Sarah and Sam’s Book Themed Engagement

Where do I begin to describe these two… Let me start by a phone call from Sarah. Sweet Sarah, as I call her now. She reached out to get some pricing for her wedding day, care of Patti’s referral from Sherman Gardens in Corona Del Mar. It wasn’t more than a couple minutes into the […]

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 […]

Destination Wedding- An enchanting evening in Sonoma

Every wedding has it own special qualities. Sometimes it’s the location itself, sometimes it’s the couple who are simply too cute, every once in a while it’s even just the gaggle of guests that can lift the entire room. This one had it all! Michelle’s parents actually live in Sonoma, therefore it wasn’t much of […]

Whitney and Mike= St Regis + St Edwards Church + Talega Golf Club

These kids had themselves a busy day!  We hopped from location to location to location documenting just how their day unfolded. Mike and Whitney had a room awaiting them at the St Regis, so might as well get ready there too!  We not only got to photograph Whitney as she slipped on her gorgeous gown, […]

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 […]

Sugar ‘N Spice and Everything Nice- Newborn Session

I’ve been documenting Rachel and Ronnie’s lives for the past 5 years, from their engagement session to their wedding all the way through the birth of their beautiful brand new baby girl.  Meet Ava Rayne, their gorgeous bundle of joy!  She really is a pretty baby!!!  And was pretty easy too.  Although we blew through […]

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 […]

Dove Canyon sets the scene for Kim and Brian

I love working at Dove Canyon.  Every time I’m there I find a new spot of light or patch of backdrop to play with.  They offer such a serene environment for the mood of the day.  Everything from their spacious bridal prep room to the stunning glass and wood reception room with expansive views of […]

Jenny and Brandon Tie it at Talega

These two have been nothing short of a complete pleasure to get to know and work with.  Everything from our first meeting, the beachy themed engagement session (even Brandon picking up prints before Christmas and hanging out in my kitchen while I baked cookies) to the day itself I’ve had such an enjoyable experience.  Their […]

Welcome to the World Quinn!

If you peruse backwards, you’ll find Kristen and Jay’s engagement session, wedding day highlights and pregnancy shoot all blogged.  I simply cannot resist showing off everything I do for them!  I know I am biased because they are such nice, sincere, good people.  But then again, maybe that’s why they always get the best from […]

Ryan and Shane – Engagement Shoot Country Style

There is something so wonderfully genuine about Ryan.  After a phone call and a consultation I couldn’t wait to point a camera at this darling, bubbly girl!  I knew Shane was going to be someone special to have reeled in this catch.  The number one reason I thrive on engagement shoots is to get to […]
