CRISTINA + AUSTIN
Cristina and Austin celebrated their one year Anniversary with a sweet Newport beach photoshoot! They've been dating for one year and wanted to celebrate with a photoshoot! Looove it! Their connection is so fresh and it shows in their photos! We shot at Corona Del Mar and it was such a dreamy spot! The sunset hit the rocks just right! I could shoot anniversary sessions all day! Now Booking for the Winter!

Lexington and Jared celebrated their 2nd anniversary with a fun couples session in Laguna Beach, California. These beaches are usually full of people and photographers, especially on the weekends. But we had to plan an early morning session since they had to catch their flight back home to Utah -which ended up working out perfectly with no crowds!
I loved hanging out with Lexington and Jared, and getting to know all about their story. They have been together for 6 years, but had met over 10 years ago. Jared was actually Lexington's Prom date her sophomore year in high school! How cute is that!?! They were married on a beach in Oahu, Hawaii and have two fur babies -Lola and Nikki. It's pretty awesome that Lexington came across my Instagram while searching for #losangelesphotographers. I'm super thankful that she trusted me to be apart of this special celebration!
I asked Lexington what she loves most about marriage and here are her words:
"All the little things! The little things are in reality the big things. We love holding hands, having breakfast and dinner together, talking about work each day, taking trips together, binge watching the newest Netflix series together, going on new adventures and trying new things. Our relationship is constantly growing and we love each other more and more everyday!"
I am absolutely in love with Anniversary sessions! What a special way to celebrate your love! I know its common to book a yearly family session, but getting photos taken of just the two of you is equally as important! I will definitely be offering more of these types of sessions for the upcoming year! I'm currently booking for 2019!
Anja and Alain came all the way from Germany to renew their vows for their 10 year anniversary! They had already had the big beautiful wedding, so this time they wanted an intimate ceremony on the beach with only their daughters to witness.
When I arrived to the Waterfront Resort, in Huntington Beach, the skies were dark and red from the active fires all over Southern California. But this wasn't going to put a damper on their parade. We started with a fun first look in front of the resort and then walked down to the beach to exchange their vows. The whole ceremony was spoken in German, even though I couldn't understand a single word, I could totally feel the love that this beautiful family has for each other. After 10 years of marriage, everyone still shed beautiful happy tears -I can only hope that Jack and I have that timeless kind of love!
Congratulations Anja & Alain, thank you so much for allowing me to capture this special time in your lives. It was a true honor :) Oh and the boys loved the gummy bears, thank you!

I'm a wedding photographer, West Elm lover, aspiring advocate for our buddies with special needs, and a Certified Dreamer since 1986. We live in a cozy city in Southern California and are always up for a good adventure. I enjoy telling stories with my camera, grubbing on spicy food, and solving the latest Dateline case.
