Michelle & Vikram Part 2 | San Diego Engagement Photographer

And I'm back! Abbey turned 4 last week, so I was busy putting together a "Pixie and Lost Boys" themed party for her. The party was a success and now I'm back to editing photos!

Here are pictures from my second photo shoot with my cousin Michelle and her fíance, Vikram. We decided to play around with back-lighting in a dark alleyway (...always one of the best places to shoot at night...) to see if we could capture some sultry silhouettes. Mission accomplished.

Love it. Thanks for bringing the sexy, Michelle and Vikram ;)

Michelle & Vikram | San Diego Engagement Photographer

Today's post features two very special people: my dear cousin Michelle and her fiancé, Vikram. Michelle and I grew up like sisters, as we both have younger brothers. We went to camp every summer and winter together. She came to my homecoming dances and proms. We spent every family holiday together, playing with Barbies, braiding hair, or dressing up. Now that Michelle is getting married, we decided to play dress-up one last time for Michelle and Vikram's engagement session!

Michelle and Vikram came down from their home in Long Beach to stay with us for a weekend and we dreamed up three beautiful shoots. This post features pictures from our first session. I'll reveal the others in future posts :)

Michelle and Vikram will be getting married in September in Santa Margarita. They are planning to have two wedding ceremonies -- one as a traditional Indian ceremony and the other as a more casual American ceremony -- to reflect their multicultural heritage.

Michelle and Vikram have two adorable dogs, so we brought them along for the shoot. You'll see more of them later...

Look how natural they look together in this picture. So easy and in love.

Michelle and Vikram, I could not be happier for you two! You are radiant in these pictures and I cannot wait to reveal the rest of your engagement photos... :)
