Jill + Drake love the outdoors, so for their engagement session we wanted to be sure to capture some of California’s epic beauty. We started at Malibu Creek State Park for some time under the rolling hills of oak trees before heading up the coast to El Matador State Beach to catch the sunset and high tide.
They were up for anything, even scampering between the incoming waves to climb the rocks and structures along the coast, trying the whole time not to get completely soaked. We all left the session wet and sandy, but it definitely made for a spectacular California afternoon.
Congrats again you two, I’ll see you next year at your wedding!

When I met CJ + Jenn we started talking about their lives together and their story. It came up that the first time they met was at a Starbucks near L.A. live. and since they both loved Downtown L.A. it made perfect sense to schedule their engagement session to start at L.A. Live, take in a couple of “their spots” and then head across town to capture twilight with the L.A. skyline. They were all smiles throughout their session and it made for a very enjoyable afternoon of photography.
They also run a charity together called Happy Feats, that collects socks for kids who are in the hospital, be sure to check it out and help them grow!
Congrats again on finding each other and I am thrilled to be part of your Palm Springs celebration in April!

We met Kathy + Karl early last month for their engagement shoot (where they rocked it in Downtown L.A.), and just a couple weeks ago they said their vows at Calamigos Equestrian Center in Burbank. The day was filled with family, friends + laughter and they were both super chill to photograph. Special Thanks to Kenny for shooting with me for Kathy and Karl’s celebration.
Congrats to you both! Have an amazing future together!

Rebecca and Tyler’s wedding day at the Bel Air Bay Club in Pacific Palisades was a day packed with emotion and tradition. Rebecca used her training as a stage manager to plan the day to the last detail and Tyler maintained a constant pace of roaring laughter throughout the entire afternoon.
Congrats again to you both and your families! Thanks for having us as part of your wedding!

We had driven the winding canyon roads in the Malibu hills multiple times, including this particular one when we did Karen & Nolan’s engagement shoot. Little did we know that there was a wedding venue tucked away high in the hills: Rancho Sol Del Pacific.
Mariel & Fernando had their pool-side ceremony overlooking the Pacific Ocean, and then celebrated with their friends and family who had some exceptional dance moves.
Congratulations Mariel & Fernando! Thanks so much for having us.

A couple weeks back, Felicia and I headed down to Orange County to spend the day with Brian and Lindsay for their wedding at the Summit House in Fullerton. The drinks flowed like the celebration it was and Brian + Lindsay were both totally chill while we took pictures before and after their ceremony.
Congrats to you both! I hope the honeymoon was epic!

Penguins are apparently Dino and Alisa’s thing, and although we had already done one engagement session with them, when they found out they could get into the penguin exhibit at the Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach they immediately went about figuring out how to do another shoot. So earlier this week we headed to the aquarium bright and early(aka, before they opened) and had a personal tour. Jeff our guide) told us all about the aquatic birds and was super patient and helpful trying to get the penguins to model for me.
Thanks again guys for the super unique shoot and I’ll see you in a couple months at your wedding!

A few days back we caught up with Kathy and Karl for their downtown engagement session around Disney Concert Hall and the bunker hill area. There had been one of those freak summer rains earlier in the day, so we were treated to a few rare Los Angeles clouds and an epic sunset.
Congrats again Karl + Kathy, I’ll see you very soon for your wedding!

Ah, Jake & Noelle. We’ve gushed about them when recalling their engagement shoot in Paso Robles, and to say we were looking forward to their wedding would be an understatement. Simply by being their amazing selves, it would have been a pretty rad wedding. But they upped the ante by adding a super fun wedding party, horses (Noelle’s dream come true), and the USC Marching Band.
It’s basically too much awesomeness to describe. I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves.
Congratulations Jake & Noelle! We will miss you!

We had so much fun at Krystal & Daniel’s airport engagement shoot, and were looking forward to seeing them again at their wedding. It took place at The Mountain Mermaid, one of the most unique venues in Los Angeles with a very colorful history.
Krystal did an incredible job with the travel-themed details, she herself looked absolutely amazing, glowing with joy and laughter all day, and together with Daniel, made for a very dapper couple.
Congratulations, Krystal & Daniel!
