Karla + Bobby Part II

Here is part II from our fabulous engagement shoot with Karla & Bobby in Hollywood. They are such a fun couple. We had an awesome day showcasing their unique love for one another. They had so many amazing photos it was hard to choose a favorite. The shoot wouldn't be complete without showing off the rest of their family, Horseface & Fido.

Andrew the Trojan

This is Andrew, our oldest nephew, and he recently received his acceptance letter to the University of Southern California. Oh yeahhhhh... he's excited about going to the same school that some of his football heros have recently attended (the likes of Reggie Bush and Matt Leinart). He's also looking forward to attending a school with a rich history, which will be a great plateau for him in his endeavor to becoming a pediatrician. Wow... "Dr. Compton, paging Dr. Compton." ;) That's got a nice ring to it. It'll be nice to have a doctor in the family.

Please remember to keep Andrew in your prayers. As we all know... college can be tough (in many ways) as well as Los Angeles (especially around USC) isn't the most forgiving of places.

Andrew, we are truly proud of the young man that you have become. It has been a true joy to watch you grow up and you have set a great example for the rest of our nieces and nephews to follow. We're excited about your future and know that God will continue to keep you and guide you in your life. Please be safe, study hard and remember what your priorities are while you're at USC:

1. God
2. School
3. Work
4. And if you have any spare time... maybe a coffee at your local Starbucks with a nice christian girl (for an hour or less).

Also, don't forget your bible verse for college:

"Now faith is the SUBSTANCE of things hoped for, the EVIDENCE of things not seen." Hebrews 11:1

We love you Drew. And you can always call us anytime you need to.

Karla + Bobby Part I

Finding that one special person that completes you, that loves you for exactly who you are and doesn't have an agenda on changing you isn't the easiest thing to find. I am sure some spend their entire lives searching for this perfect love but some are more fortunate. Take Karla, she is a strong women who knows who and what she wants in life and she isn't going to settle with less. That's what makes their story so special. There is no settling, there is no complications but just true raw love that happened by chance. By being at the right place at the right time as destiny would have it 6 years ago.
Bobby and Karla have been inseparable ever since. We spent the day in Hollywood (where they live) documenting this unique love they share. We had the most fabulous day ever.
We cannot wait for their wedding on October 11 at the beautiful Wattles Mansion in Los Angeles. We started the day off on the rooftop of their place that is located on Hollywood Blvd with the most gorgeous views ever. They have spent a lot time on this rooftop so it was a prefect setting to get them loosened up and taking a stroll down memory lane.Bobby & Karla, Your love is infectious. We love you and thank you for trusting us to document your big day! We look forward to many years celebrating your love and commitment. Love, Tony & Danielle
