Rowland Kathy // Destination Wedding in Oahu, Sunset Ranch
Just wanted to start off and say thank you to Kathy, Rowland, and everyone who attended this wedding. Days prior to their wedding, Hurricane Lane decided to give us a scare. Despite the news report and warnings throughout the islands, we kept calm and stayed positive. Kathy and Rowland’s family and friends stood by them as we waited for the storm to pass. Although we were scared, we stuck together and weathered the storm, and boy did it feel good! Not everyone can say they survived a Category 5 Hurricane=)
Jason + Kathy // Kauai Beach House // Destination Wedding
Kathy and Jason’s Wedding at the beach house in Kauai combined tropical vibes with dreamy backdrops. From the Lush landscape of kauais napali coast to the sunset glow on the black rock beach.
Whats better than shooting a destination wedding? shooting a destination wedding for your good friends. I met Kathy through my fiancé krystina who worked with her at the hospital. We all bonded through our experiences as new grads at a previous hospital.
When Kathy and Jason asked me to be their photographer, I was honored. When they told me it was going to be in Kauai, I was hyped! I couldn’t wait to shoot against hawaii’s tropical backdrop and hit them with the angles. With that said, I am so excited to share their beautiful wedding.
After Spending time with Kathy and jason, I can see why everyone gravitates towards them . They are family oriented , genuine , kind hearted, generous, adventurous, and down to earth. They are truly a reflection of the people they surround themselves with .
We are beyond excited for you guys and forever grateful for taking us on your journey . To all the vendors, it was a pleasure working with you guys

PAM + CHRIS // Engagement
Had so much fun shooting Chris and Pam's engagement session last weekend in Vasquez Rocks. I love when couples try to incorporate something different into their photos, in this case, they brought their own smoke bombs!
JASON + KATHY // Engagement in Antelope Canyons
When I asked Jason and Kathy if they had a location in mind for their engagement session, they told me Antelope Canyons. I was beyond excited!!! Kathy had a great idea to stop by vegas before the photoshoot. We went out to downtown LV to meet up with her cousins and had an epic night, ending with the best oxtail soup ever!. Not going to lie, I had a few too many drinks but Jason was the real MVP who drove the whole trip.
Thank you Antelope Canyon Tours for accommodating us! It was such a surreal experience to share it with the couple. Although it looked like we were alone in the photos, don't let it fool you, there where hundreds of people anxiously waiting for their photo opportunity. We headed over to Horseshoe bend after, where hundreds of more people awaited us haha.
This trip was more than just a photoshoot, we got to know each other and shared an amazing experience together. Countdown to your wedding in Kauai!

Not a lot of couples can call each other "high school sweethearts", but Danielle and Bobby can definitely can! Their wedding was at the Noor in Pasadena. We walked just a few steps across the street to the Pasadena to grab some beautiful portrait shots.

REGINA + TIM // Wedding at the Crystal Cathedra
From scrubs, to a beautiful white wedding dress! Regina and I both work together at the hospital. I was humbled when Regina asked me to be her photographer on her special day. Each week, she would update me with all her wedding details. Regina wanted to keep everything simple and personable. Still amazes me how everything turned out!

RICHARD + CLARICE // Wedding at Alta Vista Country Club
TOMMY + EMILY // Engagement in Joshua Tree
I've been wanting to capture a wedding or engagement photos at Joshua Tree for a while. Tommy asked me if I was interested in taking their engagement photos. I immediately said yes, not knowing where the location was, but was beyond excited when they told me they wanted it to be in Joshua Tree.
We took a little trip to Joshua tree with Yogi their dog in the back seat. As soon as we arrived, we pulled over along the side and scoped out the spot. We well in love with the scenery and ended up just staying at that location until sunset. We wanted to keep it fun and natural, somehow including Yogi in the photos. He was a champ and a natural in front of the camera. Tommy and Emily, I am so happy for you guys and can not wait until your weddingin the French Riviera. #frenchrivierawiththelengs
