Cactus Garden Balboa Park Wedding – |Joaquin + Jess|

This was a shorter wedding for me, but no less special. I’ve known Jess through my best friend for years. We were Facebook friends and met each other casually but I didn’t really get to know her until she was getting married. Now I can’t imagine not having her in my life! He upbeat attitude, heartwarming smile and kick ass baking skills are just part of what I love about her! And Joaquin is such a good balance for her! Calming, kind and funny! They make quite the power couple! I was thrilled to be able to cover their ceremony and portraits on their wedding day. They were married in the Cactus garden area of Balboa Park which I only discovered recently and am fully obsessed with! 

North Park Engagement Session – |Jordan + Nick|

I’ve known Nick + Jordan for quite a few years and I was so excited to hear they were getting married! They are beer loves like me so we decided to wander around their neighborhood of North Park and hit up some of their favorite spots! Our night ended with some tasty Thai food so I would call the shoot a win! 

Jack’s Pond Couples Session – |Carlos + Bree|

I’ve been doing quite a bit of mentoring the last year and I needed help with a training video so I asked newlyweds Bree + Carlos to come model for me! They SLAYED! They are so adorable and comfortable in front of the camera. Their thank you was a copy of the photos I took! <3

Olowalu Plantation House Wedding, Maui – |Brianna + Brandon|

Brianna + Brandon had one of the funnest and most outgoing personalities of any of my clients. These two love to have FUN. And I wanted to show that in their images. Their dance party was off the hook – the floor was packed the entire night with B+B right smack dab in the middle. They wanted a vintage laid-back Hawaii wedding and Cherise with The Perfect Maui Wedding really delivered. My favorite detail? The huge Love sign right on the shore!

Oh and extra cool bonus points – this wedding was featured on Every Last Detail today. How lucky am I?

Carlsbad Elopement Photographer |Kevin + Tina|

I met Tina two years ago when she came to me for some photos of herself. She was jumping in to the world of online dating and wanted nice and professional images to share on Match.com. Well, shortly after she posted the photos she got a message from a handsome, tall gentleman named Kevin who told me that it was her photos that drew him to her. You guys! How cool is this?! I was a teeny part of their love story and that makes the romantic in me scream from the rooftops! Of course I was thrilled when they asked me to be part of the next chapter – their elopement! They were married earlier in the day and we met up that evening for some portraits around their neighborhood!
