Lovely wedding at Tivoli Too, in Laguna Beach. <3 One of the best venues for lighting (if you are a photographer or videographer---you would drool...lol). These two were a JOY to photograph and loved just the candid stuff...well they got the right photographer (one of two)! :)
Very fun wedding...I'll keep the text short and sweet, the images speak for themselves! ;) lol
Say hello to Chris & Mary! I got along so well with these two we literally spend 3 hours shooting...laughing and shooting some more. We started the shoot at the Walt Disney hall in downtown LA and finished up at LACMA. These guys are getting hitched this November and I honestly cannot wait! They are fabulous as a couple, and honestly I believe we will stay in touch even after their wedding day...always a great feeling to connect with my clients! <3
So this was a day that I literally felt like a kid on Christmas morning...I was full of excitement and i LITERALLY could not wait to get to the venue and start shooting...no kidding, I was giddy! What was so thrilling you ask?? Try a 12 hour Indian wedding full of all the beautiful traditions that go along with it!! <3 These two did NOT have a typical arranged marriage and I tell you they were so in love it was a breeze to document for them!! Just another for the record books of why I love my job. Did I mention they arrived VIA helicopter to their grand entrance...oh and they were married on the actual helipad at the Marriott Marina Del Rey...talk about swanky! Helicopter photos coming soon...but in the mean time enjoy these few as a sneak peek!
So this weekend I had the awesome pleasure of driving up to Santa Barbara for a VERY fun wedding! Meet Alex & Kelsey. <3
Alex & Kelsey were a breeze to work with, super laid back and just happy! The two were very excited to tie the knot and share this special day with their family and friends...and I was stoked they picked me to document it for them through photographs!

Meet Hector & Consuelo, two people who were lucky enough to find one another and fall madly in love! <3
These images were taken for Harvard Photography (yes I DO contract work too...gotta stay busy all the time ya know!?). The ceremony was at a little catholic church only 5 minutes away from the Green Parrot and was a wonderful way to begin the day!

I have MISSED having the internet since my move to Long Beach, CA this past week...but I am back and ready to show off some great images from the weddings in the past two weeks! :)
First one up...
This wedding was photographed in Laguna Beach, CA---getting ready images taken at the Inn of Laguna and the Ceremony/Reception at Tivoli Too. <3 This couple and the day went off beautifully! Enjoy--
Kevin & Kea...what can I say. They could NOT stop laughing & giggling (yes there is a difference between the two!) and were just so easy and fun to photograph! <3 I cannot wait until their wedding on June 7th this year. We decided to shoot down at Venice beach...my first time photographing here and I loved it...lots of color and funky alley ways...a photographers dream!
Kevin & Val were so happy to have their photographs taken in GORGEOUS Laguna beach...and I gotta to say, I am LOVING using the Montage resort as a backdrop anytime! Their wedding date will be September 6th, 2014 and I KNOW its going to be a blast!! <3 Much love to you guys, and I cannot wait to photograph your wedding!

Well this is something different for the blog! For those of you who do not know, I LOVE babies! <3 They are so small, easily loveable and wonderful to photograph (when they are happy and unhappy!). I shot this at a local Studio I do occasional work for (don't worry, they allow me to show off my work here too!). Take a moment and enjoy this baby-wonderfulness! For ONLY being 6 days old this little guy is already so alert and bright eyed! :)
Cheers & thanks for stopping by!
WOW. It has been a while since I last had the time to post to my blog!
This one is worth the wait however ;) Please meet Alex & Sarah. I have known Alex for quite some time (we used to be co-workers back in High School), and I just had the priveleage to meet Sarah! These two were a lot of fun to photograph (is it not ALWAYS cool when you get the opportunity to shoot people you know?). We shot at Hermann Park, in Houston Texas...and it was a PERFECT day for the shoot.
Alex & Sarah are getting married in Austin, TX on July 26th this year...I cannot wait to fly in and be apart of their big day! X0X0- <3 THESE TWO!
I had the pllllleasure to photography these two this afternoon in Laguna Beach! :)
We started at Tivoli Too, and then headed to the Montage resort...all in beautiful Laguna! These two were a ton of fun and it hardly felt like work, which is always a good thing! <3 I cannot wait until their wedding, June 21st 2014.
Okay, so seriously these two made my job 1) so enjoyable and 2) EASY.
I do not mean EASY as in it was easy to do, but easy as it was AWESOME having a couple that was GREAT in-front of the camera and USED to it. This HARDLY happens. <3
They both currently live in Las Vegas, and DANCE. You can prolly tell by some of the images...they are a stellar couple and I cannot wait to photograph their wedding for George Street.
Super fun, sunny California day for these two! Their wedding was held at the Balboa Bay Club in Newport beach. This was a wedding shot alongside Chris Darnall. This day was so much fun that at the reception we had the pleasure of photographing and watching a Cirque de Soleil performer! I <3 my job.
Short & Sweet....
This was a very EMOTIONAL wedding. Alexandria met Tim. They went through a HUGE amount of love and tribulation before being married, Alex was diagnosed with vocal cord cancer, a singer and she survived and thrived. She is a beautiful and courageous woman and has met a man who will not only stand by her side through thick & thin...but is MADLY in love with her! Here are a few images from their day...
So excited to post a few images from this past Saturday's wedding! This couple was PUMPED from the get-go and ready to get hitched...I LOVE that of course! This makes my job so much easier when the bride and groom are gleeeeming with excitement to exchange vows and become one. ;)
The pictures alone will give you an idea of how much FUN this couple was! I typically LOVE boats, but this day I was in heaven. <3
From the moment I met Tiffanie and Raul, I knew this was going to be a wedding I would not want to miss photographing! The love they have for one another and the love that their families have for them is HUGE. Their wedding was truly a blast, and even I could NOT stop smiling most of the day and into the wee-hours of the evening. :)
Please enjoy the sneak peek for these two...and feel free to leave any comments you would like! Thank you for visiting!
