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!
Karen & Chuck live in New York but decided to get married in sunny Santa Monica, California! They totally lucked out because their wedding day was just sunny & gorgeous which I’m sure is exactly what they wanted :-) These two lovebirds met at a costume party and have been together ever since! I loved seeing them together because you could see their love is truly genuine and they are just like two peas in a pod! During the reception I caught them constantly being lovey dovey with each other (which you would think is a normal occurrence at a wedding) but often times couples get so caught up in talking to guests, makings the rounds, etc that they barely get a chance to spend time TOGETHER. Not these two…they were always dancing and smiling together which I just loved.
I see a very bright future for these two…CONGRATS Karen & Chuck on saying your I DO’s! I wish you both nothing but the best! xoxo
I adored Karen’s Monique Lhuillier gown!
Karen was glowing on her wedding day! Love this moment with her mom putting on her veil :-)
Love this! Their suite at Casa Del Mar was like a condo!
I love the look on Karen’s face as she approaches Chuck for their “first look”.
Chuck was thrilled to see her obviously :-)
Their gorgeous bridal party :-)
The happy couple :-)
Some California sunshine for this NY couple :-)
Karen really wanted a shot on the spiral staircase…she has a great eye! Love how dramatic this is!
The ballroom was set up beautifully for their ceremony…

Love how happy Karen is here!
The new Mr. & Mrs!
Lighting is SO important to set the mood for ANY event but especially a wedding reception!
The florals were fantastic…
Love how happy Chuck looks during their first dance as husband & wife!
Karen was clearly emotional during her father’s welcoming toast!
