Phil & Julia = Engaged


We loved photographing Phil and Julia.  Oh, and don’t forget Bebe, their dog.  She is here too!  Phil and Julia decided on an Urban look for their engagement portrait.  Julia is a designer and she likes the look of texture and architecture.  Turns out it fit the fun personalities of these two just perfectly.  You wouldn’t think that such a simple wall background would make such a sweet photo! Lots of cute moments to share of our friends.

This was one of my favorite shots of the day with the couple holding an ampersand sign. I love the windows too!

Cute skull dress Miss Julia!

I loved  Julia’s dress with the heart shape back.  So appropriate for engagement photos! 🙂

Urban Couple Portrait with their dog

Here’s Bebe, the dog.  We think she missed her calling as “doggy model”.  So cute!

Cute focus on the groom-to-be!

Here are our favorite photos from Mike and Stacy’s engagement session in Laguna Beach.  Mike popped the question here at this beach, so we thought it would be the perfect location for them to do their engagement photos.  These two really wanted to do something fun and casual for their portrait as it fits their personality.  They love the beach!!  Mike likes to surf so we incorporated his surfboard into a few shots.  We loved working with this couple.  Congrats to Mike and Stacy!

The hill in the distance is the spot where Mike popped the question and Stacy said “Yes”.
This photo will remind them of that special day for the rest of their lives.

Wow! 2012 is turning out to be a great year for weddings at Sipper Photography, but also with our own families.  In March, my little sister Cindy got married to Greg in Arizona (here is their wedding blog in case you missed them)!   This August, Jeff’s cousin, Kristen (she is my cousin too, through a lovely thing called marriage) will be exchanging vows with her fabulous fiance, Justin, in Oahu, Hawaii.  We are looking forward to their big day. Hawaii Baby… Alohaaaaaaaa!!!!!!

With all of these family weddings, comes family celebrations.  Today we are having a bridal shower for our bride to be, Kristen.  So, I am ready to bring the party on!!!  In honor of their day, I thought it would be nice to share a few photos from Justin and Kristen’s engagement session we did out in the Temecula Wine Country. Happy Shower Day, Kristen!  Also, a big congratulations to you and Justin on finding the one.

Chris and Saiko recently did an engagement session with us near the Montage Hotel in Laguna Beach.  When they contacted us to do their engagement photos they requested a secluded beach location and we found the perfect spots.  As I began to shoot with the couple we instantly clicked. I had asked Saiko how to pronounce her name as I wanted to make sure I was saying it right and she said “Psycho” like crazy.   I had to laugh as she shook her head while explaining it to me.  She was so cute and definitely very fun!  After only a few shots, the both of them felt so comfortable and really started to get in the moment and show their love.  A big thank you goes out to Chris and Saiko for all of their loving moments.  We will be sharing their wedding with you soon too, so stay tuned!

Cheers and Love,
