Catching up on some long overdue blogging. Been a bit awol since the baby arrived, which has been the most beautiful distraction. But thought I’d start things back up again with Chris and Samantha’s beautiful wedding at The Castle Green. Wedding coordination Cathy Machado of An Event Two Be (one of the best around and a personal fave). Enjoy!
Keith and Kate’s DIY wedding at Puddingstone Resort was full of personality, style, laughter, tears, and of course love. SOOO much love! From beautiful hilltop views, to books and penguins on the tables, this wedding was definitely stamped with their unique individual style and fun personalities. Thanks for an amazing day and congratulations on what is sure to be a life full of love, adventure, and laughter.
We had a little fun designing and executing this bridal session (I even got to play florist for a day. How did I do? Like that headband? Haha). Such a stunning couple and a truly beautiful day. I especially enjoyed creating an entire living room space in the middle of the forest (be sure to check out the full blog entry to see what I mean). Chelsi & Matt you guys are amazing!! Special thanks to the whole team (especially Sonja!) for an awesome day and a special shout out to Mags Cathey on her always amazing makeup work. Be sure to check her out!!

Can Awesomeness be a theme? Cause that’s what this wedding was. Featuring: Iron Man on the dance floor, glow sticks, silly string, bubble gum, and a Les Miserables themed flash mob that will blow your mind. Plus, any wedding where the bride and groom dive off a stage for some amazing crowd surfing has to be labeled as “awesome at its best”, right? If all of that wasn’t enough, the pinnacle of the whole day – our lovely bride and groom – have to be two of the coolest cats in town. Seriously amazing people literally bursting with personality, fun, love, and kindness. Separately these two are a forced to be reckoned with. Together? Unstoppable. Congrats to this super-power couple. I am blessed to know you and so stoked I got to be part of your epic day!

Road trip! Kicked off the first of many bay area weddings this year with Vigen & Cristina’s San Francisco wedding. Let me tell you, this was one fun, elegant, crazy, and beautiful day. All I can say is Vigen and Cristina, you guys rock! But don’t take my word for it, I think the pics speak for themselves. Plus we got to shoot at the infamous Palace of Fine Arts as well as The Bridges Golf Club. Hard to go wrong there.
Thanks heaps and heaps to Vigen and Cristina for having us as a part of your unforgettable day. My cheeks are still sore from smiling. You two are an absolutely perfect match and we wish you nothing but a life full of love, beauty, adventure, and laughter.
This wedding felt like something out of a James Bond movie. Tuxedos, bow ties, cool cars, and of course the beautiful love interest. Or in this case, Roxanne, an absolutely stunning bride. But above all, what really stood out to me about this wedding was the overwhelming sense of love and family. Two different families from different parts of the world came together to form one new family and to embrace Till & Roxanne as they took their first steps as husband and wife. The whole day hummed with the buzz of excitement, laughter, love, and unity set to the backdrop of the famous Castle Green in Pasadena as well as the beautiful Pasadena City Hall. Congrats to Till & Roxanne! May you both have a life full of love, family, adventure, and success!

I was introduced to Julian & Alexandra through one of my favorite coordinators, Cathy Machado of An Event Two Be. She is seriously one of the best and truly amazing to work with, so be sure to check her out! At the time Julian & Alexandra were living in Paris so we set up a Skype Chat to talk about the day. After introducing them to Bear and Oliver – our kids/dogs who really wanted to see who was talking through the computer – we started talking more about their big day. We immediately hit it off and the more I learned about their wedding plans the more excited I got about being a part of it. I just knew it was going to be a beautiful, fun, and extremely memorable day in one of my favorite places to shoot – Catalina. The ceremony took place at the Descanso Beach Club with an amazing view of the crystal blue water and I was very excited to find out that their reception was to be held in the infamous Casino Ballroom! I have shot many times on Catalina and have always wanted to shoot inside the Casino Ballroom, and let me tell you, it is a gorgeous sight to behold. This was an absolutely stunning day full of style, fashion, laughter, tears, and love. I was thrilled to be a part of it and so glad to know Julian and Alexandra. They are two of the happiest people I have met with a zest for life and adventure. They are truly a perfect match.
I shot Doug & Jen’s engagement photos last year and over the course of emailing back and forth, sharing ideas, chatting save the dates, Facebooking, and phone calls I feel like I have really gotten to know Doug & Jen. Let me tell you there is very little not to like about these two. They are AWESOME! So much fun to be around and they are totally game for anything. They definitely know how to have a good time and in spite of it being well into the 100°s on the day of the wedding, they managed to keep things cool and packed their day with style and fun. And Oak Creek Golf Club was a beautiful setting for their amazing day. Plus it’s not every day you get to see the groom dress up as a Super Hero for the garter toss.

Congrats guys! I am so glad to know you and honored to have been a part of your spectacular day!
