Palm Springs Engagement session – |Heather + Bill|

I absolutely adore the vibe and colors that Palm Springs has to offer. I jump at any chance to shoot there! And the town is extra special to Bill + Heather since they met at Stagecoach! We hit up some popular locations and ended with the most gorgeous light in the desert! <3 And then of course, back to the Saguaro hotel for a tasty margarita! And of course, I have to give a shout out to Heather’s amazing Marchesa dress!

Kona Kai San Diego Wedding – |Alex + Katie|

Katie and Alex had the most beautiful bay side wedding at the Kona Kai Resort. I got a little teary during Katie’s first look with her dad!! And that bouquet?! OMG! Contender for one of my top 5 bouquets ever. The party was rocking with DJ Dre Motion on the dance floor! Check out those moves down below by my good friend Tessa!! Venue: Kona Kai Resort

Balboa Park Engagement – |Kelsey + Peter|

Oh Balboa Park – you never disappoint! Even when you are packed with tourists, I can still find nooks and crannies to shoot in!
Even if we have to avoid a superhero shoot and inappropriate sculptures…it’s always an adventure! And so much fun with these two!!

Maricopa Manor, Phoenix Wedding – |Drew + Samantha|

arizona photographerOne reason I love destination weddings so much is that I get to shoot in new spots and I get so inspired! Although this wasn’t a technical destination wedding as the couple is local to Phoenix, I had to travel so I count it for me! 🙂 They took me to Roosevelt Row in downtown Phoenix which was a photography heaven! The could not have been more perfect. Weather was mild, the people were amazing. I had so much getting to know Samantha over the years as she was a bridesmaid in a past wedding! It was an incredible introduction to my first (and hopefully not last!) Arizona wedding!

An Oceanside Elopement – |Rachael + Tymon|

You may recognize these two from their rainy day engagement session in March! And you will get to see them again after I photograph their larger ceremony an reception later this year! But these two chose to become husband and wife in April with the help of the awesome Reverend Tuttle and his Military Monday’s program. He offers FREE elopements to active duty military every Monday! How beautiful is his heart? Other vendors also donate their time, myself included. The fantastic Desiree with PennyBlooms Floral created Rachael’s stunning bouquet! He is a sneak peek at their intimate ceremony and a few photos around the property of Oceanside Marina Suites after!
