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!

Ryan and Mel Washington State Wedding

Ryan and Mel's Washington State wedding.

I was so excited that Mel and Ryan asked me to travel to Washington State for their wedding! A wedding in the forest is right up my alley! But what I loved the most was Ryan and Mel. Ryan and I go way back but it was the first time I was able to meet Mel and it was easy to see why they made just a great couple. These two are everything I could ask for in a couple. They are so down to Earth, loving, playful and fun beyond belief! But really, it was all about family and friends getting together and having a good time.

Check out these highlights!

I recently met Brad and Maryann at the Huntington Beach Pier for their engagement photos.

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!

Matt and Kelly are married! What a great country style wedding in the foothills of Mt. Baldy and the San Gabriel Mountains. The Sweet Pea Ranch is a great little outdoor venue for a wedding. Kelly and I used to work together as EMT's so it was extra special to be a part of their big day. Check out the highlights of their Sweet Pea Ranch wedding. Enjoy!

It was quite a nice change considering our extreme drought. Here they are at Laguna Coast Wilderness Park.
