The last month has been a total whirlwind. There was no better way to kick of the 2015 wedding season than Kimi & Andrew's Crystal Marquis Ballroom Wedding last month! Filled with romance, laughter and LOTS of purple, Kimi and Andrew's big day was absolutely magical. When I arrived in the morning for bridal prep, Kimi greeted me at the door, calm as ever, with a huge smile on her face. I was so happy to see her so glowing and ready for the big day!

Huntington Beach Engagement Session | Roy & Lorena

On Roy and Lorena's first date, they met up in Huntington Beach for lunch and then went for walk in a quaint little park nearby. That's where it all began. As they talked, laughed, and got to know one another sparks flew and they began to see that there could be something special between them. Over the course of the next several years they would discover how special those sparks between them truly are. Then, in 2014 Roy asked Lorena to come along with him on a trip to...

Best Moments From 2014

I think I'm still trying to process the idea that 2014 is rapidly fading away. In all honesty, I feel like I blinked sometime in February and when my eyes reopened here I am and it's now December 31st. Where did it all go?

I love the way she mixed burlap and bling!   These two made my job so easy! A...
