Eva&Peter live in New York City, and I instantly fell in love with them. They are so easy-going, with a great sense of humour, and hanging out with them in the West Village for their engagement session – featured on Style Me Pretty here – was pure joy. Peter’s family is from Puerto Rico, and that’s all naturally that they had decided to organize their wedding in San Juan. Saying that I was not disappointed by that wonderful day in Old San Juan is a huge understatement. I fell in love with Puerto Rico and was in awe all day capturing that beautiful wedding.

Brooke and Cameron live in Hermosa Beach, California, and they just had their baby Charlotte a few months ago. When Brooke told me she wanted to do a family session – which would be Charlotte’s first one – I was really excited. I met them in Cameron’s parents’ beautiful house in Palos Verdes, and we spent a couple of hours together. I can’t say enough great things about this couple, and the wonderful family that they have become. And of course, the amazing California light was part of the excitement!
