Stylish Manhattan City Sesh

Categories Real Weddings

Danica and Milton are a gorgeous and expressive couple and their Manhattan engagement photos tell their love story in such cool and artful way. Their NYC sesh has style, sexiness, silliness–and a cinematographic vibe. Great job, POPography. We love all the angles, shadows, textures, colors… I guess we’ll just have to wait for the movie to come out. Enjoy!

Sunset E-Sesh on a Rustic Ranch in Santa Fe

Categories Real Weddings

Ashley and John Paul’s sunset engagement photos were shot at El Rancho de las Golondrinas–a living history museum located in a rural farming valley near Santa Fe, NM. With natural beauty in abundance, this rustic property also boasts a historic water wheel and a lovely reflecting pond–providing great photo ops for Ashley and John Paul. And, ironically, winds from massive fires in Arizona and New Mexico blew smoke over the Santa Fe area which diffused the light–casting a warm glow over this already stunning sunset session. Beauty from ashes in a way… Enjoy.

Andrea and Davis went for colorful and comfortable for their engagement session. They also wanted to emphasize Davis’ military background so this adorable California couple went to Lyon’s Air Museum to have their engagement pictures taken. They also wandered about The Lab in Costa Mesa for more fun and relaxed shots, too! So with the planes, map and artifacts in the background, we just love the clarity and crisp colors that Lisa Marie Figueroa Photography captured in these photos. Enjoy!
