California Destination Weddings

Liz + Ryan // Triunfo Creek Vineyards Wedding // Malibu, CA

I am so excited to finally share these photos with you! It has been a crazy busy summer and we have worked with so many amazing people, I am so glad I can start off by sharing this one!

Liz and Ryan met through an youth missionary discipleship organization, better known as YWAM or Youth with a Mission in a small village, Herrnhut (HERN-hoot) in Eastern Germany. They have been able to travel the world together and share the good new of Jesus Christ. I was so ecstatic when my old buddy Ryan called me up out of the blue (we did our YWAM DTS together in that same German Village) I had never met Liz but I had seen photos over her and OHMYGOSH, I was so ready to shoot this GEORGEOUS couples wedding.

It was such an easy going, intimate wedding with out a typical bridal party, instead the guests were to wear flower crowns and boutonnieres and join part as the wedding party. One of my closest friends and fellow Canadian photographer, Chance Faulker Photography served as he officiant of the wedding.

Honestly, I couldn't ask for a more perfect day!

Julianne + Ralph || Old Town Temecula + Monte De Oro Winery Engagement Shoot

I mentioned before this is going to be the year of weddings for me, not only do I have some awesome weddings coming up to shoot, but both of my cousins are getting married and I have the privilege of being Maid of Honor to both!  A few weeks ago I got to wander around Old Town Temecula and take my cousin Julianne and her finance Ralph's engagement photos. We also stopped off at Monte De Oro Winery where they will be having their wedding in November. It was a lot of fun shooting with Julianne again, she was my muse in college, haha we lived together and she was down to model for whatever harebrained I came up with. We had so much fun doing random photoshoots during my Brooks days that this was just icing on the cake! I am very excited with the photos from this shoot! What a beautiful day it was! Enjoy!  


Cassie || Kit Carson Park || Class of 2014

I had a lovely day shooting with Cassie at Kit Carson Park in Escondido earlier this month. Her natural beauty was so captivating, she reminds me of the 90's singer Jewel. Cassie will be graduating from the Fusion Academy in June and will be going on to college to pursue her acting career, Im sure its just a matter of time before we see her on the big screen!


Taylor + Aaron || New Years Eve Wedding || La Jolla, Ca


 I am excited to show a few images from Taylor + Aaron's NYE 2013 Wedding. What a great way to bring in the new year. I usually spend it sitting on my couch watching movies and stuffing my face with food. I had a great time being able to spend the day photographing their moments!
