Old Ranch Country Club Wedding Photography

Old Ranch Country Club Wedding Photography Highlights

In addition to shooting for myself, I also help out other local photographers by second shooting. One of the photographers I work with often is Gary Coelho and today, I wanted to share a few highlights from a wedding I helped with him last year at Old Ranch Country Club in Seal Beach, CA. Old Ranch Country Club is nestled in a hidden corner of Seal Beach that's between the 405 freeway and Los Alamitos. It's got a beautiful structure and a fabulous ceremony view! The golf course also...

The Ranch at Laguna Beach Wedding Highlights

Recently I had the opportunity to assist Gary Coelho Photography on a wedding for one of their sweet couples, Joan and Jason at The Ranch at Laguna. The Ranch at Laguna Beach is a gorgeous gem of a venue! It's a hotel and spa that's tucked in the canyon along PCH between Laguna Beach and Aliso Viejo. The roomy bungalows make for a  great place for the bridal party to get ready and for out of town wedding guests to stay as well. It was a gorgeous wedding with beautiful scenery...

Palm Springs Adventure Shoot

In each of our lives we only have so much time and energy to expend. There are only so many things we can say “yes” to before we are tapped out. So we’re faced with carefully selecting which things in our life get a “yes” and which get a “no.” Our brains love the path of least resistance, especially when we’re already tired. As a result, sometimes we find ourselves saying “yes” out of habit and “no” out of a fear of what might happen; After the fact...

Dreamy engagment photos in Coto De Caza

Dreamy Couples Photoshoot in Coto de Caza

My brother-in-law and his wife recently celebrated 20 years of marriage. We decided to celebrate by planning a dreamy couples photoshoot in Coto de Caza. They hadn't had any professional couples photos taken since their engagement session so we wanted to make this special! Pride & Prejudice and Gone with the Wind are some of my sister-in-law's all time favorites, so we wanted to loosely capture the essence of the romance in those films without making it into a theme shoot. The Wardrobe I love when couples dress up for their...

Yorba Linda Engagement Photographer | Randall & Damaris

Damaris was doing some volunteer work when she first laid eyes on Randall. Without a word he'd charmed her and she asked her sister (who knew Randall) if he was single. Shortly thereafter the two started getting to know each other and both felt a connection they couldn't deny. It wasn't long before "I love you's" were exchanged and Randall found himself down on one knee in the sand, ocean breeze blowing by, asking for Damaris' hand in marriage. Spoiler alert: She said yes! ;) We met at Yorba...

Pantone Ultra Violet Wedding Inspiration for 2018

Last week the color experts at Pantone announced it's pick for 2018: Ultra Violet 18-3838 I feel like we saw a lot of purple tones during the 2017 wedding season, so I'm curious if the trend will continue into next year. Just for fun, I thought we could look back at some of my favorite violet weddings from the past year. If you're looking for ultra violet wedding inspiration, look no further. ;)   Our editorial shoot earlier this year with Kimberly Persons at Marbella Country Club had dramatic pops of...
