Estate on Second Fall Wedding in Santa Ana

Shane & Taylor | Santa Ana, CA

When we packed up to leave we sort of dragged our feet because honestly, this day was just so much fun we didn’t want it to end.

Taylor & Shane have been together since high school (shout out to all of the other high school sweethearts!!) so obviously when we found that out we were THAT much more excited when they asked us to photograph their big day. Their wedding day was filled with so much buzz and excitement, everyone was just so genuinely joyful for them to tie the knot! It was so amazing watching this day come together and seeing how invested their friends and family were to making this day such a wonderful celebration, I mean, Post Malone even made an appearance ;)

Taylor & Shane, thank you for asking us to photograph such a special moment in your lives. It was an absolute joy to be there. We hope you both are settling into your new names of Mr & Mrs and that your sweet boys are still showing off their sweet dance moves & giving out killer high fives!

Venice Beach Canals Engagement Session

Jennifer & Jonathan | | Venice Beach, California

The Venice Canal Historic District of Venice Beach is one of our FAVORITE places to shoot- especially for engagement sessions. It is just a magical romantic tucked away spot out of the typical LA scene. It is just a fun little getaway to walk around! Also so close to Abbot Kinney for all of our Salt & Straw fans out there. We are actually team Handel’s in Torrance (oh & Rite Aid Thrifty!) but we won’t ever say no to ice cream around the corner :)

We had such a wonderful time getting to hang with this sweet couple!! They were absolutely adorable- Jennifer kept giggling at Jonathan the whole time.. so did we even need to tell them what to do?!- cute flirty giggles is our jam!

Jennifer & Jonathan, y’all are the cutest! We are so grateful to be able to capture this exciting season for you both!! 9 years together! That is something to celebrate! We cannot wait for your wedding coming up so soon! Enjoy these days leading up to your wedding!!

Marina Del Rey Hotel Summer Wedding

Heather & David || Marina Del Rey, California

This wedding at the Marina Del Rey Hotel was absolutely beautiful! There were so many special details throughout the day- from the matching robes & champaigne glasses to the men wearing their favorite sport’s teams’ socks to the bouquet holding precious mementos to honor loved ones who could not be there. There was so much love and hard work that went into making the day so special.

This wedding also meant a lot to us because Jenny went to school with Heather and so many of her bridesmaids. This group of friends has stayed close since high school which is pretty amazing! It was such a joy to celebrate with them!

Heather & David, your wedding was so beautiful. Thank you for the honor of being able to capture all of these precious moments and memories. You have so many people who love and care about you! We wish you both the best as hubby & wifey!

San Clemente Historic Cottage Summer Wedding

Katie & Jerald || San Clemente, California

There’s just something about outdoor weddings in the summer that make the day so magical. We have a slight obsession with twinkle lights over the dance floor as the sun starts going down and everything gets all golden and beautiful. Maybe it’s because we both had our own weddings like this? Whatever it is, we LOVE it.

This wedding was no exception- everything was beautiful. The venue at the San Clemente Historic Cottage is definitely one of our favorite spots. The ceremony is set on a cliff overlooking the ocean. The reception is on an outdoor patio with twinkle lights (a must!) within the beautiful old building- you will just have to scroll down and see for yourself.

This couple- literally the most relaxed bride and groom ever. Their main agenda for the day was to celebrate with their favorite people. And we get why- they had such a great group of family and friends who loved and cared for them. It was so fun to see smiles and laughter literally ALL day.

Katie & Jerald, you guys are the best. We cannot thank you enough for giving us the honor of documenting your wedding day!! You both are seriously some of the kindest people ever. If you couldn’t tell, we had SO much fun at your wedding with you guys. You have some very special people in your lives and it was so evident how much people loved you and were so excited for you both!

Wishing you guys nothing but the best as hubby & wifey!

Balboa Bay Resort Summer Wedding in Newport Beach, California

Nicole & Franz || Newport Beach, California

This wedding at the Balboa Bay Resort in Newport Beach was absolutely DREAMY. From the stunning details, the gorgeous florals- an arch with roses and greenery draped off of it- It was beautiful. The ceremony was intimate with close friends and family- it was set up on a lawn right next to the harbor, with rose pedals sprinkled down the aisle.

The dreamiest part of the day- this couple. They both were just so excited and thankful to be able to celebrate this day with their closest friends and family- many traveled far to get there. There were so many special details throughout the day- Nicole wrote Franz a sweet love letter to read before the ceremony. Their vows were so genuine and touching that just about everyone had tears in their eyes. Franz’ father played a song on the piano which was so special to see. Nicole’s brother also played a song on the guitar. Nicole had the sweetest photo of her father on her bouquet to honor him throughout the day. It was such a beautiful celebration.

Nicole & Franz, it was such an honor to be able to capture those moments. To document those small yet very meaningful details throughout the day. The laughter and tears you shared with your closest friends and family. We are truly honored. Thank you for allowing us to be a part of documenting such a special day! We wish you two nothing but the best in this new chapter of your lives!! We do not doubt that you guys will do amazing as Mr. & Mrs.!

