Katie & Joe // Married // The Adamson House

This blog entry would not be complete without first sharing the story of how I met Katie and Joe. Let's rewind about 2.5 years to the streets of downtown Los Angeles. Mike and I had just attended Wine Riot, and we bumped into a cool looking couple outside of the venue. Mike immediately struck up a conversation, and we decided to follow them down the street to a local bar. That might sound super weird, but it was totally normal/fun, especially for four extroverts! Come to find out, Katie is a makeup artist, and Joe works in TV and is originally from Massachusetts (close to the NH border). We all hit it off and have kept in touch ever since!

Fast forward to April 2016 and it's time for Katie and Joe to tie the knot at the Adamson House in Malibu. This wedding was such a dream! Beautiful venue, amazing food, the sweetest families, and the happiest couple - I had SO much fun photographing this day, and I think it's pretty clear through these photos that everyone else was having the best time too!

Katie and Joe, thanks for being such delightful, down-to-earth people - I'm so happy to know you!! 001_KatieJoe_KJ2_0572 002_KatieJoe_KJ1_0395 003_KatieJoe_KJ2_0111

Engaged // Lisa & Imran // Downtown Los Angeles

Lisa and Imran are getting married at Millwick in Downtown LA this November, so they chose the surrounding area in the arts district for their engagement session! I had such fun frolicking from mural to mural with this sweet couple. We finished the night on the 4th St Bridge with the sun setting behind downtown Los Angeles. Here are some faves from their session! www.marycostaphotography.com | Colorful Mural DTLA Engagement Session | 001 www.marycostaphotography.com | Colorful Mural DTLA Engagement Session | 002 www.marycostaphotography.com | Colorful Mural DTLA Engagement Session | 003

Life // We’re Engaged!

I cannot believe it's been over a month since Mike proposed at my 30th birthday party! This night was honestly a dream come true, and the BEST evening ever. You can read all about the proposal and potentially TMI about how Mike and I met over on Green Wedding Shoes, but I wanted to share the images (along with a bunch of silly photo booth pics) here on my blog too! www.marycostaphotography.com | Colorful Backyard Balloon Proposal | 001 www.marycostaphotography.com | Colorful Backyard Balloon Proposal | 002 www.marycostaphotography.com | Colorful Backyard Balloon Proposal | 003
