Dawn + Michael . Palos Verdes Wedding Photographer

As soon as Dawn emailed me, I knew I would love her. She shared pictures of those she loved most … her warmth spilled out of my computer.

I couldn’t wait to meet her in person, and as soon as I did, she was even warmer, brighter, and more lovely then the emails she sent.

Her and Michael compliment each other perfectly, and I was thrilled to have been chosen to document their stunning wedding at the beautiful

La Venta Inn. 

All of their details were created with love. Dawn and Michael’s vision of purple, yellow, rustic linens … it was more then I had ever envisioned!

Dawn + Michael,

Thank you for allowing me to be apart of your amazing day. I wish you love + happiness forever and ever.

xoxo

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.

P + N { Pasadena Wedding Photographer }

These two were nothing short of sweet love.

With their family and friends, Priscyla and Noe said I do at a beautiful location in Pasadena, Ca.

Priscyla prepared for her day in her Mom and Dad’s home, where she grew up.

Capturing her details while surrounded by all of Priscyla’s childhood pictures, it reminded me how

special it was that I was documenting such a big mile stone in her life.

2014-08-01_00012014-08-01_00272014-08-01_00282014-08-01_00022014-08-01_00032014-08-01_00042014-08-01_00052014-08-01_00062014-08-01_0007

While Priscyla waited patiently to see her groom for the very first time that day, Noe was only feet away… nerves wracking, and celebrating with his brothers and close friends.

2014-08-01_00082014-08-01_00092014-08-01_0010

You could feel the emotion beaming from Priscyla’s Dad as he gave his youngest daughter away.

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.

2014-07-28_0032

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

2014-07-28_00332014-07-28_0034

And all of their details… ah! Love!

2014-07-28_00352014-07-28_00362014-07-28_00372014-07-28_00382014-07-28_00392014-07-28_00402014-07-28_00412014-07-28_00422014-07-28_00432014-07-28_00442014-07-28_00452014-07-28_00462014-07-28_0047

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.

2014-07-28_00532014-07-28_00542014-07-28_00552014-07-28_00562014-07-28_00572014-07-28_00582014-07-28_00592014-07-28_00602014-07-28_00612014-07-28_00622014-07-28_00632014-07-28_00642014-07-28_00652014-07-28_00662014-07-28_0067

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.

2014-07-28_0068

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.

Veronica + Deven { Los Angeles Wedding Photographer }

The cool breeze on this May day lingered throughout out the day, paired with love for Veronica and Deven…

Who chose to marry at the home Deven grew up in.

My favorite part was being able to capture all of their details in the place that Deven has so many heartfelt memories.

The first time I met Deven, he was solo… which has never happened to me before.

My brides are always who contact me first. You can imagine how intimated I was…

My accustom to wining and dining, and warming up my brides with girl stuff,  disintegrated as Deven approached my door ( yes, I was peeking out the window! )

Within minutes of chatting with this groom to be, I quickly realized how incredibly cool and collected he was, and it eased my nerves.

I became intrigued with the love story he shared and I was invested in every word as he described his beautiful bride, Veronica.

In honor of Veronica’s late Father, she wrapped a locket he gifted her around her bouquet…

…And placed a flower in his seat!

Their ceremony was filled with sentiment, laughter and love.
