Beaches. Cliffs. Tropical islands. Wedding 'I do's' overlooking the water.

Nick and Stephanie were both raised in the tight-knit community of Newport Beach and both attended USC, two places where everyone knows each other and athletics are – well – somewhat of a big stinkin’ deal. Nick is a charming guy with a HILARIOUS sense of humor that never played football – nor had the desire to – but

It’s been a film kind of week dear bloggy-blog, and today is continuing the goodness with the medium format images we made at Nate and Susan’s wedding at the Montage Laguna Beach. The color, texture, depth, and detail of film is something that I live for – there’s simply nothing like it! We photographed these

Nate and Susan’s wedding at the Montage Laguna Beach was simply magical! The day looked stunning with the beautiful floral work of Sticks and Stones, and everything moved flawlessly thanks to the veteran expertise of Paula Laskelle of Champagne Taste. We enjoyed every second of working with Paula and her team, and are so thankful to

Watching Nate and Susan glide around the ballroom to mingle with their friends and family felt as natural and timeless as the gorgeous orchids  that were glimmering with candlelight in their tall centerpiece vases.  There was a cocktail of jazz music and dinner conversations floating through the room, and all of the guests were right at home with each other

A girl knows when she finds the One. At least, that was certainly the case the Stephanie. When she joined Nick for a family trip down to La Jolla one October, she fell in love with his family, his heart, and his smile. He made her laugh. He made her feel special. He held her tight, and she

This was one of those elegant weddings that Jeff and I live for – it was upscale, refined, sophisticated, sweet, emotional, and seriously lovely.  Jennifer Cole Florals worked her magic with the decor and transformed

So when those around him heard that he had a girlfriend – an outgoing, gorgeous girl with just as much talent and ambition

David and Caitlin’s stunning estate wedding on Mercer Island in Seattle continues today with a lovely tented reception on the sweeping back lawn overlooking the water. I love that these two chose long wooden tables with family style benches from Seattle Farm Tables and McKenzie Powell Design did an excellent job on the soft summer florals. From their favorite local

How David hooked her, nobody knows. All of his college frat buddies marvel at the fact that the straight-laced computer guy they nicknamed ‘Digital Dave’ hooked a girl as gorgeous, elegant, and thoughtful as Caitlin. In fact, this nerdy boy himself would totally admit that he’s marrying up. But when Caitlin looks at David we all
