I had the honor last week of shooting the incredibly talented songwriting/music producer duo, SuperSpy (Mher Filian and Isaac Hasson). Their most recent credit is co-writing and producing Demi Lovato's new single, "Here We Go Again."

We had a lot of fun shooting together. These three images are probably my favorites.

As some of you know I have a Minted site.

Now that Trisha and Jason have their engagement photos, I can help them create a Save the Date card.

Here are two Minted samples including one of my favorite features about this stationery company.........their minibooks. They are just adorable.

Trisha and Jason's Engagement Session

Last week I teased you with a Polaroid image from Trisha and Jason's engagement session.

I have collected over the years a list of over 50 engagement session location ideas that I allowed Jason and Trish to view. The couple chose a street filled with pink trumpet trees in Los Feliz (which I learned about from an article in the Los Angeles Times years ago) and Frank Lloyd Wright's Hollyhock House in Barnsdall Park.


Here is another Polaroid image from the shoot.

Hank & Jordan's Engagement Session





I met Hank through my dear old entertainment biz friend Doreen Thorson (who escaped the business and now lives in North Dakota).

I'm so glad Doreen introduced me to Hank and Jordan.

We immediately clicked and had a great time shooting under the Hollywood sign, Griffith Observatory and their favorite restaurant Greenblatt's, where they treated me to a yummy lunch.
