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!

Hilton Mission Bay Wedding – |Ben + Sara|

Mission bay Hilton wedding 01 This wedding was a bit different for me – the bride is a very good friend of mine. She really wanted me to be there as a guest so we made a deal. I shot the first half of the wedding and then turned in to a guest for the reception! I had an awesome team of photographers to cover the reception for me. It was a blast to be able to put down my camera and boogie the night away! Ben + Sara are such a fun couple to hang out with. And their friends were no different! I laughed so hard the entire day!

Denver Engagement Session – |Amanda + Matt|

Oh I’m so excited to share these! I met Amanda on a local photographer’s Facebook group. We had chatted quite a bit about our own wedding planning and our unique details (can’t give away too much before the big day!) Little did I know that I would get to meet her for the first time (and her very sweet fiance Matt) at their engagement shoot in Denver! And the next time I see them will be their August wedding! We had a total blast exploring downtown Denver, chatting about beer, photography and just about everything else! It’s always nerve-wracking to photograph another photographer but Amanda was so sweet and complimentary – especially when she saw their photos. I can’t wait to hang out with these two again very soon!

Encinitas Engagement Session – |Shannon + Mike|

A little over two years ago, a boisterous chick with bright pink lipstick shimmied her way over to our table. I was taken with her immediately. A chance meeting the following day at a Tristan Prettyman concert sealed our #instantbff friendship. I’m thrilled to stand up next to her in her wedding to Mike in August.  Mike is the yang to her yin. The peanut butter to hear brightly colored jelly. They could not be more different yet a more perfect match. I won’t be able to photograph their wedding (Go Pro in my bouquet maybe?) but I was thrilled to take their engagement photos! We stuck close to where they live and ended at the beach where Mike proposed!
