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 […]

Leslie and John’s Magical Disney Destination Wedding

Leslie and John found me thanks to a very dear client/friend. I knew before I met them that they’d be an amazing couple based on their friendship with such a wonderful woman who sent them my way (thanks again Ana!) We sat down together one afternoon and with a blink of an eye 2 hours […]

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 […]

Fabiano Family Fun

I adore this family… Honestly, I think I know them better than I really do just from seeing them throughout the years. I photographed 2 of the 3 siblings weddings (in all fairness I didn’t know Vicki when she got married) so I’ve seen some really special moments of their lives through my lens. Now […]

Dane + Angela a Hyatt Huntington Beach Wedding

Dane and Angela came to me thanks to the awesome referral from the one ‘n only Wendy Dahl of Chic Productions. She’s been in the business about as long as me (which is bragging rights for us!) and anyone who hires her seems to be a direct fit for me too. These two did not […]

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 […]

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 […]

Michele + Siegfried at The Decorative Arts Villa, San Juan Capistrano

I’m not sure which I am more enamored by, the venue itself or this couple’s awesome love story… I hadn’t done an event at The Villa in years, therefore behind those beautiful wooden doors I pass often, I finally had the opportunity to see all that has been refurbished and remodeled by the newer owners. […]

From a Different Perspective, Jamie + Kody’s Dreamy Day

This is such an interesting one to share… I rarely “second shoot” (where the main photographer hires you in to shoot candidly as a second perspective of photos to merge with theirs). Back in the late 90’s that was how I got my start, shooting for other photographers as their side-kick documenting from an outside, […]
