There’s not much I love more than a proposal. When Kyle reached out to me to photograph this special moment I was so amped. I just love Courtney and knew how special it was to her to have this captured. Kyle had planned the perfect proposal and then the day before we realized there was an 80% chance of rain and since we were scared to chance it he texted me and said, “so, are you available tonight?” and with that, this magical night was made.

Photographing proposals are crazy nerve wracking. I had to hide out so Courtney wouldn’t see me, because if she did the whole thing would be ruined. Adam was my lookout and as soon as they got to their spot, he said “okay, go” and I turned around and started shooting like crazy. In the end, it’s one of my favorite things because you just cannot re enact these moments and personally I remember the entire thing being a total blur so having photos to look back on is so wonderful. Courtney and Kyle, I am SO excited for you two! xoxo

There’s just something about an intimate backyard wedding. Surrounded by your nearest and dearest, so much love and string lights. Always beautiful, beautiful string lights. Tiffany and Michael transformed their backyard into the most beautiful space for their wedding and I couldn’t be happier that I was there to capture it all. Congratulations again, you two. Thank you for letting me be there!

I’ve been photographing this sweet family for a couple of years now, since Maria was pregnant with that sweet little boy, and I just love them. Just try not to smile looking at these images of this happy little family. I’m already looking forward to seeing them again in the fall!

Did you happen to see Taryn’s amazing baby shower featured on 100 Layer Cakelet recently? It was one for the books and I’ll be sharing it on here soon but in the meantime, Taryn is expecting a little lady and I had the honor of photographing her maternity session last month. Taryn is the mastermind behind Twinkle and Toast and is the most amazing calligrapher. She did our wedding invitations and they were so gorgeous. We shot her session in this gorgeous cactus garden in San Diego and I’m pretty into it. Taryn, you’re the most beautiful mama to be. I’m so thrilled for you and Justin!
