Kim and Patrick | Married

Patrick noticed that every day when Kim came in to his gym, she would put her headphones on and focus on the workout at hand. Kim noticed how cute the guy behind the counter at her gym was. It took a while for the two of them to go from casual gym acquaintances to friends (and eventually hubby and wifey), but they’ll both tell you it was certainly worth the wait!

This St. Patrick’s Day beach wedding is full of vibrant colors and joyous energy that match this couple’s personality. We begin their wedding day story by showcasing the bright pink walls of the La Valencia hotel, and let the day unfold by capturing the stunning architecture of the Blessed Sacrament Church, the sunny beaches of La Jolla Shores, and finally a dreamy garden reception at the La Jolla Women’s Club.

Galentine's Day Soirée

A converted horse trailer turned mobile bar, gorgeous blooms, yummy cocktails, and candy galore - how could a styled session get any cuter?

I had the pleasure of photographing this fun Galentine’s Day themed styled shoot in collaboration with seven other amazing wedding industry vendors.

The focal point of this styled shoot was The Horseshoe Bar, a boutique bartending and traveling bar. Stylist Katie of KMStyle curated a perfectly whimsical set, complete with vintage rentals from the fabulous Tin Roof Farmhouse, lush florals by The Posh Posey, and decadent macaroons and a gourmet cake by Ellie’s Macarons. To add a little Valentine’s Day flare, she also brought in super cute heart-shaped balloons with pink, red, and gold tassels from Ready Set Confetti Sac.

Once the set was complete, the girls sipped and snacked as I did my photo thing. It was an all-around amazing evening of collaboration and creativity!

Enjoy this collection of photos from the shoot and Happy Valentine’s Day to all <3

Kim & Patrick | Engaged

Patrick proposed to Kim near a bench in La Jolla. It was the same bench they sat on and talked for hours after their first date. He planned an entire day of surprises from flying family out to celebrate to a planned engagement party the same night. When we discussed their engagement session location, La Jolla was an easy choice. They wanted to highlight the eucalyptus trees La Jolla is known for, along with the sandy shores overlooked by the eucalyptus-filled bluffs. Their pup even joined in in the fun! We’re so looking forward to flying back down to La Jolla for their St. Patrick’s Day Wedding!

Jillian & Peter | Married

Jillian and Peter were married at Miner’s Foundry in Nevada City, CA. Style notes: vintage-inspired wedding dress, neutral florals, stone reception venue, and a romantic feel. Scroll through to view their big day from start to finish. Be sure to click through to the next gallery because that wedding was also at Miner’s Foundry! I did back-to-back weddings are this gorgeous venue and it was so fun to see how two different couples styled the stone hall.

Allison & Kevin | Married

Allison and Kevin’s fairy tale wedding was held at the Miner’s Foundry in Nevada City, California. Sweet Allison was such a gorgeous bride and the two of them were so fun and easy to work with. Allison even went out of her way to buy me my own gluten-free cake so that I could have a sweet treat when all the wedding guests were served dessert. How amazing is that!?

Kevin’s aunt did all the stunning florals and you guys, you HAVE to scroll all the way through to check them out. Everything from the bouquets to the fireplace mantle arrangement are just breathtaking. This wedding couldn’t have been made possible without their team of amazing vendors including:

Oh, Canada

Jasper > Maligne Lake > Banff > Lake Louise > Lake Minnewanka > Two Jack Lake > Calgary

(and many stops in between)

We rose for two sunsets, caught one sunrise, slept in the car, sang to the radio, soaked in a hot spring, ate gluten-free maple cookies, and took in all the beauty that is the Rockies in Canada.

Photos are a mix of mine and Craig’s.

Raedawn & George | Married

A Las Vegas weekend turned “Happily Ever After”; Raedawn and George met and feel in love in one of the least likely places. Currently, they live in LA, but opted to hold their wedding in Raedawn’s hometown of Sacramento, California. These two love birds had a traditional Catholic mass at St. Mary’s Church in East Sacramento then danced the night away at their beautiful reception at the Firehouse in Old Sacramento.
