CALEB & ASHLEY | LAGUNA BEACH PROPOSAL

CALEB & ASHLEY | LAGUNA BEACH PROPOSAL

Proposals may be the best, but trickiest, events to photograph. When Caleb first contacted me about proposing to his girlfriend Ashley on the beach in Laguna, we immediately went into scheming mode. Tide charts, sunset times, crowd management, exact proposal locations and how to remain hidden while photographing it all were subjects we covered over multiple phone calls. We even met once at the location a couple days prior in order to plan it out as best we could. 

TOMMY & KRISTEN | LAGUNA BEACH & BACKYARD WEDDING

TOMMY & KRISTEN | LAGUNA BEACH & BACKYARD WEDDING

Our final wedding of the summer was Tommy and Kristen’s. What a perfect day to close out the sunniest season to celebrate love.

We’ve seen a lot of weddings, and we’ve learned there are a few components that make a wedding great: 2 people in love ready to be together forever, a celebration with who they love most, where they love most, details unique to them, whether simple or elaborate, a bonus.

AMANDA & DANIEL | LOS ANGELES ENGAGEMENT

AMANDA & DANIEL | LOS ANGELES ENGAGEMENT

Amanda and Daniel found us through one of our spring wedding clients. From our phone conversation alone we could tell they were an awesome couple and we were stoked to meet them. We’ve been wanting to do an LA shoot for a while now and they were totally down - even with the drive from San Diego and back. Anything for great photos they said. We love them already.

We love the love Brooke and Jesse have. It’s sweet and lively and true. With the beauty and freshness of Spring in full bloom, their wedding was the perfect way to welcome the new season. A day full of love and all life’s good things was in store. The richest of new beginnings had arrived.

TOMMY & KRISTEN | LAGUNA & NEWPORT BEACH ENGAGEMENT

TOMMY & KRISTEN | LAGUNA & NEWPORT BEACH ENGAGEMENT

Our latest engagement shoot tells the story of why California is rightfully dubbed the Golden State. Its luscious landscapes, fields of flowers and killer coastal sunsets are a few reasons why many say west coast best coast. And somehow the people, like the place, are gorgeous too.

DANIEL & HELAI | CARMEL MOUNTAIN RANCH WEDDING

DANIEL & HELAI | CARMEL MOUNTAIN RANCH WEDDING

Daniel and Helai’s wedding celebration was intimate and sweet. It was held at the Carmel Mountain Ranch Country Club with about fifty of their family members and closest friends. I didn’t find this out until I arrived, but technically Daniel and Helai were already married. A few days prior, they went to a mosque and received the blessing to get married, so the day I was there to photograph was more of a wedding reception to commemorate their marriage with those they hold dear.
