La Jolla, Alesmith Brewery, and Bali Hai wedding – |Anthony + Lindsey|

Bali Hai Wedding Alesmith photos 01 When I met my fiance he brought me along to my first beer release. A beer release is usually done at a brewery that is putting out a special beer with limited quantity. You go early and stand in a long line for the opportunity to buy this beer. This explains how I met Anthony. I started talking to the friendly guy behind me and it turned out he was a photographer too!  We became friends on Facebook and it was long before I started seeing him at other beer events. I finally got to meet his other half, Lindsey and we hit it off immediately! Over the years we got closer over the love of beer and it blossomed in to a lovely friendship. I was so excited they thought of me for their wedding. Of course we had to include craft beer – Anthony got us special access to the new Alesmith facility to do photos!

Also check out Lindsey’s custom made gown done by Anthony’s cousin Paul! So gorgeous!

La Jolla Engagement – |Kelly + Adam|

I was really excited to hang out with Kelly and Adam and explore a few new spots in La Jolla! Even though we didn’t find the elusive secret swings, we did find some killer views! And their pups joined us at the end of the shoot and were some of the most well behaved dogs I’ve photographed!

Los Angeles Engagement session – |Karina + Javier|

Karina found me after coming across my name looking for a caterer for her wedding. Since then she’s been my #1 fan. She is always so encouraging and kind. She and Javier met at work the rest is history. I drove up to LA – near where they live – to check out some spots that Karina had picked out. They were awesome! I’ve always wanted to shoot at the Walt Disney Concert Hall. We ended the session at sunset at the Santa Monica pier!

Long Beach Engagement Session – |Kelsey + Paul|

When I wanted to start in photography a wonderful woman named Michele took me under her wing. We became fast friends and she is still a very important part of my life. Little did I know that 10+ years later I’d be photographing her eldest daughters wedding! I’m so happy for Kelsey + Paul – they are super hilarious and adorable together. Just hanging around them put me in such a good mood. We headed to the spot where they met and lived in Long Beach. I love getting out of town and shooting in different spots!
