{portraits} erin & stefan

When I was in Cali last year I also met up with talented photographer Erin Lassahn and her boyo Stefan. We started out shooting down in Laguna Beach and then the plan was to head up to Black Star Canyon north of Mission Viejo for some shots around sunset. As we were driving up, I notice we’re running out of time, the sun is about to disappear behind the mountains. What to do? I see a nice spot up a hill, so I figure it’s all or nothing. I stop the car and tell (yell to) Erin and Stefan to scramble up the hill. I SWEAR Erin thought I was mental. She looked at me like I was a mad man. That slope was steeeeeep. Anyway. I’m glad we scrambled. I was going to blog these the day Stefan pops the question, but you can only wait so long, buddy. No pressure.

  4. wow these are unreal – love the subtle editing on the last one (well i’m assuming there’s a dash of editing – although with you you never know you probably nailed that straight out of camera!). inspiring stuff as always.
