You’re engaged and wedding planning is in full swing — hooray!  Your Pinterest feed is a constant source of inspiration, and you can’t help but pin, pin, pin as you scroll through the stunning photos.  A wedding dress framed by the perfect blush wall, a carefully styled invitation suite, a bride and her bridesmaids giggling as they fluff each layer of tulle.  With a little careful planning and my six tips, your getting ready photos will be just as Pinteresting!

3 Reasons Why I'm A Wedding Photographer

3 Reasons Why I'm A Wedding Photographer

Over the years, I’ve had a lot of people ask how I became a photographer. So I thought I would share with you a little bit about the why and the heart behind my business.

I know it may sound cliche but I always have been fascinated with photography. There was a day in particular that I remember, while my brother and sister played volleyball in the backyard, there I was, with my disposable camera photographing insects, birds and my dog. It’s so funny because I recently stumbled on a box of old photos and found those pictures buried. And now 23 years later, here I am camera-in-hand, only this time with a better camera and photographing people now!

2016 Year in Review

As the year comes to an end, I can't help but reflect on how grateful I am for each and every couple and their families who welcome us happily to their wedding day. 

It's been a year of growth as I moved into an office in Tustin with a wedding coordinator (I'll share some images soon!) I couldn't be more thrilled and full of joy to have a "job" I love!

Where do I even begin this beautiful wedding? Krista and Jimmy are two of the sweetest, caring and genuine people you will ever meet. The day was surrounded with friends and family from all over to celebrate this momentous day. 

Why Our Wedding Was Amazing Without Pinterest

Why Our Wedding Was Amazing Without Pinterest

We were married almost five years ago and that was before pinterest. And you want to know a secret? It was still absolutely amazing without it. With the help of family, friends and some inspirational wedding blogs, we were able to plan our wedding on a budget that was perfectly unique to us.
