Wedding/Elopement Photographer


Down to earth elopement and wedding photographer. Obsessed with my job is an understatement. I’d rather chat over a beer than a coffee any day.

As a lot of you know when it comes to weddings, well anything really, there are different cultures and customs for different parts of the world. There’s actually one from the southern United States that is very common that is uncommon here on the West Coast. ⁣ ⁣ Bridal Portraits: When a bride puts on her wedding dress and takes bridal portraits of just herself. She gets them printed out on large canvases or printed and beautiful frames and put them facedown on the table before the ceremony. Once the ceremony is done being performed they are put on display during the cocktail hour and reception so people can see her beautiful bridal portraits. ⁣ ⁣ Something that we do here on the West Coast that they don’t necessarily do in the south is post wedding photos. That’s when the bride and groom get dressed up again after their wedding and we do a whole Bride And Groom session in a location of their choice since we don’t have a lot of firm with them during their wedding. ⁣ ⁣ A few weeks back @woodxbloom and I have the opportunity to fly out to Nashville Tennessee and take @jleng17’s bridal portraits. It was a huge secret project that was very hard to keep. It consists of three different set ups, a 200 acre property, enough pampas grass to fill and entire wedding and lots and lots of bugs. Lol. Jen’s dress was a custom-made @grace_loves_lace gown. It was perfect beyond belief. It made her glow and it fit her like a glove. ⁣ ⁣ These images were not supposed to be released until October 14 but due to unfortunate circumstances we are able to release them early. She took her dress to go get cleaned and unfortunately they did not clean the fabric correctly and her entire dress shrank just three days before her wedding. Luckily she found a back up but her dream gown is ruined. ⁣ ⁣ My heart goes out to you Jen. I am so sorry that happened but don’t waste your tears on it. You are beautiful inside and out and no matter what you wear Gary will still be waiting for you and the end of the aisle to be your husband.❤️ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ #Nashville #NashvillePhotography#SouthernPhotographer #NashvilleWeddingPhotographer #BridalPortraits #NashvilleengagementPhotographer

“GO AHEAD, MAKE MY MILLENNIAL”⁣ ⁣ Not only is this a quote from the bride‘s favorite movie(Beetlejuice) but I am saying this is my head to 2020. ⁣ ⁣ 🖕 ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ #Photographer#WeddingPhotographer #InlandEmpirePhotographer #TemeculaPhotographer #OrangeCountyWeddingPhotographer #TemeculaWeddingPhotographer #FamilyPhotographer#HalloweenWedding #BeetleJuice #DirtyBootsMessyHair #Unscriptedapp #FunCouple #CarefreeCouple #WeddingDress #Bride #groom

If my future husband doesn’t support me like this then I don’t want it!!! PHOTOSHOOT STORY: Lisa and Winkler booked me for a day and a half elopement. The first day we were supposed to go to Taft point and second day we were supposed to do glacier point, an in home Airbnb session and then the meadows for sunset. But due to the smoke I wanted to go ahead of them and make sure that it was still able to photograph at Taft Point well. I gave them directions and a time to be there but it was their first time in the park and no one has cell service. My walkie talkies were supposed to have service for up to 35 miles but they cut off about 2 miles in. Unfortunately by the time that they found the location it was already dark.😔 I waited on the side of the road for a few hours and when they drove up Lisa was almost in tears with her hair and makeup flawlessly done and kept apologizing. It broke my heart. Photographers usually ALWAYS have a backup plan just in case things don’t workout in our favor. Especially when timing and the sun is something that we cannot stop or slow down. And thankfully in this situation I had a great one. The next day was going to be a very busy and rough one but it was beautiful nonetheless. We were able to cram everything in one day and still get a nap in. Lisa and Winkler ended their crazy elopement day watching a BEAUTIFUL sunset on the cliffs of Taft Point. They sky was the most clear that I’ve seen it all week. It was smoke cleared up just for them. Everything happens for a reason. So if you run late or the weather is not on our side, do not fret or stress.

This past week has been INSANE!! I had 1 full day elopement and 1 day and a half elopement in Yosemite. Then drove to Lake Tahoe for a bride and groom session for my second shooter. Had absolutely zero signal through all of it but wouldn’t change a thing. It was really nice just focusing on art without any distractions. ⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣ Congratulations Lisa and Wink!!!!⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Now off to a wedding in Murrieta, CA.

I know every photographer is different but this how sessions are with me. When you ask me how long is a beach engagement session versus, let’s just say a Joshua tree engagement session they are very very different. Here’s why....⁣ ⁣ If you go to a beach with no cliffs and literally just water and sun for your background your session will be shorter and your photo options will be limited. There is only so much you can do with the same exact background and if the sun is too high you’re photos will be too bright unusable so you can only really start shooting around an hour before sunset. If you go to a beach that has cliffs or rocks and stuff like that there will be more photo options for you in your gallery because there is more for you to do at that location. If you do more of an adventure session such as Joshua tree or somewhere in the mountains that changes the game. ALSO, the more props you bring in any location the more photo options you get. ⁣ ⁣ Most of the time during adventure sessions you might want to get an Airbnb for the night. But that also gives you the option to have an intimate “in home” part of your engagement session. So not only do you get the in-home session that shows your fun personality around your every day life in a super cute and stylish Airbnb but you get all the backgrounds that the area has to offer. ⁣ ⁣ For this specific engagement session I was with the couple from 3:30pm to about 830pm. We relaxed in the Airbnb once we were done with the in home session and planned out going through the park. We got to know each other on a personal level which made our friendship grow. They brought different outfits and their props were on point! They brought their fur babies, hats, special sunglasses, mini ears(they’re Disney fans like me), four bottles of champagne, a blanket, bubbles and sparklers(we did those on dirt at the Airbnb). I took a total of 1628 photos during my 5 hours with them. During my last beach engagement session I took 407 during about an hour and 15 minutes. That does not mean that the couples received every single photo and yes I might have over shot just a bit but I cannot miss any moments!

