Jaritza and Thomas had the sweetest wedding day surrounded by loved ones who traveled from all over the country and so many sweet moments. I first met Jaritza a few years ago and instantly loved her and her fun loving spirit. And she has definitely found someone who’s just as fun loving as she is […]

Ashley and Greg are back on the blog! The last time I spent with these two was in January before Greg was scheduled to leave on a 3 month tour for the navy. What was scheduled to be 3 months turned into a whopping 6 months but not before he surprised Ashley by coming home […]

This time last year, I was photographing these two as they were saying ‘I Do’ in a beautiful ceremony surrounded by their loved ones. Now they are celebrating their anniversary with a session in beautiful El Matador Beach in Malibu, California. This is one of my favorite locations to photograph at! The rocks make a […]

Kristel & Bryan were all smiles for their engagement session at Echo Park and the Walt Disney Concert Hall! These two are just wonderful people inside and out and were very easy and natural to photograph. (And their little pup, King Arfur is the cutest little thing too! Wait till you seen him!) Echo Park […]

Meet Ruthy and Samuel and their precious baby girl! They are just the sweetest, kindest little family ever. Ruthy contacted me a few months ago about doing a family session and when we finally met for their family session in Pasadena, I was thrilled. Baby girl was sleeping in her stroller when we started so […]

Matt & Kristen’s engagement session at the Santa Monica Beach was beautiful! More beachside engagement sessions please! These two are one of the sweetest couples ever (how do I always get the sweetest couples?!) and are so excited to get married this fall. I loved hearing about their wedding plans and know their small, intimate wedding […]

Amanda & Adam’s engagement session at El Matador Beach was beautiful in every way. The couple. The sunset. The beach. I could photograph every couple here and still not get tired of this beautiful location! Seriously, I am so thankful there isn’t a shortage of nice locations here in Southern California for engagement sessions. Within […]

 So who does a photographer get to photograph her? This girl got her hubby to do it. Yes, I know, he’s such a trooper! I first asked him to do head shots of me in October. And if you know my husband, he’s much more of a sports guy than he is a photographer which […]

I love Valentine’s Day. And not just because of the chocolate and flowers (although chocolate is on the top of my food pyramid) but because it’s a time when we can express our thankfulness to those closest to us. And I have so much to be thankful for in my husband. He’s the kindest, loving, sweetest […]

Although you see my work posted on social media and elsewhere, it’s hard to really get to know the person behind the lens. Well, if you don’t know me, or have just seen tidbits of me, I’m Aura Elizabeth and I like warm hugs, ginormous pieces of cake, and chasing sunsets. I’m a small town girl who […]
