Jessica + Henry . Los Angeles Wedding Photographer

These two met me when my house was in shambles… literally. And held no judgment against me ( thankfully! )

They shared all of their details, their vision, and their dream while boxes and movers passed by them!!!!!

It would be a beautiful day in June. No boxes. No movers. Just them. Surrounded by those they love most.

Amanda + Anthony { Temecula Wedding Photographer }

Tucked away in the hills between Temecula and Hemet is a quaint, beautiful venue named ” Owl Creek Inn.”

Amanda and Anthony were born and raised here in  California, but relocated to a small town in Montana.

They wanted their wedding to reflect their lives in Montana and Amanda wanted ” big oak trees.”

Her google search lead her to this stunning place, and this is where they chose to celebrate their union.

Big, beautiful, and lush oak trees graced this amazing property.

And all of their details… ah! Love!

While their guests sipped champagne and lemonade, we walked the property and the love between these two, it was such an honor to be chosen to document it.

The sun was in our favor and it gave us the most incredible lighting. It was romantic, still, and perfect.

I must say though, from all of the details, the big oak trees, and the love between these two newlyweds…

Nothing compared to the love and happiness that seeped from every person at their reception.

Watching it and soaking it in… it was incredible how present and happy everyone was for this bride and groom.

And the dancing…. oh, the dancing. Again, another heart-felt happening at this joyous occasion.

2014-07-28_00692014-07-28_0070

Congratulation to these two. May your life be abundant in love + happiness. Health, prosperity and joy.

Bozeman: Los Angeles Newborn Photographer

I have had the pleasure of photographing these kiddos in the past.

All of them are beautiful, lively, lovely, kind hearted, and their spirits are pure!

2014-07-11_0017

Their Mama, Meghan, is one of my favorites. She is incredibly calm and confident in her Mama skills. ( I believe that’s the main ingredient in having happy babies!)

Meet the newest addition to this beautiful family ….

He fit in just perfectly. His older brothers and sisters gathered around him, proud as can be!

Colleen + Sergio Wedding

When I met Colleen + Sergio I knew right away that I would enjoy working with them.

These two are unique, kind hearted, easy going, and adventurous.

We discussed their plans over tea and instantly knew their love was one of a kind.

2014-07-07_0001

Their vision was clear to see. They would have a spring wedding with their first look at Loyola University.

It was a perfectly, cool -crisp day in March and as soon as I arrived,

I could feel their love and emotions while surrounded by their Maid of Honor- Colleen’s sister, Sergio’s Best Man, and Colleen’s Mother.

You could feel every emotion through out this experience…

This is Colleen seeing her groom for the very first time.

Collen and Sergio married in the beautiful and historical St. Augustine Catholic Church

And they chose to walk down the aisle together, to honor Colleen’s Irish heritage!

The reception was hosted at another historical monument in Los Angeles county… the stunning Culver Hotel.

We headed that way and captured some bridal portraits of the newlyweds before their

Grand announcement where they were greeted by their special guests and loved ones….

It gave me the perfect opportunity to catch the candids that every bride and groom loves!
