The Closer to Love Family | Aiden Turns One

They told us on their Wedding Day – back in 2012 – that Natalia and I would be their photographers “for life!” AND they have kept true to that very promise! We have followed Stella and Daniel through some of the most memorable milestones of their lives. From their Engagement journey, to their Wedding Day, to their sweet Maternity Session in their home in Downtown Los Angeles, to the Arrival of their firstborn son, little Aiden. We have been there, with cameras in hand. We are honored to call Stella, Daniel, and Aiden our very own family! This week we were invited to document their growing little family as Aiden celebrates his 1st Birthday! We had such a blast with these three at the Griffith Park in Los Angeles as we reunited once again to capture this trio. Their eclectic Family Session was so much fun and we look forward to many more years of unforgettable memories, laughter, and endless joy – we’ll be ready with our cameras to document all of life’s beautiful moments!

Meet Stella, Daniel, and Aiden – also known as  the Closer to Love Family!

“Children are a heritage from the Lord, offspring
a reward from Him. Like arrows in the hands of a warrior
are children born in one’s youth.” Psalm 127:3-4


Evelyn + Philip Engaged | Borrego Springs, CA

After 4 hours of driving and getting lost in the middle of the desert – near Mexico – we decided the best location to begin photographing an Engagement Session was right before our very eyes. Vastness of beautiful mountains, pure ivory sand, and wide open blue skies… What could be more perfect? I ended up spending the entire day with Evelyn and Philip and looking back, it truly feels like it was all a dream! 12 hours of laughter, endless conversations, and truly an admiration for such an incredible, beautiful, and talented young couple – these two are madly in love and made for each other! Evelyn and Philip are undoubtedly ONE OF A KIND individually and together. They met in school nearly 7 years ago. For Philip, it was love at first sight. For Evelyn, it was his confidence and charm that attracted her to Philip and his heart would eventually win Evelyn’s heart over. Their mutual love for the Lord brought them even closer than they could have ever imagined. Is it any wonder that when we look back at their photos, it feels like a dream? Their love radiates through each frame. They are breathtaking and their hearts shine through. Their respect for one another is admirable and a breath of fresh air. We can say SO much about Philip and Evelyn (and they know it!!) but without further adieu, we’ll allow their photographs to do all the speaking. Enjoy!

God bless,

“May you rejoice in the wife of your
youth, may you ever be intoxicated with
her love.” Proverbs 5:18-19
