Jillanne + Rod Wedding

Tucked away behind a 100-year-old forest, Jillanne and Rod’s wedding at the totally secluded Green Gables Wedding Estate was a complete pleasure to photograph!

Jillanne + Rod Engagement

I had the pleasure of photographing Jillanne and Rod for their engagement shoot in Huntington Beach recently, and I can’t be happier with how the shots turned out!

KiKi + Edward Wedding

I get great fulfillment from photographing the love, happiness and raw emotion of a bride and groom’s wedding day. KiKi and Edward’s big day was no exception! Every moment, from exchanging heartfelt vows at the beautiful Chapel of Orange to munching on late-night In-N-Out burgers together, was genuine and moving. KiKi and Edward had a great time […]

Heather + Eric Wedding

It was raining all morning leading up to Heather and Eric’s outdoor wedding at Golden Hills Golf Club in Redding.

Krystal and Denzil’s gorgeous wedding at the Temecula Creek Inn was a visual buffet, filled with colorful and unique details, which is always a wedding photographer’s dream!

Daisy + Martin Honeymoon Shoot

Five months after her wedding, Daisy reached out to me about wanting to set up sort of a “honeymoon” photo shoot with her new husband and their adorable dog Moo at the beach in full bride and groom get-up. There were lots of poses and photo ideas she still wanted to do that we couldn’t […]

Krystal + Denzil Engagement

Krystal and Denzil are avid campers and lovers of the outdoors, so it was fitting that their engagement photos were taken at Caspers Wilderness Park before they set up to camp for the night. The sun was low in the sky on a warm day in October and there was nobody on the entire camp […]

Cristina & Tony Wedding

Cristina and Tony’s wedding was brimming with intimate and colorful details, from the elegant florals to the ornate dress of traditional Cambodian dancers.

Cristina + Tony Engagement

On a clear and wind swept day this past summer, Cristina and Tony had their engagement photos taken at Angel’s Gate Park, where a stunning hilltop view of the Pacific Ocean seems to stretch on forever.

I had the priviledge of flying out to Tahoe this summer to document Laura and John’s wedding at the beautiful Northstar Resort.

Alina + Clint

It was a warm autumn afternoon when Alina and Clint met me at Cedar Grove Park in Tustin for their engagement shoot.

Meghan and David’s wedding in San Pedro was everything you would expect from a vintage seaport celebration, complete with tattoos, pearl necklace and a hot rod. The festivities were held at Ports O’ Call Waterfront Dining, and the view of the Port of Los Angeles was the perfect backdrop for a heart warming ceremony. Meghan […]

It’s not often that a bride-to-be knows exactly what she wants in terms of engagement photos, but I really appreciate it when she does.

Whitney and Curtis’ wedding on the roof of the Marina Del Rey Marriott was breathtaking to say the least.

I spent a wonderful afternoon over the summer with Mary and Steve, who had a great time on their engagement/maternity shoot at the Huntington Beach Equestrian Center.

The LA skyline, gritty […]

Whitney and Curtis’ engagement shoot at the iconic and breathtaking Griffith Observatory has to go down as one of my all time favorites.

Jennifer + Jesse Wedding: Long Beach Museum of Art

I’ve never shot a wedding at sunrise, so this was an exciting first for me. The Long Beach Museum of Art is a local landmark and one that features historic brick buildings and a magnificent bluff-top view of Long Beach Harbor and the Pacific Ocean. The sun rose through the marine layer and created an ethereal […]
