[photographing people - moments - life]

I love photographing elopements and was so happy to have the opportunity to photograph Eduardo and Stacy as they said their “I Do’s”.  The San Diego Courthouse and surrounding Waterfront Park have become a favorite locations to photograph newlyweds.

I love working in new locations! Alana, Justin and their sons make for one beautiful family and the fall colors at Eagle Mountian Lake did not disappoint!

Talk about a throwback! I was so excited when Molly and Tom contacted me for family portraits in Laguna Beach. Molly used to babysit me when I was a kid and I even attended her wedding where I probably took my first wedding photo ever. A lot has changed in the 20+ years since “Aunt Molly” was Bedford’s most sought after sitter. Now she and Tom have an absolutely beautiful family and I am so happy to have worked with them!

This was a dream wedding!  I first met Katherine and Paul through a good friend and when we started talking about their big day I started counting down the days.  Katherine has a relative that owns a winery in Napa Valley that offered to let her use vineyard and barn for her wedding.  Katherine did an exceptional job with turning the barn and venue into a dream wedding venue.  Katherine and Paul, being the outdoorsy people that they are, decided to give their friends, family, and photographer (me! :) the option to camp out on the vineyard property after the wedding.  The next morning I woke up to the sound of sheep Baaaah-ing from my camp spot on top of a grassy hill overlooking the vineyard and lake.  I will forever remember this experience and am so happy to have been able to document Katherine and Paul’s special day!

I am so excited to have been featured in the Orange County edition of Ceremony Magazine for Laci and Bub’s Wedding!  Check out the spread!

 

Special thanks to Laci, Bub and Gina Oddo from Coto de Caza!
