How to Assemble Backdrop:
I had a great time shooting and helping Michelle at Coco Gallery for Vanessa & Monte’s wedding day. Their wedding ceremony and reception was held at the Hummingbird Nest Ranch in Simi Valley, CA. If you are looking for a wedding venue this place is definitely an amazing place for a wedding. The moment you start up the driveway and watch the beautiful landscaping pass by you know it’s going to be gorgeous. I loved Vanessa’s Vera Wang wedding gown and sparkling Valentino shoes! Monte was also looking pretty sharp in his custom tailored suit. Such a beautiful day and a sweet couple. See more images from Coco Gallery here.

Mentryville was the perfect location for Amanda & Dominic which makes sense because they actually chose it. I am a sucker for old buildings and could have spent the whole day just exploring the place. These two were seriously so fun photograph and I had such a great time with them! I loved Amanda’s outfit and Dominic’s green shoes added a fun little spark. Congrats you two!
Extremely excited to be shooting my first destination wedding in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic this November. I can’t wait to get my toes in that sand and capture some amazing images for Sara & Robert! They will be holding their intimate wedding ceremony at the gorgeous Jellyfish Restaurant and we’re planning to do a day after session as well so we can maybe get in the water and try some fun things in their wedding attire. It’s going to be gorgeous!

This lovely family session in downtown Lancaster on the Boulevard may have been early in the morning but you would never be able to tell with their smiling faces. There were one or two giggle fits but that only made it more fun to take pictures of. A truly beautiful family inside and out. They even invited me to breakfast afterwards! Mom has never had this type of family pictures done so it was the perfect gift for her from her daughter!
I enjoyed spending time getting to know Sara & Robert for their engagement session last week at the TCL Chinese Theatre in Hollywood, CA. The inside of the theatre was pretty amazing. It’s huge and also very dark inside which was challenging but fun at the same time! We also decided to get some natural light photos outside on the staircase afterwards and I’m in love with those photographs too. Oh and the staircase was musical. Who thought that was a good idea? Every step played a note when you stepped on it which got pretty annoying with loads of people walking by but Sara & Robert were good sports and we managed to bear the annoyance.
In the short time I’ve spent with Sara & Robert I can tell that they love to travel and just have a fun time being together. A beautiful, fun & sweet couple! They are planning their destination wedding for November of this year in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic and I can’t wait to capture their wedding day! It’s going to be amazing!
