The desert is magical. I absolutely love it. So naturally when Kathryn and Nathan asked if I'd be cool with driving out to Mecca at sunrise for their engagement session, I was totally on board.
There was a beautiful vibrancy that flowed throughout last weekend’s wedding, from the large yet close-knit wedding party, to the beautiful backdrop, to the wild and wonderful reception, and especially when it came to the love between Anthony and Colette.
A few months ago, Justine, James and I explored Balboa Park, talking, laughing, joking, and then headed over to Ballast Point in Little Italy.
That's I look for in my engagement sessions. Gorgeous photos, yes, obviously. But also, connection. Adventure. Fun.
A few months after we had both moved out to the west coast and got settled, I reached out to Angelynn and we set a time to explore the Arts District in Los Angeles.
It was everything I hoped for. The combination of the dynamic street art, Angelynn's style, and the strength that she just naturally emanates - it all made for what was easily one of my favorite portrait sessions to date.
I ADORE in-home sessions. When I photograph people, I want to capture them exactly how they are, in that moment. There is something so pure and warm and real about photographing people in their environment. It's a peek into who they truly are, and to me, that's the most beautiful thing.
While I certainly love the big, beautiful wilderness, boy do I love me some city weddings.
One early morning in March, Kelsey and Shane met me on this beautiful trail in Del Mar, and together we chatted, they danced, and we explored a beautiful coastal trail.
When a rad couple meets you at an equally rad couple’s rehearsal dinner you’re photographing, and then asks you to be their photographer too, that is the best. feeling. ever.
A man in uniform. A stunning bride. A gorgeous cathedral, and a beautiful downtown reception.Brian & Ashton’s wedding was classically elegant, dreamy, and full of that golden southern California sunshine and timeless beauty.
As we enter the last month of summer, I’m looking back to the end of last fall.Specifically, at Kristie and David's gorgeous, romantic Jacksonville wedding.
This was a pinch-me-I'm-dreaming wedding.
As I arrived at and explored the grounds of the Estancia La Jolla Hotel, I was greeted with hugs, hellos, and big, beautiful smiles from this incredibly sweet couple.
They gave me so much time to work with, and given the gorgeous location, the overflowing florals, and of course, the stunning couple themselves, I couldn't be more grateful.
Summer may be pretty much here, but I'm throwin' it back to fall of '16 today. I LOVE fall weddings. And Julia and Ryan completely embraced the fall theme in the best way.
I had been looking forward to Cailen and Matt’s wedding since their engagement session, and it was everything I hoped.
These two are getting MARRIED today!!!And with their big day, my wedding season is back in full swing.
Vow renewal. Yes please. In New Orleans. YES PLEASE.
The sweetest couple with the sweetest pups. This was my first engagement session in San Diego, and I couldn’t have asked for a better couple to start a new city with.
Vow renewals are rad. This one especially.
Brenna & Lucas' engagement session was one of my first in California after moving to the Golden State in July, and man, did I fall in love with this place and these two right away.
In the spirit of needing to give some love to my blog (so neglected for so long!), I decided that I'm going to go ahead and share some sneak peeks, and give you guys a little taste of what I'm currently working on. Let's start with Addison and Zach's wedding from last weekend.
