Michelle and Steven's Santa Barbara Courthouse Elopement

Michelle and Steven seriously knew how to roll with the punches. They went through a few different options for their wedding day, and then good ol' coronavirus came and really messed up everything. But as I always say (I really do by the way, I say this at every wedding) "The most important thing about a wedding is that at the end of the day, you're married." Everything other than that is really just fluff. Good fluff, magical dream fluff even, but it's not why we have a wedding (at least I hope..

Lindsey and Jarred's Rustic Los Angeles Engagement Session

Well it's August so the year is basically over right? Honestly that might be a blessing at this point considering how absolutely terrible 2020 has been so far. Around this time of year I normally go to the Ventura County Fair with my Mom and enter my photography, and it was cancelled this year which broke my heart honestly. I'm trying not to get my hopes up as we get into the Fall season and trying to make peace with what may continue to be closed. I've definitely been focusing on some personal ..

Amelia and Matt's Bel Air Bay Club Wedding in Malibu, California

Who else feels like time just has no meaning anymore? Amelia and Matt’s wedding at the Bel Air Bay Club in Malibu California happened just five months ago. Which if you’re calculating, was right before the United States was heavily impacted by the novel coronavirus and subsequently started shutting down. It’s a weird feeling to think about this wedding, just wandering the venue with groups of family and friends celebrating the day and night away, which is now non-existent here in Los Angeles. (O..

Travel Blog: Paso Robles, California

I'm writing this now because it's been exactly one month since we went to Paso Robles for my husband's birthday in early March. And I cannot believe it's been only a month. It was just a few days after we got back that things started closing, including the amazing Sensorio Field of Lights exhibit that was the highlight of our trip. I'm grateful we got to do this when we did, and I want to share some images of the lovely area we visited and especially the Field of Lights. I really hope that they ..

Sharyl and Chris- Venice Canals Engagement Session

It feels like a lifetime ago that I did this engagement session in Venice Beach. It was the early part of March, before Safer at Home, before stores and restaurants closed down, before things got as bad as they are now. It's just such a weird feeling to be posting these and looking at them now. But we soldier on right? I find that blogging and working on images, even just doing home photography now while we are staying inside is helpful to being able to feel "normal". And love and joy and happin..

Larissa and Steven's Maternity Session at The Walnut Grove

It's always exciting to me to be able to photograph old friend's that I haven't seen for a bit. Especially when they're HAVING A BABY. It's been ten years since I graduated high school (Santa Susana High School Class of 2010). And in those ten years many of my friends have gotten married, moved away, had babies, are having babies, etc. So to be in a profession where I am able to see these lovely people again and be there to witness these special moments, is something I am so grateful for. L..

Laura and Rob's Madera Kitchen Los Angeles Wedding

Oh gosh, is this my first blog post of the year? Apparently so. Well, at least it's a really really good one! Laura and Rob got married on 2-22-2020 (Uh yeah, best wedding date ever I think) at the Madera Kitchen in Los Angeles. They began their day getting ready at the Line Hotel in Koreatown, which is one of the coolest LA hotels in my opinion. I think you'll see why here from the view from their room. Their day was just chalk full of attention to detail in the best way, all their font matched..

Heather and Patrick's El Matador Beach Anniversary Session

Hey all! I'm 39 weeks pregnant, no signs of baby yet. On the one hand: I'm pretty dang uncomfortable and annoyed. On the other hand: I have some free time to blog before he comes! This post has been in the works for awhile, and then my energy and focus took a massive dive the last trimester of my pregnancy and it got put on the back burner. But now I'm here!Heather and Patrick were my wedding clients in 2017. They were the sweetest, had such a beautiful wedding, and have kept in touch since then..

18 Weddings in 2018

As the year closes I'm reflecting on everything that's happened in 2018, especially in regards to my business. And two thoughts keep coming to mind:1. I never in a million years expected to be on this path as of a few years ago.2. This path is hardI took my first photography class at 17. I loved it and never once considered it to be a career. I'm turning 27 next year (yikes) and I cannot believe how far I've come. From a Canon Rebel T3i to here, building a business and brand totally from scratch..

The Great Gatsby/ Art Deco Styled Shoot

This amazing styled wedding/ bridal shoot took place over a year ago in November 2017 at the gorgeous MacArthur in Los Angeles. After patiently waiting- Bridal Musings picked up this shoot and published it on their blog recently! So now I can openly and proudly share these photos that I've been sitting on and dying to share with the world for so long! An incredible team of vendors came together to make this possible, mostly by the very talented Sabrina of Weddings By Sabrina who was the mastermi..

Raw vs. Edited Images

I am SUPER excited about this blog post, because it's something I've never done before! I get a lot of questions from clients about "raw/unedited" versus "edited" images. They often ask if I edit my images, what all that involves, and if they can have the raw/unedited images as well as the edited ones. And my answer to that last question is always "no". For the reason that photographers rarely if ever give out the raw/unedited images simply because they aren't a finished product. The truth is, o..

Mommy and Me Session in Joshua Tree National Park

So fun fact: I had never been to Joshua Tree before this session. Joshua Tree is kind of a photographer's "bucket list" item, and so being able to go and do this shoot with my friend Lauren and her sweet son was an awesome experience! Also Lauren is a babe herself so we got to do some shots of her being a desert goddess while her cute little boy ran around and played on so many rocks. If nothing else, Joshua Tree is pretty amazing for rocks and rock formations. I don't like to do a ton of write ..

Mackenzie and Jack's Oxnard Tower Club Wedding

Excited to have this wedding up on the blog! Although my cat was not making it easy with her insistence on laying on my keyboard. She's a pretty terrible co-worker to be honest. Mackenzie and Jack had their wedding at The Oxnard Tower Club- which is such a cool venue. The Tower Club sits 22 floors up in the Morgan Stanley Building in Oxnard. It's views include the 101 Freeway, and the Pacific Ocean. Talk about gorgeous- especially at sunset! The staff is so sweet and the food is pretty amaz..

Katie and Andrew's Golden Hour Engagement Session

Happy Friday! We're finally getting some rain here in Southern California. Rain always makes me want to leave the house and go on crazy far away adventures. But since my car only has one working light, and my windshield wipers desperately need to be changed, and my tire pressure light just came on yesterday,  here I am at the Starbucks down the street. And I realized- I've NEVER done work at Starbucks before. I usually stay at home to work, and I never really understood why so many peop..

Sam and David's Salt Lake City Temple Wedding

So remember when I said I was going to blog every Friday all year? Me too. But hey, quality over quantity right? And it turns out quality involves going through galleries, choosing photos, formatting them for web, making diptychs of verticals, exporting, uploading, and creating a blog post. But you know what? It's worth it when it happens. Especially because I get to relive some awesome weddings all over again! And today's couple may look familiar. I did a beach session with these two cuties bef..
