Wiens Family Cellars Wedding. Christine + Michael. Temecula Wedding Photography

These two met at a club in Vegas. Seriously. I love hearing all the stories of how my couples find each other, but this one… this one is up there. They met at a club, did a little long distance thing, then moved around the country together as they finished up school and finally got married in Temecula with a pretty fantastic celebration. Life is kinda crazy sometimes.

Such a gorgeous wedding at Wiens Family Cellars, as these two shared a few tears along with their vows in front of a stunning backdrop of vineyards. Classic white flowers, a nothing bundt cake, and then the groom surprised the bride with horse drawn carriage instead of an uber for their final exit for the night. Seriously, so SO good. Thanks for being simply beautiful you two!!

the. cutest.

Pasadena Family Portrait Photographer

I love photographing families, and I especially love when I get to capture everyone. Three generations of smiles and laughs and hugs and maybe even a few grumpy faces scattered throughout – let’s be real. Sometimes families are spread over different states, so getting them all together at once it’s pretty special. Extended Family Photo sessions lets everyone knock out their family photos at once too!

The first few days as a new family are some of my favorite to document. The whirlwind of a new life breaking into existence, an only child becoming a big brother, a family of three suddenly becoming a family of four. With so many changes happening so quickly, I love getting to capture the quieter, more subtle moments.

I love these images because they feel so relaxed and effortless. I know that having a new baby generally isn’t either of those things, but these new parents make it look so easy. We rolled with however baby Liam was feeling- took lots of snack breaks, stopped for some cuddles, snuggles, and a changing, and he was such a perfect little trooper for all his portraits!

I keep staring at this cursor blinking like I’ve got a paper to write. I’ve been meaning to/working on/rough drafting – through this blog post for a few weeks now. But we’ll start here fresh. It’s definitely high time in the wedding world, June’s busy shooting season now turned into a July behind my desk and somehow it’s August. Blogging gets shifted to the back burner because brides are waiting, patiently, to relive their best days through pictures, my pictures, and that’s really a big deal.

And honestly creating the word side of blogs is hard. While once I was a “writer” – I mean, a person who occasionally would write… and didn’t hate writing papers in college, writing now for this purpose is a challenge. Inspiration- I tend to get that out through pictures these days. And speaking of people who write – Laura writes for a living. There’s an extra pinch of pressure on this one.

I think I stumble upon some writer’s block as I have been shooting weddings for 8 years now and it’s hard to create a new sentence to describe “these people are magical, and they love each other so much and that’s magical, and dang it life is rad” because I’m thankful that that is how weddings make me feel and I could probably write that sentence for every wedding I shoot.

But. Laura and Ian. Dang it their love is magical. These two could make eye contact with each other and I’d feel it in my stomach. I relished seeing Laura at her groom, and look out at her friends and family – it just felt like she was trying to capture every moment, every feeling, to hold on to for forever. The smiles out of these two, the stories from friends and family, the shoulder rubs, the winks, the high fives, the genuine warmth; I wish I had much better words to describe it. But I guess that’s why I’m the camera lady, not the wordsmith.

Laura and Ian, I can’t thank you enough for your authenticity, your thoughtfulness, trust and kindness. Your love makes my heart swell. Cheers to the best lifetime together!!

just the best.
