Marjorie & Brandon were my first couple to change their wedding plans due to Covid-19. Their wedding was scheduled to be on March 29th, 2020, at the beautiful venue Rancho Las Lomas. About a week prior to the wedding, they decided that they needed to postpone. However, they still wanted to get married on their […]

I’ll start this blog off by saying this shoot took place on March 13th, just days before the country shut down from COVID-19. It was the last shoot I had before months of not being able to photograph my clients and connect with them. It was my last hoorah of sorts before my whole business […]

You probably already know who Stephanie & Eddie are because 1) they are ALL over my insta and 2) Stephanie is ALWAYS hyping me up and commenting the most supportive comments on all my posts! Planning the shoot with them was almost as much fun as the shoot itself. We were both so pumped up […]

When I had my first phone consultation with Scott, I knew right away that he was SO excited to plan and propose to his girlfriend. What made it even more special was he chose a location that was right down the street from my house in Dana Point that I’ve been going to for my […]

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 […]
