Godwin and Nicola // Los Angeles, CA Engagement

In just 2 days these two will be getting married. Their lives will become one, and they will be celebrating love and the relationships that have molded them along the way. Their lives will never be the same, and that’s for the better.

Just 6 weeks ago they got back from spending over 2 years in Perth, Australia, where they have been championing identity in marginalized youth. They are back in the states now where they’ll be championing love in their own marriage.

It was destiny that hit the day they met upon their first meeting in Perth. It was an instant connection…where they fit like lock and key. It was then they discovered that though they were 9,000 miles away from home, their hometowns were one and the same. Just 14 months later Godwin got down on one knee and laid out the question on a beautiful jetty overlooking the bay. Of course, Nicola said yes. And 4 months later they are getting hitched!

It is amazing what these two carry, and what they have in store in their futures. In just 2 days justice will be married to mercy. I adore their longing for restoration of significance in the lives of the underprivileged. And, it is a joy to capture their story. Thanks for your wonderful help Alison!

Alyson + Jason // 1 Year Anniversary in Fairbanks Ranch, CA

 

Some of my favorites from last month’s celebration of Alyson + Jason’s 1 year anniversary up in the sky. Life can only get better!

Jenny + Tamson // Pasadena, CA Engagement

I have the best couples ever. Back in September, I spent some time with Jenny and Tamson capturing their engagement story in Pasadena at the historic Burlington Arcade..chosen by the couple for its London-esque look. I’ve always been a sucker for red and blue together, so I was in love when I had a chance to capture these two in these colors. Seeing the couple’s keen eye for detail and discerning taste in action were enough to whet my appetite for what’s in store for their upcoming wedding in January! Can’t say enough about this couple except that I’m excited for them to tie the knot in just a few months. Big thanks to Float Pasadena for letting us play at their shop. 

Mini Sessions in June

It’s been a long 9 months since we’ve left the states for the far away land of Nepal for a few personal projects of ours. It’s been wild, it’s been great, but mostly good and absolutely worth it. In fact, I would never trade the experience for a thing. I went to Nepal to get into new branches of work I haven’t gone into before without any promise of what would happen when I returned. Well, I’m returning in 4 days on June 1st to continue wedding and portrait photography in the states with a new perspective to continue my journey in art.

To celebrate, we’ll be going up and down the California Coast (yes…driving!) to see old friends and clients we’ve missed for the past year, revisit sights and sounds we’ve missed the past 9 months, and I’ll be taking pictures along the way. Plus, it’s a really good excuse for us to see everyone again :-)

Here’s our June 2014 itinerary where I’m currently booking 30 minute mini-photo sessions:

June 5: Berkeley, CA
June 7-8: Bernal Heights, San Francisco
June 10: Lema Ranch, Redding, CA
June 13: Las Vegas, NV
June 14: Malibu Hills, Los Angeles
June 21: Quail Hill, Irvine

What is a mini session? A 30 minute photo session designed for couples, singles or families where I photograph you and you get to be you. Photos are delivered 2-3 weeks later on a disc at which time print orders can also be made.

DETAILS: Each 30 minute mini session is $150.00. If booking for >5 people, each additional person is $20. A non-refundable payment in full is due to retain your space. Should it rain, boo! We’ll be sure to schedule a make-up date.

Space is limited so e-mail me at marithasears@gmail.com to grab your spot today! Hope to see you there.
