I kept an eye on the weather for this session. The chance of rain was 90%, but not until closer to actual sunset. I checked in with Molly early in the week in case it did rain, and I was extremely excited when she said that if it wasn’t absolutely pouring, they would love to keep the date since it sounded like it would be great winter shoot. I love connecting with that kind of adventurous spirit. Our time together was cold (36 degrees) but perfect, and to top it off, it snowed! We were so high up in the mountains that we missed the rain completely and got to enjoy the most beautiful snowfall. With the love of nature and each other, here are some images from the winter forest engagement session of Molly and Dan.
Meena and Steve had a week long celebration of their love. I was so honored to capture their beautiful ceremony at the Malibu Hindu Temple, and reception at the Spanish Hills Country Club the following day. Here is a sneak peek!

I was incredibly humbled when Rachel and Andrew contacted me and expressed their appreciation for my work. It's one of the best feelings when a client is comfortable and trusts you. It opens up a level of artistry and freedom to make some magic happen. Not only that, but their mirthful love for each other and eloquent sense of humor was such a delight to be around, and really embraced the feeling for the day. Thank you so much Rachel and Andrew. I'm so grateful to have met you and witness your beautiful day!

I always want a location to deeply speak to a client. It generates an energy of connectedness, and vibrates towards the camera. Topanga Canyon was carefully chosen, and the session, feminine divine.
Laughter filled the air and echoed off the gorgeous 1920's built walls of Ebell Long Beach during this wedding. The energy of Ariel and Jeremy's light, love, history and new beginnings was electric. Everyone made each other laugh, and sometimes cry, all day, and I was definitely one of those people on the receiving end. You couldn't help it. I'm so incredibly happy for them and was honored to have witnessed their new journey together.
