I met Crysta a few years ago when she attended a bridal show at the Center Club with her friend Jori who was getting married. I was the photographer at Jori & Jason’s wedding 2 years ago where Crysta was a bridesmaid and I remember her fun sense of humor and awesome tattoos :). When Crysta’s brother Chris was marrying his love Kelly last year Crysta hired me as a gift to them for their wedding (what an awesome sister). Finally it was Crysta’s turn and when Eric proposed to her last year I was so excited when she contacted me right away to let me know she wanted me to be the photographer for her wedding day. I feel like I already know her well so this engagement shoot was so relaxing and I had a great time getting to know Eric a little better. I can’t wait for your beautiful wedding day in the next few months!
We are so fortunate in Southern California to have such beautiful weather during “winter” that we can do an engagement session at the beach! It was a gorgeous sunny day when I met with Brian & Sara for their engagement in Laguna Canyon and then ended with the beach. I just loved Sara’s mega watt smile and their ease and fun with each other made this such an easy time. I can’t wait for your wedding this summer in Temecula!
It’s been a while since I last had the opportunity to shoot at Riley Wilderness and after the bit of rain we got a few weeks before Ryan & Karly’s engagement session it made everything so green and lush…almost like we had a season in California! I love when clients bring props or items that are special to them for their session and it was so cute that Ryan & Karly brought a wine bottle from the winery where they were engaged last year.
I had the pleasure of shooting a few weddings this past season in Temecula at some fabulous wineries. Wilson Creek is one of those spots that I’ve shot at a couple of times and I always love going. Morgan and Katie’s wedding in October was gorgeous and so filled with love. I especially loved when Katie had a first look with her Dad :).

I discovered Rent the Runway a few years ago when I was looking for a great designer dress for my high school reunion but didn’t want to spend a lot of money. A friend told me about Rent the Runway and it was perfect! They have amazing designer dresses that you can rent at a fraction of the retail price. Dresses that normally are sold for $275 or higher you can rent for around $50! What a great deal!! You can also rent accessories like jewelry and purses to complete the perfect look. The other awesome thing is Rent the Runway sends you 2 dress sizes just in case you are in between or unsure of the fit. Then when you are done you put them back into the shipping bag they provide and pop it into the mail and done!
So if you have and engagement session coming up and you are looking for a great dress but don’t want to spend a lot or even a gorgeous outfit for your engagement party that will surely bring tons of compliments then check them out. And an added bonus is $25 off your first order of $75 and more when you sign up (www.renttherunway.com). Happy shopping!
