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 […]

Update on Life!

Ok, how in the world is it already February? I realized I have not posted a blog in an embarrassing amount of time. Yes, this isn’t the time of year where I am doing a lot of shoots… and all this rain hasn’t helped with that either. But other than sharing & showing fun shoots […]

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 […]

Family Heritage Theme for the Mendoza’s

I met Amber and Alejandro before they tied the knot over 7 years ago, having the true honor of photographing their wedding day. Since then I’ve seen them have two beautiful children, capturing both the pregnancy and newborn milestones. And now here we are all these years later with Vicki at 2 years and Gabby […]

Take Me Out to the Ballgame

First thing in the morning I check my email to find a girl named Theresa reaching out to know if I am available on April 16, 2016 and what kind of deposit I’d need to reserve the date… that was fun! I had no idea where she found me but it was clear that she […]

The Ranch at Bandy Canyon -Hayley and Paul’s Rustic Wedding

The McGuire’s are quiet a remarkable family. By the end of the evening I was wishing I could somehow be a long lost relative of theirs! Hayley and her sisters are so kind to one another and her parents, Joan and Brian, are straight out of postcard… just loving, kind, easy to be around and […]

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 […]

Lara + Chris celebrate at Anaheim White House

Lara had me intrigued from her bubbly personality via email.  She found me off the preferred vendor list at one of my favorite restaurants, The White House.  By the time we actually met in person I knew we were going to have a lot of fun chatting together.  I am already biased because the food […]

Hillary and Tyler’s Double Engagement Shoot!

Everyone comes to me through so many different avenues.  I was lucky enough to find Hillary’s sister Becky years ago (scratching my head as to how she found me!) and now it’s Hillary’s turn to get hitched.  She said that the first thing she did after setting the date is call me because she knows […]

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 […]

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 […]

Renee and James romantic Newport + Balboa soiree

These two were so much fun to work with!  The camera loves both of them, and by the time we were about half way into their day I couldn’t help but call them “Barbie and Ken”  She’s the blonde beauty and he’s the all American type of handsome.  Together they made my job so easy!!! […]

The Giemont’s Vow Renewal at Pacific Club, Irvine

There have been many goose bump moments in my career.  So many times I am reminded why I love the work I do and am nudged with it’s meaning.  This one is a huge “must share” day!  I met Sonya and Garrett over 10 years ago as they were preparing to embark on their wedding. […]

The Motels + Duke Michaels Band at The Cave, Big Bear Lake

One of my biggest passions in life is music.  If I went blind and could no longer take a photograph, if my knees crumbled and I had to forgo snowboarding, mtn biking, hiking, if my taste buds disintegrated and the “foodie” in me no longer could exist I would still find a fulfilling comfort in […]

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 […]

Wayfarers Chapel, Magical Day

Amy and Greg are such a great example of making their wedding day completely custom to their lifestyle.  They kept it small because “we wanted to start our lives together yesterday”.  And without dropping a huge windfall on the typical wedding expectations they were free to do a couple splurges yet make it super fun […]

Mark and Lisa’s Beach Wedding at Camp Pendleton

Everyone finds me in such a unique way.  I’ve been lucky enough to have been dropped into a lap(top) via google searches, guests who see me working hard at an event, and of course the friend of a friend of a co-worker’s Mom LOL.  Mark and Lisa found me thanks to my peaceful home in […]

Red Horse Barn hosts Kelly and Cody’s country wedding

What a super fun day!  Kelly and Cody prove you can stay within a budget yet still create so many fun detail and decor items to enchant your guests.  The theme was country chic and they did not disappoint!  Cowboy boots on the bride and all bridesmaids were a fun touch, mason jars hanging with […]
