Christian + Ashlan | Married | Parkfield, Ca

Christian and Ashlan were made for each other, you could see it in every part of their wedding. From the hand made details to the massive amount of family and friends that were in attendance. 

Their wedding took place way off the beaten path at the famous V6 Ranch and Parkfield Inn in Parkfield, Ca. 

Here are some of my favs from their perfect wedding day!


Javi + Sharee | Married | Templeton, CA

When Javi came to my door almost a year ago and asked me to capture him asking Sharee to be his wife, I cried. The same tears flowed as I had the honor of capturing two hearts becoming one. 

I've know these two for years, and have photographed many family events, but this one was extra special. I was there when Javi dropped to a knee that cold January afternoon and asked Sharee to be his wife, I was there to capture their engagement photos and the effortless love they share and here I was front and center as these two families because one and filled the air with love and laughter.

Sharee has a piece of her fathers shirt sewed into wedding dress so he would be with her as she became a wife, there is no doubt that he was with you that day and every day Sharee. He is so proud.

Home Sweet Home Cottage and Ranch is an amazing venue, intimate and cozy with a built in family feel, if you head that way, please tell them I said hello. Their staff and grounds are amazing and I hope to be back there this year!

Mike + Tara | Married | Shell Beach, CA

I couldn't think of a better way to end my 2015 wedding season than with Mike & Tara. Their love story is so great that I could listen to it over and over and never get tired of it!

Mike's brother married Tara's sister, and the very short version is they met through Tara's sisters wedding planning process. There are so many more great details, but just know that this is a match made in heaven.

Their December wedding was an intimate family affair with so much love you could feel it in the air. 

Tara was effortlessly beautiful in her full length, long sleeved lace wedding dress with elegant babies breath bouquet.

Their wedding day consisted of a wonderful church ceremony in Orcutt, Ca followed by dinner and dancing at The Cliff's resort in Shell Beach, I'm so thankful they picked me to capture this amazing day!

David + Jessica | Married | Kaleidoscope Inn, Nipomo CA

Well now that wedding season is officially over, it's FINALLY time to get caught up on some blogging. It will most likely take me the rest of the year (haha) to get caught up on posting all of the amazing wedding's that I had this year, but I wanted to start off with David and Jessica.

Their amazing wedding took place at the ever so lovely Kaleidoscope Inn . I really love this venue, their staff is great and it's never short of greenery and flowers.

David and Jessica had the best of both worlds incorporating a beach theme into their garden location. 

There was so much love that day, they are a great couple and I loved being apart of their wedding day!


Robert + Esmeralda | Wedding | Rancho San Antonio | Buellton, CA

Robert & Esmeralda's wedding took place at the ever so amazing Rancho San Antonio in Buellton, Ca. 

From vintage couches and flowers as far as the eye could see, to fine china this couple had every detail nailed down. They even made sure to keep their guests nice and warm with wraps as wedding favors. Everything was perfect.

Their ceremony was straight from the heart, with meaningful prayers from family and friends as well as an entire blessing from guests. There wasn't a dry eye anywhere. 

I had a blast being a part of their special day, as well as trying out their custom margarita machine and of course a cupcake!

Here is just a sample of the awesomeness!


Special thanks to my second shooter Hannah Kate Photography!
