Surf and Sand Wedding- Allyson and Shadow

This is a good one… I met Allyson at Niguel Hills Jr High when we were a mere 12 years old. As we entered Dana Hills High School I was immersed in photography, Ally landed a spot on the yearbook staff too. Not to brag, but our school was known for always winning #1 nationally […]

She said YES!!!

One afternoon I get a phone call, it’s a man finding out pricing for what I charge to capture his proposal on the beach. He had me invested right at “proposal”! As he went on to explain his plan to pop the question I could actually hear the nervousness in his voice. He sounded so […]

Ana + Steve, La Casa del Camino Laguna Beach Wedding

This is truly a special one… I love a good love story, in fact I thrive on them. Without being too intrusive I always hope that couples will share their journey to the alter with me and encourage the conversation. Ana and Steve are so warm and welcoming that she offered it up during their […]

Tivoli for Two- Sarah and Brian

Being born and raised in Laguna, places like Tivoli remind me of why I’m proud to call this small stretch of Southern California coastline my home.  I suppose it forms my opinion that I am such a fan of quaint, one of a kind places.  Laguna, to me, is inspiring because of it’s art, it’s […]

Laguna Beach Engagement -Whitney and Mike’s Sunset Setting

Waiting with all my nerdy gear hanging off of me, along come Whitney and Mike down the path that meanders The Montage coastline.  She’s a spunky, bubbly girl so I just knew he was going to be a fun guy too.  I don’t always get to meet the groom when we first get together, but […]

Baby Thomas on the way- Pregnancy Shoot

Before I say anything, I have to acknowledge the power of referral.  I need to thank Natalie Vishny of Swellegant Events for sending me Lauren and Adam who have since sent me Amy and Jon.  I wasn’t fortunate enough to meet these two in time for their wedding, however being a bridesmaid in Lauren’s wedding […]

Lauren and Adam- La Casa del Camino Hotel

Before I find myself gushing over this couple, this day and all of it’s gorgeousness I feel compelled to explain a bit about the location itself.  You see La Casa del Camino Hotel is one, if not THE, oldest grand hotel in Laguna Beach.  Built in 1929 it’s been on the corner of Cress and […]

Superbowl Schmuperbowl! Let’s go shooting!!

Kristen and Jay really earned some great images.  We spent the entire week prior to Sunday tracking the weather, the clouds and marine layer that was due to potentially ruin our beach location.  I am used to playing meteorologist, but it must have been frustrating for them.  Finally the day came and the sun was […]

The Reilly’s ROCK!

How do you get two adults, 2 teens, 2 kids under the age of 4 and a 140 lb dog in one “I want a wall canvas” image?  Well, you just do!  This was worth sharing just for the challenge aspect!! I adore Taunya. I was lucky when she found me to photograph their wedding […]

Jessica and Scott +1

I’ve known Scott before he found his Jessica, he’s been friends with my brother for many, many years.  So when they met and fell in love it was natural progression for me to photograph their wedding day.  Fast forward three years and I am honored to document their baby boy on the way in January. […]

Mr and Mrs Ward’s Surf and Sand Soirée

Us photogs are always drawn to showing off the huge weddings with all the bells and whistles… it’s so important to also share the intimate, darling, smaller ones too.  Wendy and Brian had but 6 guests for their special day and it couldn’t have been more beautiful.  I love that they still thought to utilize […]
