Bougainvilleas in Pasadena

This wedding took place at a private Estate in the hills of Pasadena, CA. The bougainvilleas were vibrant but nothing could detract from this gorgeous bride.  The photographer captured these amazing moments throughout the morning as I gave Portia the full Bridal treatment!

Engagement Session + Before & After Photo

Believe it or not, this before and after photo was taken with my iPhone5. I love to show the results of the air brushed makeup because no words can describe how amazingly it covers all of the imperfections and flaws, pictures speak for themselves. For this sweet bride-to-be, I did her hair and makeup trial run on the day of their engagement photo shoot. It was perfect timing, and just look how gorgeous her pictures turned out! Best of luck to you Melody in these next months of planning!

xoxo Emily
