Freddie & Jessica are married | The Reef | Long Beach Wedding Photographer

I met Jessica many years ago and had the pleasure of photographing her college graduation pictures so when she got engaged and asked me to be the photographer for her wedding I was so excited for her big day.  Freddie and Jessica are so adorable together and we were so fortunate to have a gorgeous day for their wedding in Long Beach, CA.

Chris & Melissa are married | Los Verdes Golf Club | Rancho Palos Verdes

It felt like forever ago that I had met with Chris & Melissa for their engagement session so I was very excited to see them again for their wedding day.  They are such a fun couple and with a 20 + person wedding party there was no shortage of good times to capture.  We were also fortunate to capture some amazing light and a beautiful sunset that day at Los Verdes Golf Club, I just love a Fall wedding!

Shane & Jayme are engaged | Laguna Beach Engagement

Is this thing still on?  Wow it's been a long time since I blogged that I'm not sure if anyone is still here!  Life has been busy with kids graduating and summer starting but my wedding season is starting up in full swing so I hope I still have some followers because I will have lots of beautiful weddings, engagement sessions and families to share coming up! And there is no perfect couple to start that with than Shane & Jayme!  Jayme happens to be the cousin of a client whose family I have had the pleasure of photographing a few times so when she recently got engaged and contacted me I was more than happy and excited to be the one to photograph her wedding.  I had so much fun with this couple all around Laguna Beach.  They were so at ease in front of the camera and just two of the sweetest people around.  I can't wait to photograph their wedding next month in Dana Point, CA!

Baby Reagan | Corona Del Mar Newborn Photographer

This is definitely a little different than you typically see on my blog.  I rarely get the chance to photograph a newborn but when I do I love when the parents have a vision of a session that is similar to my own.  My favorite type is a more relaxed and lifestyle type feel with baby cuddling and parents relaxing.  I almost feel like it's a day in the life where I am just a witness there to capture the day.  You also may notice more black & whites then typical but I just love a good b&w when it comes to babies.  When Reagan's parents contacted me and I told them my style for photographing newborns it was exactly what they wanted and I think the images we captured are going to be ones they will cherish for years to come.  Thank you for welcoming me into your home and I hope you take the time to slow down and enjoy this time with your new daughter.

Baby Madeline | Corona Del Mar photographer

As you can see from my blog I don't have the opportunity to photograph many newborns anymore so I was excited when I was contacted by little Madeline's mom to do a session with her.  Madeline was already 3 weeks so we were lucky that we got some beautiful alert  shots of her with her eyes open but we also got some great sleepy ones.  I hope you enjoy your sneak peek with many more to come soon!

Mark & Catrina Part 2 | Seal Beach Wedding Photographer

Mark and Catrina I hope you had a great honeymoon.  Here is another small sneak peek for you!  Thank you again for allowing me to photograph your wedding day.

Tina and Josh are Married | La Mirada Wedding Photographer

Last month I had the opportunity to go to Arizona for a VERY valuable mentoring session with the talented Keri Doolittle of Keri Doolittle Photography and while I was there I second shot a wedding with her.  The experience was amazing and as you can see the bride and groom as well as the location were stunning.  Thank you again Keri for this great opportunity, I learned so much.  Can't wait to see you again later this year!
