Malibu California Bridal Session

Jeremiah and I jump at any chance we get to shoot on the coast. We were traveling in SoCal for a lovely wedding in Santa Barbara so we thought "why not do a bridal shoot!?" We brought this amazing Theia Couture gown from Willow Bride, and I made the bouquet with flowers from the downtown LA Flower Market! I somehow also managed to do Dani's hair and make-up in the back of our rental car. I think that's what we call ghetto fab, but the end result was magic and I'm so glad we did this shoot. I always love creating with my husband, even if that means dragging him to downtown L.A. so I can stare at pretty flowers. 

Silas Newborn session

We don't normally photograph a lot of newborns, but when my friend Jon and his wife Jenni had there first baby, we wanted to create some beautiful images for them. Silas was 3 and a half weeks early, and at the time of these images was only about 4lbs 10oz.

We photographed this entire session in the couples bedroom, on a Hasselblad 500c, on 4 rolls of film, using Portra 800 for color and Ilford 3200 for the black and white. Photovision prints in Salem, Oregon did the amazing processing and scanning. The entire session was super simple and laid back.

Jon was the best man at my wedding, and I was best man at his, so its a privilege to be able to capture this part of their life 

Kate and RJ: Great Gastby Elopement, Glacier Park Weddings

Kate and RJ's intimate wedding was an absolute dream come true! Their love of classic literature was the inspiration behind this gorgeous day. They wanted it to feel like Jay Gatsby himself came to Montana to throw a party for ten.  With the help of Kelsey at Glacier Park Weddings, they made this vision come to life perfectly. Touches of art deco, vintage cocktails that RJ made for his guests, a menu straight from 1920's cookbooks, with Glacier Park as the most stunning back drop. Even Gatsby's Lemon Cake. Every last detail was amazing! We LOVED this small wedding of just family and we are so excited to join Kate and RJ next summer for a big reception celebration!
