Tropical San Diego Botanic Garden Wedding

This rainy San Diego day felt like the perfect day to reminisce over Masey and Jon's Wedding at the San Diego Botanic Garden with it's moody tropical vibes. We met Masey and Jon a year ago when they modeled for a styled shoot we worked on with Brick & Lace  and Madmade Designs . They are seriously the sweetest boho babe + surfer pair we ever met. A few months later they were engaged and hired ...

2016 Recap

I honestly got a little emotional curating this post. As an artist working for others I'm constantly flooded with fears. Fear that I'm not pushing myself enough creatively, fear that I might miss something,and fear that my work just doesn't measure up to the standards I've set. But I had a thought today. If our work can attract so many beautiful souls and if it is enough to earn their trust in ord ...

First Look Among the Redwoods

Romantic first looks when getting married in the Redwoods are a must. Also, when the world blesses you with a little bit of weather, find a way to roll with it and allow nature to become a memorable and mystical aspect to your big day. Tucked away just outside the unmistakable Muir Woods, we gathered David and Danielle to spend a few moments in peace before their ceremony among the Redwood trees a ...

Family photojournalism | Documentary family photography

Family photojournalism is something I've fallen in love with recently. I've never been a fan of mini-sessions. It takes time to capture a child's personality. It takes time to capture those fleeting interactions between a mother and her son. It takes time to build trust with another person as their photographer. Recently I've begun offering "day in the life" sessions as a way to capture those deli ...

Temecula Golden Hour Elopement

We are still glowing from the Temecula elopement we shot with Trista, Anthony, and Jude. They planned an intimate ceremony at a small local winery in old town Temecula, followed by a walk as a family in one of their favorite locations, the Santa Rosa Plateau. Not only is their family beautiful, but they are kind, loving, and contagiously joyful! So often weddings can become big ordeals (not that t ...

Mexico Engagement // La Fonda & K-58

We are absolutely smitten with this Mexico engagement session. 60 minutes from the US/Mexico border is a magical place where you can eat like a king, camp overlooking the ocean and catch some awesome surf. For Amy & Zak Mexico is a place where they have spent many weekends adventuring together and falling in love. It's a place of peace and solitude. We are so lucky that they wanted to share th ...

Mt. Laguna Session // San Diego Engagement Photographers

Just outside San Diego we find ourselves drawn to the Sunrise Highway that loops through Mt. Laguna. Where you can catch a glimpse of snow in the winter and and late night golden hour in the summer. It's surrounded by trees and meadows unlike anywhere else in San Diego. We set out with our friends Amanda & Scott to explore and refuel after a summer of weddings! We spent time scouting the area ...

Botanical Hudson Loft Wedding

This botanical Hudson Loft wedding was the perfect example of bringing the outdoors in. Starting with the blank, industrial slate of the Hudson Loft, the space was completely reinvented using ferns and other foliage. The pillars were literally transformed into trees by the talented work of Lavenders Flowers.  Even with all the incredible design details to obsess over our absolute favorite part of ...

Santa Barbara Coastline Elopement

A Santa Barbara coastline elopement. Where better for two poets to spend their wedding day? When describing to us their perfect day,  Emileigh and Mike used the words golden light, moody, and magical and we just happened upon the perfect beach to fit all of those qualifications.  They gave us their complete trust, even sacrificing some time at dinner with their friends and family. All we can say i ...
