Crystal + Andrew… ENGAGED! // Photo Session

Their story? They visit art galleries often and this one time, Andrew got in touch with one of the painters there to paint a picture of him proposing to Crystal. His plan was to arrive at the scene with the painting already done, she would see it, and he would propose. Very Cute. The challenge? Trying to convey the artist what exactly they were going to wear in the future. Andrew knew exactly what he was going to wear. Crystal, did too… but later changed her mind! So with a last minute call, Andrew got in touch with the painter to inform him that she changed her dress for that day. Everything worked out. If you look at the painting closely, you will see the artist also painted the same painting on the background, giving an infinite dimension effect.

I’ve known Andrew since the 7th grade when we were… you know, the same height =). It’s rare and crazy to say we have friends from over a decade! Or maybe we’re just getting old. When Andrew first introduced Crystal, I was already envious of the love they shared. They decided to have their engagement session at a place where he first took her on a date: San Diego. It’s my first time shooting here and I must say, I think I fell in love with San Diego.

Congratulations Crystal + Andrew!

Karla + Nelson. Engaged! // Photo Session

Chris Ace Films + Stills? Maybe. I do enjoy taking photos, especially at colorful places! I’ve never been to the LAB Anti-Mall in Costa Mesa. I’m not sure why it’s called the Anti-Mall. Maybe it’s because there’s less than 10 stores? Or maybe it’s because it’s so artsy? It also seems to be a popular spot because there were other photographers doing the same thing. Anyway, this is my very first time photographing a couple and I must say they were fun to shoot! Although the harsh daylight made it challenging, the energy of Karla and Nelson made it fun! Congratulations Karla + Nelson! In just 2 months, this couple will be married!

Photosodes Episode 17: Bridal Make-Up

This is our first photosode where we’re actually not the expert at the topic at hand, in fact we know very little about this week’s photosode. So we bring Jen who’s a professional make up artist to talk to us about her techniques while she’s putting make up on our model Mylinh. In this photosode you’ll see the step by step process from start to finish on what a make up artist does to a bride. You may or may not know that make up and hair can completely transform someone’s appearance, and if done right, make up can turn you from awesome to super awesome.

Thank you Jen and Mylinh for coming into help us!
