SouthBay Engagement Photographer; Lisa and Matt

southaby_engagement_photographer-1I have mentioned in the past that whenever friends and family

ask to get in front of my camera, my nerves are higher than usual.

I’m settled and comfortable with my craft, confident even…

But having the people I love and care about asking me to document their most precious moments in their lives …

It’s always an honor.

Lisa and Matt are getting married in April of 2017.

They wanted their engagement session to be easy,

reflecting their personalities and their love.

I suggested staying local since their wedding festivities will be here in the SouthBay.

Torrance Beach and Madrona Marsh were our picks… and I think, they were the perfect backdrops for this spring couple!

Los Angeles Wedding Photographer; Marlene + Isaac


Marlene and Isaac found me on The Knot. 

I fell in love with them and their story and knew that I had to document their wedding.

You can see their engagement session here! 

These two married on a beautiful August day.

The weather was warm and welcoming. The details were stunning…

And these two were just as perfect as I expected them to be.

Hope + Jay

Hope and Jay found me through a mutual friend. We were only in contact via email until just a few months before their big day.

As soon as I met Hope, I knew her wedding would be fun, beautiful, and that I would enjoy every minute of it.

I was right!


Hope + Jay had their first glance only feet away from where they would say their vows minutes later.

The emotion and happiness that came from this bride and groom was incredibly sweet and heartfelt.


Hope + Jay,

SWP wishes you a lifetime of love, health, happiness, and continued laughter throughout your many many years of marriage.

Thank You for choosing us to photograph your very special day.

Cheers! xo

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.
