erica has been my best friend since 6th grade! i have been so blessed to have her in my life over the many years. she is now engaged to an equally cool man and i couldn't be more happy for her!!! it was such a trip shooting their engagement session on saturday. here is this girl i've known longer than anyone else, since back when i was troublemaking 12 year old punk...and there i was going to lunch with her and my family and then shooting an engagement session. weird.
anyway, we went over to a middle school by our house for their session and had a blast! i figured it would be only fitting to shoot at a middle school since that is where our friendship began :) erica and matt are SO cute together and it was awesome to see them so happy and full of laughter! here are some of my favorites....

we have been counting down the days until george and hannah's wedding since their engagement session last month! they are both two of the sweetest, coolest, most genuine people you could hope to know. their wedding took place at the athenaeum on the caltech campus which was such a gorgeous location! it was supposed to rain hard all day on saturday but everyone dodged a bullet and we had beautiful blue skies all day :)
we don't have another wedding for a while so this post is going to be BIG...sit back and enjoy!
this tassle has been passed down for many generations in hannah's family...and of course, the gorgeous dress that george's mom made!
hannah had such a blast hanging out with her friends and family while they were getting ready.
meanwhile i had to brave the unfriendly streets of downtown LA to make it over to george and hannah's uber cool loft for some prep pictures of george. i was of course greeted by the always smiling george :)
george looking like s stud getting dressed...and the best man sneaking a peak at his precious cargo :)
then it was off to caltech for a quick game of foozeball before the day's festivities began...
george and hannah's first sight was so touching!
since they decided to see each other before the ceremony it gave us plenty of time to play around and get some great pictures of the two of them!
and the bridal party...
george's parents before the ceremony...and hannah with her dad :)
the ceremony was very emotional....check out that tear on hannah's cheek as she looks at george during the vows!
the cocktail hour :)
george having some laughs with his cousins.
the grand entrance and first dance.
george was so cute....during the cake cutting he busted out his waiter moves!
the athenaeum had all these kinda creepy paintings of professors hanging everywhere...
of course the party was rocking after dinner...even the kids were on the floor!
here's us with the happy couple, another amazing couple who's wedding we shot in 2006, and liz and her husband eric who actually referred the other two to us! thanks for a great night guys!
and of course...we couldn't forget the rings!!! this first one was taken on a drawing that one of the little kids drew for hannah :)
zen rings :)
ooooo....and i almost forgot this gem!!! this gentleman flew in from taiwan to make it to the wedding....by the end of the reception the time differnce was certianly taking a toll on him :)
