Wedding // An Intimate Beach Wedding

An intimate ceremony on Laguna Beach with their closest friends and family, the reception following at Seven4one. Aimee and Joe’s wedding was breathtaking from start to finish. Because they wanted to spend their wedding day focused on friends, family & each other, they asked for limited posed photos. I loved the challenge to capture their wedding day as it happened, largely unaffected by my presence. I’ve shared a few of their photos before, but couldn’t help but include a broader selection from their hot & sunny September wedding.

And a special thanks to Seven4one & Events by Robin. Around every corner was a new and thoughtfully designed room perfect for capturing every part of their wedding day.

And, quite possibly, my favorite bouquet ever by #BellaBlooms






Wedding // Ben & Andrea

Andrea and I knew each other in high school, then went off on our different traveling adventures in all corners of the globe. I was so surprised and excited to get an email asking to meet up this summer, and then to photograph their wedding. Ben & Andrea’s love is an easy and deep love that welcomes and draws in everyone around them. Their wedding day was personal, warm and an absolute joy to shoot.

Ryan & Alyssa’s Wedding

Flew from China to the US for this beautiful couple’s wedding. Their family and friends were so wonderful and encouraging. Ryan and Alyssa were full of so much joy, you could see that they really were best friends.

The day was beautiful and the leaves in Pennsylvania were inspiring. As a Washington girl surrounded by hills of fir trees, I had never fully realized how amazing rolling hills of orange, red and yellow leaves could really be. They chose the perfect weekend to get married and I loved being a part of their wedding day. Congrats guys!
