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!

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!
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!
Good evening everyone! I am excited to be finally catching up the blog on all of the gorgeous memories, sparkles and love I have had the honor of photographing the last few months. (Someday, I will be better at blogging… I’m working on it!) Taryn and TJ had the perfect celebration of this next chapter in their lives, surrounded by family and close friends, beautiful metallic details, lots of laughs, good food and excitement for what is to come. I absolutely loved photographing their wedding in Ridgecrest!
Merry Christmas!!! I hope you all are having a great holiday with your loved ones! I am so excited to announce this year’s photo contest winners. For the first time we have a tie for second place, so we have 4 winners this year!
First place goes to the adorable Sofia Q! With her first birthday just a few months away, I am so excited to get the opportunity to photograph her again! YAY!
Third place goes to this beautiful family! With Baby #2 due this summer, this is so exciting!!!
Good morning and Happy Friday everyone! I am finally getting to posting all of the amazingness from this busy season. Note to all, do not move during the holiday season when both you and your spouse have not had a single weekend off together in months… or get sick during that time either. Not the best move. 🙁 BUT thankfully we are getting back into a normal groove. So today I am thrilled beyond words to share with you one of my favoritest weddings to date! A Kimberly Crest Wedding means it is automatically going to be elegant, but Katelin and Rick took it to the next level. A local mansion here in Redlands, it is by far one of the prettiest places for a fall wedding. Katelin wore one of the prettiest lace gowns I have ever seen. I could serious gush over it for hours! The bridesmaid gowns, the wildflowers that were from family member’s gardens and the best Derby pie made by Rick’s mother. The entire day was filled with beauty and love. There were so many favorites, but I picked my absolute favorites from this stunning Kimberly Crest Wedding and here they are! Enjoy!
Oh yeah, Katelin surprised her new husband with a brand new car! His dream car! 🙂 What an amazing surprise to top off such a beautiful day!

From couples starting a new life together, anniversaries to celebrate their continuing stories to families preserving the fleeting moments of their growing children. All of these important moments are why I am so lucky to call this my job. Thank you so much!
