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 […]

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 […]

“They are the sweetest!!” I raved to my husband as we talked on the phone after my initial meeting with David and Petra. We had just had a wonderful conversation over coffee; they detailed their wedding day and emphasized the importance of their guest experience – it was evident that these two cared deeply for […]

I’m incredibly lucky to work with couples who are beautiful inside and out! These two kindhearted humans made this Venice Beach session extra special with their fun-loving energy and amazing style. They brought along their rescued fur baby, Margeaux!! Take a look at our adventures through Abbot Kinney Boulevard, the Venice Canals and Venice Beach… […]
