Live in the moments you’ll never forget. As a wedding photographer, I highly recommend considering a fine art boudoir photography session before your wedding date. As featured on Style Me Pretty, my boudoir sessions have been shown as one of our groom’s favorite wedding gifts! Embracing the classic elegance of the modern bride, boudoir portraits […]

From Kaitilin, the Bride, “My fiancé and I are simple people, we love real moments in real places. So when planning our engagement session, we knew we wanted it to represent us as a couple! We thought the natural setting of this California field would perfectly match our earthy yet sophisticated wedding aesthetic. At the […]

How Lisa and Paul met told by the Bride, “Shamelessly, I love this story.  Paul and I met at a friend’s birthday party in Newport (We weren’t set up, because I had a boyfriend at the time).  It’s funny because it was supposed to be a “girls night out” type of birthday party….so Paul shows […]

For Cassie’s boudoir, we knew we wanted natural elements that kept with her bedroom vibe. So we brought her sheets from home, and had Julep Bloom Design style some ivy on the wall, and some florals for her bedside. We brought champagne and a charcuterie for nibbling in between. The girls at Styled By TC […]

From Rebecca, the Bride, “I was never the girl that had a scrapbook or Pinterest album of her wedding. When we got engaged, we both knew we wanted something outdoors. Nothing too ballroom stuffy. The first place we went to was Calamigos Ranch and we were sold immediately. We never even looked at another venue. […]

Tricia and Eric were married at the cutest little community church in Corona Del Mar, where Tricia grew up going to church. They later celebrated with friends and family at their reception at Shady Canyon Golf Club! From the first time I talked with Tricia, she knew exactly what she wanted for her wedding. She […]

Nicole and Austin’s wedding was elegant and classic in every way. From her chosen navy and gold tones, to the the traditional stationary, every part was absolutely beautiful. The wedding party got ready at Trump Golf Los Angeles before heading over to Wayfarers Chapel for the ceremony. Wayfarers is a stunning little chapel nestled on […]

From the Bride, “Like most girls, I’ve been planning my wedding since I was about 10. I went through stages where I wanted to be a wedding planner, a wedding cake baker and a wedding dress designer. My style has changed a little over the years, but I always knew I wanted a white wedding, […]

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. When we got engaged, and being “California Kids”, we immediately knew that we wanted either wanted to get married on the beach or in a […]

So excited to share a little peek into Chris and Katelyn’s wedding at Miramonte Resort in Palm Springs. If you’ve never been, you should definitely go book a night or two now! Cutest little resort perfect for a small weekend romantic getaway. Before our coverage started, my team got brunch in their Grove Artisan restaurant […]

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. Kristen and John’s day was no exception. The sun was shining in full force making this day warm, golden, and oh so magical. Wedding Artist […]

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. This outdoor venue holds a large open space with enclosed walls covered in green luscious vines for guests to enjoy the night under the stars. It’s the prefect place for an […]

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 […]
