Brian & Kali

My 2 favorites thing about this engagement session: 1) Golden Hour 2) The way Brian looked at Kali. I couldn't help but swoon when working on these photos! Due to Kali having to leave town, they ended up setting up this session on VERY short notice. I'm so so happy we were able to make it work! I hope you enjoy them as much as I did!

John & Abigail: Engaged!

Well I've been slacking off MAJORLY on my blog posts. I was able to document some special moments between these two this summer, from their sweet, intimate engagement session, to their big day. Here are a few favorites from their engagement shoot at a local olive house. Wedding blog post soon to come!

Shaun & Mykahlee & a Mirror House

A little over a year ago I had the honor of photographing Shaun & Mykah's big day. Since then we've ended up becoming good friends and I love these two to death! For their 1 year anniversary Mykahlee came to me and told me she wanted to surprise Shaun with a little photo shoot. So we decided to have extra fun with it and go to Doug Aitken's Desert X (AKA that really cool Mirror House in Palm Springs you may or not have seen all over Instagram). We had a blast venturing out to the desert and having this awesome work of art, as well as some gorgeous light, to play with. Enjoy!

Matthew & Christine

Matthew, Christine, and I got to make our way up to Mount Baldy a couple of months ago when we got some snow. Not only was it absolutely beautiful, but it ended up snowing on us the entire shoot! And it was amazing! (Anyone who knows me, knows how I feel about snow.) It was beyond gorgeous, and not to mention, Matthew & Christine are adorable as well! We had such a blast. I can't wait for their big day this summer!

Brandon & Andrea

In case you couldn't already tell from a great deal of my sessions, very few things in life bring me as much satisfaction as a solid golden hour peeking through the leaves, bringing forth an array of different greens. I got to do a little mini engagement session with Brandon and Andrea recently. Of course, only in Southern California will you get that summer weather and beaming sun in the middle of November. Oh, and Brandon and Andrea were also beaming...

Eric & Lilia

I've known Eric for years, so naturally was I ecstatic, not only to hear of his engagement, but when he told me that he and Lilia wanted me to photograph their wedding!  They had a small and quaint, lovely wedding in Orange County, California, the reception being held just minutes off of the shore in Huntington Beach.  Lilia was a stunning bride, and an evidently loving one, as she made a move here all the way from Switzerland!  Logically, we had to get some sunset photos on Sunset Beach.  Enjoy their wedding gallery below!

Jason & Sarah

It's not everyday you get to be the photographer at your sister's wedding!  It was definitely a crazy day, but it was a privilege I was happy to be apart of, in documenting this special day. Jason and Sarah had a small wedding with their close friends and family, personalized to what creates them as a couple.  We enjoyed a cocktail and dinner hour serenaded with music by the Beatles and some of their other favorite old time bands.  Their love for the Beatles, of course, had to be incorporated into a few of these photos.  Enjoy!
