{ carrie + terrence // oak canyon nature center wedding }

July 7th, 2015

I still can’t get over just how pretty this day was! Carrie and Terrence were married amongst a grove of oak trees in a day that was just such a joy to document. I appreciated how they really trusted me when it came to photos and allotted tons of time in the day for portraits, resulting in what are possibly some of my favorite portraits ever! As you can see, I did a terrible job of narrowing them down for this blog post, but I just can’t get enough of that amazing sparkly light, those dreamy colors, and all that joyful emotion. Carrie and Terrence really do have the sweetest personalities and I feel so lucky to know them!

Hope you enjoy this peek into their day!

July 1st, 2015

I had so much fun with Van and Chris for their session, it seriously felt like hanging out with old friends! As ridiculously good looking these two are on the outside, let me just tell you that they have the hearts to match – they’re some of the nicest people you’ll ever meet and are just as fun as these photos suggest! We started off at the LA Arboretum and finished up at the historic Colorado Bridge. I love how we were able to combine the whimsy of the garden with the more dramatic look of the bridge, while keeping it all tied together with that light-filled, romantic feel that I adore :)

Can’t wait for their pretty summer wedding next month!

Clara initially contacted me for professional headshots, and I was so excited when I asked if she preferred something against a backdrop in the studio or an outdoor more organic setting, and she chose the latter. We headed to one of my favorite pretty nature spots and after getting some of the more standard shots, she happily let me get a bit more creative and I so love how these images came out. I remembered after this session the importance of “just because” portraits – it’s wonderful to celebrate milestone occasions with a portrait session, but there’s a beauty in capturing just the in-between pieces of this particular time in your life. Just simple beautiful portraits celebrating you.

Clara is such a beauty inside and out and we had so much fun a this session! If a “just because” session is something you’d be interested in, please feel free to reach out to me here!
