San Diego, California Bridal Session at Torrey Pines State Reserve

This last minute bridal session ended up being one of my favorite shoots ever and made me want to do bridals forever and ever. If you don’t know what bridals are or why you should book them, check out this blog!

Griffith Observatory Sunrise Engagement Session

Griffith Observatory Sunrise Engagement Session

This sunrise engagement session at the Griffith Observatory is one of my favorite ones yet! Josh and Kayla love the city and the view of Los Angeles here is amazing so it was the perfect location for them.

Thomas F. Riley Wilderness Park Engagement Session | Megan + Levi

Megan and Levi’s engagement session is another favorite of mine! I really enjoyed hanging out with them during the shoot - we climbed on trees, up some hills, chatted about all the weird tv shows we’ve been watching lately, and had a good laugh when Megan swallowed a bug right as I prompted her to say something sweet to Levi hahaha. One of the reasons I like shooting at Thomas F. Riley Park is that the sunsets here are always SO GOOD and this day was no exception. I love how these photos turned out so much!

Vasquez Rocks Engagement Session | Esther + Loren

Esther and Loren are one of my 2019 wedding couples and I LOVE THEM SO MUCH. Their engagement session is seriously one of my favorites ever and I smile so hard every time I go through these photos. So so stoked for their wedding in August!

French Estate Wedding | Brittany + Rey | Orange, California

I’ve typed and retyped this thing a dozen times because I literally don’t know where to start with these two!! Their engagement session was our first official meeting and those can be a little intimidating initially, but Brittany and Rey were just so sweet and fun to be around, it didn’t even feel like I was working at all. It was the BEST thing ever and I left our shoot even more excited to for their wedding day, which of courseee was just as amazing as they are.

Their day was just so full of HAPPY from start to finish and really made me love what I do even more. One of my favorite moments was during the ceremony when Rey tried to kiss Brittany after saying his vows (before they were announced husband and wife) and the officiant was like “no, not yet!” and Brittany started laughing SO HARD. She has one of those super contagious laughs/smiles so of course all the guests were laughing too and I couldn’t stop cheesing behind my camera either. Those photos are shown in the gallery below and are some of my favorites from the whole day because they make me smile so much.

Throughout the rest of the day,  I kept catching little “hey, we’re married” glances/hugs/smiles/kisses between the two newly weds and it was the cutest thing ever. I’m pretty much obsessed with them. On top of everything, Brittany made me feel so welcome and appreciated during the day (HER day) and completely trusted me in my work. That is something that means so much to me!
