Nicole and Adam's Seaside Wedding-Kiana Lodge-Poulsbo Washington-Seattle Destination Wedding

Flying out to Destination Weddings is one of my favorite things, especially when it is for as sweet of a couple as Nicole and Adam! I have known Nicole for a few years now, and I was thrilled to photograph her wedding. She got married up by Seattle, Washington in a beautiful seaside town called Poulsbo. The place they picked was the Kiana Lodge, located right by the water with towering trees and rocky beaches surrounding it. It was on that beach where they first started dating, and now the Kiana Lodge would forever echo their wedding vows within it's walls! As a super fun and outdoorsy couple, this was a perfect location. There is even a giant log on the beach that they climbed on for photos! The day was spent in love, fun, and laughter and lots of photos! And even though it was a March wedding in the notorious rainy Seattle area, God blessed them both with a beautiful sunshine day! It was a perfect destination for an even more perfect couple! Enjoy this look into their special day!

Kathleen and Phil - Sedona Arizona Engagement Session - Bell Rock - Red Rock Canyon

Our original plan with Kathleen and Phil was to have them do a beach session at Laguna Beach, but as they both lived in AZ, finding a weekend that worked for them to come up was proving difficult. So, when they asked if I they could fly me over to them to do their engagement session, I jumped at the chance! We immediately brainstormed ideas for where to go and settled on Sedona, Arizona. I flew in on a Sunday morning, and met with them early Sunday afternoon in Sedona. There were so many beautiful places to go, but we settled on Bell Rock and a beautiful river area off Oak Creek Canyon for their engagement session! I was able to visit the Grand Canyon and Antelope Canyon in addition to Sedona while on this trip! It started out amazing with doing this awesome engagement session at Bell Rock, and continued to be an epic trip as we traveled throughout AZ! Enjoy the photos!

Pirate Tower Engagement - Amanda and Josh - Victoria Beach Engagement Session - Treasure Island - Laguna

Amanda and Josh are a vivacious and fun-loving couple who have a passion for life and one another! Photographing their engagement session was a blast! Amanda had three gorgeous outfits planned out, and we even hit up three different beach locations in Laguna! Our first stop was one of the coves by Laguna State Beach where we adventured onto some rocks to get some unique vantage points. Next we traveled over by the Montage Laguna Beach to Treasure Island Cove. We wandered around on the tide pools and under the archway that graces that beautiful beach. Our last stop was Victoria Beach! With it's famed Pirate Tower, Victoria beach is a true treasure in SoCal. I loved photographing the uniqueness of this beach, and the red dress Amanda choice made a statement all on it's own! It was a wonderful engagement session full of laughter and fun, and I am very excited for their wedding this summer!

Gillian and Jordan - Yosemite National Park Wedding - Elopements - Glacier Point Photographer - Majestic Hotel

Before working with Gillian and Jordan, I didn't know if I would meet a couple who both would be as crazy as I am about spending all day out exploring and taking photos! We started out this beautiful day in Yosemite National Park by meeting up at 6:30am to have a first look by 7:00am at a beautiful bridge outside the Yosemite Majestic Hotel. Gillian looked stunning, and had even done her own hair and makeup starting at 3am! They exchanged their personal vows together by the river, wanting the moment to be just with the two of them before the ceremony. It was a beautiful moment in the midst of a stunning view! After this exchange, we made sure to hit some of the highlight spots such as Yosemite Falls and the Tunnel View before the crowds came out in full force. Then it was time to head up to Glacier Point for the ceremony! Up above the valley, we had a gorgeous view of Half Dome and the roaring waterfalls! Gillian and Jordan's family and a few close friends gathered with them to witness and celebrate their ceremony. There were 20 people in all, and I was closely acquainted with half of them as Gillian was the youngest of three, all of whom got married one year after the other, and for whose weddings I was the photographer! It all started with the eldest, Tiffany and her husband, Mike, followed by the middle, Sean and his wife, Caitlin, and now it was Gillian and Jordan! I loved having all of them together again, and loved being a part of another special day for this amazing family! They are not only clients, but they have welcomed me into their family, and I love them all so very much! 

