A whimsical venue that makes you feel like you’re tucked away in some remote location, an epic dance party with cats, horses, and bucks (you’ll see what I mean), and one incredible duo coming together as husband and wife. This long awaited wedding came and went and here’s what we have to show for it…Read More

These two soon-to-be newlyweds + explorers had a dream to turn a van into a homey spot where they can rest their heads and travel the world. So, that's what they did. Why not, right? See more of this fun adventure engagement session caravanning around Mt. Laguna, CA.Read More
The day started slow and mellow with low-sitting clouds hovering over Santa Barbara.
The hotel was quietly humming with guests checking in. When I got to the room where Tami and the girls were getting ready, make up was well underway and hairspray lingered in the air. Tami had just started getting ready, but she already had a stunning bride glow about her. The day progressed so easily and before we knew it Tami was getting into her gown and heading to see John for the first look.Read More
What an incredible afternoon having this opportunity to get to know these two better before the big day, take in these views, and get a crash course in nutrition and exercise. Also, isn't Sarah such a STUNNER? The whole session I kept trying to figure out who her famous celebrity doppelgänger is. I think I may have an idea on who it is - any guesses!?Read More
Tucked away just east of the Sierra Nevada Mountains is this adorable little off-the-grid farm fully equipped with goats, chickens, horses, dogs, a couple of calves, a cat named Tango, and two lovebirds named Jess and Lundy (corny I know, but HAD TO).Read More
You know when you meet someone whether in person, email, social media, phone call, and you can tell pretty quickly if you will get a long with them well? Tami was like that for me. Maybe she's like that for a lot of people, I can definitely see that because she's so stinking sweet and likable. How can you not just want to pursue a conversation with her?Read More
When I talked to Brittany about what she was thinking for the engagement session she explained that they were the kind of couple who likes to have fun and do things. They love doing brunch, riding bikes, going places, exploring their neighborhood...and that's pretty much what we did.Read More
The birds were making their presence known and it was the perfect temperature. The girls were poppin' champagne and the guys were getting settled into their cabin with food and bevs. Honestly, I think the best way to describe this day is that it was bursting at the seams with love. Beautiful, genuine, emotional love.Read More
Did I just witness a fairytale wedding?
Let me paint you this picture...It’s a warm, sunny Friday afternoon. I arrive at my destination, Quail Haven Farm. As I drive up this long windy driveway, I notice trees and flowers and turn to corner to see this wonderful barn with the friendliest horses popping their heads out to greet...
Ever been to a wedding where the whole essence of the day truly fit the personality of the bride and groom? Nick and Andrea hit this one out of the park.
Down to the very last detail this day was perfection
It was the perfect temperature all day long as the clouds came and went. The vows were funny and sweet. The moods were high all around. The dancing was ridiculous and incredible. I’m strongly considering requesting there be a mosh-pit at all future weddings. The day was perfect.Read More
When you're not used to being in front of a camera other than an iPhone or maybe even at all, a photography session may seem pretty intimidating. I wouldn't expect you to know what you're doing or feel comfortable "modeling," because chances are you don't do that for a living. When you're comfortable in your surroundings that takes at least one scary factor out of this equation. When you're comfortable, you're more you.Read More
