California Wedding Photographer

Bryon & Mindy // Engaged at the Walt Disney Concert Hall

The metro pulled up to my stop downtown and as the doors opened I realized my hands were shaking. I walked to the spot Byron and I had talked about and waited - hands still shaking.

I saw them coming my way and gave the signal to their giddy friends in hiding.  It all happened so fast.  He was down on one knee and seconds later there were tears, hugs and disbelief.  

Before photography happened to me I sometimes wondered what it must be like to witness two people get engaged.  Now, I know.  I know it a lot.  How wonderfully weird it is that proposals have become a part of my job - my life.  I'm not mad about it. Not one bit.

Bridget & Zak // Married at Saddlerock Ranch

Together since their youth.  Eleven years of loving each other; something so rare these days.

The most beautiful vows hand written to perfection.  A ceremony that lasted an hour, but felt five minutes long.  Not a dry eye to be seen.  This love exists.  This love is possible.  This love is real.

// A wedding more about connection and less about theme.

// Guests greeted with champagne and a giraffe named Stanley.  

// Their best friends they’ve grown up with and adore.

They did things their way.  They brought their people together to celebrate not just the two of them, but their love for everyone present that day. Everything felt like them and I am honored to have been a part of it. 

// Bridget and Zak.  Married on a ranch in the canyons of Malibu.

From the first conversation Bridget and I had over the phone, we knew this was it.  We were in it together.  She wanted her day captured beautifully, nothing recycled.  She wanted someone who understood her love of simplicity and the classic.  I almost fell out of my chair with excitement. 

I knew that her day would not only be special for obvious reasons, but special for me as well. Couples who value me and are more interested in our connection rather than what's included in a package.  Something I will strive for, always.
