Nicole and Bryan chose to have their wedding at the Turnip Rose in Costa Mesa earlier this year – it was beautiful! This venue was a perfect mixture of elegance, classy, fun and of course romantic! I’ve been lucky enough to capture Bryan’s brothers wedding a couple years ago, so it was really great to continue on the tradition in the Mewes family. Plus, this family sure knows how to put on a wedding – wow, so much fun was had!

Nicole looked flawless in her perfectly made wedding dress and the groom didn’t look so bad himself ;). Green Leaf Designs put together a gorgeous wedding bouquet for the bride. It complimented the month of February beautifully! Thank you Nicole & Bryan for letting me be apart of your special day. I am looking forward to seeing your journey into Mr. & Mrs. Mewes! Congratulations!

Abbot Kinney in Venice Beach is definitely one of the most unique places in Los Angeles. That street has such a vibrant energy, that is ridiculously contagious! Not to mention, crazy good shopping…but that’s for a different blog post;)Abbot Kinney was an awesome place for Kara and Daniel to take their engagement photos. We had a great time running around the little beach town. They were even game to stop in a little bar and have a beer break. How fun is that!? Anyway, get looking at this super fun and cute couple below. Can’t wait for their wedding later this month! Thanks Kara & Daniel:)

Have I mentioned how much I love engagement sessions…because I really do! Jamie & Michael are so sweet and it was so much fun shooting their session in Downtown Santa Ana. It’s hard to find a true downtown feel in Orange County, which is what was so great about Santa Ana! The architecture and unique streets gave this engagement session so much character and life! I am definitely looking forward to their wedding in October. Until then, here are a few of my favorite moments with Jamie & Michael. Congratulations you two!

I feel super blessed to be able to shoot weddings in Orange County. But, when the opportunity comes to escape a little bit North to Los Angeles, I always jump at the chance! I was especially excited to shoot this wedding in the Santa Rosa Valley with Deanna of Chic Ambiance Events. Deanna always puts on the most gorgeous weddings – every little detail put together with such attention. I can’t say enough great things about her! Hidden Garden Flowers complemented the wedding perfectly with their floral designs; wedding bouquets, arrangements and the simple yet elegant brides flower crown.

And oh my gosh, how could I not mention how STUNNING the bride and groom looked! They truly made my job super easy. Not only were they unbelievably stunning, they were the sweetest couple. You could tell how much love they had for each other just by looking at them and how much FUN they had! So, without further ado….here is Mr. & Mrs. George! Congratulations you two;)

Mama Ashley is getting ready to become a mom again! I love seeing my clients grow as a family…and I get a front row seat;)I’m sure you have seen their adorable son all over our social media – he is to die for! I am sure his little sibling will be a pint-sized version of him, and I just cannot wait. Until this family of three becomes a family of four, here are some super fun and sweet shots of their ever-growing family. Congratulations, Stifts! I am really excited for this next chapter in your life. You will love it!
