Ashley and Greg are back on the blog! The last time I spent with these two was in January before Greg was scheduled to leave on a 3 month tour for the navy. What was scheduled to be 3 months turned into a whopping 6 months but not before he surprised Ashley by coming home […]

Kristel & Bryan were all smiles for their engagement session at Echo Park and the Walt Disney Concert Hall! These two are just wonderful people inside and out and were very easy and natural to photograph. (And their little pup, King Arfur is the cutest little thing too! Wait till you seen him!) Echo Park […]

Matt & Kristen’s engagement session at the Santa Monica Beach was beautiful! More beachside engagement sessions please! These two are one of the sweetest couples ever (how do I always get the sweetest couples?!) and are so excited to get married this fall. I loved hearing about their wedding plans and know their small, intimate wedding […]

Amanda & Adam’s engagement session at El Matador Beach was beautiful in every way. The couple. The sunset. The beach. I could photograph every couple here and still not get tired of this beautiful location! Seriously, I am so thankful there isn’t a shortage of nice locations here in Southern California for engagement sessions. Within […]

Jessica and Mike are one of the sweetest couples you’ll ever meet. They are just kind and happy people. And they are so in love. I first met them last year over a cup of coffee to talk about wedding details and just adored them right away. We talked and laughed over their love story […]

Ashley and Greg are just madly in love. And it shows by the way they both glow when around each other. When Ashley told me about doing her engagement session at the Mission of San Juan Capistrano in Orange County I was thrilled. And once I arrived, I could see why she choose this location. […]

This sunset session over at Paramount Ranch was just dreamy in every way. When Jane called and asked me to photograph her and her husband for their holiday cards I was so excited. Jane is a wedding planner over at Jane Alexandra Events and in the past we’ve worked a beautiful wedding together. The first time I […]

These two just belong together and are head over heels for one another. And they did a great job during their engagement session […]

I love capturing the joy that radiates from people as they spend time with the one who makes them sparkle. I’m even more thrilled when they ask me to photograph them again! I had the privilege of photographing Jason and Kim earlier this year for their anniversary and when they were recently visiting from out […]

Jason and Kim said their I do’s one year ago and so for their session, we went back to the place where it all happened. We started out at the Santa Barbara courthouse and there is definitely not a shortness of beauty in that picturesque little town. We’ve driven by it quite a few times […]
