Dream friends make dream couple make dream clients! UGH all the goals! After a very unfortunate situation where my Valentine's Day shoot was canceled, I wound up making an even better come back with my friends Cameron and Shelby. Cameron and I had recently reconnected and I mentioned the situation while asking if he and his fiancé might be down for a similar shoot. Shelby had never modeled, but was down to try to help me and oh my word, let's be real she was probably better at modeling than Cameron (who was a professional model when he and I first met). We shot at their home in San Clemente then went down to Ole Hanson and shot by the beach. So so so thankful for friends like these who not only exceeded my expectations. but also were just so real and truly let me into their lives.

Ali + Terrie: Vintage Rose Wedding

AN ORANGE COUNTY DANCE PARTY

The day was all about these two and everyone knew it. They didn't have a wedding party, but they did have a party full of their dearest and closest friends. Guests can make or break a wedding, but hot dang their guests made their wedding! It was a total dance party and everyone was so happy, talkative and ready to celebrate these two. 

I second shot this wedding for Heidi Bolles. As a second shooter, you're typically there to make sure all details and cocktail hour are covered, sometimes groom prep if the getting ready times overlap. My main job was to cover details, which you'll see loads of throughout this blog post. I also made sure to get the groom greeting all of his guests as well as cocktail hour - people mingling and gathering groups together.

Enjoy!

Donna: La Mirada Bridal Shower

A TEA PARTY BRIDAL BRUNCH

Thanks Nicole Leever for sending Donna my way! She was so so sweet and her family and friends were so kind! The bridal shower was held at her brother's home, which was gorgeous!! They had a table setup for tea and brunch followed by games inside. Thankfully it was a nice day because previously it had been raining like crazy!
