Venice, California is probably one of the most romantic places in Los Angeles. The adorable houses surrounded by the calming canals, beautiful bridges and cute sidewalks give off such a serene and peaceful feeling. It was the perfect place to have Casey and Myles’ engagement session. I loved being able to see their personalities flourish:)It was hard to choose just a few of their pictures – as they were such naturals! But here are a few of my top favs. While this engagement session was done earlier this year, I just couldn’t resist showing them off! Stay tuned for their wedding feature:)

I love this time of year! Fall is in the air, and the holidays are just around the corner. It’s been such a hot summer here in Orange County but I am hopeful for a rainy day here soon! I recently had the privilege to have a family session with the Bauer’s. These boys were so much fun to photograph. Their big grins and playfulness with each other was a blast to capture. Thanks goodness we went to Pines Park because a family session would not be complete without these brothers climbing some trees : )

It’s always nice to escape a little bit of Orange County now and again. While the Point Vicente Interpretive Center in Los Angeles isn’t that far away, it has such a beautiful and peaceful setting that I almost always feel that I’ve traveled back East. I think it’s the gorgeous lighthouse on the cliff overlooking the ocean that does it. Ambery Lay Events put on a beautiful ceremony and reception for Lauren and Matt’s wedding this past summer. She even did her bouquet – such talent! I’m still dreaming about their tasty wedding cake by Sweet & Saucy Shop. It seriously was so good! Lauren looked amazing in her Panache wedding dress, and Matt’s handsome smile complemented her perfectly. Congratulations to the Appenfelders!

Living in Orange County, I get to shoot many incredible weddings – I really feel so lucky that I get to do this as my job! But, I can honestly say that the next best thing to shooting weddings, are family sessions. I’ve never had so much fun than with the Smith family. They made me feel like I was apart of their awesome family. It was such a treat to capture their candid personalities and you can tell that family means the world to them! Here are just a few of the many FUN pictures I got of them. Hope you enjoy looking at them as much as I loved taking them!
