Walnut Grove Wedding | Zoe & Yun

I was so happy when Zoe and Yun told me they were getting Married at the Walnut Grove at Tierra Rejada Farms, its one of my favorite locations! The weather was beautiful that day, and they were surrounded by their close friends and family.

I love hearing how people meet! They met online on OKCupid in 2013. Zoe emailed Yun first but Yun had just gotten off the website. A year later, Yun saw Zoe’s profile and emailed her without ever seeing Zoe’s initial email. They went to kaiten sushi (conveyor belt sushi) on their first date. Zoe said she was afraid of little round food, so they got brick toast instead of boba drinks. Many delicious meals later, they got married.

Zoe and Yun, thank you so much for letting me be a part of your special day!

Yuma Arizona, Melisa & Bill Married!

This wedding was so much fun to shoot! Melisa is my childhood friend, we were best buddies in the 6th grade, and we were obsessed with the movie The Outsiders, we would watch it over and over, “stay golden pony boy!” I watched my first MTV video at her house, Madonna! And her big sister Tina, was so cool, she would give us makeovers. We lost touch over the years, so I was so excited when she contacted me to photograph her wedding! I asked her how she met Bill, she had this to say, “Bill and I met through a mutual friend, he courted me for about three months. Would come over and make me and the kids wonderful dinners. Finally when I decided I would accept his date proposal we were set to go to dinner and a movie on a Wednesday night. He called me from the hospital and had to cancel because he had fallen while running along the river. He had broken his wrist in two places and needed surgery. About a week later he called and with his broken arm he mended my heart and took me to a wonderful dinner and made me laugh and smile.”

Melisa wanted a garden theme, and she transformed a friends backyard into the wedding of her dreams. She put so much work into all of the little details. Her cake was a bucket filled with flowers, amazing! Thanks to all of her friends and family for making me and my husband feel so welcome.

Melisa and Bill's Wedding

Palm Springs and Joshua Tree | Jillian and John

Every year I look forward to photographing these two. They always have great ideas and have such cool style. Its also really special because they don’t get to see each other very often because John is a sergeant in the Marines and is gone most of the year. I know these images mean a lot to them and I feel honored to capture these moments. Check out their Instagrams, John posts a lot of cool vintage clothes and engineer boots as well as his leather crafting VintageEngineerBoots.Check out JVONV and all of her awesome styling and she also does modeling for Pin Up Girl Clothing where the majority of her wardrobe for this shoot came from. Most of Johns wardrobe is from Mister Freedom. You can find their Madsen Bicycle HERE. Can’t wait for the next one!
