Lisa and Kevin: Wedding


Last Saturday, Adam and I got to go to Birmingham, AL for Lisa and Kevin’s wedding.  Birmingham is my college town and it’s always so fun to be back in the old stomping grounds.  I have to admit the humidity was a bit of a shock for our Southern California bodies, but the day was beautiful and we loved being a part of their big day!

Lisa was one of the most laid-back brides I’ve ever seen!  She seemed so relaxed all day!




A few moments before walking down the aisle:


They’re married!!



I’ll close with my very favorite image from the reception.  I’ve been sitting at my desk here giggling out loud to myself about it … I guess it was a long day for some people!


Congratulations Lisa and Kevin!  Thanks so much for including us as part of your wedding celebration!

Coen: 1 year


Coen’s 1 year session was a morning of on-the-go!  He’s at that awesome stage where walking/running are SO much fun but totally uncontrollable.  I think I got my workout in for the day following him around!

One thing I really believe in for kid sessions is letting them take the lead.  I love just letting them be themselves and capturing that as it unfolds.  Plus, they’re usually a lot happier when we aren’t trying to force them to do something they’re not into!

Here are a few favorites of sweet Coen ~ his smile is just the best!!






I think the untied shoelaces just make this one even better!!

Jennifer and Tommy: Wedding


As promised, here is the blog about Jennifer and Tommy’s wedding in Nashville! The forecast threatened rain in the area, but it held off long enough for us to enjoy a beautiful afternoon and evening!! Getting to be a part of friends’ weddings is the best for me ~ I just get so excited!!

A few favorite details:



The beautiful bride!



Tommy hanging out with his groomsmen who are all from Orange County ~ it was so fun to have a meeting of our 2 worlds ~ Southern California and Nashville!


After the ceremony ~ officially Mr. and Mrs.!



The reception was at one of my favorite Nashville locations, Hillwood Country Club:


I love this ~ it totally looks like Jennifer is floating! And maybe she was just a little bit …



What a beautiful night for a great couple! Congratulations, you guys!!

Mary! Your photography is beautiful, and Jennifer looks amazing!

Jamie and Shane: Engagement

I promise that we do actually shoot things besides engagement sessions! I think this is 5 engagement posts in a row? It’s just that time of year … wedding pre-season … where we get to spend some more casual time with our couples.

I have to admit ~ I l-o-v-e engagement sessions. First, they are just fun for me because I get to spend some time with each couple before their big day. Plus, I feel like they are a fun “practice” for the bride and groom to get used to me and to having their picture taken.


Jamie and Shane’s engagement session was great! We love having an excuse to hang out down at the beach. Their wedding is just a couple of weeks away, so I was so glad we could squeeze in some time with them. They were naturals in front of the camera and with each other … I’m even more excited now about their wedding!!

Jennifer and Tommy: Engagement


It was the summer before my sixth grade year and I was transferring to a new school … yipes. My mom had volunteered to be our class “room mom” so we were planning a lunch date with the other room-mom-to-be and her daughter, Jennifer. I’m pretty sure I was shy … and awkward. But the happy ending to the story is that Jennifer turned out to be great, and many sleepovers, days at the lake, and dance parties later, we turned out to be great friends!! Be thankful that all of my old film pictures are safely packed away at my parents’ house … I could definitely pull out some scary stuff from the middle school awkward phase!!

Fast forward just a few undisclosed number of years later after junior high (can we just call it 10?), it has been so fun to re-connect with Jennifer as we have both landed out on the west coast in CA. Although she lives North of us, she found herself a SoCal boy and married him last weekend!

As I’ve been working on their wedding images over the past few days, I realized that I never shared their engagement images from the end of last year ~ so what better time than now!

Here are a couple of favorites from our afternoon in Laguna Beach:002_tommy




What’s that? Oh, you want to see wedding images? Ok, ok … I’ll give you one sneak peak but you’ll have to check back for the full blog in a few more days!! Enjoy!
