Featured On Every Last Detail: All White Floral Wedding in Los Angeles

As an entrepreneur, it can be really easy to get caught up in the task list; there's always something that needs to get done and it can be overwhelming.  Over the last decade, I've had to learn to occasionally stop, take in all in for a second, enjoy the journey and celebrate the little wins along the way. One such moment came last week when I heard that my favorite wedding blog Every Last Detail featured one of our 2019 clients! Thank You Every Last Detail team! ❤️ Ambar and...

Griffith Observatory Engagement Photos | Veronica & Robert

When Robert and Veronica were planning their engagement session they knew they wanted to incorporate two things for sure: Los Angeles and dramatic photography.

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...

Los Angeles River Garden Center wedding

Los Angeles River Center and Gardens

From time to time I enjoy associate shooting with some of my fellow photography friends. While I enjoy being a primary shooter for my clients it can also be a lot of fun to photograph the wedding day from a second shooter perspective or alternate angle. A few months back I had the opportunity to tag along with Gary Coelho Photography & Pixel Perfect Wedding Films as a secondary photographer on a wedding at the Los Angeles River Center and Gardens in Los Angeles, CA.  As always, it was...

Candles and simple flower vases adorned each of the long banquet tables. After...

Family Portraits Griffith Observatory

A little over a month ago I met up with the Miranda family at Griffith Observatory in Hollywood for their family portrait session. We spent the afternoon exploring the grounds, taking turns telling silly jokes and creating fun images for their home. At the end of the session we worked our way down the hill and took a few more images from a nearby look out spot where you could see the observatory from a distance. Scroll on to see a few of my favorites from the session: ...

Intimate Pacific Palisades Wedding | Roy & Lorena

Roy and Lorena wanted to keep their wedding day simple and family oriented. They chose a beautiful, private residence in the Pacific Palisades to host under 50 guests for their special day. They gave their personally written vows against the breathtaking backdrop of the pacific ocean. Like many of those present, I found myself holding back tears as they promised to love and cherish each other for eternity. There's no doubt in my mind that Lorena and Roy are the perfect match. Here's a few of my favorite moments...
