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.

B + G got married at The Casino in San Clemente and it was a dream! It was a triple header weekend for me, so I was worried their wedding day might be a rough one. I made sure to stay hydrated all weekend, so their wedding day was as smooth as can be! They're such an easy couple to work with plus they hired an awesome coordinator, Dee of Cheerful Occasions who made the day run smooth for everyone. AND they were so so fun to be around - look out for all their extra fun photos, which make for great photos and good guest appeal!

Betty + Chris: Orange County Wedding

A San Clemente Backyard Wedding

The Barton wedding is officially hitting the blog & I'm stoked about it. This was the very first wedding I shot back in 2012! So wild!

Well, Chris and I first met at In N Out when he was my manager. He was favorite manager back then, so I was beyond excited when he asked me (and my friend Nico Marino) to photograph his wedding. Nico covered the ladies since he knew Betty better than I did and I covered Chris and the guys. Thankfully it was a small backyard wedding, so a great first wedding and I was able to work on it with a good friend of mine. 

We had a blast walking down the San Clemente pier taking photos after the ceremony, which you can see above -- Don't they look great? I'd say I did a pretty solid job on this for it being my first wedding!
