esther + jay: engagement in anaheim hills, ca

today i’m excited to share an engagement shoot for two of my dearest friends and one of my absolute favorite couples. i’ve known both of them since before they were dating when we went to college together at UCSD, and it has been an incredible journey seeing them grow up together as they went through college, work, and grad school, navigating between portland and san diego. i’m so fortunate to have stayed in touch with them and was honored when they asked me to do an engagement shoot for them during one of their visits to LA.

esther and jay were married this past sunday in a beautiful ceremony that i got to witness as a guest. although i was itching to be behind the camera at times, it was priceless seeing jay’s expression as esther walked down the aisle and listening to the heartfelt vows they wrote. there was literally not a dry eye in the house.

congratulations you two :)

the following photo is so precious: the one on the left is of jay’s parents from 1979. but the funniest thing is that we had NO idea when we shot the one on the right! two generations of mr. and mrs. yoos.

  2. OMG I thought you guys did the second shot on purpose (and was thinking, she’s on the wrong side of him) but it was accidental…hahaha how awesome! Did they discover that when they showed their parents the photo?
