Engagement : Dave +Rachel

The wonderful Dave and Rachel are getting married next month. When asking them where to shoot their engagement session, Pasadena was on the list. I, of course, said yes! Being from the lovely area (born in the very city) makes me love being there. Well, that and the fact that you can shoot their for days and days and never run short on creative possibilities. Then again, if you say you're from Los Angeles.. you're really from Pasadena. The rockin e-session of Rachel and Dave can be summed up in one word FUN.. well, and PASSIONATE! But who's counting anyway. Use which ever word you wish.. just check it out and visit the slideshow too!

I only had time to post a few images. :) Well a few dozen is a few of some kind right!!

And below is my favorite shot of the day. I loved it so much I wanted to write my name all over it.. But instead I took the modest road and just stamped it with a little tiny bug :)

As we were about to call a wrap.. I looked across the street and there was this little gift. A small fraction of light left just for Rachel and Dave. A frame with just enough room for a bit of fun and a pinch of Passion...
