Tulum Wedding Photography – Mia Beach Club Wedding

I fully understand the obsession with Tulum. It’s a magical, impressive, other wordly place. Our trip was brief, but we managed to swim in cenotes with turtles, jump in the ocean, visit ruins, and eat all. of. the food. We also managed to see these two wonderful humans get married.

Nabil and Susan are the kind of people that thought they wanted an intimate pop up ceremony, with just close family, followed by a larger party with friends. But. No wanted wanted to miss the ceremony so we shifted to one big party all day long. They tied the knot right on sand at Mia Beach Club and we taxied over to Chacabar for a perfect reception under the trees. I loved that they combined both beach and a little urban jungle in their day.

The part about destination weddings that makes for such magic is that you get to spend a few days with all your favorite people, not just a few hours. Adventures, relaxation, meals, drinks, dance parties, all shared for a weekend with the ones you love who put a little pause on their life back home and hop over to Mexico with you. Somehow getting a glimpse of how big the world is can make a celebration of marriage and life even more intimate.

Nabil and Susan thank you for inviting us along on your adventure! You both are amazing humans and I’m honored to have captured just a little of your magic through this day!

Old Town Temecula Engagement Photographers + Mt Palomar Winery Wedding Photography

These cuties trekked through 3+ hours of traffic to meet me out in Temecula, and somehow still arrived smiling and happy. We suggested we hop through Old Town before heading over to their venue because I love having two totally different backdrops for engagement sessions. I always suggest two outfits for engagement pictures, and I love having a more urban setting too, to give a bit more diversity to your images! I consider engagement pictures such a treat, so I like to take full advantage!

But seriously, with all the stress of wedding planning- getting pulled in so many different directions – either from family and friends, or even just trying to nail down your vibe for the event! Engagement pictures are a time where you get to just. focus. on your fiance. Sounds so simple, but it’s a luxury in madness of all the planning!  So, we take it slow, hit a few nearby locations, and even grab a glass of wine where we can.

These two are getting married at Mt Palomar winery, and wanted to explore the venue and have their engagement pictures there before the big day. So much fun adventuring around Temecula with you two! Congrats you guys!

Alta Vista Country Club Wedding. Rachel + Eric. Fullerton Wedding Photographers

I loved this wedding. A perfect summer party, a endlessly kind and considerate bride and groom, welcoming families, perfect dance party and beautiful backdrop. Alta Vista Country Club has an almost secret garden vibe. The ceremony site is set off to the side, with tall lush trees that give that perfect shade, even in the height of summer. The golf course is spread out, and there are so many beautiful locations to shoot! Thankful to have such kind clients, and such beautiful places to make some magic! Congrats you two!!

First look with dad! Alllllways a special moment!! 

LA aventure Engagement Session – Los Angeles Wedding + Engagement Photography

Edith and John made this session a breeze. They stopped by Urth Cafe on their commute home from work, we trekked through the Arts District together and then somehow made it over to the Observatory all before the sun went down. They embraced a little wind, a chilly afternoon, and an unexpected uber ride to the top of the mountain when the observatory’s parking lot was inexplicably closed off. As wedding photographers, we’re well accustomed to rolling with the punches and “make it work” is our slogan. I feel so lucky to have clients that also embrace adventures, speed bumps, and uber rides with ease. Thanks you two for being so kind and so FUN! Capturing your love and adventurous spirit was a pleasure!

Riverside Family Pictures. Sunny Winter Family Portraits Riverside CA

We chased the last little bit of light ands battled maybe the first chilly wind of Fall for these pictures, and it was so SO worth it. Let’s be real, that chilly wind probably brought it down to 60 degrees, but hey, it was sudden and we were underprepared! I love how that warm California sunset was showing off for us though, these hills were the perfect backdrop for this beautiful family!

I’m so lucky to have an excuse to see so many old friends around the holiday season so we can capture some updated family photos – Brooke coordinated my wedding and I literally would not have made it through that day without her! She now has THE cutest etsy shop The Painted Birch.
