Wooooooo! 2018! You were freaking great! All of you are freaking great, too! Thankful! That’s the best word to describe how i feel about 2018 - thankful. Another successful year for me and this is really only year 2 for weddings. I worked with some of the best couples this year and again was able to travel the world! I photographed couples in LA, OC, London, New York, Minneapolis, New Jersey, Canada, Tucson, Palm Springs, and Santa Barbara! Cheers to 2018! Check out some of my favorites from this year!! See you in 2019!

Okay I know Venice is cool, but hot dang these two make Venice COOL! It was actually super hot this day and they were 10000% on fiiiire, but they rocked it. Lizette loves Sam Smith, so we spent the day searching for him along Abbot Kinney. We did run into Sam Claflin, who I totally made eye contact with and shortly after tripped while holding Lizette's bouquet and texting my mom to tell her I saw him haha! Thankfully the bouquet was fine and I only had a scraped knee ha! Enjoy these ridiculously hip couple!

A BACKYARD FAMILY SESSION

Absolutely LOVED this backyard family session with The Greenbergs. We met in the middle of the day for a quick session and the light was GORGEOUS! Grandad was there, too to join in and of course we had include their fur baby. I love sessions like this because they're already in their comfort zone and can just hang out. I let the boys play a little and have fun, but also snapped some posed photos.

Haley and Wade recently announced they're a couple in early September, but their love for one another has quickly become apparent to everyone around them. When you know, you know!

I've known Wade for a few years now and have shot him solo, so I was excited to see him in a relationship. I mentioned wanting to do some shots similar to Kat Irlin's, but in LA. Wade was stoked and Haley of course jumped on board. We met at Alfred Coffee on Melrose Place. I've met nice people, but let me tell you! Haley is one of the sweetest, nicest people you'll ever meet. She's so welcoming and makes you feel like you've known each other forever. I really enjoyed hanging out with them and capturing their love. Enjoy!
