It's always a blast second shoot for Nicole and this Temecula vineyard wedding was nothing short of awesome. Karissa and Eric have been guests at a few of the weddings I've shot with Nicole, so I instantly recognized them and was totally comfortable around them. They're such a sweet and thoughtful couple who clearly love each other. They shared special moments together from their first look to Eric reading the note Karissa left him to hanging out with their wedding party.

Weddings in downtown are such a dream because us photographers can get all sorts of creative! The arts district is especially awesome because no matter where you look, theres a killer background. Amy and Oleg both got ready at the Ace Hotel then headed over to Millwick for their intimate ceremony. We spent a lot of time hanging out with them and taking photos all over DTLA beforehand!

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!

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.

I swear, Nicole gets the sweetest couples! Chris and Colleen were so fun to be around plus they had an awesome wedding party! The guys were easy to work with, which is who I spent most of the time with. Everyone was hyped up and ready to celebrate the beautiful couple. Chris + Colleen are a dream to photograph, so enjoy!!
