Ashley and Chad La Jolla Beach Wedding

I love my job. I get to do something that I am passionate about, and I get to capture and help create the story of what is usually one of the most important days of people lives. Seriously though, the best part is when I get to meet wonderful people, and create friendships. I have been excited for this day. Simply because I could not be happier for Ashley and Chad. Never were there a couple more deserving of each … Continue reading

Holly and Devyn Newport Beach Temple and Great Gatsby Rancho Los Lomas Wedding


  I have had the hardest time whittling this gorgeous wedding down into something that could fit into a blog post. There was so much beauty from the time the girls were getting ready, the beautiful brunch, the temple, the gorgeous details, and a fabulous reception. I have contemplated breaking this into multiple posts, and I just may have to. It took all that I had in me to get it down to the WAY too many photos I have … Continue reading

We did things a little differently with having a First Look a few weeks before the wedding. It was so nice to have this wonderful shoot without the stress and … Continue reading

Holly and Devyn Modern Vintage Newport Beach Engagement

Holly and Devyn are such a sweet couple. You meet them and their love is infectious. You can tell how much in love they are. Meeting at college at BYU it didn’t take long for them to realize how much they enjoyed each other and wanted to spend more and more time together. Not that you could blame them. Both of them are amazingly sweet and talented people and so much fun. My favorite part of their story? When Devyn … Continue reading

Hard Goodbyes


First please disregard any typos or weird paragraphing. I am writing this from my phone, late at night, and if I am being honest my eyes are a little swollen…   Ruthie Brothers Morris. But to me she was just grandma. I have known this amazing woman my entire life, and yet feel like I have learned the most about her in the little time before her passing. I guess it’s not so uncommon for a grandchild to know little … Continue reading

Register for Wedding Photography?

I don’t have the cool gun. Which is really the best part of doing a wedding registry. When else does someone give you the freedom to go to your favorite stores, carry a gun, and shoot the items you love and want other people to pay for. It’s genius. BUT, what about when you have a lot of the stuff that you normally would register for? Or will be living abroad or in a studio apartment and don’t have a … Continue reading

Spring Inspiration


I don’t know about where you are at, but here in my little neighborhood of Southern California, Mother Nature is confused. Like, for reals. A few weeks ago I had snow on my front lawn. Snow. In Southern California. No I do not live in the mountains, although I do live at the base of a mountain so my elevation is a little higher than most. But still. Then exactly a week later it was 85 degrees. Flowers started to … Continue reading