Ashley & Ryan's Malibu Beach Boho Wedding

Ashley & Ryan || Malibu, Los Angeles

We arrived to the beautiful Malibu West Beach Club venue and saw the gorgeous bride, Ashley step out of the car. She gasped and cried happy tears when she saw what her friends and family surprised her with- a retro old woody car!! They rented it for a few hours to take photos with it before the ceremony!

There were so many personal sweet details throughout the day. We always collect the jewelry and small details from the bride and groom when we arrive so we can photograph them and not miss a thing. There are just so many details that go into a wedding that mean so much to the bride and groom and we LOVE capturing it all. One of our favorites from the day was this beautiful ring holder that was made of an abalone shell!

Ahh! and don't get us started on the first look. They killed us. They just love each other so much and it was so sweet to see how excited they were to see each other that day. Ashley was stunning and the way Ryan looked at her was so sweet. He truly adored her. 

Ashley & Ryan, it was an honor to capture the love you share and the commitment you made to one another in becoming husband and wife!! The day was perfect. We are so excited for this next chapter and wish you both the best as hubby & wifey!!

Intimate Backyard Wedding In Redondo Beach

Matthew & Mackenzie Wedding || Redondo Beach, Los Angeles

The ceremony was about to begin and we were looking for the groom. Don't worry, we knew he was on the property somewhere it was just a matter of where. After a few shouts, it only took one loud call from the Father of the Bride for us to see Matt's head pop over the wall of the property, eagerly awaiting us to give him the green light; the sign he'll get to see his bride in merely moments. He was practically beaming with excitement.

Meanwhile, in the bridal suite, Mackenzie is being handed the 3rd and final note that her groom had written her that day. The 3rd letter expressing how much love he has for her and how he can't wait to become her husband. And it hits her, she is about to marry this adoring & loving man in 3...2...1

There's a knock on the door, her dad is here to escort her down the aisle. 

Their ceremony was nothing less than perfect. Close friends & family stared adoringly at these two amazing people who love each other so much become man & wife.

Jenny has known Mackenzie since they were little girls playing on the same soccer teams. Which added to making this day an absolute honor to be a part of. Matt & Mackenzie, your wedding day was beyond beautiful and we hope that you find so much fulfillment and joy in being husband & wife.

Romantic Summer Wedding in Palos Verdes

Laura & Adriane's Wedding || Rolling Hills Estates, Los Angeles

Laura slowly walked up to Adriane and hugged him from behind where he couldn't see her. He turned his head toward Laura and just shook his head with tears in his eyes. She was absolutely stunning. And this was his bride, who he was going to marry in just a couple of hours. They just started laughing and crying. 

The ceremony was perfect. The sun came out and peeked through the trees right before Laura walked down the aisle. Laura came down with her dad and everyone just had huge smiles and then more tears. Happy tears.

This day was extra special for us because we've been going to church with Laura since junior high. We even all traveled to New Orleans one summer and led a kid's camp together! Her family has always been a huge part of our lives so it was just an honor to be able to photograph their wedding.

Laura & Adriane, you two are so special to us! We loved hanging out with you taking pictures throughout your wedding day. We were seriously laughing, crying and dancing behind our cameras with you two! Your wedding was absolutely perfect. You both share such a sweet love for one another which is so beautiful. We cannot wait to see this new chapter in your lives and husband and wife!! Love you guys!

South Bay In-Home Newborn Session

Newborn Session || Redondo Beach

From the tiny two week old toes to the sweetly decorated nursery, this newborn session had us "ooing" and "awwing" the whole time. I mean, who else forgets how itty bitty a two week old is?! They are so TINY and the cutest little humans ever. Add a pup and a sweet sister and it makes it that much more adorable. 

Anne & Pete, your family is beautiful and so sweet. Thank you SO much for letting us be a part of this incredible time in your lives! You both were rock stars for handling a toddler, a 2 week old, and getting yourselves ready for the shoot! We wish you both the best in this new chapter of being a sweet family of 4!

South Bay 2018 Senior Session

Cami || South Bay Senior Session

This senior session was so special. Something that we don't normally do is photograph a senior session in someone's home or backyard. But for Cami this was different because this was the home that she had grown up in. Cami's family had just sold this house and were planning to move so it was such a sweet idea to have part of the shoot at their home to capture some of the details and memories that they shared while living there. You can imagine the emotions that surfaced during this shoot at the thought of Cami going off to college as well as selling their home that was so meaningful to them. It was a really special time that we were honored to be a part of.

Next, we went down to the beach! Which included a whole lot of laughing while trying to make her dress and hair blow just right in the crazy wind. Another fun fact! Cami actually bought her prom dress early with this shoot in mind and wore her prom dress for the beach photos!! We didn't get too wild and make her get it wet or anything so Cami, hopefully it made it out okay and you can still rock prom with it! This dress was AMAZING. It was perfect for the beach. Well for photos at the beach.. :)

Cami, we are so proud of you!! We cannot wait to see what amazing things are in store for you as you start this next chapter at Point Loma!! Thank you so much for letting us be a part of such an exciting time in your life!!
