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...

Downtown Fullerton Photoshoot | Anika & Erik

A while back photographed Anika & Erick in Downtown Fullerton. I love the feel of the architecture in that area, you get an urban scene without it being a big city look. There's a great variety of both architecture and greenery to create a nice mix of backdrops for photos. We started our shoot near Branagans, a small Irish pub where they wanted to take a few photos. The bartender was kind enough to let us snap a few at the bar before we continued on with our shoot...

Walt Disney Concert Hall DTLA Photo Shoot

I'm pretty sure it's no secret at this point that I LOVE working as a photographer. I love that photography gives me a creative outlet to enjoy, a gift I can share with others and the coolest thing about photography is that there are SO MANY facets and genres. There's always something new to explore and experiment with whether it's style, genre or technique! My absolute favorite genre (I'm sure you can guess!) is wedding photography, obviously. Ha! My second favorite is photographing engagement sessions and anniversary shoots. Lately, I've had a...

Newport Beach Engagement Photos | Jocelyn & Oscar

The first time Jocelyn met Oscar, she knew she liked him. Little did she know he instantly felt the same way, but both of them were too shy at first to say anything. Soon after they met, Oscar arranged for a group of friends and family to hang out and he, of course, invited Jocelyn too. When most of the group ended up cancelling that night, Jocelyn decided to come along anyway. After Oscar saw how well she got along with his family, he knew she was the...
