A couple weeks ago, the same childhood friend who had taught me to ride my first Honda XR-70 reached out about doing this photo shoot along the Pacific Coast Highway. When he told me his vision, I knew that the stretch from Newport Beach to Laguna Beach would be the perfect place to capture the long stretches of Highway 1 where the road meets the ocean. These photos turned out to be some of my favorite from 2017 so far, and totally represent what California dreaming is all about.
Last month, I had the pleasure of shooting Lynae Davis's head shots for her awesome business Makeup by Charlo D Vaughn. We choose Segerstrom Center for the Arts so we could shoot in various natural and architectural backgrounds. She is a makeup artist serving both LA and Orange County. Since meeting her in 2015, I've had the opportunity to collaborate with her on several weddings, so I've seen her incredible skills first hand. She always makes her brides feel comfortable and confident on their big day, and in my opinion acts more like a friend guiding them through the stressful day rather than just an ordinary vendor. If you are looking to hire a talented makeup artist for your event, I highly recommend Lynae!
