Ahh the days are flying by too quickly, and I can hardly believe the end of the year is right around the corner. Although I am wrapping up my last events of the year, I still have a bunch of unseen weddings to share with you in the coming weeks.

First up is one of the most heartfelt weddings I’ve had a pleasure of being part of. Helena and Nathaniel made their wedding completely personal by making it all about their relationship, families, and life together. Instead of starting the day with getting ready photos, we began with their first look at the always lovely Bowers Museum. They also choose to forgo a wedding party, making the celebration really feel like an intimate celebration. I love when a couple decides to make the day their own; Helena and Nathaniel did this so graciously, and it was a joy to capture this day in their lives!

So often during my shoots I am looking for the perfect background, with beautiful light, and happy smiling faces. The older I get, the more I appreciate true to life, honest photographs of the everyday.

This family holds a very special place in my heart. I was there for the wedding, the newborn photos of their son, and now baby Jimmy has arrived! Watching these two grow into the most amazing parents has been such a pleasure, and I’m even more honored to have documented so many wonderful and joyous moments for them.

Sessions like this remind me why I fell in love with photography in the first place. It’s not always about the perfect shot, but really capturing the moment and the people in it.


Libby and Alex’s wedding had it all. From the ultra cool Millwick in Downtown Los Angeles, to the beakers that held blush, peach and pink flowers. This was truly a representation of their past, present, and future lives together. With the help of The Joy Parade, they incorporated these special touches for Alex who is a scientist, and Libby wore a to die for gold sequin gown that might be my favorite wedding dress EVER!

Looking back through their photos, my heart is filled with love and appreciation for being a small part of their celebration. It was truly a spectacular day full of everything you hope for in a wedding, and much more!

I have to say, I have a soft spot for Melissa and Matt or better know as “M&M”. Ever since their Condors Nest Ranch engagement shoot, I’ve been counting down the days till their big day. They make me feel all the feelings, and I’m incredibly happy I got to meet them both! This was also the third wedding I’ve shot within the same group of friends, so it was wonderful seeing so many familiar faces – especially on the dance floor!

Condors Nest Ranch is a photographers dream, and I just adore all the thoughtful details M&M created for their celebration. Looking through their gallery again make my heart explode, seriously so much goodness.

So without further ado sit back, relax, and get ready for one beautiful moment after the next!

Alicia and Sunal were such a dream to work with on their Laguna Beach engagement shoot. They were so full of joy, even while climbing through the bushes, and and getting soaked in the waves. It was a rather busy afternoon at the beach, but looking through these photos it seems like we were all alone – love it!

I cannot wait for their wedding next year with Pure Lavish Events, it’s going to be awesome!