 After the ceremony we took more photos at Glacier Point then went back down to hit up a few additional locations in Yosemite Valley. We had been going for 7 solid hours already jumping from place to place, so we decided to take a break and regroup at the Yosemite Majestic Hotel. When we met back up, we took some photos around the hotel, and started the reception! Food, drinks, toasts, and the traditional dances all commenced, and it was a fun and intimate reception! We even took a little bit of time at sunset to take some group photos and a few additional photos of Gillian and Jordan! At the end of the day we had spent 14 hours running around Yosemite, and Gillian and Jordan were still smiling by the end of it! I was amazed as usually I am the one holding back because I don't want to wear my clients out, but these two were right there with me the whole time! And it was a joy to spend the day with Gillian and Jordan who were so happy to be together out in a place they loved so much! Jordan had grown up going to Yosemite, and now it will always be a very special place for them together. Here in Yosemite National Park they vowed to love and cherish one another and to be partners always! And may they live happily as adventurers for ever after!

Hiro and Veronique - Ritz Carlton Wedding - Dana Point Photographer - Strands Beach - Sunset Photos

Hiro and Veronique got in touch with me about a month before their wedding saying that they were having a small weekday elopement style wedding with only their immediate family. It was going to be at the Ritz Carlton in Laguna Niguel, and I was very excited about it! It was a beautiful day in Laguna Niguel, and I loved seeing their immediate family come together to support them! The ceremony was beautiful up on the cliffside overlooking the ocean. Veronique's father walked her down the aisle to meet her groom, and the mothers beamed on and wiped the occasional tear as they watched their son and daughter get married. After the ceremony we took photos around the Ritz Carlton, and made our way to Strands Beach in Dana Point. The sunset was glorious full of gorgeous clouds and pastel colors. We made the most of our time there enjoying the colors and scenery for their wedding day. It was as if it was a personal wedding gift to them! Congratulations Hiro and Veronique! May your life together be filled with days even more beautiful than this one!

Highlights of 2017 - Destination Wedding Photographer - Travel Photographer - Yosemite - Channel Islands - SoCal - NorCal

At the end of the year it is good to look back on all you have done, and where you have been! I was blessed to be able to travel all over California from San Diego to Yosemite to San Francisco to the Channel Islands off the coast of Santa Barbara and many places in between! Each place had it's own beauty, and each place was made wonderful by the amazing couples that chose that spot for their wedding day! I was lucky enough to be chosen as their photographer, and to be able to document each of their unique love stories! What I love most is capturing their stories in a way that shows the beauty and love they have together! 2017 was a great year filled with many wonderful and adventurous couples, and I cannot wait to see what 2018 has to bring!

Kaitlyn and David - Temecula Creek Inn Wedding - OC Wedding Photographer

It was a beautiful day at Temecula Creek Inn for the morning of Kaitlyn and David's wedding! And that was just the start of this wonderful day where these two would pledge their love and lives to one another. Surrounded by their bridesmaids and groomsmen, the two of them spent their getting ready times in laughter and fun. And as the time for the ceremony drew near, they stole away for a quick moment together. David waited on the outside of the historic stone house at Temecula Creek Inn, and Kaitlyn stood inside the doorway just out of sight. She reached out her hand to hold his, and the tears began to flow. This was their moment before walking down the aisle to touch and to speak together, but to wait to see one another for a few minutes more. Afterwards, the time for the ceremony began, and the look on David's face was priceless as he watched his bride walk down the aisle. More tears flowed, and their smiles lit up the ceremony. I loved seeing the raw emotion that could not be contained as these two soulmates said their vows to one another. Their families have been best friends for all of their lives, and they grew up playing together and going on family vacations. A few years ago, they fell for one another on a family vacation! It was a beautiful story, and now a new chapter has begun with these two becoming one. After the ceremony, we had a great time taking photos of the two of them, and soon started the party at the reception! Dancing and laughter rang through the night, and everyone had an amazing time. It was such a privilege to be a part of their special day, and I know they will have an amazing life together! Congratulations to Kaitlyn and David, and cheers to best friends forever!
