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.

So much to love about today’s engagement session! The new spring grass, the adorable red dress Andrea is sporting, and of course the incredible location. I’m swooning over the rich colors and pretty light, which made this extra fun for me the photograph. Plus Andrea and David will be tieing the knot in just a few short weeks, so it was really nice to get to spend a few hours getting to know them better.

There were so many beautiful photos from this shoot, but here a little glimpse into a few of my favorites.

  • Rachelle - What a beautiful spring shoot! Love the bright red dress! Can’t wait to see the wedding pictures. :)

Lately I’ve been reflecting a lot about what makes a good wedding, from a photography point of view. Maybe it’s a killer venue, beautiful natural light, loads of thoughtful details, or a dream team of vendors. With these elements combined the possibilities are endless, but bringing all those things together aren’t always an option. There are budgets to keep within, location restrictions, and a dozen other real life obstacles.

So what can you do to insure your wedding is a success? I believe the most incredible weddings all have something in common, trust. When it comes to choosing your vendors, be sure your picking companies whose work you not only love, but also people you trust. No matter how organized you are; you cannot do everything yourself, and you’ll need to rely on the talented people you’ve chosen.

Just remember you’ve worked hard to pick these people, so trust your gut, and have faith that they are working hard to make your day perfect!

  • Rachelle - Great advice!!

I have such a soft spot in my heart for newborn session, especially when it’s for parents I already adore! This little cuties mama played a BIG role helping to create the perfect wedding for John and I. So it was such a treat to help return the favor, and capture the first photos of sweet baby Harper.

This session was overloaded with cuteness! I had to stop several times during the shoot to pinch myself because Harper was such a dream to photograph!

  • Rachelle - Beautiful! Love the nursery design and all the sweet gold details. Congrats to the new family!!

Over the last few years I’ve had so much fun getting to know and work alongside Carrie of Pure Lavish Events. I just adore her positive energy and zest for life. So when she asked me to be her wedding photographer, I couldn’t have been more excited and honored. It’s always something special when a fellow wedding industry professional gets married, and I’m just so thrilled I get to be a small part of it!

Carrie had told me so many wonderful things about Justin, and I can honestly say he lived up to the hype. But what struck me more was how completely in love these two are. You can just see how much fun they have together and I’m confident this will translate into their life together as husband and wife.
