Family Matters, A Very Special One

I don’t usually post the same location for a blog back to back, you’ll see I just used this “enchanted forest” recently however this one turned out so different that it’s worth sharing as well. Of course the content, styling, location, right time of day, props, they all come together to make a photograph that […]

The Becker’s Beachy Themed Shoot

I know… it’s Thanksgiving, so what am I doing working? Well, sometimes although I “should” be taking a whole day off I’m just too inspired. And let’s face it, the pie is in the oven doing it’s thing so I have 45 minutes to kill. I just couldn’t wait to show Estella, Greg, Adriana, Shelby […]

Michelle + Mike’s sentimental engagement theme

Michelle and I have worked together for years, just in a different capacity. I’ve been doing corporate events and business headshots for the company she works for, Global Cash Card, for years now. Diversifying my work into corporate stuff ironically sends me wedding leads here and there! When her long-time boyfriend Mike “put a ring […]

Family Fun Day in the Park

I’m so lucky to meet a couple as they embark on a life together, planning a wedding and a future. It opens the door to connect and build a relationship that can last throughout their life’s milestones. I cannot recall how Stephanie and Bill first found me over a decade ago, but that seems so […]

Santa Monica Play Date with Steve + Ana

Ana and Steve are my new favorite couple right now… I only met them about a week ago but their love story is so powerful I was immediately sold. In fact, it’s SO good that I am going to make you wait until I post from their wedding day in August to share it. Cliffhanger!!! […]

Family Fun Day at Disneyland

There’s still a magic to waking up in the morning and thinking “I’m going to Disneyland today” even if it’s to go shooting. It’s that same feeling from being a kid, knowing that you’re going to a place where it’s entire purpose is to feel joy, play, laugh and escape reality for a while. I […]

Kelly + Dalton’s Northern California Engagement Shoot

Dalton is a total stand up kind of guy. Migrating from the military to follow his Father’s footsteps into the police academy kind of says it all. Kelly is a sweet, bubbly realtor in the Green Valley area. And she just so happens to be my cousin which is bragging rights for me because she’s […]

Soon to be Mr and Mrs Trumble…

Before I say a word about Matt and Taryn I need to give a huge thanks to Dana and Jimmy Green who referred them to me.  I photographed Dana & Jimmy’s wedding day back in 2004 so to keep me in mind a decade later is appreciated beyond words! So Matt and Taryn met with […]

Modern Family, Rustic Setting

I’ve known Courtney for over a decade now.  We met when my career was more focused (pun intended) on modeling work than weddings, hence we did a bunch of artsy, creative portfolio work together when she was pursuing her model career.  I’m talking BMW at night with headlights back lighting her & fog machine type […]

Disneyland Day- Fairytale Engagement Sesh

How I came to do this shoot is a great story… I photographed Tryg’s wedding over 10 years ago in Seattle.  In fact he’s still featured on my destination wedding page of my website!  And of course with him being two states away it was harder to stay in touch, especially considering there was no […]

Hayley and Paul’s Torrey Pines engagement

Oh.  My.  Gosh.  I adore this bride and her family!  I sat down with Hayley, her sister and her Mom when they were first considering me for their wedding photography.  After about 3 minutes I had the gut intuition that I simply HAD to be a part of their wedding.  Of course, as all respectful […]

Marla and Josh hang out on Abbot Kinney

I feel so special to have Marla and Josh in my calendar for October 2014.  They were referred to me by a friend and contact at Skechers (which I’ve done a lot of work with in the past) and chose me by one phone conversation.  I always feel like it’s a lot harder to express […]
