonee truly has a gift and a message to share! we planned for the shoot to be focused on this particular theme of her overaching message.

ebonee, i am so so very excited for you and i can’t wait ’til your book comes out! <3

if you’d like to #hangupthecape and learn more about ebonee, you can find her over at www.eboneespeaks.com.
