Far Off Destinations

Being a wedding photographer is a lot of work, but it is also one of the most rewarding jobs! We get to meet a variety of people and our job can take us to some pretty cool places.

Growing up, I never envisioned myself having a typical 9-to-5 type job. I didn’t want to be stuck behind a desk or have a routine-type job. I always saw myself doing something artistic and exploring the world. I never knew that photography would be the career path that combined my love for art AND travel! So whenever we get asked about destination weddings or even unique engagement locations, the answer is always YES.

When Rosemarie and Manny reached out to us, they knew that they wanted engagement photos in a very different location. The opted for The Queen Mary in Long Beach, California. This haunted and elegant location was perfect for their vision. Check out their session photographed by yours truly!

Wake Me Up When September Ends?

WOW! Brianna and I sat in the office sipping on coffee this morning, working on our calendar. We couldn’t believe that we’re basically halfway through September already. WHERE HAS THIS YEAR GONE?! It’s seriously crazy how quickly this year has passed. Although we’re sad to say goodbye to summer (Next week is officially fall!!!) We’re kicking our butts into high gear to tackle the crazy busy month of October.

Over the past few years, October has become the busiest month for us. (Hello to all of our fabulous October couples!) The California heat usually gives us a nice little break and it begins to actually feel like fall – that is if you consider fall in the mid to low 70s with sunshine 😉 We’ll take it! This year our team will photograph 11 incredible couples. We are so excited!

Check out this beautiful engagement session of one of our October couples photographed by Cara. Aren’t they just beautiful?
