When shooting an engagement session, it is important that I capture a couple’s love. Feeling a connection with the couple that I am shooting for. It is amazing how many unique and inspiring, loving couples I can form bonds with in the short amount of time. One of my most favorite things to see on […]

Happy blog love Wednesday everyone! I am writing today to tell you all of a lovely couple I had the pleasure of working with! Not only were they creative, quirky, and oh so in love, but they were also incredibly unique (As you can tell by their fun photos)! Before I tell you all a […]

Recently, I had the opportunity to work with Hillary, a woman that embodies the term “girl boss”. Not only does she spend her days owning and operating boutique hotels in Montana, but she is also an awesome fashion blogger as well! Did I mention she is doing it all while being pregnant with her baby […]

Recently, I had the pleasure of capturing Evelyn and Ralph’s baby-moon in one of the most beautiful destinations. We had the opportunity to visit the one and only, Korakia Pensione Hotel. This was their last big milestone before they are due to have their baby, Olivia. Let me tell you all, I was very excited […]

Being a photographer in Southern California sure has it’s perks! Traveling through half of the state to capture beautiful memories for my dearest couples is an honor, to say the least! When I first met Katie-Joy and Kyle in a small hole-in-the-wall cafe in Old Town Pasadena it was a surprise. The sweetest red-headed Katie-Joy […]

What do you get with Tequila, flamingo decor, and a Palm Springs Airbnb rental? A destination bachelorette party! When Whitney reached out to me she wanted to do something special for Taylor (the bride-to-be)! She wanted to make sure that we could capture the memories of having all the girls in one place, looking amazing, […]

An Edelman Public Relations internship transplanted Jeff Mindell to Los Angeles from the East Coast. Not sure of what the future would hold or if he would end up getting a full-time job out of the internship. With his imaginative and creative wife by his side, he knew everything was going to be okay, somehow. […]

When we think of Joshua Tree, most of us imagine an erie desert filled with Cacti, Joshua Tree’s, and boulder rock formations. For Cheryl and Jimbo it is their home. Where they work, hangout with friends, and collaborate with their local community to create a city filled with music, the arts, and mom and pop […]

COME ON now! Let's be PEN-PALS.
