Linda + David
A warm, Spring day in Ojai is hard to beat. Oranges fill the trees and brightly decorate the ground.
I loved adventuring with these two! They are sweeter than all the citrus in Ojai!
April has been pretty magical.
I turned 26.
I know + love who I am more than ever.
I just got back from the most amazing Big Sur camping adventure with my little fam. I loved being so immersed in the dramatic and beautiful landscape. Reconnecting with nature is medicine for the soul. I’ve been daydreaming about being back in the redwoods ever since. Waking up next to a creek, watching my dogs run around the forest, making friends with the locals, everything about the trip was perfect. Especially the ice cream at Fernwood and the gourmet grilled cheese from the local bakery. My crew loves to eat!
My fingers are crossed that I will get to shoot more weddings in Big Sur, Sea Ranch + Carmel.
To put the cherry on top, Genevieve + Michael’s almond orchard engagement shoot was published on Green Wedding Shoes! Happy dance, happy dance!
I’m endlessly grateful to photograph wild in love, creative, kind hearted couples.
Kendall + Andrew
Their intimate wedding was held at The Victorian in Santa Monica. A cozy space with shelves full of old and curious books. Beautiful flowers filled the rooms and created such a romantic place for Kendall and Andrew to exchange vows. Their beloved dog, Chewie, sported his best bow tie and was the happiest little pup in the world that day. Congrats and three cheers for such a wonderful couple!
Stephanie + Kevin
Palm Springs was the perfect place for their intimate, destination wedding. Friends and family flew from all over to celebrate the love between this wonderful couple. Stephanie and Kevin are such kind hearted, hilarious and fun loving people. It was a such joy to be around not only them but their family and friends. These folks know how to do it right! I can confidently say an amazing time was had by all!
I would also like to take a moment and send love, to my friend and fellow photographer, Anthony Carbajal. Stephanie and Kevin had chosen him to be their wedding photographer and right before their big day, he was diagnosed with ALS. This devastating news also meant that, in order to preserve the muscle that is left in his hands, he could no longer work as a wedding photographer. Anthony is an amazing man with an outlook on life that has inspired me since I met him. It comes as no surprise that this disease has not defeated or even weakened his spirit. He is a fighter who continues to inspire with his profound love for life and positive outlook. If you would like to support Anthony in his fight, click here.
I would also like to thank Chloe Moore for donating her time to second shoot and providing a crazy fun photo booth! We love you Anthony! This one’s for you!
Kat + Zach
The Oviatt Penthouse was the perfect venue for this Old Hollywood styled wedding. Kat and Zach planned a such glamourous and fun way to tie the knot inspired by their mutual love for film! I truly adore these lovebirds to no end!! Congratulations to one of the most amazing couples I’ve ever photographed! Cheers!
