Taleen & Movses’ Say “I Do” – New York City Engagement Photographer

Taleen and Movses shared a romantic time together for their engagement in LA. Visiting the amazing gardened area of the Los Angeles Arboretum, they finished their day off at a beautiful rooftop restaurant called The Perch. Each spot held a wonderful sense of romance and they only added to it with their stunning smiles and beautiful chemistry. Oh what a sight! It was romance at its best!

What a day! It’s always great to work with couples during their special moments and it was no different when it came to this next stunning couple! Meeting up at the lovely Los Angeles Arboretum, Taleen and Movses were both such a sparkling couple of love! Enjoying some time in the quiet garden atmosphere, the place was alive with their romance. Blossoming like a flower at every turn, their love was exquisite. Even as they had a fun and relaxing time at a rooftop restaurant called The Perch, their never ending displays of romance just made the day special. It was wonderful to see them so happy as they celebrated their engagement!

I met this lovely couple through previous couples I have worked with over the last two years. Just like a tight knit family, they all knew each other from their Armenian church. I couldn’t be happier to be their wedding photographer, just like I was sure that Taleen and Movses couldn’t have been happier to find each other! Both growing up in California, their church was a large factor in bringing them together. Going to the same church for years and becoming friends, they eventually decided to become more than that. Dating each other and finding out that they had a lot in common with their love of God, spending time with family, having fun, and listening to country music, it was a perfect match.

Their story doesn’t end there though. There’s still how they got engaged! Taleen and Movses both went to a conference in Montreal, Canada that was being hosted by a church that was part of their church union. Their church group took a tour of parts of Canada after the conference was over. During their last sightseeing location, which was Niagara Falls on July 4th, they had missed the fireworks for the night, but there was soon to be another kind. Even though they had missed the fireworks, the group had still decided to go to see the falls at night. As the group moved ahead though, Movses drew Taleen aside and before she knew it, he was on one knee and proposing! It was definitely a magical time and even though they had been engaged for a year, the same wonderful looks of love and excitement shone brightly in their eyes as I worked with them. Always complementing each other’s personalities, it was wonderful to see them having such a great time and being comfortable with each other. It made for awesome pictures and moments that I’ll never forget!

Working as an engagement and wedding photographer, I have the wonderful opportunity to meet amazing couples each time I go for a session. While I was in Arizona, I had the chance to do just that as I met with a picture perfect couple named Kadria and Derek. Meeting at the Arizona Science Center and Heritage Square, everything about them radiated love and happiness. I knew that it was going to be a great day – they looked awesome together!

Meeting at the Arizona Science Center and Heritage Square, everything about them radiated love and happiness. I knew that it was going to be a great day – they looked awesome together!

The Arizona Science Center and Heritage Square were quite lovely to visit. With gorgeous buildings and great little areas to pose this loving couple for pictures, it made the perfect spot for these two to share a romantic time together. Endless smiles spread across their faces and as they posed in front of one of the heritage buildings, it made my mind think of this couple’s future together when they had a house of their own and shared a beautiful marriage. They were definitely on their way there already with their beautiful engagement and a wedding that was soon to be on the way. How great is love? It’s such a wonderful thing!

Kadria and Derek were definitely a fun loving couple and I couldn’t get enough of their positive energy. Spending their time walking around, posing with the letters of their first names as they sat on a bench, or even dancing around in one of the areas we had chosen for pictures, they had a love that just wouldn’t quit! Looking stunning in two different outfits, the attraction I saw between Kadria and Derek even had me smiling that day. With a wonderful friendship, a beautiful relationship, and a chemistry that always made them want to be close to each other, this smiling and happy couple was a picture perfect example of just how great love can be. Thank you for our wonderful day together and may your future hold just as many wonderful smiles!

“Pretty Little Thing Called Love” – Ashley & Gilbert’s Engagement Session

I had such an amazing time in Arizona for Ashley and Gilbert’s engagement session. Scottsdale Civic Center was definitely a unique place for this couple and it really allowed them to show off their love. Even posing next to a sculpted display that spelled “LOVE”, there was no denying that precious twinkle in their eyes as they spent the day sharing their endless affection for each other. What a great day!

It’s always a wonderful feeling to be able to work with a couple and to capture their memories of love. That’s exactly what I was able to do with Ashley and Gilbert as they spent a wonderful engagement session with me at the Scottsdale Civic Center in Arizona. These two were always full of smiles and constantly were having a great time. Arriving in stunning outfits and a love that just wouldn’t quit, it was amazing to see how much they both lit up when they were together.

Ashley and Gilbert definitely have an interesting story that brought them to where they are now. Coming from two different areas – Ashley being raised mostly in Washington and Gilbert in Arizona – college was a large factor in allowing them to meet. Both being on a basketball team, they both had seen each other around but had never talked. This changed however when they both attended a basketball party. When Ashley had been asked to dance by another guy, she grabbed on to Gilbert’s arm and said that they had to go. Even though they hadn’t talked and she was just using him as more of a scapegoat, they both hit it off and actually talked until 9 in the morning. The day after, Ashley called her sister and told her about what had happened and that Gilbert would be the man she would marry. Even though her sister thought she was crazy, apparently she was right since they are now happily engaged!

Being inseparable from that day on, they never lost contact – even when Ashley went to California for awhile. As soon as she came back to Arizona, their relationship finally fully bloomed and it wasn’t long before Gilbert’s mind was made up. Buying a ring to propose with, he headed to Ashley’s dad’s to ask permission. After that, he called Ashley on his way back to their place to meet him there. As she did so, Gilbert got out of his truck and stood in the middle of the road with her while he professed his love. Then finally, kneeling on one knee, Gilbert proposed. Even though it was a simple proposal, it was still one that took Ashley’s breath away and was filled with romance. Needless to say, they finally were on the road to marriage!

All those emotions from throughout their relationship could be clearly seen as these two posed in the park setting we had decided on. Using the large sculptured letters that spelled “Love” to our advantage, each picture of them was stunning. With the light shining romantically all around them, it was truly an inspirational moment. Congratulations to this beautiful couple! Thank you for sharing your wonderful journey with me!
