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!

A Beachside Proposal Story-Montage Hotel in Laguna Beach

On Labor Day, I had the privilege of photographing a beautiful proposal between Eric Johnson and his beautiful girlfriend, Melissa Labbadia. The setting was the Montage Hotel in Laguna Beach, and it was a gorgeous day with perfect weather!  Eric's plan was to stay at the Montage with Melissa, then go out to dinner after a sunset walk on the cliff above the beach. Little did Melissa know that at a beautiful cliff overlook, Eric planned on asking her to spend the rest of her life with him. They came to the overlook where the Montage had set up a heart made out of tea lights, and after a few minutes on the overlook, Eric went down to one knee and asked Melissa to marry him. She said yes and it was a beautiful time of joy, tears, and love! I loved capturing this special moment that they will remember for the rest of their lives, it was such a precious moment that I will cherish as well! 

Congratulations to the soon to be Mr. and Mrs. Johnson!
