Isabella | Orange County Quinceañera Photography

I don't do very many quinceañeras these days, but once in a while there is a perfect match and all the stars align! Such was the case with Isabella and her family and I was so delighted to be their ideal photographer for such a special occasion. I had the best time documenting this lovely fifteenth birthday celebration. Because even though 2020 ruined the huge and lavish event she had planned, nothing rains on Isabella's parade. A small and intimate backyard gathering took its place with beautiful details, great food, a stunning dress, her closest friends and family and, of course, yours truly to capture it all. Take a looksie!

Kara + Austin | Irvine Engagement Photography

Meet Kara and Austin! These two are just adorable! We were so honored they chose us to capture their love and dynamic during their engagement session. We met at a beautiful park in Orange County and immediately hit it off. We were so bummed that we were already booked on the day of their wedding but so happy that they decided to hire us for their engagement photos anyway! We all had such great chemistry and I think the images really show a fun, at ease, comfortable couple who truly adore each other. Take a peek:

Katie + Grant | Orange County Engagement Photography

Meet Katie and Grant! We had the privilege of photographing their adventurous engagement session last month and loved every minute. They are big on the outdoors and hiking and camping and the beach so that's exactly what we did for their session! It was important to them that we hit all their favorite spots and had enough time and outfit changes to truly portray who they are. So we planned ahead for all of it and it worked out beautifully. It's all about showcasing a couple's interests, lifestyle, personalities and dynamic. I think we nailed it, what do you think?

Elizabeth + Kyle | The Crossings at Carlsband Wedding Photography

I'm so thrilled to share the images from Elizabeth and Kyle's wedding earlier this year!
We had such a fun time harassing them at the engagement session (THIS ONE) and loved their engergy. We've been very lucky in that the couples that hire us don't take themselves too seriously and like to have a good time. We take full advantage of that. ;) The wedding day did not disappoint and everything from the bride's custom gown to the groom's must-have location were perfection.

Kim + Cory | La Quinta Wedding Photography

So excited to finally share images from Kim + Cory's wedding late last year! You may remember them from their engagement session (this one). Well, their big day did not disappoint and we absolutely adored being a part of it! It was a beautiful, sunny, perfect day in La Quinta, CA. Love, details and special touches were abundant. The color scheme and decor were elegant and chic. The ceremony and reception took place at the El Dorado Polo Club, home to the Coachella festival. It was an intimate-yet-grandiose event that is sure to be remembered by the couple and their guests for years to come.

Ruby + Randy | Diamond Bar Wedding Photography

Ruby and Randy were so cool. Like just straight up, naturally, organically hip and cool. They just have this vibe about them. They had a beautiful church ceremony in Diamond Bar, CA and a fabulous reception at their family's private estate. The decor and details were impeccable. A vintage boudoir theme, personalized pastries, a super cool cocktail area, photo booth and, my personal favorite, the cigar lounge! I loved the mariachi band dressed in white, I'm a sucker for mariachi! Another favorite of mine is the father-daughter dance. It's so special to see it behind the lens, especially when one (or both) become emotional. I also absolutely LOVE when couples let me pull them out at sunset for a few "golden hour" photos.... it's just the icing on the cake! Check it out!

Elizabeth + Kyle | Orange County Engagement Photography

We got the chance to spend some time with one of our wedding couples for 2018. We will be photographing their wedding in Carlsbad in February and this was the warm-up. ;)

We got together for their Orange County engagement session and had a ball! These two are hilarious! Two peas in a pod. Kyle is sliiiiightly more reserved and usually allows Elizabeth to run with the spotlight. I don't think she minds one bit. Kyle is her biggest fan and she gobbles it up. I loved everything about their chemistry! They work together, live together and are completely obsessed with one another. This is something not very many people can understand, after all, who would want to work with their spouse, right? Well, as a husband and wife team, we totally get it. We're are right there with you, guys!

Kim + Cory | La Quinta Engagment Photography

He was the bar patron, she was the bartender. He had his eye on her, but she was hard to get. It would be on her time, on her terms. One day she simply went up to him and said: "Ok, I'll let you take me to a ball game." And the rest, my friends, is history.
