Andrea and Rory – San Luis Obispo | Montana de Oro

I have such a soft spot for Andrea and Rory. We had planned our first meeting and dinner to discuss the engagement shoot and get to know each other a bit more. I arrived and quickly noticed that – duh – it was extremely crowded due to the blue men group showing and the cute little old fashioned ice skating rink. BTW, this was a few weeks before christmas. And so . . . the restaurants were all full. So we managed to get in at a lovely “diner” – the kind that serves tapioca with dinner. : ) For the record – I love tapioca. Anyway, dinner comprised of a good ole bowl of soup and for me a grilled cheese sandwich. Yes, white bread and american cheese. Yum. Well . . . my sandwich came and the cheese was not melted. : ( Rory – quickly said – you should send that back. Gosh darn it, yes I should and I did and they were very nice and melted it more and it came back wonderfully melted and I had a great comforting meal. – (total run on sentence – sorry)  Anyway, Thanks Rory for speaking up. Good (comfort food), great conversation – amazingly wonderful couple. I loved planning your shoot, scouting it with the family and most importantly – spending the day creating beautiful memories with you two. Thanks for including us in your lives.

Megan and Patrick | Crystal Cove styled Engagement

We love Megan and Patrick! And their super cute love story!  Baseball buds through college until one day . . . . curveball. Okay, so if I knew more about Baseball – I would probably go on with the theme. But alas, I don’t. So . . . . let’s just say I’m all witty and such for the last comment and oh – maybe I know another one. Patrick made a sweet catch.

 

Ana and Landon | Laguna Civic Center

Okay . . . so these two are real people. They are not models . . . and they really did get married last week!  It was such a beautiful day and their family came to enjoy their intimate ceremony at the civic center. Ana was just so stunning in her charcoal – purple dress. I know, I know . . . beautiful girl. Landon you are so lucky! And he knows it. Just look at that grin. Super cute couple in Love. Super beautiful day. Big sigh! = photographers heaven. Thank you Ana and Landon – Bella and I really enjoyed being a part of your ceremony day!!!!!!

 

Sarah and Jeremy | Newport Beach

This was a spectacular day of shooting! Sarah and I got together to do a soft and intimate boudoir shoot as a gift for Jeremy. We shot all the images in her bedroom with the help of my assistant Bella and Sarah’s best friend. And, they turned out amazing!!!! Sarah is beyond stunning. I wish I could share them – but these are for Jeremy’s eyes only. : ). I was able to gather some detail shots of her wedding table set up and jewelry before hand which was so fun for me!  I love details. As you may have gathered . . .  and Sarah had some lovelies and a spectacular chandelier to play with too! And then, after Sarah and Jeremy were all dressed up,  we headed on over to a park for their glorious “day after” wedding images. Sarah and Jeremy are so beautiful together!!!!!  Thank you for letting me capture your “storybook” love.
