On Thanksgiving Eve, Katy and I took the scenic drive down to Palos Verdes for Molly and John’s engagement session at Terranea Resort. Now for those of you who don’t know, Molly is Katy’s best friend, sister, ride or die, Maid of Honor, etc., and they even have an MK tattoo for their names (not Michael Kors) to prove it! Anyway, Molly and John got engaged about two months before us (thanks for the pressure John 😉 ha), and are getting married two months before us too, so next year is going to be one big party.
Last weekend, Katie and Nathan said their I Do’s at the gorgeous Belmond El Encanto in the hills of Santa Barbara. It was a dream wedding from start to finish – from turtles at the ceremony, to the Capri inspired details, to Katie and Nathan’s contagious love and happiness…and million-watt smiles!
On the last day of September, Erin and Ryan tied the knot in the beautiful hills of Malibu at Cielo Farms. A classy event from start to finish, these two truly put their everything into each and every detail, and boy, did it show.
We had way too much fun on this shoot. Time definitely flew by! Shahla and Dylan brought some of their favorite guilty pleasures with them – champagne and McDonald’s – which made for some adorable photos at the end. It’s always my favorite when my couples bring things that define them and their personalities!
A couple of weeks ago, I had the honor of photographing Rebecca and Benson’s wedding extravaganza weekend at the Ojai Valley Inn! Starting things off with a medieval themed rehearsal dinner on Friday, these two left no detail out. Complete with archery, jesters and everyone in attendance dressed to the nines in incredible renaissance costumes, I knew it was the start of an unforgettable weekend.
Last week, Kellie and Jesse’s engagement session took us to the always beautiful Malibu Creek State Park. I’m always a fan of this location because there are so many places to shoot with various backdrops – all stunning. Not to mention, you definitely get a little workout in to get to each spot!
A little over a week ago, I had the honor of photographing Janet and Andy’s splendor of a wedding at The Villa at Hummingbird Nest Ranch. A complete fairytale from start to finish, this celebration was not only stunning and full of love, but one big PARTY!
Chris took the leap of faith over 6 years ago, buying a one way ticket from Wisconsin to Los Angeles – well, that’s at least what he meant to do, but there was a mix-up. He actually bought a one way ticket from Wisconsin to Long Beach, and then had drive to Los Angeles… but what was meant to be, was. Starting his new life in the City Of Angels, Chris and Alana…
This love story first began when Mel and Fern met during their sophomore year in 1997. Fast forward over 10 years of going their separate ways, however, and living two completely different lives, and these two finally reunited – but this time, it was for good! Now, here we are at their incredibly beautiful wedding day at Hartley Botanica!
I’m still coming down from the high after Ness and Fonz’s Sherwood Country Club wedding last weekend! It was a day filled with so much love, energy and emotion, I can safely say, this wedding was one for the books. The moment I walked through the doors on Saturday morning, I was instantly treated like part of the family (they’re one big Italian family, so you know I felt right at home)! The love in the air all day was overwhelming….
