Had the opportunity to go to Patrick Ang’s first workshop and it was luckily here in town! I had quite a lot of fun networking with other photographers, putting faces to names, and getting a chance to learn more from Patrick and doing the styled shoot.
Couple things I learned: A cool new quick way to group my photos in order to save time with saving them in order (yay!!!), and also how to work around many other creatives that also want to nail their shot.
It was chaotic, it was crazy at times, but I’m glad I went!
Thank you to all those that helped make this workshop happen!!

I had been friends with Samantha for several years, so when I found out Samantha and Adam were finally dating, I was beyond excited for both of them.  I asked Samantha if she felt like he was the one, she beamed and said “I really do hope so”. When I got to chat with Adam and express my excitement about the two of them, I could just tell with how he looked whenever he spoke of her or if someone brought her up…he was in love. Fast forward to December 2016, and Adam took Samantha to Balboa Park in San Diego, CA. He took her up the California Tower in the park and got down on one knee. She of course said yes and instantly couldn’t wait to show everyone her beautiful ring. I remember her saying she was even showing it off the the cashier at a store 😛

I was beyond excited for these two to start planning their lives together.  January, we went back to balboa and had a fun-loving engagement session (Engagement post here)
Sam and Adam both really wanted to have their wedding at the Martin Johnson House in La Jolla, but by the time they got engaged, the venue was all booked up far out. By some miracle, they later were told there was an opening, and you better believe it that Sam and Adam booked it.

I still am in love with how their day went. So much love for them and their family and friends. So thrilled to be their wedding photographer
Congratulations Sam and Adam!!!

I am so stoked for the results of my first Bridal Expo yesterday (August 20, 2017). I couldn’t be happier with how it turned out! This whole time, I was just using a mock up design I created on my computer, but there’s just something magical when what you see on the screen becomes reality!!
This was displayed at The Ultimate Bridal Event in Bakersfield Ca. There were over 50 vendors there and lots of brides and brides-to-be. I was a great 1st experience at a wedding expo and I definitely look forward to doing another one!

I absolutely love how the Silady Family’s Newborn lifestyle session turned out!

These new parents are good friends with one of my closest friends in San Diego. Lil miss is their 1st baby and she was so adorable during her session. She just wanted mama the whole time and decided she didn’t want to sleep. Who would have guessed that such a small person could give me a run for my $! Since all she wanted was mama, we rolled with it and in the end, I captured some pretty-darn precious moments between mommy, daddy, and their beautiful little girl. Congrats Silady Family!!!!

I’ve known miss Kati since 2007 when her and I worked together at Linens N Things (whoa!! Hadn’t heard that name in a long time). She is the sweetest person and such kind hearted. I’m so glad we’ve stayed friends and in touch all these years!!

I couldn’t wait to capture her beautiful family since she had recently (at the time) had her lil boy. Their wardrobe was spot on and I just loved hanging out with them and having fun at their session ! Thanks for a fun day by the water, Ronk family.
