It was a gloriously breezy and sunny day in Agua Dulce, CA, and Chris and Ellie were getting married. The day was perfectly filled in the most beautiful ways- filled with joy, filled with color, filled with laughter, filled with tears, filled with prayer, filled with love. Ellie and Chris decided to not see each other before the ceremony but instead chose to do a “fake” first look where they could pray with each other without seeing each other. One of my favorite moments of the day was getting ready to take that “fake” first look photo, seeing Chris’s anxious face and Ellie’s excited grin. The second she reached out and held his hand from the other side of the barn door, the biggest smile I have ever seen crossed Chris’s face. He didn’t have to see her physically, but he knew his beautiful bride was just a few feet away, anxiously awaiting with him the moment when they would become husband and wife. It’s that kind of simple yet beautiful love that was so present that day. From the colorful flowers, the incredible dancers, the home cooked food and the beautiful venue- this day made a lasting impact on me. Thank you Ellie and Chris for giving me the honor of photographing your dearly special day.
Also, a HUGE shout out to the wonderful Bridgette Ambrose Photography for second shooting for me on this special day.
I have this friend. Her name is Jayme and she is ridiculously talented. She can sing like no one’s business and has the most charming and welcoming personality. When she contacted me to take some current head shots for her I was over the moon excited. We did this shoot in two parts, one for more professional photos and one of more laid back, casual photos. Even though it was a bit chilly (we shot these a few months back in the winter), she was such a trooper and we had a blast. At one point she rustled through her bag and pulled out this old set of vintage headphones and asked if we should take any photos with them. Ummm, yes, please?! She was such a dream to work with and I know that wherever her career takes her she will touch so many people’s lives through her incredible gift of song. Wishing you all the best Jayme!
Hello there everyone, and welcome to my brand new official website! After months of building my work on my previous blogsite, I figured it was about time to switch over to an official website. Poke around and let me know what you think!
Onto something even MORE exciting… Ellie and Chris are engaged! I’ve known Ellie for years and when Chris came along I knew instantly that they were the perrrrfect fit for one another. I could not be more excited for the two of them as they start this journey together as husband and wife. We took these photos months ago, but I’ve been secretly saving this photoshoot to premiere on my brand new website. I figured this would be perfect timing to show as these two love birds tie the knot on saturday. I couldn’t be more excited to photograph their special day! Thank you Ellie and Chris for allowing me to capture your love.
Aaaand without further ado… here are Ellie and Chris.
