June Gloom was in full force last month, but that didn’t put a damper of this sweet engagement shoot! These two quickly brightened overcast skies, and were all smilies throughout the afternoon. You can just feel their excitement, and I cannot wait to see their wedding unfold in just a few short weeks thanks to the help of Mad Love Events. Special thanks to Serene Bridal Beauty for hair and makeup!
I have been waiting to share this wedding for what feels like a lifetime! Fabi and Thomas were married in May, but I have been so busy with wedding season that I’m just now getting a moment to share their spectacular day.
I truly believe that each wedding I’m invited to document is uniquely beautiful. However, every once in awhile a wedding comes along with the perfect mix of style, location, simplicity and heart. Fabi and Thomas’s Demetria Estate wedding in the Santa Ynez Valley was all that and so much more.
Having only met them in person the day before their wedding, I quickly noticed the connection between Fabi and Thomas. They have a quiet, yet fiercely strong love that you can just feel. Photographing their celebration was a dream from start to finish, and feast of wedding inspiration!

2015 has been the year of little girls, so I was thrilled to photograph handsome Seamus last week with his very proud parents. I’ve said it before, and I will say it again… I love newborns sessions! They are so different than anything else I photograph, it’s always so rewarding when I get the photos I’ve envisioned in my head (even if it takes a few hours to get the little ones to sleep).
Get ready for lots of cuteness (and even some nursery inspiration), meet baby Seamus!
An engagement shoot in 30 minutes? No problem! Especially when you have a beautiful afternoon in Laguna Beach, and two people in love!
Taylor and Tever rocked their mini engagement shoot. The camera loves these two, and you’ll quickly see why… they’re affectionate, fun, and even up for getting a little wet (sorry Trevor)! I cannot wait to see them tie the knot in November, and of course get them back in front of my camera for more goodness! :)
I have never experienced a wedding with more laughter than Anne and Ryan’s! Their guests were in stitches during the ceremony, as their officiant recounted Ryan’s proposal to Anne while being detained by airport security on an international trip. This perfectly sums up them as a couple, because they are always smiling and laughing at each other, even while in airport jail!
Their wedding last month at the stunning Mt. Woodson Castle was beyond dreamy, with pink bridesmaid dresses and blooms by Bespoke. This was such a unique location full of so much charm and character, making it the perfect location for Anne and Ryan to tie the knot! I can’t get enough of their photos, and I’m thrilled to share a fe of my favorite moments with you today.
