Joe and Michelle La Jolla Engagement

Last weekend I ventured down to La Jolla to photograph Joe and Michelle’s engagement session. We started out on this gorgeous bluff over looking the ocean and then down to the rocky beach for sunset. They were so willing to do what ever it took to get the shot - even it meant precariously standing on the edge of a cliff because it would be epic. Check out these highlights!

Jesse & Kim Encinitas Engagement

I had a blast shooting Jesse and Kim’s engagement session in Encinitas last week, especially with their four dogs that I immediately fell in love with. I’m a sucker for dog kisses… But I digress. Kim and Jesse are a great couple and so easy to work with. It’s easy to see, just check out these highlights! I can’t wait for the wedding!

Emily and Austin Dana Point Engagement

Recently Emily, Austin and I went down to the Dana Point harbor for their engagement photos. They have a passionate connection to the ocean. Emily even volunteers at the Ocean Institute where they will have their wedding next year. And of course it will be ocean themed. I'm pretty dang excited about their upcoming wedding which will have open exhibits at the Ocean Institute including touch tanks and the like.

But this day was a perfect day for a walk on the beach. Check out these highlights!

Monique & David Surprise Wedding - Newport Beach

Well, I had a first recently...a surprise wedding. When Monique called me for the first time inquiring about wedding photography she told me it was a surprise wedding. I had to have her explain that one to me... The plan, she explained, was to invite their closest family and friends to the Newport Dunes for an engagement party. The twist was that in the middle of the party they would surprise the would-be wedding party with the news that they would be getting married that night. What a unique idea - I was hooked from the beginning. Here's some highlights...

Jason & Heather - Portofino Redondo Beach Wedding

I loved this Redondo Beach Wedding. Jason and Heather are married and what a wedding it was! I had the privilege of photographing Heather's sister's wedding (you can find that here: and now it was Heather's big day at thePortofino Hotel and Marinain Redondo Beach, California. It was a perfect day weather wise for a wedding ceremony right on the water's edge. They're such a great couple and a great family. But alas, the last daughter has been married so, unfortunately for me, no more wedding photography for them.

Here's some highlights from their wedding. Enjoy!

Jason & Heather Engagement Proposal

Perhaps the thing I love about my job the most is participating in other people's intimate moments; being an integral part. It's something I don't take for granted. Jason's surprise beach proposal to Heather was no exception. When he called me and asked me to capture this special event I was honored. I photographed Heather's sister's wedding so I was even more excited about this.

Check out the highlights!
