You know that tingly feeling you get inside when you know it was just mean to be? That moment when you’re like I like that too, that’s what I like to do for fun too…a hundred and one “toos” make you feel like you were just made to connect. That’s exactly how I felt when I met Yared! Ha, you thought I was talking about their love hugh? Okay, okay I was talking about them at first and then me. Yared, could you believe was my very first “Instagram” client? I met her and was like we need to be friends! She’s adorable, sweet, ultra creative, has incredible style, and the list can go on. Then I met Jimmy and I thought, yeah they are perfect for each other. He loves her beyond measure, makes her laugh, and has a fun little style of his own. Together they love coffee, traveling, hip and urban foodie places, and they love DTLA.

I’ve been photographing their Christmas photos for the last few years now, so I was ecstatic when they got engaged and even more so when they asked me to shoot their enagement session. Then we went to the 6th Street Bridge before it closed and I was dead. You know in that good Instagram hip lingo kinda dead. They made magic of course and well you can see the rest for yourself!

Congratulations Yared and Jimmy you know I have heart eyes for your guys!


Stephanie and Randi recently married on a lovely Fall day in September at the very hip wedding venue, Five Crowns in Corona Del Mar. Their love gushed like that 90’s snack, “Gushers” all gooey , sugary, a tad silly and a whole lot of sweetness! Oh what a lovely wedding, with even lovelier crafted details. Stephanie has a real eye for unique items which represented both hers and Randi’s interests and well Randi, like a good man, went along with every personalized detail. Their ceremony was held under the most gorgeous hand-made garland. Everything was flawless! And they ended it dancing the night away to a Beatles cover band. Perfection!!!2016-01-28_0051
