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).

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.

This is Vanessa and Steven. I was able to take their engagement pictures towards the beginning of November at Malibu Creek State Park in Los Angeles. Vanessa wore an amazing red dress and Steven was dapper in a crisp suit with an open collar. The entire look worked very well. They were both a little nervous but you couldn’t tell it from the photos!

Inside an artist’s chest there beats two hearts. One is weak and ugly. It is necessary, the pessimist, the one who critiques, talks finances, and picks out all the little details that aren’t correct. The other one is colorful, vibrant, relishes the colors of the sunset, and imagines up the most beautiful creations. It never thinks about something as trivial as money or food. Those things just don’t matter compared to the soul-filling joy of CREATING.

Emily and Nick got married in the best way. They went on a trip up into the mountains and got married with a photographer and an officiant (who was also a part-time buffalo rancher, eeekkk!!). Emily found me on the Knot and then stalked me on Instagram and decided she wanted me to be their elopement photographer. They traveled there the night before, explored a bit, and gave me coordinates for where they wanted to do it.

As a portrait photographer, I always have a running list in my head of beautiful places. And when a couple like this says, “Whatever you think is best,” this is the result. These two were so sweet and obviously loved each other deeply. Their affection wasn’t showy, but their little whispers and subtle cues showed they knew and paid attention to each other. They were a pleasure to photograph. I love doing engagement photos in nature. In the middle of this session, the wind kicked up and a storm whipped through. You can see the dust and wind in some of the ones by the lake. But they were willing to keep going, so I kept photographing. So proud of these stunning images!

I love doing engagement photography for cute couples. And the thing about my idea of a cute couple is that you don’t have to be particularly attractive, young, or thin in order to be a cute couple. To be a cute couple, you have to be in love. You look at each other with that little mix of adoration and let everything else (including my presence) slip away. Be willing to look stupid and try funny things because some lady with a camera told you to. Giggle, tickle, and be ready to tell your significant other what they mean.
