Ashli & Jude

I loved photographing this wedding at the Cannon’s Restaurant in Dana Point with Ashli and Jude! They were such a fun loving pair and Jude is an absolute animal on the dance floor! It lit my heart up to see how happy they were on their big day to finally tie the knot before all of their


Today my baby turned 3 And my heart broke and exploded all at the same time And I kissed his baby face and told him I loved him more times than the sun has risen or set in his lifetime And I gave him a cake with three candles And I cuddled his cosy cheeks And stroked his curly ringlets And smelled

Ricey & Joey Downtown L.A. Engagements

Kate & Ty Get Engaged

This is my adorable cousin and her fiancee. They met while living in France so we thought we’d bring a little France to Southern California (aka Soka University). It was such a blast spending time with these two. They don’t hold back anything and have so much fun together. You can see

Bridgette & Chris

Mykonos, Greece

Of all the places we visited, Santorini and Mykonos were the places I deemed as “absolutely unforgettable.” It is without question that we will go back here some day. If this isn’t on your bucket list, put it on there now. Truly a place I only thought existed in dreams. Take a

Crete, Ephesus & Kusadasi

Our next stop on our European trip was to Crete, Greece. It was a smaller town but equally as beautiful as the others. The water here was unlike anything I had ever seen before! We ate at a little cafe right on the water and swam in the salty ocean. It was beautiful. Next we stopped in Ephesus,

Arianne & Scott Bridal Session

I get asked a lot of times what a “bridal session” is. Bridal sessions are perfect for the bride and groom who would like to have a lot of portraits taken of them in their formal attire outside of the wedding day. This provides a wonderful opportunity for them to get both formal and

Matt & Julie Get Hitched

I was so happy for these two to tie the knot. This one was a long time coming and all their friends and family were so happy to celebrate the two of them finding joy and happiness together. Matt having been widowed 12 years I’m sure can attest that Julie was worth the wait! All party details

Malta & Athens

Our next stop on our tour was Malta which just so happened to be the most pleasant surprise of our trip! Not knowing what to expect was likely the greatest thing about it because we had nothing to lose and everything to gain! I fell in love with the neutral colors by the seaside and how the city

The Amalfi Coast

This was inevitably one of my favorite stops of our trip to Europe. I only wished we would have had more time to really explore on our own and get deep into the culture of all the beautiful towns. We made stops in Sorrento, Amalfi, Positano and Ravello and the urge to go back is only intensifying

Rome, Italy

Spent some time in Europe a couple months back and am finally pouring over all the images. I desperately want to go back! This was our first stop in Rome, Italy where I lost my heart and left it there forever. Some of the best memories I’ve ever made..and I think we were on a solid diet of
