Dana Point Wedding at Chart House Restaurant in Orange County | Kim and Jim

Last Fall, we had the privilege of taking Kim and Jim out to Shaw's Cove for their engagement session since that's where Jim proposed to Kim; right on the steps leading out to the beach. We couldn't be happier for them as their theme for their engagement session and wedding revolved around the beach, ocean and that sweet ocean breeze!

They held their wedding at Chart House Restaurant in Dana Point and couldn't have chosen a more beautiful location to have their wedding. The Chart House was perfect for their intimate, outdoor wedding ceremony and their secluded reception area provided for the best dinner setting for their friends and families. 

We're so excited for these two and make sure you give them your blessings in the comments below!

Il Garage Wedding in Orange County | Ioanna and Dimitri


We are so excited to start our wedding season for 2016 and we couldn't be happier to see Ioanna and Dimitri tie the knot this past weekend at Il Garage Ristorante in Orange County. Their wedding has been a long time coming and to see their friends and family celebrate with them made it that much special. 

There was so much love and happiness throughout the entire day, and Ioanna's smile was uncontainable. When we photographed their engagement session, we knew their wedding was going to be a beautiful and intimate celebration. 

Enjoy the highlights from their wedding and make sure to wish them many Congratulations!


I hope you enjoyed these as much as we did photographing them! If you, or you know a friend or two who is planning on getting married and you want us to meet them, feel free to share this post with them. Or simply fill out the form below and we'll be in contact with them.

We had the absolute honor of photographing Rochelle and Kyle's outdoor wedding at Falkner Winery in Temecula a few weeks ago. Their new marriage was signified by the young grape buds throughout the vineyard that were beginning to flower in the early spring. Rochelle looked stunning in her dress and the energy and effort to make sure the day was beautiful was evident by the handmade elements throughout the wedding. 

Rochelle's father wore his legendary top hat and gifted Kyle's father showing both families were in unison with pride and happiness to see them join together. Add in the live band, the Southern California winery views and it was a beautiful day to watch unfold. 

Congrats to Rochelle and Kyle and we can't thank you enough for letting us be a part of it. We truly enjoyed every minute of it. 



Mishanna & Chad in Carpinteria, CA | Wedding Photography

There's something about seeing the glow of a beautiful bride on her wedding day. It's a mixture of emotions that can only be explained by sharing the stories where you met your soon to be husband and how you knew he was the one with your closest girlfriends. Mishanna had a glow to her that could light a pitch black room.

Chad and Mishanna had been hoping the sun would peek through the clouds of Carpinteria for their special day. The sun was radiant and full of life, it was a perfect day for an outdoor wedding.

It was an amazing day and Chris and I are very thankful to have captured all the love and memories for such an awesome couple.






















Happy Thursday!!
