September Session Sale going on NOW!

This is the biggest one yet! After much time and consideration, weighing the evolution of photography and client’s wants/needs I knew it was time to restructure. With digital photography being so accessible it’s hard to understand why a photographer would want to hold the files and make prints for you… I get that. So now […]

Santa Monica Play Date with Steve + Ana

Ana and Steve are my new favorite couple right now… I only met them about a week ago but their love story is so powerful I was immediately sold. In fact, it’s SO good that I am going to make you wait until I post from their wedding day in August to share it. Cliffhanger!!! […]

Not Your Parents’ Winter Formal!

As I kick off 2016 with lots of inquiries for weddings, meetings with brides and contracts getting signed it’s so fun to break from the usual stuff to do something really special for my dear friend’s daughter. I’ve known this sweet face since she was born… seen her go from stumbling and babbling with her […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

March Madness Print Sale

A country girl finds her cowboy

It’s so much fun when I have a definite theme to work within.  Kelly and Cody are such a cute couple, and their whole wedding scheme will be a country vibe.  Everything from their venue, The Red Horse Barn, to her license plate (a derivative of cowgirl) speaks volumes of their lifestyle.  I knew this […]

Melissa and Corey- Westin South Coast Plaza

Melissa and Corey are the kind of couple anyone would work with over and over again.  From our first meeting where they were kind, thoughtful and gentle with what they were looking for to the wedding day itself where they continued to be gracious and calm amongst the big family trees, these two are a […]

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 […]

Kelly + Darren + Nixon Library = FUN!

Another beautiful day working with Ashley of Agape Planning at The Nixon Library and Gardens.  I’ve spent many days at this venue and never tire of it’s architecture or magical gardens.  Kelly and Darren added so much vibrance to the feel of Nixon with their big smiles, laughs and positive energy.  They’re always so happy […]

Hermosa Hosting the Conn Clan

After photographing Cindy and Nate’s engagement, big BEAUTIFUL Malibu wedding and the newborn moments of their first child it was a breeze to plan their family (and Noah’s 1 year) shoot.  Cindy had her heart set on using Hermosa Beach which holds a lot of sentimental value for them.  But also is very local considering […]

Sweet little Makenna- Newborn Shoot

If you follow my blog I seem to always want to share my shoots with Jess and Doug.  Everything from their colorful, modern engagement session… their gorgeous wedding day at Hyatt Huntington… their pregnancy shoot (recently)… so it seems only natural to show off their pride and joy.  Meet Makenna!  She’s so tiny for a […]

SEPTEMBER SESSION SALE 2013– It’s that time!

Tis the season for The Nix Family

I can somehow never resist posting a blog of one of my favorite families, the Nix’s.  If you follow me regularly you’ll know that I photographed Stefanie and Mark’s wedding back in 2006 and have had the honor of documenting the highlights of their family as they grow.  You can then also piece together that […]
