Recent work throughout Southern California and a bit of personal life in between
As we began discussing their engagement session, Grace + David had envisioned a wide open space, something along the lines of a wildflower field or tall green grass. However, as we all know, SoCal hasn’t gotten much rain this year, which posed a bit of a challenge for their early March session. Thankfully after much scouting + debating, we were finally able to find a location that perfectly suited their vision + provided a beautiful setting for their engagement photos.
Melanie and Brent love the beach, so they decided it would be the perfect setting for their engagement session. Finding a dog friendly beach was key, since their shoot wouldn’t be complete without including their fur babies Peter + Appa.
The beach can tend to photograph a bit flat, so we chose a spot with rocks and tide pools to provide more depth and dimension to their images.
Shay + David are expecting their first baby girl in just a few short weeks. We had such a nice day strolling through the gardens while documenting this exciting new adventure they will be embarking on as new parents.
The LA Arboretum provided all of the elements Shay + David were looking for when they envisioned the dream backdrop for their maternity session. The expansive gardens provided the perfect vignettes for a variety of textures + colors.
Proposals are so fun yet so stressful to photograph! There’s such a huge level of anticipation & excitement … I can only imagine what Luke was experiencing!
Last fall I had the privilege of attending a photography workshop hosted my dear friend Katrina Jayne & Jane Alexandra Events at Allegretto Vineyards in Paso Robles. It was the perfect opportunity to take some time away from my daily tasks to be inspired, to connect with fellow creative entrepreneurs, & to set new goals.
You’ve spent countless days, months, maybe even years planning your dream wedding. The countdown is on & then a worldwide pandemic hits. Your life has been turned upside down & all of that excitement has now transformed into stress & overwhelm as you start thinking through all of the work that needs to be done to postpone. While I realize that it doesn’t change the situation, I just want you to know that you’re not alone.
In honor of what would have been our wedding date, I decided this would be the perfect time to share our engagement photos. With the wedding being postponed until next year due to the coronavirus outbreak, I couldn’t be more grateful to have our engagement photos to stare at until our new wedding date is here.
The Ebell of Los Angeles provided the perfect ambiance for Julia & Jeremy’s elegant black tie wedding. If I had to choose my favorite moment from their wedding day, it would have to be their first look … Julia was overflowing with excitement & anticipation & Jeremy’s tearful reaction was the absolute cutest! Congratulations Mr. & Mrs. Davis! Thank you so much for choosing me to document such a momentus day!
While we’re all in self-quarantine & stuck at home, I figured I could share some beauty with you in the midst of this time of uncertainty. Earlier this year I had the opportunity to go to London with my childhood bestie. Tiffany & I [yep we’ve got the same name] met in jr. high & have been close ever since … 23 years to be exact! When she first mentioned the possibility of me coming to visit her in London it felt like a once in a lifetime opportunity & I jumped at the chance.
From the delicate details, to the fleeting moments, to the candid expressions, my number one priority as your wedding photographer is to create imagery that takes you right back to how you felt in that exact moment.
Through intentional composition, I strive to zero in on the moments you likely didn’t even notice. Memories are so much more than details … they’re feelings. With every click of my shutter, I want to bring your vision to life while allowing you to be deeply present.
