Point Dume Malibu Beach Sunrise Anniversary Session | Alice Ann + Casey

Location: Malibu, California

Sunrise is one of my favorite times of the day. That dark blue light that gradually lifts over time. Usually giving way to spectacular colors as the sun finally makes its way over the horizon. It's worth waking up for.

Woodland Redwoods Sequoia Retreat Center Wedding | Jenny + Jon

Location: Ben Lomond, California
Venue: The Sequoia Retreat Center

I drove to the Sequoia Retreat center from Los Angeles stopping every few hours with Vivienne in the back seat. We arrived late at night twisting and turning up the dark winding roads surrounded by the Redwood forest. That night we slept in a cozy little cabin and awoke to a misty morning, the trees covered in fog. We were treated to breakfast with Jenny and Jon's guests. Steam rising from mugs of coffee and chitter chatter about the wedding day ahead.

Bohemian Malibu Beach Elopement Vow Renewal | Kiara + Kiel

Location: Malibu, California 

I was connected to Kiara through our mutual friend Melissa who directed her most recent music video of the Westworld theme song. Kiara and Kiel have been married for a year so in honor of their upcoming anniversary they put their wedding outfits back on and we headed to Malibu to do a vow renewal couples shoot. During our initial emails I asked if they would be game to perhaps get a little dirty and wet and Kiara said yes without hesitation. Once at the beach we frolicked in the water, got caught in waves (myself included) and dried off in the warmth of the sunset glow.

El Capitan Canyon Santa Barbara Glamping Wedding | Jackie + Tim

Location: Santa Barbara, California
Venue: El Capitan Canyon

I met Jackie and Tim through one of my favorite couples and previous clients Grace and Chris. I knew they would likely share some of the same interests and quest for adventure so it was no surprise when they told me they had chosen to get married at El Capitan Canyon in Santa Barbara. This place has been on my bucket list since I first moved to California years ago so I was so excited to finally photograph there. With miles and miles of trails to explore, a multitude of sleeping options including glamping tents and adorable little cabins it really makes for a perfect venue for the adventurous couple that wants some luxury too.
