Halloween Bridal Inspiration Session

This macabre bridal inspiration session took elements from the Autumn season, Halloween, and the Mexican holiday Dia de los Muertos to create a seasonal off beat bridal look. Jen from Urban Marigold created this amazing fall floral bouquet, Rani from Beauty by Rani did the incredible skull makeup, and our black lace Halloween dress and flower crown are from... Amazon.com :) I'm so grateful to these incredible creative women who helped me to bring this idea to fruition.  Links below!Florals:..

Samantha and David's Ventura Beach Bridal Session

Before Sam and David were married in the Salt Lake City Temple in August, we took to the beach in Ventura for a pre-wedding bridal session! As I'm sure you're aware, there are no oceans in Utah, so having wedding photos done on the beach was important to Sam, being from Southern California. And of course I'm not one to say no to fun opportunities like this! We had planned a sunrise shoot, but I had completely forgotten about the thick fog layer that Ventura has until the afternoon. We definitely..

Amanda and Anthony's Backyard Arroyo Grande Wedding

What's better than an intimate backyard wedding on a balcony overlooking the beautiful hills and trees of Arroyo Grande, California? NOTHING. Ok, well maybe not nothing but backyard weddings are pretty high up on the best things in life list. Amanda and Anthony chose to be married at Anthony's parent's home in this beautiful town in San Luis Obispo County, California. There was lots of emotion, prayer, and so much love in this sweet ceremony.  A local Arroyo Grande bakery made honey la..

Shelby and Rob's Santa Barbara Courthouse Wedding

Shelby and Rob's Santa Barbara Courthouse Wedding was a photographer's dream! I love venues that have that perfect mix of gorgeous lush foliage, and also super unique architecture. The Courthouse definitely has both! This sweet ceremony took place in the Mural Room, named for the gorgeous colorful murals of California's history. Their ceremony was short and so sweet, followed by a lot of time to explore the Courthouse and grounds and take advantage of it's incredibly unique and very Santa Baraba..

Christina and David's Griffith Observatory Engagement Session

These two chose such a fun and unique spot to take their engagement photos! The Griffith Observatory in Griffith Park Los Angeles is such an iconic place, and the architecture and views of Downtown Los Angeles made for some super fun photographic opportunities! These two were so fun to be with and weren't afraid to show off their love in front of some crowds visiting the Observatory. I'm so excited to shoot their wedding in a few months! Enjoy these photos of Christina and David!..

Queen of Hearts Styled Wedding Shoot at Hartley Botanica

This Alice in Wonderland inspired Romantic Tea Party styled shoot took place in Somis, CA at the beautiful Hartley Botanica Gardens and Nursery. This was a coming together of many wedding professionals in Ventura County, CA. The couple is a real couple who met through a shared love of swing dancing. We wanted to incorporate both the "tea party" theme of the bride wearing a tea length dress and quaint tablescapes, as well as the Alice in Wonderland "Queen of Hearts" theme- with her tiara a..

Martin and Julie's Simi Valley Backyard Wedding Reception

This summer backyard wedding reception was a joy to photograph. Martin and Julie were married and sealed in the Los Angeles California Temple, and then came home to Simi Valley to celebrate. There's nothing quite like golden hour in Southern California- it's definitely a wedding photographer's dream. It's especially dreamy when paired with rustic DIY decor in a gorgeous backyard. My favorite detail was the cardboard cut-out of the Groom's brother, who could not attend the wedding due to serving ..
