Love Stories

There’s nothing quite like a Laguna Beach sunset, especially when paired with a playful couple like Abi & Kory. I always get so excited when my couples trust me 100% and just go with the flow. Like when I say things like, “Y’all are gonna jump in the water at the end of this session […]

Proposals are so fun because they can happen in SO many different ways. I’ve had couples propose to each other during a photo session with me and I’ve had people hire me to hide in bushes and capture the moment as it unfolds. For this proposal, it was more like the second one. Except with […]

I’m not exaggerating when I say that Ivy is just the sweetest soul I’ve ever met. She found me through her venue’s instagram (Five Crowns-Corona Del Mar) and it turns out we have a mutual friend! Heyyyy De La Planning! We instantly bonded over our love for dogs and were texting each other photos of […]

My first wedding of 2020 took place in my hometown in Dana Point, California. As much as I love destination and adventurous weddings, I equally love weddings that are less than 5 minutes from my house. I woke up, had coffee with my family, went on a hike that overlooked the harbor (where they were […]

I started a new tradition that every year, my partner & I get in front of the lens to do a photo shoot together. Being a photographer, it’s important to understand how my couples feel and gives me a unique perspective on shooting. So this year, we were in Washington for the holidays and did […]

Our local mountains did not get a lot of snow this winter, so imagine my happiness when I looked at the forecast and saw SNOW on the only day of the week that just so happened to be when I was going to be there for an engagement session! Maria & Steven live in Colorado […]

The cool thing about photographing and seeing so many weddings is that no two weddings are alike. Every single one is unique in their own way, and there is no right or wrong way to get married. For Amy & Lucas, they decided to say their vows and have a private ceremony in Floria where […]

There’s a reason us photographers choose your session time about an hour before sunset. We call this “golden hour” and 90% of the time we are blessed with the most beautiful, flattering light! This session was the perfect example of how golden the light can get. Natasha & Patrick decided to bring their fur baby, […]

If I could describe the perfect intimate wedding scenario, it would be Angelica & Antonio’s wedding day. These two, plus their loved ones, drove from Arizona (where they live) all the way to Los Angeles, California to get married in the sunshine on the beach. Santa Monica has been a vacation spot for their family, […]

Seven4One is a boutique hotel nestled in the heart of Laguna Beach. After shooting here, I can truly say it is the perfect place for intimate weddings and elopements. Grazhel & Justin’s wedding was my last wedding of 2019, and I am so glad I ended my 2019 wedding season with them! There were endless […]
