It’s already May! Hard to believe, right? Wedding season is officially in full swing and I couldn’t be happier. Each wedding brings a new opportunity to create something beautiful and unique for my couples, a challenge I welcome with open arms! I also happen to photograph some of the best people around, so a long day of shooting is typically filled with lots of laughter, joking and good times held by all. Andrea and David’s love story started many years ago with their first date at the Los Angeles Fair. Exactly 10 years later David proposed to Andrea at the same fair, and just a few weeks ago they officially became husband and wife! It’s especially sweet to photograph a couple with a long history together, and I’m confident these two will have many more happy years ahead of them.
Get ready for lots of oohs and aahs, because this newborn session is too cute for words! Meet sweet baby Mason, and at only 5 days old he has already won the hearts of countless adults (including mine). With a full head of hair, and perfect button nose it was love at first sight for his proud parents.
I absolutely adore photographing newborns, and feel so honored to document their first few days of life!
I had to share the last few photos from the shoot. This outdoor setup might be one of my all time favorites!
I absolutely love when I get the opportunity to work alongside talented people, especially when I look up to and admire them. So naturally I was really excited to see what Flower Allie and the wonderful ladies of Agape Planning had in store for Chrissy and Russell’s Nixon Library wedding. In addition to a truly phenomenal team of vendors; my couple, along with their families were such a joy to be around. Every detail was perfection, and you could just feel the excitement in the air.
There were literally hundreds of beautiful moments during Chrissy and Russell’s big day, but here are a few of my absolute favorites.

I adore surprises. So when Elizabeth and John arrived to their engagement shoot, and told me they wanted to include a vintage Ford Mustang I was more than happy to make that happen! What is even cooler is that the men in John’s family have restored this beauty over generations. I love when my couples incorporate something truly unique into their sessions, and this might be a new favorite for me.
I think every photographer dreams of a studio space, really wanting something to call their own. After years of meeting couples in every coffee shop from San Diego to Santa Barbara, I was itching for an alternative. I’ve patiently waited for the right opportunity, and a few months ago it arrived when I least unexpected.
I am thrilled to finally announce that I now have an dedicated meeting space in the heart of Costa Mesa – yay! The office is coming together nicely, and It’s been so fun to meet engaged couples in the studio. Like most things, I consider it to be a work in progress (and a good excuse to go shopping), but here is a little peak into the space.
