When they say "my big fat Greek wedding" it is nothing short of big and fat and Greek! Talk about a fun crew - the groomsmen were hilarious to hang out with and the couple was gorgeous! This wedding was so fun, especially once everyone got to dancing!! Their first look was awesome, even though she couldn't move because her dress was SO HUGE! But actually wait until you see how many people had to carry her dress. It was such an interesting and fun day, I'll let the photos do the talking!

It's always such a blast working with Carsten, so I was beyond stoked when she asked me to associate shoot this elopement. It was a perfect day for an elopement at Terranea. The sky was blue on one side and overcast on the other side - weird I know, but that's what it was like, which made for gorgeous blue skies behind them, but clean, even lighting on their faces. They opted for a first look then we went out onto the rocks to get some killer shots. Their ceremony was led by their friend Matt where they were surrounded by their closest family and friends. Enjoy!

Meet the Pitzels! We met in LA at one of my favorite coffeeshops, Alfred's Coffee. I feel so blessed and honored to have been a part of their special day. The flew me out to Nashville along with their family and friends to celebrate their new journey in Franklin, TN. What a dream to actually get out to Nashville for the first time for such a wonderful event. The day was full of hay bales, cowboy boots and blue jeans. Thanks for letting me be a part of your day!

Thanks James and Nicole for allowing me to be a part of such an intimate and special day in your lives. I feel so blessed to work so closely with awesome couples like these two. They shared an intimate ceremony with few family and friends at Lazy C Ranch in Palm Springs. It's such a rad venue in the desert - such a beautiful backdrop! They were also able to rock two different outfits. They spent their honeymoon there as well, so we grabbed some fun shots of them throughout their stay. Enjoy!
