On a hot and humid summer afternoon, Studio M's Aaron Monroe linked up with Rafa and Marleen for their engagement session in the Los Angeles Arts District. Our first stop was Angel City Brewery and the surrounding murals in along Alameda and 3rd st. Rafa is a firefighter and brought his turnouts as a surprise for his lovely fiancee. It sure made for some adorable pictures. After a quick outfit change and a welcomed decline in temperature, the couple strolled along the historic 4th street bridge which crosses the Los Angeles River. The pink skies set against the Los Angeles skyline made for some dramatic engagement pictures of Rafa and Marleen. Her dress looked simply beautiful as it caught the little breeze that the evening had to offer. Once the sun had officially set Rafa and Marleen travelled to Ahmanson Theatre that has a sweeping view of Los Angeles City Hall. These are by far some of our favorite photos from their session! We are so excited for Rafa and Marleen to get married and we can't believe we have to wait until 2017 for their wedding!

Studio M photographer Aaron Monroe met up with this stylish couple for a "night out on the town" themed engagement session. We began the session at Walt Disney Concert Hall in the heart of Downtown Los Angeles. Siuna wore an amazing yellow dress which "popped" against blue tones of the surreal concert hall. The couple concluded their session at one of the preeminent rooftop bars that Downtown Los Angeles has to offer. Perch is a classy establishment with high-end cocktails where Siuna and Neevon like to celebrate joyous occasions. An engagement session certainly fits this criteria! With stunning views of the city the couple enjoyed a live band as the sun was setting in the distance. We are so happy that Siuna and Neevon found each other and we couldn't be more excited for their wedding!

One of the perks of being a wedding photographer is being granted the opportunity to follow our clients through their next stages in life. This is why we are over the moon for Brittany and Nick's maternity session. We shot their wedding last October in Camarillo and now they are adding a new member to their family. Brittany looked stunning in her flower crown in the field of wildflowers. We ended the session in a hidden field with breathtaking views of Downtown Long Beach. We couldn't be more excited for these new parents!

The June gloom was in full effect for this outdoor wedding affair at Coyote Hills Golf Course. Jeff and Danielle exchanged their heartfelt vows in front of friends and family with the idyllic waterfalls in the background. Their wedding day was like something out of a fairytale. Jeff and his best man are huge fans of "The Simpsons" so it was only natural that Jeff was gifted a groomsmen cake that featured Homer and Marge as cake toppers. Congratulations to Jeff and Danielle on your fabulous wedding!
