I first met Hannah & Jason at their engagement party/engagement session where they hosted a small cocktail party with their closest friends at a rad warehouse in Oakland. It had just the vibe they were going for and while it was a super fun shoot, we still wanted some outdoor photos as well. It was a downpour the night of their party, so we reschedule part II for a later date... [con't]

A while ago I posted about the ever so sweet Lyndsay & Matt's engagement session in San Francisco's Conservatory of Flowers. Which was AMAZING. My love for greenery and plants intensified and I could have spent all day there. Well, my dreams came true when I saw that their wedding venue would be just as lush and gardenesque as ever, at The Brownstone Gardens in Oakley, California... [con't]
A few posts back you can find the ever stunning engagements with Carmen & Leland. Definitely my first time shooting in a museum, but I certainly hope not my last. I knew their intimate wedding would be just as special... [con't]
Living just an hour outside of San Francisco provides the opportunity to visit the city fairly often, however I wish I went more often. Luckily, I have awesome clients who don't mind adventuring in the city with me. Lyndsay & Matt wanted to start their engagement shoot at the incredible Conservatory of Flowers in San Francisco. It was a chilly winter morning outside, but inside the conservatory felt like a (very welcomed) humid paradise. I could honestly hangout in there all day and be happy... [con't]
I told you their wedding was beautiful, if you didn't catch their bridals the post before, here's more proof of how stunning the day and couple was. I love when you can just feel the happiness and love radiating from people, Kelsey & Tyler perfectly embodied that. This was their day and they wanted to celebrate it with those closest to them. I'm so happy I meet the people I have the honor of meeting... [con't]
The LDS San Diego is meaningful to Kelsey & Tyler, as her family was sealed in this temple. They don't live in California anymore so it was a bit of a destination wedding, and the rain held off just enough for these two to have a beautiful wedding day. The day before, we got together for their bridal session, and boy were they both BEAMING. They are the cutest, and I'm so glad Kelsey & Tyler chose me to capture they're happy day... [con't]
Getting to know Erin & Evan during their bridal session made me excited for their wedding. They were sealed in the LDS Newport Beach Temple followed by a lovely ring ceremony and reception with a darling backyard wedding feel. Many of the details were hand crafted which turned out beautifully. For obvious reasons, I had to start their gallery with the photo of Erin's bouquet... [con't]
No better way to end the year than with a New Year's Eve wedding! Seriously, these two know how to party. Brooke & Dane are some of the most fun loving people, and it certainly showed the whole day. Check out that perfectly blush wedding skirt! I died.. plus, her reception dress fit the holiday so perfectly. The San Diego LDS temple did not disappoint. One of my favorite buildings, aesthetically. Oh, and they definitely had a sparkling cider tower to top off the night, so cool!
Honestly where do I begin with these two... Meghann has been a dear friend since I can ever remember. She is one of the most kind, genuine, and positive people I know. I couldn't have been happier when she asked me to take her wedding photos. I am always grateful for my clients and friends who trust me with such an important day.
The El Adobe Restaurant in San Juan Capistrano set the perfect mood for their "I do's". Nothing was sweeter than watching Meghann's dad give her away at the alter, probably one of my favorite photos to date. Having recently met the groom, Juan, I instantly knew he was perfect for Meghann. They met in Columbia and basically have a perfect love story. Juan is such a kind hearted soul and I can tell the love that they have for each other is so deep and real.
The rest of the night was an absolute party, these two are phenomenal dancers and it definitely made for a good time. Tacos, churros, ice cream, my stomach thanked me. I had such a wonderful day with this beautiful couple who are also expecting in May! I can't wait to meet their cute little girl. Happiest of wishes to one of my favorite couples.
I shot Megan & James engagement photos on the beach so I was really looking forward to their wedding day! Southern California in December is just a dream. We were worried about some rain but it ended up being perfect. The bride & groom's family all came from out of town so it was a really special event.
The reception was held at the Salt Creek Grille, and my favorite part was the cute milk shake bar they had! The bride & groom love milkshakes, so I thought it was a cute way to incorporate some personal details. The groom also surprised his bride with two beautiful songs he sang on the acoustic guitar, it was seriously the sweetest thing ever. Little things like that are what make a wedding so special.
