Dana Point Engagement - Mariel + Cotee

Mariel & Cotee are both musicians that moved their lives to San Deigo 4 years ago together and are adorable AF!

Talk about two people who are perfect for each other. There wasn’t any nervousness nor awkward moments here, from the get go, they were absolutely awesome!

Here’s some highlights from their engagement session in Dana Point!

Padua Hills Theatre Wedding - Verenice + Jaime

I’ve said it so many times before but it’s worth saying again. My favorite part of my job is not only photographing a couple’s big day but getting to know them.

Verenice & Jaime are “my people”. From the first meeting we had, I knew that we were a great fit and I’m so thankful they felt the same. They are such rad human beings and it really was an honor being their personal historian on their wedding day.

Here’s some highlights from their wedding day.

Laguna Beach Elopement - Amber + Sam

Amber and Sam were originally supposed to get married in Italy but decided to switch it up last minute because, well, life happens sometimes, and they ended up having a small ceremony in Laguna Beach.

Big weddings are cool, but there’s something really cool about capturing small events like this one. The intimate nature of it really allows the newlyweds to just enjoy each other and that’s exactly what Amber and Sam did.

Here’s some highlights from the day.

Vasquez Rocks Engagement - Sarah + Christian

Photographing couples at Vasquez Rocks never gets old, especially when you get to capture couples like Sarah & Christian.

It really didn’t feel like I was shooting strangers, it felt more like I was just hanging out with a couple of my friends and I just so happened to have a camera in my hands. There were no butterflies or awkward moments, they were straight fire the whole time and I think it shows in their photos.

We had such a blast and pretty much laughed the whole way through. I love sessions like this one!

Here’s some of what we captured!

Laguna Victoria Beach Engagement - Kelley + Brennan

Woke up at the butt crack of dawn to photography Kelly & Brennan at Victoria Beach in Laguna.

Victoria Beach is one of the most photographed and also visited beaches in southern California but since we woke up so early, we pretty much had the beach to our own. Even though we all woke up super early, Kelly & Brennan didn’t let them stop that from lovin’ up on each other the whole morning.

Here’s some of what we captured.
