My annual shoot with Jillian and John! We’ve had so many fun shoots over the years, and they have become such dear friends. They are now living in New Orleans, but were in Palm Springs over the holidays, so of course we had to make time for photos! They adopted a really cute mini schnauzer named Wexler, And Jillian is very passionate about her work with Schnauzer Rescue of Louisiana They have helped out so many pups. You should definitely follow John on Instagram, he is always posting such cool fashion for men, espeically if you love boots! Check out our last two shoots HERE and HERE!
I photographed Sara and Derek’s engagement photos with their pup Ben more than a year ago, you can see them HERE. Not only have they added little Honey to the mix, but they are expecting their first child. So happy for these two! I spent the morning with them at their beautiful home.
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!
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!
This post is just a tad late, but just a few weeks shy of their first year Anniversary! Sara and Ryan just happen to be my very good friends, so when they asked me to photograph their Wedding, I was super excited, but admittedly a little nervous too. Sara and Ryan are photographers too, and for whatever reason, it just made me more nervous than usual. I soon realized, as we got going, there was no reason for it, and I got into my usual groove of shooting, and it turned out to be fun and relaxed. Sara and Ryan had a private ceremony at the Santa Barbara courthouse, just those two, and my husband Louie as their witness. They were married last year in September on Friday the 13th. These two are so perfect for each other.
