Joshua Tree Engagement Session

Joshua Tree National Park is one of my absolute FAVORITE places for wedding or engagement photography. I mean C’MON - this scenery?? Unreal! But what is even more amazing than the location are ALWAYS the people I get to photograph in them.

When Jamie and Logan’s email hit my inbox - I knew it was meant to be. These two have the sweetest most infectious personalities and when they are together it is a damn good time. When we finally met in person on the day of their adventure engagement session, it was like we were already old friends. We laughed, cried, and ran around Joshua Tree like maniacs. I am so damn thankful for amazing people that trust me completely and allow me to do what I love. The result? Photos that capture their personalities, their essence, and their love for each other.

Palm Springs Engagement Session

Palm Springs Engagement Session

Palm Springs is one of my absolute favorite places to photograph! Whether it’s a wedding or engagement session, there is something about the desert Palm Springs lighting that is completely different from anywhere else in Southern California.

When Amira and Shahed reached out to me for their engagement photos, I immediately knew I would hit it off with these two. They’re hilarious, cool, and totally and completely in love with each other. Even better, we discovered that we live literally two blocks from each other! Whaaat??? Insane.

Even though it was 116 degrees on the day of our shoot, these two were AWESOME and killed it!!! We had so much fun running around Palm Springs, including a quick stop at the Moorten Botanical Gardens.

SmogShoppe Los Angeles Wedding

SmogShoppe in Los Angeles is likely one of the coolest wedding venues I have ever been to. What was once a 1980s smog-check center, SmogShoppe is now a solar-powered indoor/outdoor haven for desert plants, vertical gardens and chic vintage furnishings. It is quintessentially California in every way and I freakin’ LOVE IT.

From the moment I met Marivic and Anthony, I knew we would be a great fit for each other. These two high school sweet hearts are love Disney, musicals, and compliment each other with the perfect blend of sarcasm and hilarious fun. We had a BLAST running around their hometown of Torrance for their engagement shoot.

When it came to their wedding day, it was nothing less than beautiful. Surrounded by their family and friends, their wedding was filled with so much love and joy. I am so honored to have had the incredible job of capturing their memories.

Beverly Hills Courthouse Elopement

Beverly Hills Courthouse Elopement

The Beverly HIlls Courthouse and City Hall is the perfect backdrop for an intimate elopement. Close to the bustle of Beverly HIlls, the stunning art deco architecture is truly a hidden Beverly HIlls gem. This bohemian styled elopement shoot at the Beverly Hills Courthouse and City Hall was an absolute DREAM. We walked a few blocks down to the Beverly Gardens Park where they have the most AMAZIINNNGGG cactus garden EVER! Allll the boho vibes.
