This super adorable family travelled all the way from France to shoot a lovely session with me on this fantastic little beach.  Ha, I kid!   But they did travel all the way from France for a lovely three weeks in the SoCal sun and some friend time with the always adorable Buccolas (whose family session is coming up)!   I was so happy to meet them and so thrilled that they decided to do their family session here.  I think that doing these sessions when you’re on vacation, when you’re super relaxed, when there’s nothing else on the agenda, it’s always good!  Such a great way to document a fantastic vacation and a growing family!

Charles & Edouard (who turned 1 the day of our session!) are so adorable, so well-behaved and so funny!  Charles was a perfect model and Edouard gave me a run for my money!  But those eyes… such great eyes!   I had such a wonderful time with these sweet little family and am so thrilled with our images.  We got some beautiful light on the beach, and then finished up with a birthday cake smash and a glass of rosé (clearly, these are my people!)

Alex, Thibaut, Charles & Edouard – Thank you so much for such a fabulous afternoon!  I hope that the rest of your vacation is going so well and that you’re enjoying all of the sun!  Perhaps, next time, we meet up on your side of the pond!

These two flitted in to my life just briefly, long enough for a pretty session in the hills, and then headed back out.  Gloria has been in medical school here in LA for the past three years while Alejandro worked in Tennessee.  They travelled back and forth and their relationship has blossomed from opposite sides of the country.  But now, with just a few weeks before their big day, these two are driving across the country to start a brand new life.  I couldn’t be happier for the two of them and was so thrilled to document the closing of this chapter in their lives in LA.

Gloria & Alejandro – So many congratulations on all of the amazing things going on in your lives right now!  I hope that the drive was uneventful, that the wedding will be incredible and that your life, living in the same city, will be magnificent!  It was an absolute pleasure to photograph the two of you!  Congratulations!

Karin and I go way back.  Way back.  She’s been a bridesmaid in not one, but two weddings I shot over the past few years.  (Melissa & Brook and Alli & Matt… it was so great to see you all!)  She was always one the liveliest and most fun bridesmaids, always making my job so much fun.  But last week she was my bride and it was so amazing to get to know her!  She’s even more lively, even more fun and even more beautiful than I’d thought.  And Doug got to marry her.  These two, they are such lucky ones.

Karin & Doug met at work… he was her boss.  I can only imagine how that all got started, but I’m so happy that it did.  Karin & Doug are absolutely wonderful together, they make a great couple and their wedding day was nothing short of perfection.   The were married under the trees at The Temecula Creek Inn, such a beautiful venue.  Her brother officiated one of the most heartfelt ceremonies I’ve ever documented.  It was sweet and funny and seemed a perfect representation of Karin & Doug as a couple.  Each detail was impeccable, little treats everywhere you looked.  But more than that, the warm and amazing welcome from every guests made me feel like we were attending an intimate gathering of the closest family & friends.  It was truly a lovely day, and I’m so happy to have been a part of it!

Karin & Doug – I hope that the Maldives are treating you well and that you each have a delicious cocktail in hand.  So many congratulations on a beautiful wedding and best wishes for the happiest of marriages.  I am so happy for you both!

She circled him at the beginning of their ceremony, then he circled her.  And they never let go of one another, never once.  They couldn’t take their eyes off each other.  The love was absolutely palpable, you could feel it emanating from the two of them, from their friends and from their families.  I don’t think I’ve laughed more, or shed more tears at a wedding.  It was such a special day and I am so happy to have documented every moment of it.

Abby & Jonathan were married on Sunday at The Sephardic Temple in LA.  It was a day that really focused on the two of them and the intense love they share with their families, who already seem so intertwined.    The stories shared were funny, sweet and an amazing view into their lives.  Each and every person I met overflowed with gratitude and admiration for each and every other family member.  It was so lovely!

Abby & Jonathan – I am so thrilled for the two of you!   You two are so intentional, so special, and I feel honored to know you.  This next adventure will be incredible for you both and I wish you nothing but the best.  Mazel Tov!

Two people couldn’t be more in sync with one another.  It seems they’ve been following each other for most of their lives.  Now, they are next to one another, standing side by side, as they take on this new life adventure together!  These two, Michelle & Bryan, are so absolutely perfect for each other.  Their wedding day will go down as one of my favorites, because it was so genuine.  IT seemed to be a perfect representation of them, as individuals and as a couple.  They have a beautiful respect for one another, an immense love for their families and true admiration for their friends.  It was an incredible day, full of love and laughter and I couldn’t be more thrilled for the two of them!

Michelle & Bryan were married at Maravilla Gardens, one of my favorite little venues in Camarillo.  It was the perfect backdrop to their sweet wedding.  The Little Branch played off the soft nature tones of Maravilla with the most amazing florals and one of the most solid bridal bouquets I’ve ever had the pleasure of shooting.  On the longest day of 2014, we used up every bit of light we could and celebrated long in to the night!

Michelle & Bryan – so many congratulations!  It was such a lovely day and I’m so happy to have been a part of it.  Thank you so much for your trust and your ease, it was an absolute pleasure to photograph the two of you.  I wish you nothing but the best in a long and happy marriage!
