We finished up all of the serious groomsmen photos early which means one thing: crazy photos. One of the benefits of a wedding venue like The 1909 is great on-site photo opportunities.
As the leaves fall and the crisp air of November rolls in, we welcome the season of gratitude. Every year I am reminded of all of my blessings.
I am fortunate to be a working photographer. Thank you dearest clients for believing in me, for trusting me with your most precious of memories. It is never easy, and it’s a lot of work, but I am inspired by you to give my best.
A big thanks to my mom, who has no idea why I sometimes lie down to take photos, yet who insists on assisting me during Chicago portrait sessions.
Thank you to my dear husband for shooting by my side during weddings, not complaining when I stay up all night editing, and picking up lots of take-out dinners.
And many thanks to our doggy Ollie for keeping me company as I edit and reminding me when I need to go for a walk.
I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving surrounded by those you love!
I’m drawn to this bride’s smile in the mirror, with the word leap reflected back at her. Her handsome groom, now husband, stands silhouetted looking upon her.
This photo didn’t make my original edit for Susan and Josh’s wedding blog post, but I love it all the same. Perfect for my weekly Encore! series.
I love the colors of fall. Growing up in Chicago, every autumn was a majestic explosion of yellows, oranges and reds.
Fall in Los Angeles is more subdued, hidden. But it’s still here if you look for it.
I knew I wanted to incorporate an element from this gorgeous season when photographing Roseanne and John’s wedding in Griffith Park last November. I was happy to find a yellow leaf for their ring shots. What do you think?
Marquel and Darnell held their elegant wedding at the Plaza at Cabrillo Marina. They said their vows underneath a centuries-old tree, surrounded by their family and friends.
