Helen + Doyle Expecting | Irvine, California

Samuel Cosa

I've had the privilege of knowing Helen + Doyle since childhood and have remained great friends throughout the years! Back in my Ultrasound days, I worked along-side Helen in Arizona and also in California. Helen first helped me land a wonderful job in Phoenix, and I returned the favor by putting in a good word for her in Anaheim. Fast forward a few years later and Helen was recently rewarded the title of "Employee of the Month" for the ENTIRE hospital at this particular facility in Anaheim! That's HUGE and it's a testament of her work ethic, giving heart, and selfless attitude. I aspired to one day reach the title of "Employee of the Month" while at the same hospital, but my certificate must've gotten lost in the mail!!! ;) Doyle is the jack of all trades. He can seriously do it all - and he does! Doyle also works in the medical field and does so much behind the scenes for the benefit of many people. As you can imagine, Natalia and I were so excited when Helen + Doyle announced that they were expecting their first child, due this September. We just had to schedule a time to get together and document this beautiful season in their lives. Below are the results of our time together on a perfect summer evening in Irvine, California.

Enjoy!
Sammy

P.S. Helen + Doyle, you two are going to be AMAZING parents!

Katie + Taylor Married | Malibu, CA

Samuel Cosa

Katie and Taylor first met in Fiji on a medical-mission summer program while they were both studying at Pepperdine University. They didn’t start dating, however, until they reunited a few years later and fell in love over long hikes, intimate folk concerts, and days spent at the beach. Since graduating they have made Malibu their home and they knew that is where they wanted to say their I DO's - in Malibu, on the shore overlooking the ocean, with their closest family and friends present. An amazing aspect of their Wedding Day is that Taylor's father officiated the entire ceremony. It was awesome to hear his dad say, "Son, you may now kiss your bride!" Guests laughed, cheered, and applauded as these two sealed their vows with a kiss. Katie + Taylor's Wedding Day could not have been more perfect. Truly. From Taylor wearing flip flops with his tux, to Katie honoring her father on her floral bouquet, their Wedding was intimately beautiful and a celebration of these two beautiful souls becoming one.

Below are a few of our favorite moments captured during our time together. We hope you enjoy viewing these photographs as much as we did capturing each and every one of them!

Blessings,
Sammy
