Hey guys – I am back from San Diego… I thought that town was something to talk about until I arrived at Raychel and Joels wedding in Monterey. The water was amazing – just breath taking. The hotel was built on stilts – it felt like we were on a cruise ship! These two have been together for six years and they are so young and sweet! It was a wonderful wedding – full of family – Raychel is one of five and Joel is one of SIX!! Incredible. Thank you for letting me be a part of your wedding day!

I love this couple – I know I say that a lot. I really bonded with this couple when we did the engagement shoot – we had lunch – explored many cool views in the city and chatted it up! They have been together for ten years – everyone there was so happy for them. I love this venue – what a view!!

Carlo + Abi = MARRIED!

August 24th, 2008

What a cool, hip – FUN wedding. I loved so many things about it – the hotel where they were getting ready – so chic and modern. The details that were put into the wedding – the FLOWERS – don’t get me started – I was in LOVE with them. They were dyed sun flowers… such an amazing touch and idea. The bride – Abi – so beuaitful – sexy and smart – Carlo – he had some moves – they were super super sweet. The room was full of family and LOVE – Carlo’s sister was the MC – she did an amazing job. They had a photo booth – what a treat for the guests. I can go on and on – one more thing – I loved shooting in the church and the urban session we had after – too cool! The shades – my idea – Abi pulls them off for sure! See you two soon. :)

Jenna & Josh

August 22nd, 2008

I always encourage the couples to have engagement sessions – I think it is a great way to get to know them – have them learn a little about me – and it gets them ready to pose like rock stars for the wedding day. I really enjoyed the session with Jenna and Josh. They were super fun. They needed no direction and they just laughed for most of the time. They told me that they were never serious and basically loved to have a good time. Then Josh told me about his kickball team! I really enjoyed the afternoon with you – I’m so glad the sun joined us!

Jessika & Sean & Maddy!

August 20th, 2008

Jessika & Sean picked me up an hour and a half before sunset which is great time for light – there was a packed car. They brought along their baby Maddy – she is such a character – we took a few photos with Maddy then focused more on Jessika & Sean. I am looking forward to their wedding in one month at a cute little winery!
