A Palm Springs Engagement Session – Veena & Sahil

3.5.15 | Engagement Photos

To say I had a great time photographing Veena & Sahil’s engagement session in Palm Springs is an understatement. Not only are they kind and funny and very easy to photograph, but they also put so much effort into planning their session- from what they would wear to where we would shoot. It was so nice to truly collaborate on this session with them. They are getting married at The Parker Palm Springs in November and I can’t wait to see what Jolene of Laurel & Rose helps them create for that day. It’s going to be an amazing wedding and I’m honored to document it for these wonderful people!

We began at this great location with this abandoned old house… So fun to add some architecture to a shoot in the open desert.

Then we went to another location that had a view of the windmills. I LOVE this lilac gown Veena chose and think it went so well with the colors of the desert at that time of evening.vs-palmsprings-engagement-014 vs-palmsprings-engagement-015 vs-palmsprings-engagement-016 vs-palmsprings-engagement-017 vs-palmsprings-engagement-018 vs-palmsprings-engagement-019 vs-palmsprings-engagement-020 vs-palmsprings-engagement-021 vs-palmsprings-engagement-022 vs-palmsprings-engagement-023 vs-palmsprings-engagement-024 vs-palmsprings-engagement-025 vs-palmsprings-engagement-026 vs-palmsprings-engagement-027

A Ritz-Carlton San Francisco Wedding – Jean & Andy

2.3.15 | Wedding Photos

Jean and Andy were originally going to have a beachside ceremony and reception at a Villa in Cabo, but their wedding was scheduled to happen one month after the horrible hurricane hit the area early last Fall so they had to change their plans only a few weeks before the wedding date. They live in San Francisco and chose to change to a venue closer to home to make it easier on all of their guests – having a wedding at the Ritz-Carlton isn’t such a bad backup plan! Regardless of all the changes in the eleventh hour, their day was gorgeous and it went off without a hitch! Well, maybe there was one small thing that happened during the ceremony… but you can read more about that below. :)

Venue: The Ritz-Carlton San Francisco
Dress: Inbal Dror
Shoes: Jimmy Choo
Floral Design: Vo Floral Design

I loved the Jimmy Choos that Jean chose to go with her gorgeously-fitted Inbal Dror gown.ritz-carlton-san-francisco-wedding-001 ritz-carlton-san-francisco-wedding-002 ritz-carlton-san-francisco-wedding-003 ritz-carlton-san-francisco-wedding-004 ritz-carlton-san-francisco-wedding-005 ritz-carlton-san-francisco-wedding-006 ritz-carlton-san-francisco-wedding-007 ritz-carlton-san-francisco-wedding-008 ritz-carlton-san-francisco-wedding-009 ritz-carlton-san-francisco-wedding-010 ritz-carlton-san-francisco-wedding-011 ritz-carlton-san-francisco-wedding-012 ritz-carlton-san-francisco-wedding-013 ritz-carlton-san-francisco-wedding-014 ritz-carlton-san-francisco-wedding-015 ritz-carlton-san-francisco-wedding-016

We spent some time taking portraits around the city. I loved that they allowed for plenty of time to take portraits around the city – such a great thing to do to make sure you get lots of great portraits in great locations.ritz-carlton-san-francisco-wedding-017 ritz-carlton-san-francisco-wedding-018 ritz-carlton-san-francisco-wedding-019 ritz-carlton-san-francisco-wedding-020 ritz-carlton-san-francisco-wedding-021 ritz-carlton-san-francisco-wedding-022 ritz-carlton-san-francisco-wedding-023 ritz-carlton-san-francisco-wedding-024

The ceremony was moving along perfectly until it was time for Jean to place the ring on Andy’s finger. You see, Jean had told Andy not to forget the ring from the safe in the room where he was getting ready. But, for some reason, he thought she had the ring. Long story short, neither of them had the ring and they had to borrow a groomsman’s wedding ring to use during the ceremony. It was such a great moment with great reactions and I’m sure they will be telling this story for many years to come.ritz-carlton-san-francisco-wedding-055 ritz-carlton-san-francisco-wedding-056 ritz-carlton-san-francisco-wedding-057 ritz-carlton-san-francisco-wedding-058

Los Angeles Newborn Photographer – Baby Vivienne

1.8.15 | Portraits, Families & Kids

I photographed Jennifer & Andrew’s Santa Monica wedding in April of 2013 and was so, so happy to hear from them shortly after having Vivienne about setting up a newborn session. I love getting to document this very precious time so very much. And today, as my own little girl started preschool, I’m feeling more than ever just how quickly the time goes and how fast these tiny babies grow up. Thank goodness I have all those photos and videos to look back on to remember how tiny she once was because she gets bigger and older and smarter every single day…

Welcome to the world, sweet Vivienne! You are so loved.
