Carmen + Steven Pretty much the most perfect woodsy, fairytale, halloween themed elopement! If you know me at all, you know that I’m obsessed with all things witchy, woodsy, fairy vibes!! I think that in another life I was a little woodland creature who lived among the mushrooms on the forest floor…. So yeah, this […]
There’s nothing I love more than full trust from my clients. We had worked together to create a vision board full of timeless, romantic photos with a bit of anit-bride film vibes to them, so I knew the vibe we were going for, but on the day of, these two gave me full control and let me do my thing and not to toot my own horn, but I think we kind of killed it. They were down to try all my ideas and it was so fun having their friends and family follow us around as paparazzi, cheering them on.

If you are looking for an edgy glam, editorial in the desert vibe, look no further. These two absolutely freaking KILLED their engagement shoot. We were going for ‘Stranded in the Desert’ but make it FASHION. Mission Accomplished?!?! Yep.
We shot three looks and just wait until you see them all.This shoot is full of bridal outfit inspo, with soo many fun bridal accessories!!! They truly nailed it and I’ve never been more excited to share a session!! The perfect mix of glam, vintage, edgy, and editorial. 10/10.
This funky, editorial shoot was inspired by the idea of “This backdrop isn’t big enough for the two of us” and the challenge was to creatively pose and shoot all within the bounds of a 4 foot backdrop. (For those that have never shot multiple subjects in front of a backdrop, 4 feet is VERY small).

Finally the day has come that these two make it onto the blog. My two longest clients <3
I first photographed these two all the way back in 2011… They were the first couple to step in front of my lens and It’s been such an honor to photograph so many different phases of life and milestones for these two. Photographing their engagement photos felt like such a full circle moment for me and my business. I could cry thinking about how much I love these two and how they’ve supported me and my business over the years.
They were going for “casual, introspective, we’re a work in progress, but we’re having a good time” vibes. As soon as we got off the call I was flooded with ideas. The idea behind their podcast is “we’re just two friends casually having the conversations nobody wants to have”. Talking about the weird shit, the deep, sticky, wacky, personal stuff – but all while keeping it casual and not taking things too seriously.

I’m starting this blog off by saying, if you haven’t driven north on Highway 1 from San Francisco to Sea Ranch, you must. It is STUNNING. Seriously, one of the most spectacular drives I’ve driven in a long time (and I drive a lot). Plus, Sea Ranch is the most charming, architecturally beautiful little coastal town that will make anyone swoon. Plus, it’s the perfect place for a lil elopement!
It was seriously dreamy, and soo cozy and inviting. They laid on the blanket, got cozy and Ty read a passage from their favorite book to Jenny. My heart was pretty much bursting at this point. Then, we went climbed around on the waterfall to get the most epic bridal portraits EVERRRR. They sat on the mossy rocks, read their vows to each other and danced around in the sand. Jenny and Ty wanted to keep things chill and easy, but they still wanted to incorperate a few traditional elements into their Oregon coast elopement

These two tattoo-covered queer lovers brought literal tears to my eyes as I sat down to edit these photos. I am so proud of the end result. I have no words to describe this shoot other than it was pure magic. I’ve never witnessed so much love. These two lovers got lost in their own world, and I just got to sit back and document.
Wooowwww, where do I begin with this session?! I quite literally screamed when Sierra reached out to share her vision for their engagement session. They wanted to be extra for their engagement session, and they UNDERSTOOD THE ASSIGNMENT!!! They showed up with the best energy, ready for all the adventures. Big Sur is such an iconic location for an engagement session, and when you throw in some snazzy outfits and a vintage Jaguar, it’s just out of this world.
