No matter your relationship status during this time of year, we can’t ignore the roses, cards, chocolate, chocolate cake, chocolate cupcakes, chocolate ice cream… choc… oh sorry, I got distracted… and, of course, LOVE. Valentine’s Day is quickly approaching and I truly hope there is LOVE in your life. Love is a beautiful thing and whether it’s with your soulmate, your best friend, your family, your dog or your cat… everyone deserves LOVE in their life because there is ALWAYS more room for it. You may have to take some huge risks to find it or get hurt in the process, but we all deserve to find it in any form and we’ve got to keep fighting for it. Love is louder than so many things and I, personally, hope to find true love someday so I can share my heart with someone who wants to share their heart with me.

When you’re having a Southern California wedding, but live in New York City, it only makes sense to do your engagement photos in NYC, right?? 🙂 Well, I think it definitely makes sense and this was one of the best engagements sessions of 2015! Jennie & Travis flew me out to their beloved city back in September and we spent the weekend walking around (what seemed like) the entire Manhattan area to get so many lovely photos of the two of them!! It was a weekend I’ll never forget… the food, Wicked on Broadway, listening to Ed Sheeran and Coldplay in Central Park, the FOOD, exploring Brooklyn… it was all just perfect. THANK YOU to Jennie & Travis for an amazing weekend!!

I had SO much fun hanging out with Lauren & Josh during their engagement session this past Spring! Besides being really, really, ridiculously good looking, these two are so so sweet. They are always smiling and laughing with each other and it’s completely contagious. I love LOVE and these two made it so easy for me to do my “job”. We started our session downtown at the ballpark and made our way up the coast to finish at sunset at Torrey Pines. Their big day is TOMORROW and I just can’t WAIT!!!
Congratulations Lauren & Josh!!! Thank you for trusting me with this time in your lives and I look forward to celebrating with you!!
These two won’t be engaged for long! They are getting married TODAY!!! I know this blog has been silent for awhile, but I hope to turn that around soon. How about today?! 🙂 I couldn’t be more excited to share Aly & Brian’s engagement session. They were complete naturals in front of the camera! Their chemistry is natural and their love for each other is obvious. AND they brought their German Shepard, Maddie, along for photos too!! She took some lessons from mom and dad and was a perfect model also! 😉 I encourage all (well-behaved) fur babies to join engagement sessions.
Aly & Brian – I can’t WAIT for today’s celebration!!! See you soon!!! XOXO
I’m not sure where to start since this blog post is WAY overdue, but we’ll just hold hands and jump in together, shall we?? Peggy & Eion were the sweetest couple and I’m so grateful for the honor of photographing their destination wedding in Hawaii!! Family and friends came from Vancouver, BC and Taiwan for the festivities. It was a 3-day adventure full of wonderful food, beach adventures, fabulous dresses (and SHOES) and of course, LOVE. Sit back, relax and enjoy this small glimpse of Peggy & Eion’s Hawaiian Celebration!!

Day 2 on the beach! Engagement photos with Peggy & Eion. They finally had the chance to relax and have some FUN with just each other. Such a lovely afternoon!
And last, but not least…the wedding day…
Just a little bling to start the day.
Not a bad view, eh?
Ready to get married!
Next up…time to party at The Kahala Hotel & Resort!
A little rain couldn’t damper the post-ceremony portraits.
No Hawaiian wedding is complete without fire dancers!
Perfect end to a perfect weekend. ALOHA!
These two got married a few months back and I figured it was time to share their engagement session! Michael & Brie were so much fun to hang out with and so easy to photograph. Uh…and can you tell they are in great shape too??!! I felt like I needed to go run a few miles and lift some weights after hanging with these two! 😉 In all seriousness, Michael & Brie are active, in shape, healthy, an inspiration and so in love!! Thank you two for such a lovely day!
ALSO, Michael is an MMA fighter and fighting for the Bellator Lightweight World Title on Saturday! Wish him luck by heading down to the Valley View Casino Center this weekend and watching the fight!
Well, I guess it’s about time I blogged this engagement session since these two love birds are getting married TOMORROW!! I’ve spent a lot of time with Ryan & Caitlin (since I share an office with Ryan) and I’m so so excited to be a part of their wedding celebration! It’s going to be an A-mazing day and can’t wait to share more with you soon. Until then, please enjoy these photos we took up in the mountains! … Palomar Mountain, that is… 🙂
In case you couldn’t tell already, they love to laugh together… A LOT!
Oh heyyyyyyy…. wonder why this one didn’t make it onto the save the date card?? It was my favorite. 😉
This cat was crazy. I love cats, but this one was seriously CRAZY.
I think the cat bit Ryan soon after this photo…
