Scripps Seaside Forum Wedding – {David + Natalie}

What can I say about these two except I absolutely adore them!  I first met Natalie when she was a bridesmaid in another wedding.  Then I shot their NYC engagement session and got to know David!  I swear, if we lived on the same coast, these two would be some of our closest friends!  David is from South Africa and I loved listening to his friends and family talk the entire night!  Such great accents.  The whole wedding was such a love fest – exactly how it should be!  Props to the Ah-Mazing planning skills of Erin Donoghue – I know she was a huge help to the couple planning long distance and they day went perfectly which credit due to her!  xo

Heritage Park & Marina Village Wedding – {Dave + Andrea}


Andrea may win the award for my most laid-back bride!  She was there to marry her love, Dave and spend time with friends and family. No drama, no stress.  Such a fun relaxing day for everyone! I didn’t even meet the couple until the day of!  Andrea works for an Adventure Travel company so they took a killer honeymoon to Fiji & New Zealand.  How can I break in to the honeymoon photography business?! ha! heritage_park_wedding_02 heritage_park_wedding_03 heritage_park_wedding_04 heritage_park_wedding_05 heritage_park_wedding_06 heritage_park_wedding_07 heritage_park_wedding_08 heritage_park_wedding_09 heritage_park_wedding_10 heritage_park_wedding_11 heritage_park_wedding_12 heritage_park_wedding_13 heritage_park_wedding_14 heritage_park_wedding_15 heritage_park_wedding_16 heritage_park_wedding_17 heritage_park_wedding_18 heritage_park_wedding_19 heritage_park_wedding_20 heritage_park_wedding_21 heritage_park_wedding_22 heritage_park_wedding_23 heritage_park_wedding_24 heritage_park_wedding_25

San Marcos Courthouse Wedding – {Justin + Ngoc}

 I love shooting elopements, there’s something different and exciting about them.  The people closest to you in life are there (sometimes) and it’s about you, your significant other and your vows. And just like that…you are married!  I met Justin + Ngoc at the County Recorders office and after we headed over to Lakeview Park for some more photos!  It was fun getting to know them and their story of long distance love (Ngoc moved here to be with Justin 2 months ago after 5 years of being together!)  Congrats you two!  I wish you nothing but happiness in your life together!

Ngoc’s stunning bouquet is by the talented Floral Palette! 2013-05-30_0008
