The Coto Valley Country Club in Coto de Caza is a dream venue!  I have been able to photograph wedding in the beautiful Coto de Caza before, but this venue is relatively new and I was blown away with it’s beauty and charm, it is definitely one of my favorites.  The style makes my heart […]

Coto Valley Country Club Wedding: Emily and Michael

This session was epic!  The deserts outside of Las Vegas are gorgeous!  El Dorado Canyon Mine is so fun, so many options, a photographers dream!  I have shot here twice now and I could shoot there a hundred more times and never get bored!  Who wants do their engagement session out there?  I am more […]

Las Vegas Engagement Session: El Dorado Canyon Mine

I don’t think that I would be the only one to say that this winter, in California, has been one for the books.  Cold and rainy has been the norm.  To us Californians, 50 degrees is COLD, we are total wusses, but it’s fine.  The Shaw Family came to California from Northern Idaho for a […]

Manhattan Beach Family Session: Shaw Family Vacation

I have been shooting weddings for over 15 years now.  I have photographed literally hundreds of engagement sessions.  I have photographed simple, casual sessions and glamorous, entailed ones and everything in between.  In this last year, I have noticed a trend in engagement photography that not very many couples are doing and I love it […]

New Ideas for Your Engagement Session!

Weddings are so special and wonderful when couples are just so openly enthralled by each other.  And that was Chris and Stephanie’s wedding!  From the second I met this cute couple at their engagement session, I knew I was going to love this wedding!  I’m a sucker for outdoor, romantic weddings.  Aren’t they just the […]

Chris and Stephanie: Oak Canyon Nature Center Wedding

This San Juan Capistrano engagement session!  Ahhh!  This couple!  The mission!  It was all so good!  Some couples need direction and encouragement, and I love that, I need A LOT.  But some couples tell me how hard being in front of the camera is and then we get this!  I pose, put you in the […]

Neal and Erica: San Juan Capistrano Engagement Session

Jennifer and Derek were married on the most perfect, slightly windy day in Dana Point, overlooking the ocean.  Does it get better than that?  Nope!  Truly, this day was perfection.  And it couldn’t have happened for a more adorable couple. This is the 2nd wedding that I have been able to shoot at this venue.  […]

A Laguna Cliffs Wedding!

Michael and Stephanie were high school sweethearts!  I loved hearing their love story.  As someone who did not meet their husband until their 8th (yes, as my mom says, I could have been a doctor) year of college, it is so interesting how my cute couples met and fell in love and knew they would […]

Michael and Stephanie: Pasadena Wedding

I am finishing up this cute couples album from their wedding and next Saturday I get to shoot a wedding at the Heritage Museum of Orange County in Santa Ana with the incredible Camarie McBride.  I am so excited about these things and it made me think of Carl and Brennan engagement session there last […]

Carl and Brennan: Heritage Museum Engagement Session

Matthew and Rosalind were married in beautiful Riverside, California.  Their ceremony took place at a breath-taking church there, St. Catherine’s. It was such a sweet ceremony, so much love!  I love my job that I get to be a part of it.  We then went over to the nearby Victoria Club for their reception with […]
