Oceanside Portrait Session – {Tanner + Bex}

Bex is a friend from high school that I recently connected with again! Tanner also went to HS with us, but I never talked to him! Which is a bummer because he’s an awesome guy and wonderful hubby to Bex! They eloped and never had professional photos taken so I was stoked to take some pictures for their walls! We started at their house so their baby, Chancho could be in a few photos! After, we grabbed a cocktail at Masters Kitchen in Oceanside and then hightailed it down to the pier for sunset!

Rancho Valencia Elopement – {Jeremy + Audra}

Rancho Valencia Wedding Photos 01 I’m not sure why I waited so long to blog these photos. Maybe because it was such a private celebration, I wanted to keep it that way for awhile. Purely selfish reasons. When your best friend gets married to a man so perfectly meant for her, the emotions can be overwhelming. But their story deserves to be shared. Weddings are about celebration of your love. These two chose exactly that. Intimate, joyous and personal love.

I was joined by the amazing duo, Quixotic Weddings. They captured the elopement perfectly on their video cameras. Go here to experience it that way!

Enjoy viewing my best friends wedding through my lens!

San Diego Zoo Engagement Photography – {Lindsey + Anthony}

I can’t begin to tell you how much I adore these two. Anthony + I met at a beer release many years ago, we were standing together in line. We started chatting and realized we were both photographers! It was a fast friendship with him and Lindsey after that. When they got engaged, I kept my fingers crossed until they contacted me! 😉 Their wedding will be so much fun!

They love spending time at the San Diego Zoo, so it was an obvious choice for their engagement session. After, we went and grabbed a beer at the new craft brew establishment in Balboa Park – Panama66.

Carlsbad State Beach Elopement – {Hunter + Lauren}

Carlsbad State Beach Wedding Photos 01 This may win as most casual wedding last year! Hunter + Lauren absolutely love camping at Carlsbad State Beach – so of course that is where they would choose to get married! It was a small, short standing ceremony on the beach followed by a yummy dinner at the nearby hotel. The night ended with bonfires, laughter and lots of love.
