angel, paul, and 12 blue luftballons in santa monica

we knew going into this session that angel and paul were super fun, smokin hot, and down for just about anything we could dream up.
dear diary, jackpot!
with a couple like this we had to find a place that could handle the kind of fun we were about to roll out. we hopped in the ohana-mobile and drove from san diego to santa monica to find just the right spot.
angel and paul, meet the santa monica pier.

dear ad wizards at hollister, angel and paul are available to model and are waiting by their phone.
ring, ring. who’s there? destiny? i’ve been expecting your call.

if you think angel and paul are hot put your hands up


this is why so many people come to southern california. it’s, as fergie says, glamorous.
this is also one of my favorite shots of the day that kim took.


another favorite that kim took… ON A BIKE!

hi, pushing daisies, we stole your color.

kim’s better at pitching. i’ll let her take it from here.
kimmy’s got the spotlight!
wait for it.
oh snap!
audiences love pigeons.
holler back!


paul is sad. he can’t smoke upside down.






the best part about angel and paul is that they balance their excessive hotness with an awesome sense of humor. we LOVE couples that can laugh at themselves, and couples that make us laugh. angel and paul are most definitely in that category.




lock it up :)




as seen on their teaser post, angel and paul went all the way (into the water).
thank you angel and paul for being absolutely down for anything. we could not think of a better day than the one we had with you.

Hey Ohanas!!!! Well job done. LOVE these set of Engagement session. The couple looks like they have alot of "laughter" in their relationship, the way it should be. You were actually in my neck of town.

Me and Vaness laughed at almost every comment (well.. you know, the one's where you were being funny:)… LOVE that backlit O.E. holding up the balloon in the air shot… JUST LOVE IT.. ALL bout it… you guys are awesome. foreal.

You rocked the pier, man! The balloons and the light together are a magic potion by the ocean! Big laughs when I saw the shot with the Peeping Tom, and the shot with the pigeon is classic! Hope you had a great trip to LA!

Holy hotness on the OHANA blog!!! These are awesome! Seriously want to set something up with you guys for headshots. SERIOUSLY!

I love how this session moved from full out humor, to amazing love. How do you guys do this :-)

there are far too many TOP favorites here for me to recount. off the tipptop of my head — the one with the man in focus & they are blurred out kissing = pure awesomeness. i also LOVE the one with the two of them blurred out & the camera in focus on the ground in front of them. have i told you lately how much you guys rock?;)

These are so much fun!! Jason and I must come down to LA just for you to shoot us!!! Deal?
Oh, the pigeon shot is wicked! The man in the background shot cracked me up ;)

These are so fun! Love the balloons :)

I love the balloons! You guys are brilliant!

I love the cropped balloons shot!
I love the shot in the water!
I love your choice of locations!

Are you serious?! Sexytime in Santa Monica! How do you always get the best most fun and hottest couples ever! I seriously cannot choose a favorite, but the first, second, third,fourth, fifth….. ;D Nope can't choose.

Can I come and be part of your photography family? Seriously…I'll pack my things up and move there right now. I love your work, I love your style!

They look like a fantastic couple to work with and jumpin in the water like that was awesome! Great color – great session!!

Um, all I have to say is that you guys are ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!!!

fun photos, love the colors

I can't decide what I love more… the gorgeous couple, the fabulous shots, the commentary, or the half-naked man in the background.

These are amazing!! I love, love, love them! I know those are your words but I'm stealing them. I find myself smiling every time you leave blog love for me because you're so talented that it makes me feel warm and fuzzy when you like some of my work!

The balloons.. the color.. the personality.. the random large dude in the background… the laughter, the moments, the scenes, the stories, the compositions, the angles, the lighting, your narration…. everything is just absolute perfection. Your clients are truly blessed that you share your amazing talents with the world.

I love the pigeon shot, the "glamorous" shot and the balloons!!! You guys did such an awesome job!! So fun!
