My Home on Glitter Guide

 

Six years ago, we bought a house that was, well, not so pretty.   We’ve spent the last six years tearing down rooms and building them back up into places we wanted to share with our friends and families.  It has been one of the most amazing adventures of my life.  And finally, FINALLY, it is ready to share with the world!   Heather Kincaid shot the most beautiful images of my favorite places in the world and I will be forever indebted to her for documenting this home.  I will cherish these images forever and ever!  Moira Taylor Paris made me look oh so pretty.   And those girls at Floral Crush… well, flowers make everything so much better and they did an amazing job!

There’s a whole post over on Glitter Guide today, you can see it here!  And keep an eye over on Cocktails for Breakfast… I think I’m going to do some before and afters.  It’s so hard to believe that this is the same place that it was six years ago.   Now, to just dig up those old images!

Rosie: The Newborn Session

 

Ashley & Brett were one of my absolute favorite weddings last year.  They are amazing, the day was beautiful and it was all just perfect.  So perfect.

And then they had Rosie.  And she’s perfect.  She was calm and tiny and looked straight into my camera with her little model face.   That girl has a future in front of the camera and I’m so happy to have been part of her very first photoshoot!   Ashley & Brett are incredible new parents, they wear this new title with such love and pride.  It was the loveliest way to spend a morning!  Welcome to the world Rosie!

Ashley, Brett & Rosie – Thank you for inviting me into your lives and allowing me to document this incredible time for you.  Your daughter is amazing and I couldn’t be happier for the two of you!   So many congratulations on your growing family!

Sarah & Lior: The Mill Valley Outdoor Art Club Wedding

 

I met Sarah & Lior what feels like a million years ago.  Well, it wasn’t quite that long, but it feels like I’ve known them forever.  They were living in NYC, and I happened to be shooting a wedding there.  So, we met up at one of my favorite restaurants in the city and hit it off right away.  They are kind and caring and generous and adorable together and I was thrilled that they wanted me to shoot their wedding in the Bay Area!  I’ve been slowly getting to know them, following their planning via Instagram, their cross country move, new jobs and all the details.  And on Sunday, everything came together spectacularly!  It was the loveliest of days and I couldn’t be more excited for these two!

Sarah & Lior were married at The Outdoor Art Club in Mill Valley.  I’d never been to Mill Valley before, turns out, it’s adorable and quaint and perfect.  I brought the LA weather with me, and we had a beautiful blue sky and a hot day (sorry about that!).   But it was perfect, and it was a honor to document!

Sarah & Lior – Thank you thank you thank you!   It was such a beautiful day and I am so happy for the two of you!   Thank you for letting me be a part of such an amazing day and for introducing me to your hometown!   It was an incredible pleasure!

Heather & Kyle: The Santa Barbara Courthouse Ceremony

 

Bright lips.  Tassel earrings.  Forrest green heels.  Ohhh I love a bride that will go so bold on her wedding day!  Heather looked absolutely incredible, and each of those details was chosen impeccably!  And Kyle, dapper as always.  That smile, when he saw her walking toward him, melted me.  These two are pretty fantastic!

I think weddings are amazing, and it’s so tough because they go by so quickly.  Blink, and months and months of planning is over before you know it.  Heather & Kyle decided instead, to make it a two day event!   Spread the amazing wedding euphoria out over a few days!  I think it was an amazing idea and I am so happy to have been part of day 1, their ceremony. They were married at The Santa Barbara Courthouse, one of my favorites, in a sweet little ceremony, surrounded by their closest family and friends.  It was really sweet and funny and beautiful.  We shot around the amazing property and then they were off to an intimate dinner, followed by a big party the next evening.  It was lovely!

Heather & Kyle – It was a pleasure!  You two are pretty amazing and I couldn’t be happier for you!   It was an incredible day and I hope that the weekend only got better!   Thank you so much for letting me be a part of your day!  Congratulations!

