Happy Friday! I am so thrilled to have a new weekend ahead of us to spend with with our loved ones. Today I am sharing one of my favorite weddings to date! Katelyn and Mike had a fabulous backyard wedding here in Southern California, it was perfect! Katelyn’s vision was romantic, fun, timeless with a strong theme of love. Surrounded by their strong community of family and friends, they said their vows. They honored those who have set an example of strong family values, it was beautiful. The flowers, the dresses, the beautiful California glowing sunlight, rustic DIY details were all stunning and truly the perfect compliment to the new chapter of their lives together. I am so honored to have been able to document such a special day, congratulations again to you all!
Baby Reid Michael made his debut March 10th and he could not be more perfect! I cannot get over how adorable he is and what a pro snuggle bug he is already! Here is a little preview of how I spent my morning. AH!
Happy Wednesday everyone! I hope your week is going well. I am so excited to be sharing one of my favorite film engagement sessions with you all this morning. Jenny and Andrew are two of the sweetest people I have ever had the pleasure of meeting, especially because I met Andrew when he was like 3 or 4. 😉 When they moved out to Southern California for Andrew to begin his medical school journey I was thrilled to have them close by. Andrew proposed to Jenny over the holidays while on diving trip in Bonaire – raising the bar for everyone! Jenny contacted me for engagement photos shortly after the new year and since our winter in California looks like this, we were able to schedule it right away. The icing on the cake? Their adorable and awesome pup Hans came along and joined in the fun. Dogs on film are almost as awesome as my amazing couples! Their wedding is in Oregon this summer and I may be so excited that I already ordered boxes of film, have a countdown on my desktop and am stalking their venue on social media to dream up some more beautiful shots for these two love birds. I can’t wait!
So here is your daily dose of pretty to get you through the middle of the week blues. 😉 Enjoy!
More film engagement sessions are coming to the blog this week and next. I’m officially hooked guys! I am currently looking for some wedding designers, vendors and a model couple to participate in a styled film shoot in Southern California. Stay tuned for more details!
Also our 10% discount for all wedding collections has been extended through the end of March. If you or someone you know is getting married send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org 2016 is almost full and 2017 is filling up. I am so thankful for all of my amazing couples and could not be more excited to capture more beautiful moments for you all.
Have a great day everyone!
So this happened this past weekend! Good grief spring is looking mighty fabulous here in SoCal! I so love this couple, their sweet connection and these trees just blew me away. I can’t wait to share the rest. Waiting for film scans is worse than counting down to Christmas these days. 😉 So until then, here is one of my favorites.
Happy new week everyone!
I’m over here at home just counting down the days until Baby P makes her (or his) debut! Taryn and TJ are waiting to find out if baby is a boy or girl and I am so so excited to meet baby! Taryn you are positively radiant! I can’t wait to see you holding your sweet bebe. <3
I know that I love on my clients a lot and get mushy when I talk about them. But after the last several months of exhaustion, illness after illness (more on that later), and being burned out it is necessary to give context of why I LOVE my job! I wouldn’t stay up until 2am after a hard day with two sick kids for just any job. I really really look forward to connecting, reliving and fine-tuning the memories that I was lucky enough to capture. Every so often I meet a couple that I absolutely adore and we “click”. Katelyn and Mike are definitely two people that I want to have over for dinners, meet up for coffee and literally talk for hours about relationships, life goals, dogs and kids, work and the life changing events that shape us and who we are in our relationships. Their chemistry, sweet smiles, dedication of moving across the country to build their relationship all told their unique and beautiful story. As many of you know I gave away 3 engagement sessions to kick off the new year and celebrate with some newly engaged people. I am SO thankful that I did because Katelyn emailed me and this happened! (Enter squeals of excitement here!)
I seriously cannot wait for their wedding in June! Two people coming together and starting a new chapter with their close friends and family, twinkle lights and tacos is why I pour that 5th cup of coffee at 8pm and get to work. Thankful and blessed to say the least. <3
Hello all! Happy Wednesday! I cannot believe this busy week is already half way over. I am quite impatient waiting for my film scans to come back so I wanted to share a tiny preview of Lesley & Rob’s Temecula Engagement Session. These hills and trees were too perfect to pass up for Lesley’s vision of open space and rustic surroundings. The clouds provided us with some amazing mood-lighting but when the sun peeked out for 3 minutes, it was perfection! Trust me, there will definitely be more gushing over my best friend and her man, but for now I leave you with a small sampling of my absolute favorites!
If you want to see more of these two, follow me on IG and Facebook for more sneak peeks. You can also see their proposal photos here, as well as their How He Asked feature.
So much happiness! 🙂 Hope you all have a spectacular day!
