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.
"At the age of 19, I tattooed some stuff on my left hand, on my fingers, and a lot of people got mad, thinking I was going to be stopping myself from potentially getting a job. For me, it wasn’t so much of a stopping point – it was more motivation to just keep pursuing what I love to do." -chris phipps
"this is super weird, but this is something that I created, and nobody else created, so I’m going to post it." -siera wildey
Julia & Ryan are getting married in a week and a half and I'm REALLY excited. Back in May, we explored Balboa Park together, wandering through the beautiful old architecture and lush green ravines, dodging tourists and finding the best little pockets for photo gold.
Back in May I made my very first trip to San Diego, as we were getting ready to make the great SoCal move a month later. I just fell in love with this city right away.
On the morning of her wedding, I asked Taylor, "What are you most excited for today?" A giant smile spread across her face, and she answered "I get to marry Johnny today!" That's my kind of bride.
I love maternity sessions. Expectant mommas totally have this goddess-type glow going on that fuels my little ol' creative soul, and makes for some rad photos. Hannah totally rocked that goddess glow.
