{ megan + nevin // ambassador mansion wedding }

January 28th, 2015

This wedding! You might as well cozy up with a cup of tea because this is going to be quite the post. But I promise you’ll love every last bit of it! Megan & Nevin wanted a day that incorporated both their cultures {Indian & British/American} and held two ceremonies, accompanied by an English tea and Indian dinner. There was an elephant, a procession of dancing to the altar, and a beautiful Hindu ceremony. There were opulent florals, long dessert tables, seersucker suits, and romantic vows. And to top it all off, there was the most lovely blush pink dress you ever did set your eyes on. The Ambassador Mansion, with its marble floors and wide green lawns, provided the perfect backdrop for this immensely romantic & jubilant day.

A huge thank you to Style Me Pretty for featuring this wedding! Head over to the post here to see & read more!

I realized it’s been awhile since I’ve done a personal post and thought I’d share a bit of what I’ve been up to outside of shooting weddings & sessions! Though I don’t bring my SLR {which I very professionally refer to as my “big camera”} everywhere I go, I do always have my phone on hand and love documenting pieces of everyday life. Be sure to follow me on instagram for more!

a peek into a random day’s workspace: tea (a daily must!), cuties & inspiration via west elm’s latest catalog // this is one of the canvases that hangs in my studio – lots of meetings with awesome couples recently!

over the weekend we had a picnic at a winery! there was live music & dancing and we munched on turkey caprese sandwiches, cauliflower soup & earl grey chocolate macarons. (by the way cauliflower is the new brussel sprouts guys.)

last month i hung out with my friend & fellow photog serena in santa barbara. we had coffee at the gorgeous santa barbara public market, walked down state street to the beach, and did a bit of wine tasting!

i am so obsessed with this flower crown. i have this idea that flower crowns should be acceptable daily wear. you with me? // loved this lunch at faith & flower in downtown LA. it was voted winner of “most stunning new restaurant” by eater and also happened to win the “OMG it’s so cute” award by me. highly recommended!

I hope to be better about doing these little updates in the future, but in the meantime, you can follow me here! Hope everyone’s week is off to a great start!

{ li-ann + james // santa barbara courthouse wedding }

January 13th, 2015

Up the 101, twisting alongside the ocean, into the pretty little city called Santa Barbara lies the most beautiful courthouse you may have ever seen. I was so excited to photograph Li-Ann & James’ little elopement there on the lawn of the courthouse, surrounded just by their closest family and friends. We were then free to roam around the beautiful grounds for portraits, incorporating the lovely arches, bougainvillea-framed doorways and of course the bell tower on top.

These types of sweet intimate weddings are always some of my favorites and I was so so honored to document it!
