Proposal at Lizards Mouth in Santa Barbara, California

In Santa Barbara, California, just a little ways out of the way, there’s a hike called Lizard’s Mouth. I initially learned of this place because there is some rock climbing in the area, and I’ve ventured here before with a few friends. Since my very first visit to Santa Barbara, I sort of fell in love with the place! I’m not entirely sure what it was–maybe the warm Southern California sun was just what my Oregonian soul needed. But more so, I just enjoyed the general vibe of the area. It was relaxed and fun, but easy to find places that were pleasing to the artistic eye.

Creative Shoot with Natalie Blooms and Alexis the Stylist

Sometimes we need to get away from our main work focus and CREATE. Working with other creative women on a spur of the moment vision brings new breath and life to my work, and keeps me inspired to keep creating and crafting work that takes me back to the days when I was just learning and saying “Wow, I can’t believe I took that!” It encourages me to keep pushing myself and exploring.

Sunset Proposal in La Jolla

Nothing excites me more than an email or Instagram DM from someone who is excited to plan a proposal for their special person. It’s usually a fun mix of nerves, excitement, overwhelming love, a little bit of chaos and a lot of relief once the deed is done.

CJ and Jill’s proposal was everything I love about proposals. CJ reached out on IG about planning a proposal in La Jolla. He loved the look of the cliffs, and the romantic warmth of the sun at sunset. We found this really pretty and quiet place overlooking La Jolla, which was great because we had been worried about the beach not being a very intimate locatio–so this seemed like the perfect compromise.

Modern Boho Las Vegas Wedding at the Doyle

Kaila and Jason wanted their Las Vegas wedding to have a Modern Boho, yet chill vibe. By incorporating touches like sage, crystals, tarot cards, moroccan rugs and some dried floral details, I think they pulled it off seamlessly! You could tell this couple put in a lot of extra thought to the small details that are really what can take a wedding visually to the next level.

An Oregon Coast Proposal

One of Oregon’s best features is it’s gorgeous coast line, which makes it the perfect place to have an Oregon coast proposal. Even when it’s foggy and cold, that just adds to the PNW-esque feel and drama. These two had the most perfect beach proposal with their best friends present—it couldn’t have turned out any more perfect.
