the engagement . marisela + mario

Mario proposed to Marisela as they backpacked through Spain. 
Does it get any better? 
After five wonderful years getting to know one another; they took a beautiful trip through Spain... Together they explored the country and even ran with the bulls in Pamplona (an experience that Marisela describes as the scariest experience of their lives!) During their two week journey, Mario kept the ring hidden in his backpack (which he kept strapped to his chest at all times; didn't want to lose that!!!) as he waited for the perfect moment... which ended up being on a beach as they crossed Southern Spain... Sounds like such a romantic and adventurous trip... after spending time with them; I feel as though those two words perfectly describe their relationship with one another: romantic and adventurous. the perfect combination.

We had so much fun roaming the streets of Downtown Santa Barbara during Fiesta weekend... 
I was so excited to spend time there since this is where their romance blossomed; Marisela living here while Mario visited by train on the weekends...

Thanks, you two!!!

karmacy . the band

Swap is a client of mine; I photographed his wedding 3 years ago and have remained in touch with both he and his wife, Shilpa (and they just welcomed their baby boy, Amani into the world this past week!) 
So, when he told me that his band would be in the LA area for their newest CD release party & concert; I was ecstatic to see these two again and to meet his bandmates, Nimo and Kiran! We hit downtown LA for some promotional shots prior to their concert... Concert photos coming soon... 

bookmark their site as it'll relaunch soon! 
you WILL NOT be disappointed, their sound is so unique; I was instantly hooked. 
until then, please visit their facebook profile here.
