We had so much fun at Gloria and John’s wedding at Surf and Sand Resort in Laguna Beach! Initially I was little worried about the beach crowds and traffic since it was Memorial weekend, so we decided to bring the whole family down, and stay at the resort for the long weekend!  When it came […]

About their wedding vision, “Mike and I are both very laid back, nature-loving individuals. Some of our fondest memories together are made either at the beach or outdoor flea/farmers markets.

One of my favorite things about May and Scott’s wedding is that they chose to do a “non first look” in order take advantage of portrait time before the ceremony, but also follow the tradition they valued of husband seeing wife walk down the aisle for the first time in her dress! In order to accomplish […]

Saddleback Rancho Capistrano has got to be one of my favorite venues! The spanish architecture, the iron gates, the wildflowers and fields, all of it is just a photographers dream.

Christine and Don’s wedding was held at a southern Orange County garden venue boasting botanic whimsy in the middle of downtown San Juan Capistrano.

The couple wanted a natural, soft, whimsical background to exchange their vows, and thus chose Serra Plaza in the historic downtown San Juan Capistrano. Sierra Plaza was the perfect location, with a weathered water fountain tucked neatly under the chandeliers and market lights of their courtyard, surrounded by beautiful foliage, and with chiffon draping exuding a modern […]

This session was so fun for me, because it was a dear friend of mine, Kristina, her husband Jeff, and their sweet dog, Holly. Kristina is also a photographer in the industry, which makes her asking me to capture her family such a high compliment! Of course, I was beyond delighted to do so for her!

  From the Bride… As soon as we toured Rancho Las Lomas, we both pretty much knew this venue was the one. The greenery, trees and wildlife played into our love of the outdoors. It really fit the bill for what we were imagining. We were drawn to the natural, bright elements; without it feeling […]

Termeh + Kenny, Rancho Las Lomas

From the Bride… Our inspiration for the wedding came from a combination of elements. I began to feel overwhelmed with the printed bridal magazines and found myself constantly on Style Me Pretty’s Vault. We wanted it to be so classic that when we are showing our grandchildren pictures from our wedding, it would be timeless. I […]
