The Malibu Rocky Oaks Vineyard has to be one of my favorite venues I’ve shot at to date!  The house was just incredible and the views were to die for!  I can see why Joy & Alex decided to have their wedding here…it was a little piece of heaven tucked away in Malibu!  All their family and friends had an amazing time that day as did I!  The day couldn’t have been more beautiful and I feel so lucky to have been a part of it!  Special thanks to Joelle Duff of A Charming Occasion for making the day go so smoothly!!

Congrats Joy & Alex!  Thanks so much for sharing your special day with me…it was such an honor :-)

I loved the Malibu Rocky Oaks Estate…the perfect backdrop for everything!

The beautiful bride :-)

The views were incredible!

See what I mean?!?

I believe this is the coolest ceremony spot ever…helicopter pad!

Of course they had to have their fur babies there!

I love how happy they both are!

So incredible!!

Check out the smiles on their faces…love it!


I can’t get enough of the views!!!

This infinity pool was INSANE!

One of my favorite ever bouquet toss shots!!

So cute…Joy’s bridesmaids surprised her with a mini flash mob :)

I have no words!

A couple of weeks ago I traveled up North to Half Moon Bay to capture Nicole & Matt’s wedding.  This is the second time I’ve had the pleasure of working with Matt’s family as I shot his brother’s wedding not too long ago!  I felt truly honored when Matt contacted me to capture his wedding day and loved seeing his family again!  This was the first time I got to meet Nicole’s family since they live up North and they were all so sweet to me as well!  Nicole’s Father & Grandpa even asked about Evie which I thought was so sweet that they even knew of her!  I could tell right away what a bond these two families have with one another even though they live so far apart considering Matt’s family is from SoCal :-)

It was a gorgeous wedding day filled with love…love between Nicole and Matt and love felt amongst both their families!  Thank you so much to everyone that made me feel so welcome!  It was an honor and to Matt & Nicole…I wish you both nothing but the best as you start your new lives together! xoxo

I loved the church…it was gorgeous!

The beautiful bride arriving…

Last few moments before the walk down the aisle!

Love this one of Nicole & her Dad!

The beautiful couple :-)

The ceremony was heartfelt and beautiful…filled with tears and laughter!  The priest read letters that Nicole & Matt had written to each other…I loved this special moment during the ceremony!

Love this one of Nicole leaning on Matt…he is her rock!

The happy couple!

The grounds at the Half Moon Bay Golf Link Club was gorgeous!

I love how lovingly Nicole is looking at Matt here :-)

Love this one!


Love how happy they both look here :-)

Matt is one lucky guy…and he knows it based on the look he has on his face :-)

All the guests had so much fun celebrating!
