Counting down the days till I get to capture these two again ❤️
Everything about this photo😻
nothin’ but smiles & giggles from these cuties💛
Happy anniversary to these two lovebirds! Look at their excitement towards each other!
If you're not barefoot, then you're overdressed. 💦🏝💙
Off to this purdy island tomorrow for some more wedding magic🤙🏻
I LOVE real flowers, but I also love when my brides do something different & my bride Bri’s bouquet was so cool and will last forever! Any guesses on what her bouquet was made out of?? 💐
Everything about Saturday was effortless and came together perfectly ❤ (probably because @esselleweddings
is amazingggg). Previews going on the stories soooon 😘
fall, thanks for showing up today. 🍂✨ (also @jess___poulter
is the prettiest human alive.)
Dancing in the moonlight🌛
Those clouds were up to no good this evening! Fun shoot with Kelsey and Todd!
I underestimated how much this bridal party can pop bottles... good thing they did this in their getting ready outfits & good thing I brought another shirt. Laughing at the two bridesmaids hiding behind the bride. 😂 🍾
True story: right after taking this shot, I stepped backwards and tripped over a rock and completely ate it. Like fell completely to the ground...no grace about it at all. Laughing so hard my stomach hurt with these two was one of my favorite moments of this day 😂 If you haven’t completely eaten it at some point during a shoot, you’re not really an adventurous photographer... right?
Still swooning over how cute these two lovebirds were the other night! This photo totally takes me back to Alex’s giggles & Travis smile when he looked at her! ✨
Some of the most beautiful emotion I have ever witnessed has been during wedding ceremonies. The way two people who have been through so many mountains to get where they are, is so touching. The way two people in love look at their partner for everything that they are, and feeling that person is perfect in every way for them is my favorite. The feeling that someone sees you and thinks you are the most beautiful person even in all your imperfections is the best feeling in the world, and Kinna and Tyler encompassed all this and more.

I think we've been preaching the wrong message in the solo entrepreneur / creative business world: The "show up everyday" mentality is great, but it's not being preached a long side of maintaining a balanced life. I dropped off the face of Instagram for a bit. Call it what you want: self care, work life balance, or, what it is, BEING HUMAN. You see, we didn't quit our jobs to become photographers or creatives just to feel bad when we don't feel like posting Instagram... when we don't feel like doing our craft.... when we just need a break. -- You can't let your business run your life... YOU CAN'T LET SOCIAL MEDIA RUN YOUR LIFE. I know it's tough: we are all competing for a little voice on this platform and in the business world, but that little number on your profile, yes that one that tells you how many followers you have, doesn't mean jack shit. Excuse my french, but there's no better way to say it. Focus on creating good content because you love it... not to gain another number. And if creating good content means you need a break, then grab some tacos, Chinese, wine, takeout, a nap whatever it is and let go of the guilt that you feel for simply being a human that needs rest. You matter. Your health matters.
Nothin’ but love and a whole lot of Ocean. 😍🌊
When you leave the 7 kids at home and run off to Hawaii for a work staycation 🙌🏻
Getting ready to say “I do”
It’s all about perspective.
Here’s what I mean. I have to fix my car YET again and it’s going to be very very expensive. Car problems are never convenient and always frustrating. Yet, I was sitting at work today listening to one of my coworkers cry about how her mom could die at any moment because she has cancer. Life is tough. We all have problems. There is always something worse out there and there is also an opportunity to find beauty in the brokenness. I challenge you to find the worst thing in your life right now and eradicate its power with one positive thing. Whatever you’re going through, you are strong enough.
Last nights elopement was nothing short of perfect. I truly adore all of my sweet brides and grooms and cannot thank you enough for letting me be a part your day.
A little jealous that Aslan shot this dreamy engagement session solo. How stinkin beautiful are these two together? 😭😍
So much love for these two!
“All that you are is all that I’ll ever need”
Throwing it back to this super cool shoot because these two are getting married in 2 weeks & 4 days!! 🙌🏻🙌🏻
Sending out timelines, contracts and galleries today before I head back to California this week ✨
I got to witness these two get engaged Sunday morning. We arrived just a few minutes before they did! It was lightly sprinkling outside and we had to run and hide behind a tree before she saw us! I tripped and almost face planted lol right when Jacob bent down on one knee we came out from behind the tree to capture their moment. It was so sweet! This proposal session will be on the blog soon with the rest of the photos!