“I know she 𝒔𝒂𝒚𝒔 it’s totally normally for kids to act up during a shoot; but is she 𝒓𝒆𝒂𝒍𝒍𝒚 prepared for my circus?!”⁣ ⁣ “My kids are never going to sit and pose, are these photos even going to be worth the hassle?”⁣ ⁣ Sound like some of your thoughts & worries when booking with me? Totally normal you guys! Kids are kids. We can’t expect them to be little performance monkeys and sit and smile and act perfect for an entire photoshoot, right?! I mean, sometimes it’s hard enough for us to get our grown husbands to participate, you feel me? 🤪⁣ ⁣ 𝐃𝐎. 𝐍𝐎𝐓. 𝐅𝐑𝐄𝐓. I really really mean it when I say ITS OK! No ones babies act like perfect angels during a shoot. No one comes in and knows exactly how to stand, how to pose or how to “act natural” with a camera pointed at you. But that’s why I’m here! I will absolutely make sure we have such a fun time, it 𝒘𝒊𝒍𝒍 feel natural & I will give you amazing poses like “butt smack, hit the monkey, dance party” ⁣ Plus, how many times have you looked at your sweet angels doing really absolutely nothing & wished you could just freeze them in time right where they are; completely unposed? We are gonna capture all those moments, and more, 𝓽𝓸𝓰𝓮𝓽𝓱𝓮𝓻.⁣ ⁣ What’re some things 𝒚𝒐𝒖 can do to help the day run as smooth as possible? The biggest tips that have worked for my families:⁣ ⁣ - Schedule your shoot at your little ones happiest time of time. Directly after nap! They are always rested & ready to play!⁣ ⁣ - Bring snacks! What do we love to do when we gather with friends and loved ones? We eat. Your little one will always perk up when you offer them their favorite snack in the middle of a shoot! Plus, a little bribery never hurt anyone, right? 🤪⁣ ⁣ - For older kids, let them give their input! I’ve had so many families who the older kids have such fun ideas for poses, or want to get behind the camera between shots to see how it came out! It helps them feel more comfortable and HEY! Maybe you’ll have a future photographer on your hands!⁣ ⁣ - Put outfits and last minute details on when you arrive. It makes the car ride to the location more fun & laid back if you don’t have to stress about spills the whole way

A question that I was asked alot growing up is 𝗪𝐇𝐎 𝐀𝐑𝐄 𝐘𝐎𝐔? Now that I’m older I am understanding who I am. And not only that but also what I need/want in a life partner. I am spontaneous, stubborn, messy, I think of the present instead of the future, when I’m mad/sad I shut down and leave for a drive instead of talk it out, I fear of going through life and not taking the chances I wish I did. I never want to say “shoulda, coulda, woulda” I want to say “𝐈 𝐰𝐚𝐧𝐭 𝐭𝐨, 𝐈 𝐰𝐢𝐥𝐥, 𝐈 𝐝𝐢𝐝”⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ I need someone that grounds me but still lets me fly knowing I’m going to come back. Someone that will teach me gentle lessons to get me out of my bad habits. Someone who will meet me in the middle during an argument when I want to shut down and leave. Someone that says “𝐢𝐟 𝐲𝐨𝐮 𝐝𝐨𝐧’𝐭 𝐭𝐚𝐤𝐞 𝐭𝐡𝐢𝐬 𝐜𝐡𝐚𝐧𝐜𝐞 𝐲𝐨𝐮’𝐥𝐥 𝐫𝐞𝐠𝐫𝐞𝐭 𝐢𝐭. 𝐃𝐨 𝐢𝐭.”⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ I have found that in him. When I need to leave cause I’m upset he lets me and welcomes me home with open arms, he makes me learn from my own mistakes, he is constantly giving me subtle reality checks, he makes me take every opportunity that presents itself to me, he has made me into a much better person and has broken(𝘢𝘭𝘮𝘰𝘴𝘵) all of my bad habits that I’ve wanted to break without me even noticing it.⁣ ⁣ 𝐓𝐡𝐚𝐧𝐤 𝐲𝐨𝐮 𝐟𝐨𝐫 𝐚𝐜𝐜𝐞𝐩𝐭𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐦𝐞 𝐟𝐨𝐫 𝐦𝐞. Never once trying to change me. Being calm and understanding with me. Being my number one supporter. Standing up for me. Knowing my dreams and helping me make them come true. I love you.

Not gonna lie, I am pretty obsessed with this wedding trend right now. The whole pompous grass and triangle arch, double arbor, peacock chairs and everything like that.
