In a few days one of my beloved roommates, Brianna, is marrying the love of her life, and I’m thrilled at how the Lord has brought them together.
They are such a great fit, and when you see them together it makes sense. Sometimes when I’m cooking I hear them giggling in the living room, and listening to them laugh makes me laugh.
We had an amazing day together when we drove to Lytle Creek in the San Bernadino mountains to get these images. Great conversation, breathtaking scenery and SNOW!
After shooting Chris and Tammy’s engagement photos last fall I was excited to document their wedding at the beautiful Ebell Club in Long Beach, CA! Tammy’s amazing dress set the tone for the decor, and the day was filled with a lot of laughter and sweet connections between family and friends.
When I sat down to choose images for this post, I got a little emotional because of how much love is in these shots. Chris and Tammy honestly belong together and the love between them is almost tangible. You can feel it when you’re with them, and I’m so thankful I was able to capture it with my camera!
Cindy Sattanni did an incredible job with Tammy’s hair and makeup!

This is my idea of a great shoot… a plump, sleeping newborn and a playful older brother. I had so much fun photographing baby Mason when he was a just one week old! Those cheeks! So juicy!

It’s always fun to be with a couple who truly enjoy each other. Dante and Holly are a perfect fit, and we laughed and talked our way through this shoot in Laguna Wilderness Park.
Sometimes during a shoot I have a moment where I think, “I can’t believe I get paid to have this much fun.”
I had a lot of those moments when I photographed Jax, Xander, Drake and baby Beck.
Their mom had a specific shot in mind, and they were pretty good sports about gathering around the little red chair.
But they also had a LOT of other ideas:
– their best modeling poses
– action shots on their scooters
– “surfing” on a piece of palm frond that fell in the yard.
I pretty much laughed the whole time.
Three-year-old Drake kept cracking himself up by saying, “I go boom,” then holding out his arms like a zombie, and crashing to the ground. He did it at least eight times, giggling like crazy in the grass after each tumble. His pants got progressively muddier as the shoot went on.
Sweet baby Beck!
