Emeline + Jason Engaged | Flagstaff, Arizona

“I am marrying my fiancé because she is the person that I want to spend the rest of my life with. She’s my joy, my love and my best friend. I couldn’t even begin to imagine living my life without Emeline being the last thing I see every night and the first thing I see each morning. Emeline brings out the best in me, things I didn’t even know where there sometimes, and makes me want to do all I can to be the best man that I can be. She can see my full potential in Christ, and helps me attain that day in, day out. Most of all I am excited to begin the adventure of our life together, going wherever God leads us. I love Emeline, with everything I am.” – Jason

Emeline and Jason are adventurous, goofy, fun, loveable, and visibly so in LOVE. As we began photographing atop a snow-filled mountain in Flagstaff Arizona, amidst the cold and early signs of frost-bite, Emeline and Jason’s warmth shined through every frame. Their smiles and radiant admiration for each other is contagious and a breath of fresh air! Natalia and I are beyond excited to photograph their Wedding Day in just a few short weeks where we’ll get to witness – and document – this beautiful couple vow to join their lives together, as one, for the rest of their lives! Below are a few of our favorite moments captured during our time together in Arizona. Enjoy!


“As a deer longs for streams of water,
so I long for you, O God.”
Psalm 42:1

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!

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