AN INTIMATE WATERFRONT WEDDING

Living in California, I can't get enough of beachfront weddings and elopements. I was stoked when Laura asked me to second shoot this intimate Oceanside elopement between her sister Sarah and her better half, Ben. This was so so special to be a part of because while it was intimate, each person had a role and part in the overall day. Whether it was creating the florals, handing the couple the rings, or doing a short reading during ceremony, each person was a part of their day. It was beautiful to witness such a tight bond between a family.

A sweet sweet love centered around the love of Christ. Jess and Kyle were married in San Marcos surrounded by their family and friends. It was a perfect day at a beautiful venue where everything was within walking distance. Look at that light, too! Enjoy!

This couple, this venue, their love for each other - those are the things you want on a wedding day! These two are absolutely gorgeous and are so in love - they have a little girl to prove it! Their day featured lots of time with their family including a special family dance, lots of laughter, beer and good times! This wedding brought a mix of dark and moody + bright and colorful. Enjoy!!

Okay, okay, okay Sophia Bush lookalike or what?! I couldn't get over it!! I swear Cinthia is a dead ringer for Sophia Bush! It's the facial structure - the cheekbones + smile. The wedding was absolutely gorgeous! We were able to walk to the church from her hotel then we jumped in our cars and headed to the reception venue, El Cortez. Enjoy!!

Maria + Rudy: Longshadow Ranch & Winery Wedding

A TEMECULA VINEYARD WEDDING

It's always a pleasure second shooting for Nicole Leever. She is one of the best people I've met this year. She photographed my friend's wedding, so I reached out in hopes she would meet for coffee or let me second shoot... She did both! Here's a quick lesson for all of you out there... Email, message, DM, comment, reach out! You never know what could come of it. Thanks to Nicole, I've basically shot every weekend except for 2-3 Saturdays of this wedding season. I can't thank her enough! I'm looking forward to next year's round of weddings!
