RANDOM FACTS

I use way too many exclamation marks, but I'm really just that excited!!!! I want to know what moves your heart. I say "that's so funny" quite a bit, but it can mean a number of things. I am a lover of donuts and tea. I floss every night before bed! I love the idea of being spontaneous, but rarely do things unplanned. I am the youngest of four girls, but I'm taller than all my sisters. I would love to open a cafe someday. I am fascinated by the bridegroom God and his ravished heart for all of humanity

    Pasadena Engagement Session: Amy + Daniel

    I can’t believe my dear friend Amy is married! It seems like just yesterday we were hanging out at UCLA and praying for the perfect man to walk into our lives (yes, we prayed about that!) and now she has found him! Amy was like an older sister to me in college- cooking for me, driving me everywhere, and always making sure I was doing ok. I am seriously so grateful for her friendship through these years. And Daniel. Daniel is so wonderful. He is kind and sweet and so so good to Amy. I am so happy for you two! Many blessings as you start this new chapter together!

    my editing style and some before + afters!

    Sometimes I have potential clients asking me what I do when I edit my photos. I try to tell them the best I know how, but sometimes it’s easier just to look at before + afters! The first of each pair is what comes straight out of my camera and the second is after editing. Hope this helps! : )

    Stephen + Julia MARRIED!

    I love this couple so much! Stephen and Julia are dear friends from UCLA and I feel honored to have captured different seasons of their relationship. It was such a joy to witness their proposal in Santa Cruz, their season of engagement, and finally now, their wedding day! Stephen and Julia were wedded at the Rancho Guajome Adobe in San Diego where family and friends gathered for a beautiful outdoors ceremony and reception. There were so many fun details to the day and I loved all the energy! These two are such a beautiful pair (inside + out!) and I couldn’t be more excited to share their big day with you! Enjoy!

    Thank you Michelle for 2nd shooting for me yet again!

    Goodbye Los Angeles, Hello Kansas City!

    Good morning and happy Tuesday! Today I am heading out to Kansas City for the next three weeks and I am SO excited to see these silly (and terribly cute!) faces! AND! I will be welcoming my new baby nephew into this world while I’m there, too! Ahh, can’t wait to meet him! : )

    Follow my adventures in Kansas City through instagram (@leener104) and/or twitter (@liueileen). See you again in three weeks, LA!

    Jen + James MARRIED!

    Jen and James are married! : ) I fell in love with these two at their engagement session and couldn’t have been more thrilled to shoot their intimate wedding at the Los Angeles County Arboretum. I used to dream of having a HUGE wedding as a little girl (all my sisters had huge weddings, esp. my oldest sister Emily who had 1,200 guests!), but weddings like Jen and James’ make me appreciate the intimacy of smaller groups. There were eleven guests who witnessed the beautiful coming together of these two and they fit perfectly into the little space Jen had picked out above the waterfall; I love how cozy it felt! : )

    Jen’s wedding dress was BEAUTIFUL! It was the same dress her now mother-in-law wore for her own wedding with a few changes made by the talented Fionna (who also did Jen’s hair and make-up!). Love all that lace!
    meanwhile james was waiting at the Arboretum for Jen… this little girl was SO cute! Here she’s pointing out that she has the same dress on as Jen! the crowd of witnesses! After the ceremony we went straight into portraits. First pictures of the Mr. and Mrs! : ) The lovely couple stopped by my house last week to drop off a cute little pouch (with a camera on it!) and some green tea Kit Kat bars. As I opened the gifts in front of Jen she laughed out, “It’s GREEN, your favorite!” They are seriously the sweetest! Thank you so much you two and congrats again! : )
