Maravilla Gardens Wedding 
Tera + Logan

Allison and James' engagement session back in November was too much fun! I had been to Brookview Ranch many times for weddings however this was the first time I was there for an engagement session and I have to admit.. it was fantastic! We had the whole venue all to ourselves and got to freely explore and frolic throughout the space. Everywhere you turn at Brookview the nature is gorgeous and the landscape is perfectly kept. Allison and James were so much fun to work with and naturals in front of the camera, which really shows in their photos! Their loved shined through in every shot, as well as Allison's stunning engagement ring! If their engagement session was any indicator of how their wedding day in September will be, amazing things are in store! I can't wait to see them tie the knot at the beautiful Sherwood Country Club!



Goleta Engagement
Jennifer + Matt

In September I had the pleasure of photographing Jennifer and Matt's engagement session in Goleta. They both met while attending ASU and are college sweethearts who traveled to SoCal from Arizona for their engagements! I feel so honored to have been chosen by them to capture their day! We had planned on taking their engagement photos at Knapps Castle but unfortunately we were not allowed to take them there. As the sun was setting and the light was fading we scrambled to Ellwood Beach in Goleta to capture their photos.

Franciscan Gardens Wedding
Gina + Kurt

Gina and Kurt had a fairy tale wedding last month at the beautiful Franciscan Gardens in Orange County. The day was full of beautiful details, a dreamy first look at the picturesque Mission San Juan Capistrano, and laughter and fun among their guests. Her day consisted of an all-star vendor team including Seven Stems for florals and coordination, Cherished Rentals for tablescape, and Kitty Chen Couture from Mary Me Bridal.
