I feel like I might start tearing up as I write this. I am constantly in awe of the humans that the universe puts me in relationship with. At yesterday's meeting, the couple and I talked about the gore and glory of womanhood. At my session this weekend, we talked about insecurities and wearing your heart and mind on your sleeves. At this session in Joshua Tree, Lauren, Hayley and myself went to conversational depths that I haven't even reached with any of my couples on the very first day upon meeting them. I am in absolute and complete awe of the vulnerability, the rawness and the truth that I get to experience with my couples. The open mindedness and the soulful nature even through our subtle differences. I feel so unbelievably lucky to be paired with those so beautifully similar to me, in all the important ways that there is to be connected to two separate individuals simultaneously. I have been striving now more than ever to redefine who I am with and around my couples. To not shy away from being completely genuine, no matter what that looks like. To create a space for myself and my couples to feel at ease to be exactly who they are. I was always myself but now I strive to push that deeper, and farther. I like to bring up the uncomfortable and conversational taboos, and truly get to know them. How could we possibly create real and true imagery together if I am anything but reaching my fingers so deeply into the souls I am trying to connect with. We can talk about being 'authentic' but let's actually do it eh? Let's not be afraid to come off eccentric or human. I am ready. Ready to profoundly connect with those who are ready to let me in. And to those who already have, you are forever a part of me.
I am so impressed that @one_makeup_artistry walked down the aisle in these shoes! When I got pregnant I stopped wearing heels ...and now I can't bring myself to wear them anymore🙈
How many of you wear heels on a consistent basis? And how do you do it?!

How many of y’all are doing a happy dance today because the weather is warmer and the sun is shining!?
I’m seeing post from people at home saying it’s in the 70s! I’m in Southern California right now and it’s SO cold! I wasn’t prepared for coldness here, so I may be treating myself to a new sweater 😉
BLOG LOVE. after adding another pup to the pack and closing out an insane season of 70+ weddings full of so much love, it was time for these wolves to get lost and wander again. head over to our link in profile to check out our adventure. sweet shot captured by jake.
Currently in Del Mar shooting a week long conference and I keep getting flashbacks to Peter and Veronica’s wedding I photographed not too far from here. Such a beautiful area!

There are so many lovely details around every corner at San Francisco City Hall, which is why it's one of my favorite SF wedding venues. ⠀
Gorgeous light, Beaux-Arts architecture, what more could you ask for?⠀
What's your favorite SF wedding venue?
The lovely Shelbey Tamayo was the first of her siblings and cousins to get married. On top of the Dominican blue water and out of this world resort venue, the wedding was so special because of family. They were all there, right beside her, making her laugh as she tried to keep a perfect model face out of the bridal suite window.
Alex and Veronica. Their bit of magic (aka engagement session) is up on my BLOG.
Feeling grateful to come across people like these two and grateful to be given the opportunity to document beautiful moments in peoples lives. A privilege I never take for granted.
There is something about fall weddings that will always have a special place in my heart.

Hello friends! This has been long overdue, but we are FINALLY live! Starting tomorrow, we'll be posting daily. Or well, almost daily. That's the plan at least. =P Really proud of the many weddings that have been keeping us busy, and can't wait to start sharing them. :)
It was freezing out, we could see the storm coming in and the rain in the distance, but I asked them if they could brave the weather a little longer because I could tell by the clouds the sunset was going to be epic. They were troopers, and I must say, I’m pretty sure it was worth it 🙌🏼
This was so much fun!! Such a chance shot... the access to the roof was only allowed if you had the penthouse suite, lucky for us the hotel gifted this to the BEST MAN because his room was delayed, grateful for mistakes like that! #capturecreatephoto#couplesportrait#hoteldeanza
