Welcome to my blog! I’m a photographer based in Orange County, California. Wedding photography is what I specialize in but I love capturing ALL the special moments life has to offer! This blog serves as my online journal where I’ll post pictures from my most recent photo shoots, share my favorite “YouTube” videos, post adorable pictures of my dogs (yes, I’m one of “those” people), and talk about anything else I feel like! Take a look around…I hope you enjoy your time here!
What touched me the most about Jackie & Josh’s wedding was just how much they loved their families, how much their families loved them and how much their families loved each other. In my nearly 6 years of shooting weddings, I don’t think I’ve ever witnessed such closeness and appreciation amongst the families. Both Jackie’s parents and Josh’s parents thanked each other during the toasts and I can only hope that when I have kids and they get married, that I will be as lucky to have that kind of relationship as well. Jackie & Josh truly are lucky to have such amazing role models to look up to and model their marriage after. It was really any honor to witness the traditions of both their families and see all the generations come together to celebrate…something I will always remember!
Jackie & Josh…I’m so happy for you and thankful to have shared such a special moment with you and your wonderful families! Mazel tov! (I’ve always wanted to say that!)
Perfect backdrop for a wedding dress don’t you think?
Jackie looked so beautiful the day!!!
I love when couples choose to do a first look…it gives them a chance to have some alone time before the ceremony, have more time for portraits, talk about the excitement of the day…
and relax and have fun!
I love seeing my couples happy :-)
So glad that Josh & Jackie decided to do a first look since their ceremony would be taking place at sunset. This gave us plenty of time for pictures with beautiful natural light!
This is definitely one of my favorite images of the day!
I LOVED the lobby at the Portofino Hotel…love love love!!!
Some fun with their bridal party before the festivities begin!
During the Ketubah signing I couldn’t help but notice how often Jackie & Josh would steal glances at one another…I love that!
I loved all the traditions in Jackie & Josh’s wedding ceremony…here they are circling right after Jackie’s walk down the aisle…
Right before sunset!
I’ve always wanted to do this! It looks like so much fun!
The parents got in on the fun too!
I absolutely LOVE this photo of the grandmother’s cutting the challah…so special to have them all together!
The band Word of Mouth was awesome! I actually referred Jackie & Josh to them since they played at my wedding over 6 years ago!
LOL…I didn’t know Jackie & Josh knew Will Ferrell??
As you could see in the earlier photo the dance floor was crazy so this crew decided to party at their table…very smart! More room to dance and shake your booty!
I love the mischievous look on Jackie’s face :-)
Okay, so this may not be the perfect photo (I was shooting with the camera over my head) but I had to show proof that Josh did in fact plank at his wedding…how cool is that?!?!
