Santa Catalina Island lays just southwest of Los Angeles and is just a one hour boat ride away on the Catalina Express. Jessica and Brian wanted to have an intimate wedding here with a small group of their best friends and immediate family. Santa Catalina Island lays just southwest of Los Angeles and is just […]
I had a trip planned to Zion as a going away celebration for my friend and I—as I will be moving to San Diego and she has just moved from Portland to Bend. We wanted one last adventure together before going our separate ways for awhile.
Of course, I wanted to shoot while I was there, so I reached out to my community on Instagram and found out that an old friend from college now lives in Utah and her and her boyfriend were up for modeling for me!
Heidi and I have something in common. Smith Rock State Park is one of her favorite places—which is also true for me! If you’ve followed me for awhile or personally know me, you know I spend a good amount of time hanging out here either climbing or shooting. It’s a simply magical place with a lot to offer all kinds of people.
Conor and Anya wanted an intimate elopement that allowed them to focus on what they value and gave them space and time to feel truly present on their wedding day. They rented out an AirBnb on Sauvie Island in Portland, Oregon and invited just a three of their best friends—one of which officiated the ceremony.
San Diego is known for it’s beaches, surf, and most importantly, it’s tacos.
Yet just fifty minutes outside of the city you can find yourself in a forested wonderland of sorts called Mount Laguna. The air here is fresh and crisp, the trees towering and fragrant and the adventure opportunity? Endless!
Mount Laguna is one of the most beautiful places to say your vows in Southern California. This 6,000 ft mountain resides on the eastern edge of the Cleveland National Forest and overlooks the forest as well as the Anza Borrego Desert. Open year round, this mountain receives snow fall in the winter and sunshine in the summer months. It can also get quite windy, so just be prepared to rock that windblown look. Hats are also a helpful accessory for fly away hair!
What inspires you? For me, it’s color, texture, movement, and gorgeous light. When I see these things, I just feel a need to create—that’s what this styled shoot is.
When I met Jen from ShopJSK, a Indowestern fusion fashion brand, we were initially talking about shooting some mask product photos, but when I saw the dresses and suits that her company creates, I couldn’t help but feel inspired and asked if she would want to collaborate on a styled shoot of an elopement amongst the Pacific Northwest trees.
We gathered together a group of our friends to put together this gorgeously colorful shoot out in the forest. Velvet, jewels and ruffled sleeves were all part of the ensemble.
Hailey and Jake were going to elope in Greece. Then COVID hit and their plans changed to the place where they had met. But then that ended up being closed due to COVID as well. So they decided on Santa Barbara, California even though Hailey had never been.
It’s always been my dream to shoot an elopement in Santa Barbara, so when Hailey asked me if I was okay with traveling to SB, I was so stoked, and obviously, it was okay with me!
We decided that since it would just be the three of us, we would make an epic day out of the experience. We decided on several locations and Hailey and Jake did three outfit changes. I couldn’t even tell you my favorite, they looked stunning in every one.
In her vows, Jonica said that ever since she was a girl, she dreamed of having a big, lavish wedding with the “whole nine yards” but as she grew up and when she met Brenden, she realized that really all she wanted was to find a guy like him who was the perfect fit for her
Big wedding plans got tossed aside with the rise of the COVID-19 pandemic with new plans to elope at Smith Rock State Park, an absolutely breath taking natural beauty in central Oregon.
Sarah and Kyle were supposed to get married down in Modesto, California this year with a fun session a few days later out in Yosemite. Due to COVID-19, their plans had to be put on hold and we agreed to meet up in 2021 to tie the knot.
However, last minute, Sarah and Kyle decided they simply didn’t want to wait that long to get married! So they planned to get married in Sunriver, Oregon with just a few close friends present. Luckily, I was available and able to be there and had the joy of capturing their short, intimate day.
