Allison & Arshad | Engagement

Nothing makes me happier than spending my free time in the outdoors seeking adventure, so when my couples share that same passion, it makes for some really good times (and also beautiful photos). Allison and Arshad traveled to the beautiful Eastern Sierras for their engagement photos and they surely did not disappoint. Shot by the talented Daniel Han at Snapmotive, these photos are what dreams are made of, and I am so excited to share them with you today!

These two lovebirds tie the knot in a few months at the beautiful Hummingbird Nest Ranch, so we definitely have a lot to look forward to!

Angela & Michael | Casa Del Mar, Santa Monica

This next wedding to be featured on the blog was the dreamiest (and sweetest) from beginning to end! Taking place in Santa Monica, California, Casa Del Mar served as the perfect backdrop for a romantic seaside wedding for Angela and Michael, and every corner of the hotel and the surrounding beach was just so beautiful and picture perfect. The wedding details were simple and elegant, featuring lush floral arrangements, the prettiest bridesmaids dresses, and a live band during the reception who kept the crowd dancing all night long. The best part of it all? An In-N-Out truck at the end of the night to top everything off!

Angela and Michael are some of the sweetest people I had the pleasure of working with and I am excited to be able to share these beautiful photos shot by the talented James Hong of Per Pixel Photo, enjoy!

Everly Events | Golden Age Inspired Styled Shoot

Next up on the blog is a personal favorite of mine, a dramatic styled shoot that was put together along with an amazing team of vendors last year. This dramatic, lush, and romantic styled shoot is inspired by the still life paintings of the Dutch Golden Age. I was so inspired by the beautiful oil paintings that came out of this era and we wanted to re-create that mood by bringing in a dark, shadowy background that would make everything stand out alone. By keeping the tablescape and decor simple (to really let the backdrop speak for itself), I hoped to create the perfect palette for any autumn or winter bride who loves to bring on the drama and boldness to their designs!

A huge thank you to my amazing team of vendors:
