There is so much I just LOVE about this wedding. First…I love this couple, Lauren and Jonathan. You may remember these two from our New York engagement shoot a few months back. They are both so kind, positive and incredibly in love with each other. The picture of them at the altar where Jonathan is just BEAMING says it all. I absolutely LOVED shooting at the Crane Estate in Massachusetts. I’m SO glad these two decided to see each other before to have time to take pictures around this awesome property. You would never know it from these images but we went into this day with pretty much 100% chance of rain. One of Lauren’s bridesmaids happened to be a meteorologist and even she couldn’t give us any hope. I was so sad for Lauren because I had scouted the property and knew there was so many incredible backdrops outside of the estate…especially the outdoor location of her ceremony. I have to say, Lauren handled all of this bad news like a champ. Seriously, she was the calmest bride ever and insisted even if they got rained out, it was going to be ok. Side note, she’s a critical care doctor in NYC so that might have something to do with her uber calmness throughout it all. Anyway, we pulled out the purple umbrellas and headed out to shoot, God smiled, the rains stopped and here’s a look at this beautiful couple and their incredible outdoor wedding at the Crane Estate!
I am so happy to finally be able to share Vidhi and Datesh’s gorgeous Indian wedding in Newport Beach, CA. This wedding was shot by one of our associate photographers Brandon, who did such a great job capturing this incredible day. (for more associate photographers info…click here.) Vidhi and Datesh wanted a wedding that was rich in their heritage and the beautiful traditions! I just love how these two transformed their looks and the theme from the festive afternoon outdoor ceremony to the Great Gatsby evening reception. The ceremony was bold and vibrant with a lot of reds and gold. The reception was regal and edgy with rich art deco accents…I loved Vidhi’s black and gold dress! The end result made for an incredible, completely unique day. At the end of the day, it was just a stunning wedding with a STUNNING couple. Congratulations Vidhi & Datesh, we were so honored to be a part of your amazing day! xox
There are so many fun engagement shoots I need to catch up on and post here. I LOVE this time with my couples to really get a know them and have the chance to shoot together before the wedding! Jessica and Charlie chose to have their engagement shoot at Blackberry Farm in the Great Smoky Mountains, which was also the site of their beautiful wedding. Jessica is so incredibly stunning, and her classic but fashion forward style made for such a unique engagement session AND wedding day. I really adore these two and can’t wait to share more! Here’s just a few of my favorites from both days!
Aren’t they gorgeous?!? I just KNEW their wedding was going to be equally as beautiful! Here are some of my favorites! I just loved her dress, her hair and her choice of bridesmaids dresses. So her…so unique!
Stay tuned for more of their beautiful wedding!
There’s something really romantic and enchanting about The Ojai Valley Inn. Every time I am there I am in awe of it’s rustic, natural beauty in the mountains with breathtaking views. It was the perfect backdrop for Leyla and Sean’s beautiful wedding. These two are beautiful, so laid back and incredibly artistic. Their day was so incredibly unique and completely reflective of this beautiful couple’s artistic style and nature. Jill La Fleur completely transformed the barn and it’s rustic elements with beautiful arrangements and added some modern elements to fit Leyla’s vision. From the smallest lavender floral on the butter dish to the succulent wall installation over the seating card table, the details were gorgeous. Also…I LOVED her Vera Wang dress, it was so feminine and delicate but with that raw edge!
Here are a few of my favorite’s from this amazing day…
this one pretty much sums up how incredible this day was…

I am so excited to share Kelsey & Andy’s beautiful wedding at the Terranea Oceanfront Resort in Rancho Palos Verdes, California. This was a day all about celebrating big with family and friends. With over 400 guests and some of the best entertainment I’ve ever experienced at a wedding…it was one HUGE party! It was exactly as Kelsey and Andy wanted it. Exactly how they had both dreamed (yes, even Andy had a vision for the day.) With stunning flowers, pink, blush and gold accents and a beautiful ballroom, I had so much fun capturing this day and all of these incredible people.
I loved this wedding party and the flower girls and ring bearer…so adorable! I just love shooting during the “getting ready” time!
