Sweet Anaheim Hills Wedding - Korryne + Keller - Orange County

I am so excited to share with you some highlights from Korryne and Keller's wedding! Marine and southern stud met Socal beauty Korryne, a no fess, laid back, say it like you mean it woman...Keller was hooked and how do they say it?--the rest was history! These two know how to have a good time and their wedding reflected just that. Priorities were made for this day and it was all kinds of fun, filled with dancing, laughter, and heartfelt tears. This is what love looks like!

 

Blessed by southern California rain in the weeks prior, the beautiful canyon where their ceremony took place was lush and green.

 

 

 

 

Chandeliers sparkled above their heads as they smiled, laughed, and shed a few tears.   

The kiss.

Enjoying a few intimate moments together after becoming husband and wife.

Love capturing those in between moments like this.

First dance goals.

Mother of the bride's tears matched her daughters as the father-daughter dance took place. 

Bride and groom were surprised with these Mr. and Mrs. cups when they took their seats.

Grandma on the bride's side, shared with me she wore this same dress to her wedding and wanted to wear it here for good luck to the young couple!

Romantic San Juan Capistrano Wedding - Mikaylah + Evan - Orange County

This was one of those weddings were I went home and I was so happy with what I do. I am a firm believer that photography should be one of the biggest investments in your life. It might be from the many many times my family would look through the giant albums my mom made, but photographs have always been a big part of my life. I love looking back and being able to recall a memory because of a photograph or asking about an image that goes beyond me and learning something about my family history. When I began photographing weddings, I felt like a part of history. These are the images tell a family's real story.

Mikaylah and Evan's wedding was by far a favorite of mine. There was so much family, so much love throughout the day. The baby of all her sisters, Mikaylah was surrounded by her best friends for life. As the evening progressed the bride and groom danced surrounded by all their nieces and nephews. It was truly a sweet, sweet affair that will be remembered fondly from all different perspectives, all different generations.

Below are some highlights...

Dressing To Impress This Holiday Season

Thanksgiving is officially behind us. I hope everyone can attest to eating as much turkey as I did. And now...onward to the Christmas season! I'm sure many of you will agree with me, there is something about Christmas that just makes everything good. There is nothing I love more than seeing all the lights and decorations. I absolutely love the window displays, each transporting you to magical world. I'll admit sometimes I head to the mall, grab a cup of cocoa, and my favorite almond croissant, just to look at the over the top holiday displays. The creativity that goes into everything is just one of the reasons I love the season so much.

Another reason it remains my favorite season is the holiday parties. Holiday parties are a chance for us to show that same creativity, luxury, and opulence. One of the few things in today's casual world we can still dress up for. Perhaps it is the cold weather allowing us to wear that outrageous fur coat that automatically ups the ante or the twinkling lights that provide the perfect ambience for our floor length gown we thought we would never have a chance to wear...but let us dress to impress this holiday season.

Last week I had the pleasure of shooting Miss Taylor Anne of Brand Models. Here she shows us some perfect holiday looks from the party, to after hours. Everyone on set was loving the sequined asymmetrical dress, vintage fur coat, black velvet, and classic lingerie. What do you guys think?
