Gigi & Gustavo's Wedding, Saint Timothy's Church, Los Angles, CA

Gigi & Gus are the warmest, funniest couple. I had such a blast with them at their sweet and stylish engagement session, so I knew their wedding would be awesome. Right off the bat, I felt the vibe this cool couple was going for and loved it. Destination weddings are an amazing jumping off point for my imagination, and I mean come on, it's LA! Gigi was classic Hollywood, with striking makeup by Beauty by Dee and a beautifully layered Oleg Cassini dress, and Gus looked super sharp in a killer suit with a black lapel. It was a pleasure working with Kelsey Connelly who orchestrated the event, making each moving part flow so beautifully. Gigi & Gus we're determined to throw a memorable wedding, and succeeded beautifully. I was totally blown away by the convergence of cultural elements, from their gorgeous Spanish style church, St. Timothy's, to the poppy Beverly Hill's Police Department, and entertainment spanning from mariachis to belly dancers. But beyond the entertainment, this was one beautiful affair. The florals by Parties and Petals, the lighting, the ambiance, this wedding was the very definition of glamourous. Thanks Gigi & Gus, this was quite the trip!

Jennifer & Charles' Wedding, Gloria Ferrer Vineyards, Sonoma, CA

Jennifer & Charles were introduced to me by the lovely Cinthy Walsh from a Touch of Grace. I adore working with Cinthy because I always know that the wedding will be nothing short of spectacular, and with a venue like Gloria Ferrer I was not disappointed. Jennifer was stunning in a James Clifford textured dress which was to die for, and her flawless makeup and hair, by darling Penney Do, were a wonderful compliment. I loved Charles' details and the vintage modern quality of his attire made for some awesome starting shots that day. I was also a bit obsessed with the beautiful florals by Teresa Stoner Floral Designs. To say the least, every inch of this wedding was gorgeous, which was impressive considering that Jenn & Charles planned it all from Washington State! But with amazing ideas, great vendors, and the sweetest of sweet couples, everything worked out amazingly well. Thank you so much Jenn & Charles, your wedding was such a pleasure to be a part of :)

Silvia & Eric's Wedding, Charles Krug Vineyards, St. Helena, CA

Silvia & Eric are an amazingly sweet couple, who were introduced to me through the ever-awesome A Touch of Grace Events. I'm so grateful for the connect, because Silvia and Eric's wedding was stupendous. Charles Krug is a breathtaking venue with so many wonderful nooks and crannies that a very full day photographing went by in a blink of an eye. I was especially impressed by the miniature bamboo forest, which yielded one of my favorite shots of the day. Silvia had three outfit changes throughout the day, each one more beautiful than the last. I was so fortunate to be able to take my time to capture every detail, as there really was so much to shoot. In fact, I'm pretty sure this was one of my highest capture weddings, which says a lot! In fact, I really couldn't have gotten it all done with out  my most esteemed associate Scott MacDonald, who got some of the killer pics below. Thanks Silvia, Eric, and the team. You guys were all wonderful to work with!
