We love the genuine peace that surrounds Ojai, a rustic farm town full of orchards, with mountains and hot springs where people come to escape the city for a weekend. Tessa and Andy threw a gorgeous diy wedding with around 75 people at a private residence for the weekend. Their families and friends traveled from all over the world to be a part of their celebration – an afternoon ceremony followed by a sunset dinner party and dancing into the dark, star-filled night. We are so grateful to have been there to capture the love between these two and their lovely family and friends. Congratulations Tessa and Andy!!!
Elyse + Lewis’s Winter wedding at LA’s Huron Substation was the best kind of glamorous: classy yet fun and carefree at the same time. They were a dream to photograph – just emanating pure love and excitement all day and night long! You can read about it in their own words over on A Practical Wedding.
Man, I am sure we have said it before, and we will say it so many more times, but our clients just radiate joy, love and beauty from the inside on out. M’daya and Shawn created such a stunning celebration for their summer wedding in San Diego’s Encinitas Botanical Garden. You can read all about it today on Snippet + Ink. Thank you guys for letting us help tell your story and a million congratulations!
Ronda and Bryan have been longtime dear friends of mine and I was deeply honored to be asked to photograph their wedding. We share a killer community of friends of which they are the core. Tons of creativity in these folks, and lots of heart. The wedding was a weekend long lovefest complete with an afterparty where a multitude of musician friends played late into the night. One of the most moving moments was Ronda and Bryan’s duet of Kiss’s “I was made for loving you”. I still get a little teary thinking about it! Head on over to A Practical Wedding to hear more about their day in their own words!
You guys! Jordan planned the sweetest proposal to his girlfriend Davia. All day he pampered her with special activities, building the anticipation up up up until she got home from a massage with a note to meet him (dressed for dinner, of course) at sunset at a special Del Mar beach spot near their home. AND he asked us to be on hand to capture the moment! So great! She was so absorbed in the moment, she didn’t even notice we were there taking photos, even once we gave up trying to be inconspicuous because the initial “moment” was over. It was all so romantic. We did a quick portrait session after, OF COURSE! before they drove up to laguna beach to finish off the weekend. How about that rainbow? Meant to be, right?
Speaking of San Diego, this is a good time to mention we are having specials for San Diego weddings. Get in touch for details!
Happy New Year, love birds!!!!! Hope you have some magic in your life soon. xoxo
