Linnea and Evan chose the gorgeous Frederick Loewe Estate  for their wedding- a mid century modern dream in the Little Tuscany neighborhood of Palm Springs.  Their day felt like a glamorous pool party, complete with delicious cocktails and a killer view. Linnea wore two amazing dresses, and their guests channeled Mad Men mixed with springtime. It was a fabulous day. xo

Jordan and Billy’s wedding was gorgeous from start to finish. They celebrated at Ravenswood in Chicago- a city that holds significance and meaning for both of them- and as Jordan happens to be an incredible photographer, I was beyond honored that she would ask me to photograph it! Their ceremony included creative and thoughtful moments, such as passing the wedding rings through all the guests for a special blessing. Their reception was filled with plenty laughter, toasting, and amazing food; we’re talking burgers, sweet potato fries, and even chicken & waffles. It doesn’t get much better than that. A big thanks to my lovely assistant // second shooter Rebecca Butler, who came all the way from Florida for Jordan and Billy’s day! And of course Anna Held Floral Studio for the beautiful floral work. xo

Hannah and Jay are the kind of people you meet, instantly love, and spend the evening watching YouTube clips + eating pizza with. These two are immensely talented, kind and hilarious, which makes for the kind of photo shoot that I don’t want to end. We took some photos in their beautiful West Hollywood home, then headed to Ojai where their wedding will take place this fall. I’m so lucky that my clients feel like friends, and beyond grateful to see the joy in their connection. Cheers, Hannah + Jay!

Stephanie and Markus’ engagement shoot was such a treat. We dreamed up a session on the water with a vintage canoe, and the two of them rowed around the Puget Sound and explored Vashon Island together. The gorgeous garland was made out of eucalyptus, salal, amaranth and roses by the very talented Katherine of Marigold and Mint. Hooray for engagement season, and for these two lovely people who shared theirs with me!

I love when my couples invite me to shoot in their homes- I can’t get enough of it. There’s something so sweet and personal about being in their space and photographing everyday life. Michelle + Tim made pancakes and harvested their little urban garden, toasting with champagne to celebrate their engagement. I’m a fan of all these things. xo

So many things I love about this: Rani is one of my dearest friends who I’ve known since my very first day in college. (She loved me through my flare jeans and flip flop phase, and I am forever grateful.) I had the privilege of being a guest at Rani + Ryan’s Footloose-inspired, glitter-infused wedding, and we did a day-after shoot around San Francisco to commemorate all the celebrating. Hashtag how did I get so lucky.

My dear friend Amy and her sweet fiancé Adam recently got engaged, and we kicked off the celebration with an engagement shoot around Los Angeles. I can’t get enough of these two. Counting down the days til their wedding. xo

 Heather + PJ are the kindest and loveliest people, and I was so honored to photograph their wedding at the gorgeous Maxwell House. Pasadena was in full bloom- you’d hardly know it was winter. Just another reason to love California. xo

I recently got to team up with the very talented Emma, who conveniently happens to be one of my favorite people in the world. Emma knitted an incredible piece through Wool and the Gang, and we took some photos in her San Francisco studio to show the sweater off in all it’s Icelandic glory. (My skill level doesn’t extend beyond sewing  on buttons, so I am in awe.) You can read her post on Emmadime, and see our feature on Wool and the Gang here!

Linnea and Evan are my kind of people: hilarious, easy going, and willing to try anything once – which is especially lucky on photo shoots! We started at their home in Echo Park, then drove out to El Mirage Dry Lake Bed to play in the desert. They did it up right with sparklers + streamers, and we celebrated their engagement until sundown. xo
