I know Im supposed to be a good photographer who loves all her weddings equally.... but Emily and Bryan's wedding might have been one of my absolute favorites of 2017 (don't tell the other weddings!)⠀ ⠀ #weddingreceptionideas #weddingtonway #backyardwedding #weddingdressshopping #californiaweddingphotographer #sandiegoweddingphotographer #sandiegowedding #malibuweddingwedding #malibuweddingphotographer #sandiegobride #malibubride #californiabride #weddinginspiration #outdoorweddingvenue #outdoorweddingreception #theknotrealweddings #thatsdarling #caratsandcake #bohobride #isaidyes #stylemepretty #isaidyes #shesaidyes #hesaidyes #engagedinsandiego #bhldn #engagementring #modernwedding #stylemepretty #heputaringonit
don't usually like to post too many of the same wedding on Instagram.... but hot damn there were so many good ones from Louise + Nate's elopement/engagement. A million and five thanks to @goodmanfilm lab for delivering the best film scans I've ever seen of my work. They make the crazy expense of film worth it. #bhldnbride #weddingdressinspiration #weddingtonway #cityhallwedding #weddingdressshopping #californiaweddingphotographer #sandiegoweddingphotographer #sandiegowedding #malibuweddingwedding #malibuweddingphotographer #sandiegobride #malibubride #californiabride #weddinginspiration #outdoorweddingvenue #outdoorweddingceremony #theknotrealweddings #thatsdarling #caratsandcake #bohobride #isaidyes #stylemepretty #isaidyes #shesaidyes #hesaidyes #engagedinsandiego #bhldn #engagementring #modernwedding #stylemepretty #heputaringonit
Hawaii was amazing and everything, but it's this guy that made it exceptional. But honestly, we could be in a dark pit and if were there it'd still be a great time. #hawaiiweddingphotographer #oahuweddingphotographer #malibuweddingphotographer #socalbride #engaged #fuji400h#pentax645 #mediumformat #justengaged#shesaidyes #sandiegophotographer#sandiegoweddingphotography#sandiegofilmphotographer#engagementphotos#sandiegoengagement#sandiegoengagementphotographer⠀⠀⠀ #sandiegophotographer#losangelesphotographer#sandiegocourthousewedding#bhldnbride #bhldn
Pretty sure I'm the luckiest photographer in the world because today I got to photograph the most attractive and sweet couple EVER. And officially, this was my last wedding of the year!⠀ ⠀ Now to bury myself in editing. Maybe I'll come up for air in a few weeks? :P⠀ (Just kidding... actually going to Hawaii in a couple of days!? So far no shoots planned... but hopefully that will change)⠀ ⠀ #sandiegoweddingphotographer #sandiegowedding #sdweddingphotographer #losangeleswedding #losangelesweddingphotographer #cityhallwedding #courthousewedding#malibuweddingphotographer #socalbride #engaged #fuji400h #pentax645 #mediumformat #justengaged #shesaidyes #sandiegophotographer #sandiegoweddingphotography #sandiegofilmphotographer #engagementphotos #sandiegoengagement #sandiegoengagementphotographer⠀⠀⠀ #sandiegophotographer #losangelesphotographer #sandiegocourthousewedding #bhldnbride #bhldn
Had the honor of capturing the wedding celebration for McKinley and Ben today! They are so full of laughter and love and it was so fun to photograph these two
So I think shooting details is one of my favorite parts of a wedding. But I only say that while I’m looking at details. Once o start looking at the happy couple interacting my favorite part changes real fast. Or like parent dances... okay maybe I just really love weddings.
I think this image is a really great example of things I love in a wedding. Bright sunlight; wild, loose, and natural; and a little bit of shiny detail. Also- she's looking at her brand new husband so there's a ton of love mixed in. ⠀ ⠀ Shot as a second for @mink_photography who is a wonderful, stupid talented human friend.
Last week, we visited Seattle and took some engagement photos for @stelliestell and Jim. The weather was amaaaaaazing and I've never seen such beautiful fall colors. (hello actual trees). Can't WAIT to go back in June!
YOU GUYS. Putting my Instagram hiatus on hold to tell you that Shayne and Kevin's wedding was this weekend and it was AMAZING. All the people involved, and the vendors who made it happen. Thanks for including me. I feel super honored.⠀ ⠀ Coordination Boss Babe: @crowned.events ⠀ Florals: @rootedflorals ⠀ video: @scalapictures ⠀
This morning I woke up to the most insane news that one of my best friends from elementary school and one of my best friends from high school (who have never met or spoken) got together and started a GoFundMe to raise some money for some of my stolen gear (because as it turns out, Insurance decided after 6 weeks of leading me on, that they're not going to cover me). I have cried SEVERAL times today because of the overwhelming support and generosity of the people I'm surrounded by. I feel super weird asking friends and family for money (especially if they're not getting photos in return!), but so many people have personally messaged me asking for the link, so I'm TEMPORARILY putting the gofundmelink in my profile. ⠀ ⠀ Here's a picture of the invitation suite and some flowers from one of (if not THE) best weddings I've ever been a part of. It's times like these that make the last month of chaos and bad luck worth it several times over. ⠀ ⠀ Friends, I really appreciate all of you.
YOU GUYS. THIS WEDDING WAS EVERYTHING. I've never cried like I did here. Or squealed as much (I tend to make weird noises when I photograph). I love Emily and Bryan so much.... and it was an absolute blessing for me to do both photography and the floral design. ⠀ I am so so so thankful, happy, and sore :P⠀
Okay, this is going to be a real long post. This whole last month has been insane. It started off with getting robbed. All of my camera equipment was taken from my inside home while we slept. I shot 5 weddings as a photographer (lots of renting and borrowing equipment). My main hard drive crashed and all of my personal photos from the last year might be lost. I did 3 weddings as a florist. 1 trip to Palm Springs for a shoot. 2 engagement sessions. 2 trips to LA, one of which was for a business workshop, which I am only just NOW having time to implement. ⠀ At the end of the workshop, they held a cocktail party. I couldn't really handle being there because all I could think about was how I could change my business, how I could start RIGHT NOW serving my clients better. And because I was physically and emotionally exhausted (and the month wasn't even half way over). I gotta be real with you. I'm not outgoing or very social. I need a LOT of sleep and alone time. I need space away from my business every once in a while to maintain my sanity. But I learned some reaaaal game changing shit from the workshop. And even though most of the time I don't feel like I have a handle on anything, I feel real good about the future. And I'm really grateful to this industry and community I've made myself apart of. ⠀ ⠀ design @chicwedding ⠀ florals @lauryllane ⠀ model @taylorsaxelby ⠀ accessories @styledbytc ⠀ rentals @sigpartyrentals⠀ napkins @modmixstudio ⠀ location @musestudiocity ⠀ Sponsored by @lensrentals ⠀ workshop @hustleandflow_workshop by @thehonsphoto
