Nicole and Ryan {wedding}

Could Nicole and Ryan BE more beautiful!? Seriously, these two are so gorgeous, and so very much in love and really, so awesome. They were married at Berghold Vineyards in Lodi, California on June 7 and it was such a joy to be a part of their wedding. I was joined by the talented Zach Anderson who second shot for me and was a fantastic burro. :)

I started off at Wine and Roses with the bride and her bridesmaids getting ready. I was seriously in love with the bathroom there (as you could tell from my previous post)and had a blast photographing all the little details. It was so fun to hang out with Nicole and her wonderful family and friends as she got ready for her wedding. Then we were off for some portraits! I had some fun with these girls for sure!

While I was with the ladies, Zach headed over to Ryan’s parents where he and his men were getting ready. I think their group pictures might be a little more – um – colorful than the brides. :) Zach did a great job with the boys!

Then it was off to Berghold for some vows and some partying! Ryan and Nicole had a beautiful ceremony! It was lovely to watch them promise their lives to each other. Then they were down the aisle, and ready to party! We did some group shots, and then it was dinner time. Their EXQUISITE meal was provided by the amazing All Seasons, All Reasons catering. Then is was off into the vineyards for some sunset bride and groom portraits.


Nicole and Ryan has one heck of a party! With a photobooth, pumping music and a crowd who was more than ready to dance it was impossible not to have a great time celebrating the new family that had been made.


Many thanks to Nicole, Ryan and your delightful family and friends. It was so wonderful being a part of your wedding! Happy forever you two!

Mirror, Mirror on the Wall…


I’m editing Nicole and Ryan’s wedding right now, and found this picture I took in the bathroom of Nicole’s suite at Wine and Roses. I kinda love it… a lot. :) The bathroom was amazing! I can’t wait to show you the pictures I took in it. :)

Things are busy around here with editing galore and trying to keep my house from looking like a bomb went off in it. Check back soon for a slideshow!

Tina and Brett are Married!

I just wanted to share this lovely picture of this lovely couple before I crawl into bed and try not to think about the fact I have a meeting with my personal trainer at 9am. Seriously! Could Tina and Brett be more beautiful? No! They can’t! Because if they were the world would implode from all the beauty! For reals!

Dustin and I had a wonderful time photographing this wedding whilst training a new assistant, Trisha who is seriously so gosh darned cool we could hardly believe it. PLUS! We got to hang out with our great friend Mike Simmons as he did their video! It was Team AWESOMENESS in action! I can’t wait for you to see more of Tina and Brett’s incredible wedding! Check back soon for the slideshow!

Ruth and Darin {day after}

Oh Ruth and Darin! I love you! I love how much you love each other, and I love your willingness to be awesome at any time. I can’t even begin to say how much fun we had doing this Day After session. We drove around Monterey, worked the full morning sun like no one’s business, ate a yummy lunch and then worked it some more! It was a joy to spend the day with Ruth and Darin and just adoring them even more. We were able to get some seriously sweet images that again, just would NOT be possible on a wedding day. We got a little wet (not too much), a little dirty (and sexy), and were able to see some marine life. All in all, the perfect day.


Thanks again to Ruth and Darin for being so blasted cool and for making time to make some seriously rockin’ images. We love you guys, and hope you love these pictures as much as we do! HUGS!
