Alex & Spencer // The Ruby Street Wedding

Alex and Spencer got married on a hot day in late May, but the two of them were so happy that I don't think they even noticed the warm weather! Their joy was truly contagious. They smiled nonstop and made their wedding day unique to the two of them - which I absolutely loved! They included their pup, Nugget, lots of colorful details, and they had the best first dance ever. We kicked off their day together at Elysian Park, made a very quick pitstop at murals in Echo Park, and then celebrated at The Ruby Street. This was such a fun one to capture!

Cat & Darren // Engaged in Venice Beach

Cat and Darren's engagement session was such a blast to photograph! They pulled a couch into their backyard (beneath bougainvillea, no less!) so we had a perfect spot to take portraits with their sweet kitty, Kaboo. The three of us couldn't stop laughing! After Kaboo's modeling debut we walked around Abbott Kinney Blvd and stopped at some fun murals before going to the beach for sunset at a classic So-Cal lifeguard stand. Venice is full of such color and interesting backdrops, and Cat and Darren are definitely kindred spirits of mine! I can't wait for their wedding next April at Ebell of Long Beach!

Ryann & Nick // Pioneertown Wedding

Ryann and Nick's wedding was such a dream day to capture! These two love to travel and road trip, so they decided to make their wedding into an adventure all its own. They drove from Round Top, Texas (where they own a vintage home goods & furniture store called Townsend Provisions) and found an amazing Air B&B in Pioneertown for their intimate wedding. The weather could not have been more perfect - it was a rare Southern California day with lots of cloud coverage - which Ryann especially appreciated since she's also a photographer! There was zero cell phone reception and everyone was so joyful and present. We also had the pleasure of taking some portraits at the Stargazing Desert Retreat, which is one of the coolest places ever. The three of us finished up the night at Pappy & Harriet's, where they enjoyed dinner with their loved ones while I drove on home to Los Angeles. I LOVED the laid-back vibe and intimacy of Ryann & Nick's day and am so excited to share some favorites here!
