Hey, hey, it’s Friday! Anything fun planned this weekend? I had a great little one night getaway with some girlfriends at the new Line Hotel in Koreatown. It’s a really hip hotel and although the rooms have a slight prison look, the views can’t be beat. We ate at Commissary and it while the menu looked like a children’s coloring book, the food was delicious. I can’t wait to go back with Adam and eat at Pot! Hope you all have a lovely weekend. Here are a few fun finds I found this week…

Just in time for the weekend. A shoot I did recently with Ritual Wellness and the ladies of Beijos Events was featured on Inspired by This yesterday. Head over to drool over the gorgeous cocktails and then head to Ritual’s website and get some for yourself! Healthy cocktails, you can’t really beat that. {via IBT}

What’s your love language? Mine is Words of Affirmation and Adams is Quality Time. It’s such an interesting (and helpful) thing in a relationship to know what your partner wants and needs to feel loved. Have you read the book? I loved it! You can also just take the test here. {via cupcakes and cashmere}

This woman took lemons and turned them into the best lemonade ever. Read about her trip and make sure to watch the video. Wade from Sharkpig is THE most incredible cinematographer I know right now.{via 100 Layer Cake}

How many ways can you think of to make a pegboard look this awesome? {via decor8}

I know, I know, I’m SO late to this party but Adam and I just started watching the Game of Thrones series and I am hooked! I thought I would hate it, and while there is an obscene amount of blood and guts and inappropriate behavior…it is SO good. Do you watch it? We’re on Season Two so don’t spoil anything!

This is such a lovely idea. And really, who doesn’t love spaghetti and meatballs? {via serious eats}

Tiffany and Micah wanted to commemorate their fourth anniversary together with a portrait session and I was thrilled when she asked me to be the one to do it. I love that Tiffany brought along a super fun geronimo balloon, beautiful flower crown and bouquet. If you can’t tell, Tiffany’s favorite color is purple so she went all out with it and I think it all came together perfectly!

During their vacation from the cold weather of Canada, Karalyn and Tyler asked me to shoot their engagement session in LA. They wanted the Hollywood sign and the beach and so we did just that! I had such a wonderful afternoon with them. Karalyn and Tyler, I hope your destination wedding was everything you dreamed it would be. Thank for you letting me be a small part of this journey for you two.

Janellica and Paul were so beautiful to photograph. I love documenting this season in couples lives. The anticipation, the excitement, the nerves. But these two seemed not to have a care in the world. I’m so happy to say that they welcomed their baby girl into the world recently. Congrats you three! I hope to get you all in front of my camera again soon.

I just can’t get enough of the ladies from Beijos Events. I mean, they really know how to do it up. I’ve been so lucky to work with them on a lot of fun shoots recently and when they dreamed up this idea for a hippie beach styled wedding I jumped at the opportunity to photograph it, knowing it would be gorgeous. And, obviously I was right. With a team of top notch vendors and the perfect day at the beach, it all came to life.
