Family Fun in Big Bear

A Message to Finn: Dear Finn, I met your Mom right around the time she bumped into your Dad at a concert. So like you, I’ve never known them to be apart. As their love evolved I was then asked to photograph their wedding day. You know the big book full of pictures with your […]

Kelly + Christian, Nixon Library and Gardens

I always love working at The Nixon… it’s got such an array of backdrops that make the day so fun for me. Big, beautiful trees, flowers and garden but also great architecture and history. I catch myself having to pick and choose where I go and what I use with my couples because there are […]

Brooke + Phillip Make it Official in Del Mar

Where do I begin with this darling woman? I am positive we are kindred spirits after getting to know Brooke. Before I dive into their story, I must thank Rita and Michael Purcell from the bottom of my heart for introducing us and referring me for their wedding day. I’ve known the Purcell’s for about […]

Theresa + Pete Hit a Home Run

I love themed weddings, even when it’s a subject matter I know nothing about. Baseball isn’t my strong suit, but I can appreciate the passion that Theresa and Pete have for the game. And they did a TON of cute tie-ins to their love for the great American past time. Everything from their tables being […]

Taryn + Matthew Make it Official at Marbella

What a great story… These two went through high school together, had their first kiss on her Birthday in Mammoth (a girl after my own heart) and have been a couple ever since. The up’s and down’s of 9 years of life have surely proved that they can stand the test of time. It’s very […]

Hillary “Ty’s the Knot” at The Casino San Clemente

I’ve known the Gerhard girls since about 2009 when her sister found me for her wedding. All three are the most bubbly, fun and sweet young ladies anyone could be lucky enough to know! Theres’s something so incredibly rewarding about photographing more than one family member’s wedding day… Seeing these huge milestones transpire that mean […]

Magic Mammoth Wedding for Steve + Serena

Steve has been a close friend of my brother’s for many years. We’ve brushed shoulders at parties, had some fun snowboard days, even my pup Leroy (who’s afraid of everyone) likes to sit in his lap! So once I heard that he found the one I was immediately invested in photographing it all. Then it […]

Suzanne + Lowell’s Love Story Wedding

Every time I photograph at the lovely Sherman Library and Gardens in Corona Del Mar it’s worthy of showing off. The location boasts a swirling array of flora and fauna that makes for a slam-dunk for wedding photography. However this particular wedding is much more about the story. Once I learned of Suzanne and Lowell’s […]

Brandi + Chelsea’s Beachy Destination Wedding

These two are such a fun couple. I’m so lucky that the talented wedding planner, Kelli Gazich (aka Kelli WithanEye) referred them to me. Because Southern California was to be their destination wedding spot I could initially only chat with them on the phone. However by the time we discussed their needs, did up a […]

Introducing Paige

Although my bio on the website is telling in what I do, a bit of who I am and a lot of my resume factors it doesn’t delve much into the history of my career’s beginnings. By Jr High School when most girls were obsessing over the boy in their class or what dress they’d […]

Jamie and Daniel Wedding at La Venta

I was beyond honored when Jamie and Daniel contacted me to photograph their wedding.  You see, Daniel is a videographer in the industry and has known and worked with many, many wedding photographers over the years.  He not only knows my style, my approach, but the behind the scenes of how I tick.  One of […]

Jennifer + Joe = Love at Wedgewood Golf Club

It’s been such a pleasure working with and getting to know Jenn and Joe.  Everything from our common love of music to dogs (yes Lola and Leroy have met her rescue Beagle, Riley)  I told Jenn that I actually will be sad when her wedding is over because I’ve enjoyed having it to look forward […]
