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!

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!
