Yosemite Wedding Portrait Session | Day After Photos | Mary and Mike

As a photographer, one of the greatest honors is being hired by a fellow photographer. There is nothing more flattering than having your work appreciated by another very talented artist. Which is why I was over-the-moon when Mary Costa got in touch with me about this session.
Adorable newlyweds…. on-point attire…. the beauty of Yosemite….. YES PLEASE!
While I knew without a doubt that this session would be completely epic and gorgeous… I underestimated how much FUN this adventure would be with Mike and Mary! I had my husband, Andrew, with me and it felt as if they were old friends of ours. We shot all day and I easily could have spent 3 more days with these two! We managed to laugh our way through all of the madness…from mosquito swarms to getting lost in the forest at night. Every moment was a blast with these guys! :D
Now, if you like forests and breathtaking vista views, keep scrolling… you’re in for a treat…

Enchanted Garden Wedding | Chicago Fairytale Wedding Photos | Vartan & Corina

Last month, I had the pleasure of flying to Chicago to photograph this beautiful wedding day.

Corina and Vartan were such a lovely couple to work with. Corina is not only stunningly gorgeous, but also one of the sweetest and most gracious souls I have had the pleasure of knowing. To top it all off… I pulled up to her childhood home the morning of the wedding and realized that if THIS is where she grew up…she is clearly a princess!!! It all suddenly made sense. She doesn’t just look and behave like a Disney princess…. she really IS one! Aha!

Rincon Beach Club Wedding Photos | Whimsical Carpinteria Wedding | Quinn & Holly

Quinn and Holly’s love story is almost too good to be true. English girl goes on vacation in California and falls in love with surf instructor. Sounds like a plot to the next box office hit, right?!

These two celebrated their nuptials in style on a gorgeous beach in Carpinteria, followed by a fun-filled reception at the Rincon Beach Club. This venue was such a cool little hidden gem and the perfect fit for this gorgeous and stylish couple!
