This couple is so beautiful together. They had their wedding at the Double Tree in Los Angeles. The hotel had a beautiful getting-ready suite and a secret spot out back with a water feature and a nice little grassy area for weddings. It was perfect. It also helps, however, that Judy and Muhanned are such a stunning couple.

I had the privilege of photographing this wedding with Kathryn Cooper, who is an AMAZING elopement and international photographer. She hired me because, obviously, she liked my work, but Stanley, Idaho, also happens to be a very familiar place. I grew up a few hours from there and visited a lot as a kid. My parents actually got married at Redfish Lake, as well (although I wasn’t there for that part, haha).

These two were a delight. Y and D hired me to photograph their wedding in Hawaii. They were both out of the country at the time, so planning was all a hectic affair. But in the end, it all came together and it was beautiful. They had their ceremony in a downtown Honolulu church. We had first look and formals at the Hilton in Honolulu. Then the reception was held at the Historic Officer’s Club on Hickam Air Force Base.

This girl was so much fun! I met Rachel on a FaceBook group and she needed some new headshots. It was an amazing blogger/lifestyle photography session. We had some extra time so she dressed up in some cute outfits and we had a lot of fun at a local Burbank coffee shop!

This little family makes me feel under-accomplished. Faith and her husband are restoring a 100-year-old farmhouse, raise goats, chickens, vegetables. They’ll take in most animals in need. They’re also raising two very busy young girls. So when I got a chance to photograph them all at sunset, I was very excited. They put on some dresses, brought out a blanket, and family photos started.

These two were the absolute best. Honestly, people always ask me if being a wedding photographer in Los Angeles is hard because of the brides. I’ve never had a bad experience with a couple. And I feel incredibly blessed to have brides and grooms like Amy and Erick. They’re two beautiful souls who love God and love each other. That’s my dream scenario.

This little family was such a joy to work with! Look at their new family photos!!! I met Bre through my sister and she has those delicate, doe-eyes and such a kind personality. Although I love doing family pictures in Los Angeles, the scenery around my native state is very hard to beat. This was an old country road I walked or rode many times with my horse and family.

These two are adorable! And they have a little adorable one coming soon! I’m so proud of these snowy maternity photos! When we first talked it was in the summer, and I was so excited for Brittany’s vision of a “mountain” or “camping” theme. One of the reasons I love portrait photography, and maternity photography, is the chance to explore, find new places, and adventure together.

Creating a wedding day timeline can be intimidating! This is my method for walking brides through creating a timeline! All you need to know, to start off, is the ceremony time. Then, I walk you through figuring out the rest.

FYI, most vendors want a rough timeline ASAP, but I always check back with a bride/groom closer to the wedding day. It’s normal for timelines to shift as little things get adjusted. Do not worry if you find out you’ll need to adjust the wedding timeline a little!
