Idyllwild Wedding – Brittany & Jordan

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again! I love a backyard wedding! They are so laid back and fun. Had a great time with Brittany and Jordan. All of their beautiful details were hand made by the bride herself! Including these centerpieces. Very impressive!



Mama made these beautiful desserts.



At first I thought these were additional place cards. Stay in school everybody. 🙂



The bride wore this gorgeous dress well.



The first look is always make my heart go pitter-patter.



This ceremony was very heartfelt and emotional.



Paper vows and  phone vows. Both beautifully written.



Happy Mr. & Mrs.



Thanks for letting me be part of your day Brittany and Jordan! Congratulations!

Engagement Session – Lucy & Jae

One to the things that is so great about being a photographer is you get to visit new places all the time. This time I got to go to the Korean Friendship Bell with Lucy and Jae. It’s so beautiful there! A bit windy though! 🙂

Lucy and Jae are so adorable. They were really good sports about all the wind.

The wind wasn’t all bad. 🙂


Congratulations you two! See you in a couple of weeks!  ♥

Wedding Photographer – Aleksey & Mariam

It’s so nice when you can have a really good time during your work day. And thanks to Aleksey and Mariam,the cutest couple, I did!

They are so in love and so adorable. Their special day was full of family, friends and fun. I was honored to be a small part of it.

Loved all the stained glass windows at the United Armenian Congregational Church! So beautiful! Wait until you see the bride in their light.


There’s that light.



The reception at Brand Park  was beautifully planned and decorated by Flower and Sugar Events.



I love how these two look at each other. It’s so romantic.



Flower girl making the formals a little more colorful.



Let the dancing begin!



Congratulations Mariam & Aleksey!

So Cal Portrait Photographer – Teresa Raef

Recently had a really fun morning hanging out and shooting Teresa Raef . This singer/songwriter just launched her new website and it was my pleasure to shoot some portraits of her for it. Enjoy! 🙂



Proper rocker chick. 🙂


She has plenty of her own but here’s some flare for ya.


Those eyes!


“No Barking” best sign modification ever. 😀



Got to hear some cool music while shooting.



Be sure to check out some good soulful music on Teresa’s site!