Hilary, Brian, TJ & Brooke: The Family Shoot

 

This family has spent more time in front of my camera than any other. There was their engagement, one of my favorites ever. And their super romantic wedding at Lake Oak Meadows. Remember when TJ was a little one, ohhh, two years ago? Well, this little group has grown by one, so they’re back! Brooke is so teeny tiny and just the sweetest. And TJ, ohhh TJ. It took some work to get him to like me, but I think I did it and I adore that little boy.

Document all of these stages for my clients is such a treat for me.  Watching them grow, seeing me and my work grow… it’s something so special and I am forever grateful to you all for allowing me to do it.  Thanks guys :-)

Hilary, Brian, TJ & Brooke – It was such an absolute pleasure! I am so happy to see you all again, and so happy to document this growing family! You four are so great!  So many congratulations!

Kristina & Casey: The Casa del Mar Wedding

 

It’s very rare that I don’t really get to know a bride & groom until their wedding day.  I’d met Kristina briefly at her sisters’ wedding a few years ago at The Langham, and was absolutely honored when they booked me over the phone.  That feeling of trust is so good!   I was nervous, because, I’m usually nervous, but even more so that I didn’t know Kristina & Casey.  My goal is always to photograph a couple in their most natural interaction with each other.  I was nervous I wouldn’t really know what that was, because I didn’t know them.  I was silly.   These two are so lovely and made my work so easy.  Because they are head over heels in love with each other and it shines out of their faces.

They were married at Saint Monicas Catholic Church, which is so lovely!  And a reception at Casa del Mar, even lovelier!   The light there, it is something to write home about.  The weather was amazing, the room was incredible and the entire event was amazing.  Thanks so much to these amazing folks… DNT Events, My Wedding Blooms, The Butter End, Sweet & Saucy Shop & Pacific Events!

Kristina & Casey: You two are fantastic.  They day was amazing and I am so happy to have documented it for you.  I hope that your honeymoon is treating you well… so many congratulations!

Erin & Brian: The Calamigos Ranch Wedding

 

Ohhh, these two.  Erin & Brian are two of the most down to Earth, fun and genuine people I know.  Their engagement session was one of my favorites this year and I knew that the wedding would be even more spectacular.  I was correct! There are no two people that were more relaxed, or seemed to enjoy their wedding day more than these two.  It made for a relaxed day, full of laughter and so much heart.  Looking back over these images, makes me so happy… it was one of those days that makes me so happy to do what I do.

Erin & Brian – Thank you for such a lovely day!   You two make my job so much fun and I absolutely loved documenting  your wedding day.  I hope you’re having the loveliest honeymoon!   Congratulations!

Gaji LA: Food Photography

 

People are really the heart & soul of Hazelnut Photography, but food is the heart & soul of me.  I love food in every way, shape and form and I was thrilled when Minh, the chef at Gaji contacted me about shooting this brand new restaurant.  A little shooting of the interiors, a bit of their beautiful dishes and then A LOT of me eating every single plate.  I left so full… in my heart and in my stomach.

So, make yourself a reservation next time you’re heading downtown.  It was delicious!

Oh, and here see a lovely writeup with some of my images on Eater LA (one of my favorite blogs!)

Carlos, Elvira, Mateo & Olivia: The Family Shoot

 

Meeting the babies of my past wedding clients is such a thrill for me!  Being there when a couple takes the step into marriage is beautiful and rewarding.  But, documenting this next major step in their lives, that is incredible.   It’s sweet and tender and oh so beautiful.

Elvira & Carlos were married in 2010 at Union Station.  It was a lovely event full of so many details and Elvira has definitely not lost that touch for the little bits that make life so interesting.  Their shoot was simple, but with the small touches that make it absolutely perfect.  Their son Mateo is so much fun.  He’s playful and inquisitive… and those eyes!   They just melt your heart!  Olivia is just two weeks old.  She’s tiny and sweet and smells like a perfect little newborn.  She was the perfect little model and put up with all of our posing… except for that GORGEOUS flower crown (thanks so much Instyle Blooms!), that she didn’t really enjoy all that much.

Elvira, Carlos, Mateo & Olivia – Congratulations to the four of you!   Your family is so sweet and I’m so happy to have met the two newest additions… they are absolutely perfect!   Thank you so much for a great shoot!
