Jonathan + Mimi | San Diego Engagement

This engagement shoot was the first time that I had a couple bring an entourage with them. Jon’s twin brother and their photographer friend joined Mallory Olenius and I on our downtown San Diego adventure. Of course we put these guys to work and we couldn’t have come up with some of these pictures without them. San Diego has so many great locations for engagement pictures that it can be difficult deciding where to go. We hit Balboa Park, Sunset Cliffs and Lindbergh Field. Jonathan and Mimi have amazing fashion sense and I can’t wait to see what they come up with for their Malibu wedding. Photography by Brett Butterstein and Mallory Olenius.


Kelly + Colin | Los Angeles Wedding

Kelly and Colin were married at the Bel Air Bay Club in Palisades, California on a typical, beautiful Southern California day. Ocean fog cleared just in time for their ceremony and reception, exposing ocean views and golden light for portraits. When you do a buy out at the Bel Air, you get to have a sleep over with your best friends in a historic building with timeless Hollywood glamour. Fortunately, Mallory and I were invited to the after party where we bonded forever with two amazing people, who also have friends that know how to rip it up.
