Jessica and Troy kicked off this year with the most beautiful and elegant wedding at the Ojai Valley Inn and Spa. There is something magical about Ojai, and then add this sweet and stunning couple,   surrounded by incredible friends and family = perfection.  The energy of their celebration was electric, and it was so fun to experience everyone’s excitement and love for these two. Jessica & Troy, thank you for allowing me to be a part of your beautiful celebration and cheers to a lifetime of the love we all witnessed on this day!  xox

I am a believer that love conquers all. So when I heard them describe their wedding day…that this beautiful Bangladeshi Muslim girl was going to marry this Jewish American boy…I was so excited to be a part of this day! Sarah and Ben come from two very strong and vibrant cultures and were able incorporate the traditions and ceremonies from both at the gorgeous Schermerhorn Symphony hall in downtown Nashville.  They put so much thought into every little detail including the criss crossed bridge of white calla lilies at the head table to symbolize the intersection of family, culture, and religion that resulted from their marriage. It was such a moving celebration of two families embracing the love of their children. Sarah and Ben, thank you for allowing me to be a part of this very special love story! xox

Here’s a little sneak of their two day celebration…

Gigi & Owain’s wedding was a fairy tale event, but with SO many unexpected twists. They exchanged vows on a helipad with 360 views of Malibu vineyards at the gorgeous Malibu Rocky Oaks Estate. What I love most about these two is that they met at a traffic light in Los Angeles and texted/courted for months not knowing each other’s real names or occupations before their first meeting. Owain Yeoman plays one of the lead characters on the hit CBS Television Show ‘The Mentalist,’ but this was far from a stuffy hollywood event. These two put so much into making their wedding an incredible experience for their guests. From a beat-boxing harpist to blessings from a Tibetian monk…to a 100 person flash mob!  Family and friends flew in from Owain’s hometown of Wales, and his best friend officiated the wedding. It was a day filled with so much love, laughter and tears…their love for each other was incredible! Congratulations, Owain and Gigi…may you experience a lifetime of the beautiful of love that you shared on this spectacular day!! xox

A few months back I was approached by a PR firm in London about working on a “secret project” with an unnamed client, I was skeptical to say the least…and thought for sure it was a scam. Well turns out Cohn & Wolfe is in fact a real PR firm, in fact they’re a multinational company that won PR Firm of the Year for 2013. Also the “unnamed client”…NOKIA! They were reaching out to me about being the first photographer to shoot an entire wedding on their brand new Lumia 1020 41 megapixel smartphone. I’m all for pushing the creative boundaries and after researching the capabilities of this phone I was onboard although admittedly nervous! The only thing missing was the wedding. Just happens I had already started talking to Crista & Chris about photographing their destination wedding. I had met these two last June in Anguilla and I can’t say enough about how incredible they are. They both have such an adventurous spirit and were also excited about this project so it was game on! Armed with  several Nokia Lumia 1020’s, I shot Crista & Chris’ entire wedding with them at the gorgeous Capella Pedregal Resort in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.  Here’s part one of  Crista & Chris’s wedding shot with the Nokia Lumia 1020…more to share soon!
