These two created the most relaxed, laid-back, joyful wedding. With just a handful of friends, they took to their longtime country club and said their vows surrounded by pink roses that matched the bride’s hair. Here’s just a few from the fun afternoon!
If it had been up to this bride, Emily would have eloped but her fiance, Cory convinced her that looking back, she'd be glad they were able to celebrate with those closest to them! Her laid back cool girl vibes created the perfect effortless chic May 5th, Wedding. Cinco de Mayo holds a special place in their hearts as a couple. Borrowing from the holiday, the wedding incorporated bold vibrant colors, delicious comfort mexican food, and featured a breathtaking view of the ocean.

I got to be a part of Tara and Sergio's most glamorous love affair. Mixing Old Hollywood charm and their own modern aesthetic, the day had the perfect mix of iconic nostalgia.
The bride and groom spent the morning separately, leisurely getting ready at the Montage, Beverly Hills with family and friends.
While the bride relaxed at the spa, the groom's best man helps him into his ensemble.
Their first look took place in one of the beautiful gardens at the Grey Stone Mansion. The glint of light coming off the bride's shoulder-ugh! Just Kills Me!
Tara and Sergio's comfort and ease with each other was beautiful. It was like seeing two people coming home. They were all smiles and sweet kisses before their ceremony.
The cutest flower girls donned their flower crowns with their sparkly, lace white dresses.
The architecture of Grey Stone Mansion and the Bride's sleek dress was perfect.
In a special personal touch, the bride's brother ordained the ceremony adding lots of laughs and sweetness.
Their reception took place at Wolfgang's Puck's Spago complete with a black cake covered in red roses.
The bride's Louboutins save her seat as she says hello to some guests.
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.
Enjoying a few intimate moments together after becoming husband and wife.
Love capturing those in between moments like this.
Driven away in chic red falcon...
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!

I had shot Korryne's pictures when she graduated from college. Then, after shooting her cousin's wedding, where she happened to be the maid of honor, Korryne and her mama reached out to me about doing her own wedding! Nothing makes me happier than when clients come to me repeatedly. It means they love my work and trust me!
Turning out to be the most laid back bride-to-be ever along with her super chill fiànce, Korryne and Keller showed up for their engagement session on the most beautiful overcast day in laguna. I love shooting on these type of days. I can't help but see these two as characters in a most intense love story.
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.
