rachel + pj {el cielo estate palm springs garden wedding}November 5, 2014

I’ve been friends with Rachel + PJ for a few years and was so honored and excited when they asked me to photograph their Palm Springs wedding at the El Cielo Estate! Rachel is a talented creative director and runs the blog One Part Gypsy so I knew their wedding was going to be amazing! The El Cielo Estate created an intimate garden feel and Rachel did an incredible job designing all of the details. They worked with my friend Erica of Twine Events who beautifully coordinated the day and another friend JP Mcleod did an amazing job as DJ for the evening festivities.  One of my favorite parts of the day was the very last song when JP played “Forever Young” (the Jay Z version) which was the theme of the day and everyone danced and sang their hearts out as the celebration of Rachel + PJ came to a beautiful end. Thank you to Laura Goldenberger for shooting this one with me and a huge thank you to Rachel + PJ for trusting me with such an important day, I love you guys!

A huge thank you to 100 Layer Cake for sharing this beautiful wedding on their blog! You can view the full post here.

michelle + chris {frederick loewe estate palm springs wedding}October 24, 2014

Michelle + Chris work and live outside the country but they knew they wanted to have their wedding in sunny Palm Springs and they knew they wanted it to be FUN. They chose a gorgeous venue called the Frederick Loewe Estate in Palm Springs and the day was so beautiful! I loved all of the unique elements they incorporated to make the day their own and I was blown away by the the lion dance at the reception, so cool! One of my favorite moments of the day is when Michelle + Chris agreed to sneak away with us for a few portraits after the ceremony. Even if couples do a first look, I always encourage them to take a few portraits after the ceremony when they are officially married! Lucky for us there was a perfect spot near the venue!

It always makes me happy to see a couple truly enjoy their wedding day and Chris and Michelle were one of my most fun couples ever! The wedding was coordinated by Sterling Engagements and the flowers and decor were created by Shawna Yamamoto.

sasha + bobby {sonoma garden wedding}October 23, 2014

As this year begins to slow down and my wedding season comes to a close, I am going to have more time for blogging so get ready for lots of pretty weddings over the next few months! Sasha + Bobby got married in beautiful Sonoma earlier this year and it was extra special because I got to shoot it with the talented McKenzie Miller Films. Not only is she an amazing videographer but she happens to be my best friend! You can watch her video from the day here.

I loved being a part of such a gorgeous day and these two made it extra special! Their wedding was a reflection of her Russian background and his Southern upbringing and the reception included treats from both cultures including fried chicken and homemade cranberry vodka shots! Sasha + Bobby created a gorgeous day to celebrate with their family and friends and I was honored to be a part of it!
