Crystal and Craig have a pretty cool story. Craig had just moved back to his hometown of Santa Clarita from living on the East Coast. He decided that he wanted to meet someone from outside of his small town and so he decided to give eHarmony a shot. At first he gave the site a search radius of 50 miles but that yielded no appealing matches for Craig. So, he decided to increase the search radius to 75 miles. Meanwhile, a girl named Crystal was being prompted to try eHarmony by a well-meaning Aunt of hers and she finally decided to give in and see what the site had to offer. As it turns out, Craig had increased his search radius just enough to include a girl named Crystal 72 miles away from him. Yep, 72! And the rest, as they say, is history.
Crystal and Craig, we could not be more pleased to be your wedding photographers! At your engagement shoot, it felt like we were hanging out with old friends. You guys are fun, goofy, and easy-going and we think you’re just great. We hope you enjoy the pictures!
When Crystal and Craig told me they decided on Union Station in Los Angeles I was thrilled. I had never shot there before and I was excited to photograph somewhere new with such great architecture and history.
Crystal’s sister gave her some very cute suitcases to use during the shoot and I just love how they turned out.
Crystal made this adorable heart sign. Gotta love a crafty bride! I can’t wait to see what she comes up with for her awesome wedding.
And these shoes. Gorgeous! Another big thanks to Crystal’s sister for those.
The backlit photos were taken by Tim and the front lit ones were taken by me. I love working with my husband.
Funny story about the room on the right. Its completely closed to the public. However, I had seen a few pictures online that were taken in that room so I was determined to talk the security guard into letting us use it. I pleaded and said “Just two shots. I’ll be really quick!” He relented and I may have gotten a little carried away. Totally worth it though.
Then we decided to head outside and on to Olvera Street after a quick outfit change.
Crystal can work it out!
We tried something a little different here and pulled out the off camera lighting. I really like how it turned out. What do you think?
Then for some final nighttime shots with the beautiful cityscape in the background.
Crystal and Craig, we hope you enjoyed the pictures and we can’t wait for your wedding!
