Colorful Los Angeles wedding at The Fig House

Hello friends! Today I am excited to share one of my favorite weddings of the year.  Shooting at The Fig House has been on my bucket list for a while (I mean, those colors!) and this gorgeous couple, along with their family & friends, couldn't have been sweeter bunch. I loved how much joy & laughter filled the air during this love celebration and feel grateful that I got to be a part of it all. Sending out a big THANK YOU to Katie for helping me document the magic of the day!

Groovy kind of love // At home love session in Los Angles

I photographed Sue & Nate’s wedding a couple years back and it was one of THEmost fun, creative, and emotional wedding that I’ve been lucky enough to shoot, so far. Let’s just say that I cried. ALOT. They are a bit quirky with an old fashion vibe going on, so I just had to get them in front of my camera when I started shooting film again.  When I arrived at their sweet home, they confided in me that they were expecting (I may have cried again, haha) so that just made the whole shoot that much more magical.

The week of this shoot,  LA was brutally hot, so nibbling on watermelon and being outdoors after the sun dropped was perfect. Of course,  I couldn’t help but to get a couple shots utilizing the watermelon as a prop since there was no obvious belly yet ;) SO excited for you, Sue & Nate!!

The happiest day // colorful Los Angeles wedding

Saying that I love this wedding is an understatement. The whole gang was so loving and laid back that I felt like I was an old friend the whole day. There was tons of sentimental good-ness and happy tears that resulted in me crying – alot.

Taking the metro to the reception space was the couples idea, which I LOVED,  but not as much as I loved the Mexican inspired decor at the reception space. Crazy beautiful.

A huge thanks to my totally sweet second shooter, Felicity (thanks girl!)

California Dreamin' // Venice Beach Engagment session

When I found out my buddies, Mike and Nina got engaged, my first thought was that I just HAD to photograph them. They are both so freakin cool and are always inspiring me with their wild adventures. And when they aren’t traveling, they live in this sweet Venice Beach pad, just a block from the boardwalk! My goal was to keep it real and document this rad couple just being themselves. Their babe, Bijoux, also joined us on our sunset adventure.
