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..

27 Favorite Photographs in 2017

This was one of my first sessions in 2017! Natalie and Davey were so cozy and snuggly and it gave me all the warm feelings. Not like I needed warm feelings when our winters in California are about 80 degrees. But still! I really tried to get away from stiff posing last year, and lean more towards gentle guiding and then letting the couple just do their thing!I mean, how could I not choose this? Shawna and Derek are my best and closest friends, and I was so lucky to be able to use them as models ..

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..

Cameron and Daniel's Simi Valley Engagement Session

Cameron and Daniel are planning a December wedding at the gorgeous Camarillo Ranch House, and wanted an equally rustic and romantic location for their engagement session. I knew just the place! Corriganville Park on the very edge of Simi Valley is an amazing location that is always different at different times of the year! I did a bridal shoot here back in January (See Here!)  so I had an idea of how it would look, but I was SO excited to find these gorgeous red flowers all around when..

Lenae and Jarrod's Rustic Simi Valley Wedding

Growing up in Simi Valley, I took several field trips trips to the Strathearn Historical Park and Museum nestled in Ventura County. This historical park holds buildings significant to the history of Simi Valley and the surrounding areas- plus it's insanely pretty with tons of awesome photogenic nooks and crannies. This summer wedding was "jammed full" of rustic DIY elements- hand painted signs, insanely cute homemade jam favors, giant outdoor lawn games, and an incredible photobooth setup for fu..

Tessa and Brian's Corriganville Regional Park Maternity Session

I had the privilege to photograph Tessa and Brian and their little one(s) in Corriganville Regional Park in Simi Valley. We had just had some nice rains the couple of weeks before so everything was still beautiful and green. This family was so fun to work with and their little boy had such a great personality! I love being able to photograph families in love!"A plane!"..

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..

Natalie and Davey's Simi Valley Couple's Session

Natalie and Davey were such a joy to work with for this cuddly golden hour couple's session. What a joy to be able to photograph people in love. <3..

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 ..
