Nisha + Bhavin – Little Rock Engagement Portraits

Posted: August 7th, 2013 | No Comments »

Leslie and I had such a great time photographing Nisha and Bhavin at the Arkansas State Capital. These two were in top dress and looked like they were made for each other. I thought the gold doors at the capital would be a perfect backdrop for their outfits and jewelry. Here’s a couple of my favorite images, I hope you guys enjoy!

Rachelle + Steven – Laguna Beach Engagement Photos

Posted: February 19th, 2013 | 1 Comment »

Sometimes when Leslie and I are shooting photos for people, either engagement portraits, wedding photos, or family sessions, I sometimes take for granted how special it is for our clients. I get lost in the moments of making beautiful photos, composition, color, light, and posing. I’m having such a great time attempting to create little peices of art that I sometimes forget that what we are actually doing is documenting. We’re using tools to capture their story, to freeze a peice in time. It’s just a section of their lives, but most of the time it’s a very important one. The photos will be admired for generations, passed down to children and grandchildren, shared with friends and family and used to remember a time in the past. Leslie and I absolutely love what we do. I feel blessed everyday that we are in the industry of love. One of the things I like most about photography is the technical side, all the fun gear and equipment. I also love the creative freedom that comes from a subjective art form, but with all of this, I think it’s most important that we keep in mind who we’re taking the photos for. I could have the most creative and technical photo ever, but if it’s not true to the subjects, and has no emotion or isn’t telling their story, then I have not done my job as a documentry wedding photographer.
Below are a couple of our favorites from Rachelle and Steven’s engagement photos we took this Sunday. They are truly a beautiful couple both inside and out and I hope that these photos will show you that. We had a great time shooting around the Canyons of Laguna Beach and the Pacific Coast in Southern California. We are very much looking forward to their wedding in May and can’t wait to share it with you guys! – Eli

Julie’s Bridal Portraits

Posted: November 10th, 2012 | No Comments »

Today Matt and Julie are getting married, so I can now finally show some of her beautiful bridal portraits that we took back in October at the The Villa Marre, which if you don’t know the history of this amazing wedding venue in Little Rock, you should check it out. The Villa Marre was actually photographed for the opening credits of the TV series Designing Women. Julie has such a warm personality, her contagious smile will brighten your day. I don’t think she stopped smiling the whole time. Matt is a super great guy and a perfect fit for her. We’ll share more from their wedding day soon. Hope you enjoy a few of my favorites photos from her bridal session.
