When wedding season is in full force, the artist within me is bursting at the seams to escape and let the creativity flow. No expectations, no comparisons, no pressure.

To let you in on a little secret, we’ve been dreaming of collaborating with some of the amazing vendors we’ve formed closed relationships with over the past few years and start hosting styled workshops. Wouldn’t that be awesome!?!? An environment where all you have to do is have fun building your portfolio while being creative at your own pace. More details on this coming soon!

Sometimes inspirational shoots are just what you need to give you that little boost. The way that the setting sun burst through over the cliffs and illuminated the beach, absolutely took my breath away.  I remember standing there once the shoot ended and taking in the scene, and feeling so thankful. It was one of the moments that occasionally catches me off-guard, when I remember that with God, my camera, and a dream, brought me to this exact place. Sometimes it’s hard to wrap my head around. Here are a few of our favorites. Enjoy!

Nikki and Evan are a real-life couple who spent the afternoon with us as models and I couldn’t be more grateful…they’re beautiful, inside and out.

Many, many thanks to the amazing team who brought these wedding photos to life!

Hidden Hills Ranch, tucked away in a secluded hillside, is where these two met many years ago. It only seemed right to come back and celebrate the start of their new life together. The day was perfect. After months of texts and emails and then meeting in person for both our coffee date and engagement session, we felt like a part of the family!! Rachel and I loved being a part of their beautiful wedding day and I can’t wait to show you their images!!

 

 

Beautiful inside and out! That just begins to describe Alicia, one of our Class of 2015 Senior Model Reps. Her bubbly personally lights up everywhere she goes and it’s contagious! We laughed hysterically so much throughout this entire session it was hard to get the “serious” look, but she did, AND perfectly to say the least. I could have photographed her for hours. Ending on an epic note, we got in the river while she played her violin. Seriously AMAZING! You should have seen the looks we got from park goers… but she carried on like a champ. Alicia, it was all worth is. You are BREATHTAKING!!!
