These two…It’s sessions like this that have me pinching myself saying “Is this really my job?” because it’s just too much fun. The genuine smiles, the love, the hugs and cuddles. I love it! I’ve known Jessica for years…so many years…and I’m thrilled to be photographing this time in their lives. I can’t wait for their wedding next May!
It was such a pleasure shooting Catherine and Doug’s Redondo Beach wedding! It was a wonderful summer day and they just beamed with happiness all day long. Thank you for letting me be a part of your beautiful day, you two!!
Happy Happy Friday!
I’m so excited to share this styled shoot I did with Beijos Events and BHLDN recently. It’s full of SO MUCH pretty!
What are your weekend plans? I have a few shoots and I’m going to finish up Gone Girl. You guys…I can’t put it down. And obviously Ben Affleck is narrating it in my mind and he’s driving me crazy! Are you reading it? Or have you already? It took me a bit to get into it and now halfway through all I want to do is get to the next page. What are you reading now?
Ikea just does things right. Some of their stuff may be cheap and make you want to pull out your hair while assembling it but these shelves are good.
It’s still so hot here, hey SoCal, it’s officially fall now. Step up your game please! These lavender honey iced lattes look amazing!
NPH and his longtime Partner are married!! I feel like a proud friend. SO happy for them!
I have this problem with saying no, turning things down. I apparently think I’m superwoman and can do everything. Take a look at my calendar for the next two months and you’ll see. This post about how to graciously say no needs to be in front of my face at all times.
I know it’s not even October yet but it’s time to start thinking about your holiday cards…gasp! I’m happy to say that Postable is using a few of my images for their holiday card display. Some of your cute families are over there! That being said, head over, and get some of their adorable cards! I love them!
If we’re friends on Facebook you saw that I
freaked out posted about the Catfe recently. It would literally be like my dreams all coming true. A cafe where you can just snuggle on cats. Sign me up!! Anyways, he needs money to make this happen. I’m trying not to just sign him a check with my entire savings on it.
For those of us who work from home, this is a nice article about how to incorporate your office into your living room because working from the couch doesn’t work allllll the time.
Speaking of, I recently read this article in Cosmo and it hit me. Working from home gets really lonely, having work dates with friends and going to a coffee shop every now and then is crucial to my sanity, and Adams.
Clever doormats, because they’re cute.
I’m a sucker for apple cider, once it starts to cool down I’m making this recipe.
Did you hear that Lady Grey announced a new venture, The Mrs. Box. I’m kinda dying about them…and by dying I mean holy moly I love! I need them all. Right this second.
Have you guys checked out the ice cream shop, Salt & Straw in LA yet? The flavors are currently making my mouth water!
Have a great weekend lovelies!!
Phil and Esther are quite possibly two of the kindest people you’ll ever meet. I knew that the minute I met them and during their engagement session. They just light up the space they’re in. Their wedding day was nothing short of special. Each and every detail from the day was thought out and special. So many talented friends sang personal songs and I couldn’t help but just beam with happiness the night after (and days after, let’s be honest) their wedding day. The topper from this day? Their wedding venue was literally minutes from my home! Win, win, WIN!!
The weather in Southern California right now is leaving me dreaming of a tropical vacation to somewhere, anywhere, where the temperature is below 90 degrees. Hawaii seems like a nice place to be…which leads me to this amazing bridal shower shoot inspired by the most popular fruit of the season, I’m looking at you pineapple, and the shores of Kauai. I’ve teamed up with the most talented ladies in the biz to share with you this fun, bright and tropical aloha inspired bridal shower.
So excited that this is featured on 100 Layer Cake today too!! Thanks ladies!
