shannon + lee {big sur forest, river & beach elopement}September 5, 2014

I am so excited to share this Big Sur elopement with you! Shannon + Lee are both originally from Hawaii but knew they wanted to tie the knot in Big Sur. After the contacted me, we found out we only lived a couple miles apart in LA and it was so much fun getting to meet them before their big day! One of the benefits of having an elopement is that you can plan the entire day to be solely about what what the two of you want. This sweet couple got ready in the Big Sur forest, was wed by the Big Sur River and then we headed to the beach for more photos. My favorite Central Coast officiant Brian did a beautiful job with the ceremony and Kate of  Big Sur Flowers created a gorgeous crown and bouquet for Shannon, as well as a boutonniere for Lee! The lovely Rhonda of Bridal Makeup and Hair did a beautiful job (as always!) on Shannon’s hair and makeup!

Next month, Shannon + Lee are celebrating their marriage with all of their family and friends in Oahu and I will be there to capture it all for them! I feel pretty lucky to have such an amazing couple bring me first to Big Sur to document their love and next Hawaii to celebrate their union with the people they love the most! Congratulations to my sweet newlyweds!

dakota {film photo session in malibu}August 28, 2014

In the midst of a crazy wedding season, nothing is more fun for me than to slow down and create something new. I asked my gorgeous friend/past bride Dakota if she wanted to spend an afternoon playing dress up. My friend Jeannie (who also happens to be a past bride!) is a super talented makeup artist (http://www.happymakeupgirl.com/)  and she transformed Dakota for our shoot. Ladies- Jeannie is also a master at lash extension so contact her for all of your lash needs!

I have been expiermenting more with film and all of the color images below were shot on my Contax 645, scanned by theFINDlab.

sara + taylor {pine rose cabins lake arrowhead forest wedding}August 4, 2014

Sara + Taylor’s Lake Arrowhead wedding was so much fun to photograph! They created a laid back forest wedding to celebrate the love they have for each other and for their family and friends. Their wedding took place at Pine Rose Cabins and they did a great job of mixing the natural elements with fun DIY projects and beautiful colorful flowers at the reception. One of my favorite details was the fox cake topper, so cute! I truly loved being a part of this perfect day and am so happy for the sweet newlyweds!
