Scott & Anthony – Vi Sattui, Napa Valley Wedding

Well, it’s the final day of 2015 and I thought it would be a good idea to blog one last entry before the new year.

As I reflect on all the amazing weddings I experienced this year I am overjoyed and humbled that each and every one of my couples has trusted me to document such an intimate and special occasion in their lives.

I’ve been so lucky to work with some of the industries best wedding vendors, venues and peers and look forward to what 2016 has in store.

From the bottom of my heart… THANK YOU!

xoxo

Rehearsal Dinner Coverage – the new trend?

I’ve noticed that having photography coverage at the rehearsal dinner has become quite popular over the last year and I have to say, I am a huge fan of this trend.

This can be a great way to get to know the couple and their friends and family a bit more before the big day.  Often times, my couples don’t live locally so I don’t always get to meet them in person before their wedding day.

This lovely rehearsal dinner was hosted at Mattei’s Tavern in Los Olivos.  The bride did a fabulous job incorporating some personal touches special to her and her groom.  For instance, the bright and cheery sunflower centerpieces were an ode to her husbands home town of Kansas.

Here are a few favorite images from that evening!  Their wedding photos are coming soon.  You won’t want to miss them.

The Lopez Family – an in-home portrait session

Happy Friday!  It’s still pretty exciting when the weekend arrives even when I have to work.  There is just a certain buzz in the air when Friday hits, especially on a holiday weekend.

Weekends are special and best spent with the ones you love.  As a matter of fact, a lazy Sunday is what actually inspired this family shoot I am sharing today.

Usually when I do these types of sessions, we meet at a cool park or rural area and photograph the mom, dad and kids frolicking through the big empty field which is always so lovely.

But there is something very intimate, sweet and charming about doing an in-home family photo session.  Being at home is relaxing and casual.  Everyone is in their own element, the kids play with their toys, jump on their beds and read their favorite books.  They are open, playful and wanting to share.

When the Lopez family contacted me about doing their shoot, we tried searching for a cool venue but nothing really felt right and then mama suggested I come to their home.  I had been wanting to do something like this for a while now so it was perfect and I am SO excited to share some of my favorite images from our time together.

Enjoy!

Rachel + Ted – Calamigos Ranch, Malibu Wedding

Happy Monday!

Did everyone have a great weekend?  It was my last Saturday off for about 2 months and I made sure to soak in every last second of it with my family and friends.  It was a spectacular day spent at the beach and by the pool with the littles.  I couldn’t have asked for anything more.

As I enter my busiest month of the year, I can’t help but reflect on how lucky I have been so far.  I’ve gotten to work with some pretty amazing couples, like Rachel and Ted for instance.

They got married earlier this month at Calamigos Ranch in the hills of Malibu.  Their super sweet wedding was so charming and romantic I just couldn’t wait to share.  Here are a few of my favorites from the day!

Of course the amazing team of vendors can be found below.

Enjoy!

Melissa + Sean – The Sunset Malibu Wedding

It was a beautiful, perfect, sunny afternoon in Malibu for Melissa and Sean’s wedding in July.  They flew out with 15 of their nearest and dearest for a super intimate beach wedding ceremony.  They were all welcomed with warm salty air and some of the largest waves we have seen all summer.

Their simple yet stunning red, white and silver color palette made for the most elegant dinner reception at The Sunset Restaurant.

Thank you SO much for including me in this special day!  I am truly honored to have been a part of such an intimate celebration and enjoyed dancing the night away with you all!
