  • Cooper + Michelle {married this time!}

    Thursday, September 24 | Comments

    Round two of Cooper + Michelle, this time it was their awesome wedding day. They got married in a little spot over looking Laguna Beach, it was great!! It was a little more than toasty out, but it was beautiful! I have never seen a groom more excited to marry someone! Anyone that meets them knows these two are perfect for each other. Cooper was SO excited to see Michelle during their first look, and it really shows. Michelle had her dress made, which I always love. They had their reception at her parent’s ranch in Orange County after the whole bridal party drove over in different types of vintage cars. The reception was great, they said later that the party went on until 3am! Instead of the “Money Dance” these two has “Honeymoon Horse Shoes” where you could give them a few bucks and throw some horse shoes with them. We loved it. Nothing beats homey, laid back weddings!

    Mark + Hannah- Agoura Hills, CA

    Wednesday, September 16 | Comments

    We met Mark and Hannah a while back for the first time and we thought they were timid and quite- we were so wrong. These people know how to throw a party {wait till you see the reception photos at the end, so fun}. They got married in this quaint, private club in LA. It was the weirdest thing, you were driving in the middle of no where {I was getting a bit worried} then all the sudden this little community pops up with a private lake and this beautiful old building. The ceremony was beautiful, the everything was beautiful! Mark and Hannah were so cute together, just laid back and go with the flow- I loved it! And I have to say, their reception was quite the shocker. I have never seen a bride and groom {especially the the groom} get down the way they did. It was none stop awesomeness…

    Bring it on Meagan and Aaron… bring it on.

    Monday, September 14 | Comments

    Well, we’re down in CA for a good 3 weeks with 8 shoots packed in! It’s a good time {I love being home}We had the pleasure of shooting an old friend of mine from high school {we were in drama class together through most of high school}. Meagan actually went on to do something with it, where I just accepted the fact that my future didn’t lie on the stage… talentless when it comes to acting! Talentless! But Megan here is in Bring it on: Fight to the Finish, among other things. She and her lovely English, soccer player of a fiance, Aaron- are adorable. I love them… We had an interesting day in LA trying to find cool places to shoot. Ended up at some cool art school. We had a great time shooting them, talked to some locals about photography {one has to expect to be approached in an art school if you’re doing something artsy}. The great day had a not so great ending when we went to our car and realized it was GONE… HUH?!?! Apparently in LA, “one hour parking” really means one hour parking. $250 later we got to drive home… uhu. But it was still a good time none the less!

    Cooper + Michelle- the awesome…

    Thursday, August 20 | Comments

    We flew back down to sunny CA to shoot this awesome couple we booked a while back. Cooper and Michelle…. are awesome. We met them at their house in Costa Mesa and just explored around some of their favorite spots to ride bikes and hang out. We always love seeing where couple like to be when it’s just them, shooting people in their own favorite places is always awesome, and it gives the pictures some good meaning! Cooper spent all night polishing up their bikes (adorable) and we headed out after meeting their scruffy Mcdoggy dog… a name I gave him in my head. At the end of the night we did some shots at the place Cooper proposed to Michelle, we spent a good while watching Cooper attempt to fly a wooden plane they’d been unsucessful with in the past. But there was sucess this time!

    Anyway, the shoot was awesome, the company was awesome… here it is and enjoy! You’ll see them again later when we shoot their wedding in September!
