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...

Couples Portraits | Irvine, CA

I think it's pretty obvious by now that I adore working with couples in love. There's something so fulfilling about chronicling that intimacy and spark between two people who are about to promise their lives to each other. While the majority of the couples I work with are engaged and just starting out, I occasionally get the opportunity to photograph people who's bond has grown ever deeper since they said "I do." A few weeks ago I worked with one such couple. I met with Elena and Craig at...

Orange County Photography Mini Session | Ryan & Mindy

If you know me, you know I LOVE spoiling my clients!

Fullerton Love Story Portrait Session: Steven & Laila

Recently I met up with Steven and Laila in Fullerton for their Love Story portrait session. While I truly feel that all of the sessions and people I photograph are special, this one has a particular place in my heart. Unlike most of the couples I photograph, Steven and Laila have been together for a long time, married 11 years in fact! So we wanted to find something that made this session an extra special memory. While we were talking, Laila told me that when they were dating...

Laguna Beach Engagement Photography: Ben & Nadine

I had the pleasure of meeting up with Ben and Nadine for their Laguna Beach engagement photography session recently. While we were there they told me the story of how they met: "I met the perfect person for you!" We've all heard it before. A helpful friend wants to introduce us to a friend of a friend. They tell us all about how perfect they are for us, they show us a picture and hopeful, we agree to meet them. And that's when Ben knew. The night they met he knew...
