Escondido Engagement Session – |Elise + Bryan|

I like to encourage my couples to incorporate things they love in to their engagement shoot. I knew for these two, that would mean beer! They also wanted to go to the San Diego Safari Park since they are pass holders! We started at the very spot where it all begin – Stone Brewery, the site of their very first date!

Lafayette Hotel San Diego Wedding – |Julian + Ryan|

I’m so thrilled to share this fun wedding. I don’t typically take weddings on my birthday, but Julian and Ryan are something special. They have so much love in their heart for each other and even more to share with their baby girl Hazel Rose! And of course love for Star Wars. Ryan MADE the lightsabers you see in this blog! How freaking cool is that?! It was also my first time at Lafayette Hotel and my little photographer heart melted with all the brick and retro decor!

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!
