Welcome to the XO & Fetti Blog!

Here, you can be inspired, see past work, and get to know me a bit better!


This year has been, at the very least, one of discovery. Many of us have found ourselves in situations we never thought we’d be in, we found that no matter how much planning we did, things could (and would) change on a whim. But, even in a pandemic, there is reason to celebrate. The love […]


This styled shoot was such a treat!! It was planned by Katie from Fruitvale Designs, she envisioned a rustic farmhouse feel with lots of red apples. I think she nailed it! This shoot was set up at Julian Station, we lucked out with dreamy light and picture perfect spots. & How cute is the very […]


I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, we are truly lucky to live in California! This beautiful venue, Sunstone Winery, is not too far from Los Angeles – it’s in Santa Ynez…far enough to feel like a destination wedding but close enough to drive to and back in a day! As soon as […]


I’m truly thankful for the wonderful couples I get to work with and though this year has been a doozy… it has also been a year of continued growth XO and Fetti. Camille and Leo booked our team during a time of uncertainty, and they trusted that we’d capture their love with all the magic […]

Check out Sarah’s insights below and comment if you have a question or something to add to the […]


“Let’s plan an anniversary session!” I’d say almost EVERY year after our wedding. I thought for sure we’d make it happen for our five year anniversary, “it’s a milestone,” I thought to myself. I made it as far as ordering a sage dress from BHLDN and purchasing silver flats from Nordstrom’s…. and then the five […]


I know it is incredibly difficult for couples planning their wedding right now; many have shifted their plans a few times and some can no longer use their original venue due to the pandemic. I have a bride who recently asked me for private home, or smaller-sized venue recommendations since hers has shut down. I […]


I am always amazed by the beauty around us; the Orcutt Ranch Horticulture Center located in West Hills is a hidden gem. The property is open to the public and is filled with beautiful gardens and an orange grove! I explored with Kim and Eddie whom were referred to me by my dear friend and […]


I am thrilled to share this engagement session today! I met these two in Palos Verdes, we had an amazing time exploring both the fields and the nearby beach. They are such sweethearts! I hope this beautiful session brings joy into your hearts… How did you meet? Shar and I met on a trip to […]


Dear readers (do I have any? Bueller. Bueller.), I’ve always wanted to do a time capsule post – something that summarized the previous year for me to reflect back on and appreciate it all that much more. And, since I am finding myself with more time on my hands, I thought now would be a […]
