“Meant To Be” // Mony & Lionel’s Engagement Session

It was a perfect picnic for two on a gorgeous day in Los Angeles. Mony and Lionel looked simply amazing as they enjoyed their loving engagement session. These two weren’t afraid to have a great time and enjoyed their day of love. Just look at these phenomenal pictures of the two of them; don’t they look absolutely radiant?

There are no words to describe how beautiful the relationship was between Mony and Lionel as I took pictures of them for their engagement session. Choosing a park in Los Angeles for their picnic themed shoot, the day couldn’t have been any more perfect. The sun was shining brilliantly all around us and the park offered a great hidden place for just the two of them to enjoy the day together.

Beginning our day by walking around the park, I immediately was aware of the powerful connection these two had. Meeting through EHarmony, they marked the fourth couple I have taken pictures of that had met through this site! Yes, the FOURTH! It must be a site that really works. Meeting for the first time at Yogurtland, they had immediately hit it off. It wasn’t long before their relationship grew into something more. Wanting to spend forever with Mony, Lionel had arranged a perfect set up to propose. Taking Mony out, they returned to her apartment which Lionel had transformed into the perfect stage for his proposal. Rose petals lined the stairs, tealight candles lined the room, and the balcony had a candlelit table for two with wine and chocolate covered strawberries. Needless to say, when Lionel knelt down on one knee, his romantic gestures took Mony’s breath away.

Their relationship had already been filled with happiness and a beautiful love story. Capturing these moments for them as they created new memories during their session made it a special day for me. The way their faces lit up with joyful smiles just made the day complete. Having fun as they roamed around this forested area around us, I felt like I had joined them in a dreamy paradise of love. With the warm sun on our backs, these two picked out a nice spot to share a romantic little picnic together. Spreading out a blanket on the ground and bringing out some glasses with a bottle of wine, it was the perfect equation for a wonderful romantic occasion. Posing together with love shining in their eyes, I couldn’t believe just how beautiful the two of them were. It was truly a session that made me believe in the miracle of love.

A Perfect Circle

A relationship has a beginning, a middle, and an end. When you find that perfect someone though, you want it to always last forever. Working hard to forge a strong foundation and to keep that spark alive, it’s a journey that is continuous. Through this journey, many things can happen.

A relationship has a beginning, a middle, and an end. When you find that perfect someone though, you want it to always last forever. Working hard to forge a strong foundation and to keep that spark alive, it’s a journey that is continuous. Through this journey, many things can happen. But as love grows between two people, it isn’t long before a person wants to show their dedication and undying love.

I’m sure there are many people out there who just follow suit and buy a ring for their significant other just because it’s something they have seen others do. But what is it really saying when you do? There are many types of rings such as a promise ring, an engagement ring, or a wedding ring. These could also signify the course of the relationship. The promise ring is the beginning, the engagement ring is the middle, and the wedding ring is the one that marks the end of a single life and a start of a married one. The wedding ring should be the end since the relationship has led you to the point where that person is the one that is forever.

But back to the question: what is it that you are really saying when you put a ring on someone? A ring is a symbolic gesture. If you look at a ring, it doesn’t have a beginning. It doesn’t have a middle. And it certainly doesn’t have an end. It goes on forever in a perfect circle. When you place this perfect circle over a person’s finger, the symbolism follows into your relationship. This means that you’re dedicating your life to them since the relationship should continue on forever – just like that circle. So when choosing that “perfect” ring, just keep in mind the meaning of it. It isn’t just a symbol of fleeting love, or something you do when you’ve been with someone for a certain number of years – it’s something that should last forever as your love grows together through the journey of life. With this ring, may your love and dedication always be remembered in the reflection of its shining perfect circle.

The Rosals – Los Angeles Family Portrait Photographer

Family is always wonderful to spend time with and this couldn’t have been any more accurate for the Rosal family. Joining them at their home for a family portrait session, Raymond, Melba, Ace, and Cyril all greeted me as if I too was a part of their family…

Family is always wonderful to spend time with and this couldn’t have been any more accurate for the Rosal family. Joining them at their home for a family portrait session, Raymond, Melba, Ace, and Cyril all greeted me as if I too was a part of their family. And I basically was for that day – at least that’s how it felt as I joined them and took pictures of their wonderful day together.

This family was great to work with. Having some pictures inside their house and some outside, we started with some group pictures before branching off into other pictures. They all looked wonderful as they posed in their family setting. Everyone was smiling and it was awesome to see them being close.

Playing basketball, card games, and enjoying each other’s company, everyone was having a great time. Laughter filled the house and it truly felt like a home when we were inside. Everyone was involved – including their cat – and they always found ways to make the portrait session an exciting event. It was wonderful to be a part of it for a day and even better to provide them with lasting memories through pictures.

Our family sessions only $350. Please contact us to get this amazing promo at 310-400-6727.
