Cooper Family {Vow Renewal Photography, Newport Beach}

I was contacted by the fabulous Janine who was planning her parent’s surprise vow renewal in Newport Beach.

Mom and Dad flew in from the east cost, Janine flew in from the middle of the country and the rest of the family was

fortunate enough to drive up from just south of Orange County.

Dad didn’t seem like such a happy camper to be dressed in a suit for family pictures on the beach, but he was a trooper

and hung tight with me and the family while the gentle waves rushed over his toes.

The game plan was to photograph the family as a whole under the Newport Pier. Check.

Next I was to steal away Mom and Dad to another spot, while everyone else quickly set up an aisle for the ceremony. (Which

by the way, Janine herself performed!)

Dad was NOT thrilled with me leading them through the mass amount of people on the beach, to a spot that I declared

to be the best spot on the whole beach for some portraits! He looked at me side eyed, and humored me for as long as

he could. Check.

As we walked back to our spot under the pier, Mom and Dad slowly took in the aisle, the small altar, the wedding

bouquet, the boutonniere and vows that were handed to them.

It was so wonderful to see such love surrounding Mom and Dad! Even people walking by

stopped and watched the ceremony. I was honored to capture such a wonderful surprise!

Love at El Matador Beach {Los Angeles Engagement Photographer}

We all met up on a blustery afternoon at El Matador-my absolute favorite beach-for N and M’s engagement session.

Once we got used to the wind whipping around are faces, we had a blast shooting.

What’s a little sand in your face when you have such an awesome couple?!?

And oh my goodness, LOOK AT HER DRESS!!! I want it. I wanted it then, and I told her I might just have to rip it off her

and run away with it…although I didn’t, but I wanted to.

Kristin & Sara Get Married {Los Angeles Wedding Photographer}

I met Kristin and Sara at a coffee shop for a wedding consult, and I instantly felt their love for each other.

They were so excited to plan their wedding, and I just knew I wanted to be part of such a momentous occasion.

Only in the past few years have same-sex couples in California been legally able to solidify their relationship by getting married.

Kristin and Sara are a beautiful testament to what true love is….

They got married in my hometown of La Canada, CA, at the Thursday Club. A beautiful venue that lent itself perfectly to such a perfect wedding.

And thanks to wonderful Rachel, who allowed us in to Descanso Gardens for the most amazing wedding portraits ever.

Descanso Gardens has such a special place in my heart, I grew up going there almost every Sunday as a child. It was blossomed (ha! no pun intended!) into the most beautiful place I’ve seen in years.

Thank you Kristin and Sara, for allowing me to be a part of, and to capture such an important milestone in your lives!

I am truly honored!

My Cousin’s Wedding {Los Angeles Wedding Photographer}

My “little” cousin got married!

I call him my little cousin, although he’s only a couple of years younger than I am, and I don’t think he’s ever actually been shorter!

He and his new wife asked me to photograph their wedding, and I was absolutely thrilled!

Despite having a broken leg, nothing was stopping me from shooting his wedding!

(I fell down a month earlier and broke my leg, had surgery the next day and am now walking around like Bionic Woman with a plate and 7 screws holding it all together)

I rented a knee scooter, yes, these exist! And have been more mobile, and working, than I would have been ever with crutches!

I love intimate weddings, and generally when I photograph my client’s backyard weddings, it makes me feel like part of the family. This time, it was my family and we had such a great time.

The backyard was beautiful at my Aunt and Uncle’s house, everything was in bloom and we had the most perfect warm spring night.

Thank you Frankie and Cecilia, it was truly an honor to capture your wedding!
