Erick and Katie’s wedding at the Park Savoy was a beautifully classic celebration. Both of them looked incredible, and every photograph expresses their love. Erick and I have known each other since we were children. There’s a picture at my aunt’s home that describes us perfectly: he’s giving people high fives as he walks down […]

Do you notice that some brides have those enchanting photos with their skin glowing? They basically look like perfection as the sun sets behind them. Most of those photos come from golden hour, which not every bride integrates into their timeline. Today, we’re talking about the reception timeline and how to prioritize sunset portraits so […]

Today we’re going to talk about one of my favorite couples! It is an honor photographing each couple’s precious moment, and even moreso for a couple who I’ve had the chance to do multiple milestone photoshoots with.

Today I’m sharing a Pebble Beach proposal story that was exciting for the couple and their families! It’s so sweet to witness when families are genuinely excited for the couples. There’s great joy seeing a family celebrate just as much as the bride to be! About the Couple Cameron and Lauren are the sweetest couple. […]

What first stood out to me about Quail Lodge and Golf Club is their stellar staff. They are so approachable, kind, and open to all couples. I met with the General Manager and some of the staff and they are so friendly! From a photographer’s perspective, there are various locations to the property: meadows, ballroom, […]
