Personal Style // Emily & Fin’s Spring 2019 Collection

I've been a longtime fan of the UK-based clothing company Emily & Fin and was so blown away by their 2019 Spring California Dreaming collection that I had trouble narrowing down my selection to only three pieces! These styles are classic with a modern twist, feminine, and SO flattering. I've worked with Emily & Fin in the past (remember their Abigail dress?) and love that every piece I own from them includes pockets!

Life // Our Paris Anniversary Session

Happy Valentine's Day!! I first developed a love for this holiday thanks to my mom, Trudi, who always did something extra special to celebrate and show her love for my brother and I. Since it's pouring rain here in Los Angeles today, I'm going to time-travel back to a sunny morning in Paris with Mike. We did a photo session in the Marais district days before our first anniversary, and I cherish these pictures so very much. Katie Mitchell Photography was a true delight to work with - she was so fun and cheerful, and I felt like we made a lovely new friend! I'm also obsessed with her color processing!

This first photo is, quite possibly, my favorite photo ever of Mike and I. We spotted this vintage Vespa and Katie asked the owner if we could use it for a photo. He was very kind and made my dreams come true! We kicked off the morning at the Jardin du Luxembourg and then stopped at Cafe Judy for a latte and outfit change. Might I add that I started this session with zero coffee because nothing was open yet (ah, PARIS), which was quite the feat for this caffeine-addict! After Cafe Judy we wandered around the Marais district and finished up the morning at the National Archives. Mike and I had so much fun on this session, and I'm already dreaming of our next trip to the city of love!

2018 Wedding Photography Roundup

Happy 2019! Since my blogging frequency wasn't exactly stellar last year, I wanted to share a giant roundup of my favorite engagement and wedding photography of 2018. This past year was pretty crazy and I shot the most weddings I've photographed in a single year yet - including a triple header (Thursday through Saturday) that spanned 750 miles in California!

My clients were incredibly kind, colorful, and fun. Some of my absolute favorite shoots ever happened in 2018, and I'm very grateful to have found such creative kindred spirits and to get to do this for my job! The long chronological post starts after these first three favorite pics!
