|| michelle + justin || Calabasas, CA wedding

Michelle and Justin are one of the sweetest couples. They were friends of a past b. schwartz couple and I could not have been more thrilled to have been asked to capture their wedding in the beautiful Southern CA hills. 

Michelle's family is Polish and Justin's Italian which means this duos wedding was full of family, culture, amazing food, great drinks, dancing and lots of laughter.

|| ashley + cory || engaged Boulder, Colorado

Ashley and Cory are the most darling couple. As soon as I met Ashley on one of her trips to Denver I knew we would get along splendidly. This Austin, Texas duo has a love for hiking, the outdoors and Colorado. So I knew we had to find a beautiful CO back drop for their engagement session. Chautauqua Park in Boulder, CO was just the place. 

We ended up having to reschedule because of rain and boy am I glad we did. The sunshine in these photos is just dreamy. 

Ashley and Cory thanks for having me capture your love. I can't wait for your Colorado wedding next Summer.

|| nick + amber || Santa Barbara, CA wedding

I met Amber way back in College so when I got an email asking if I would be her wedding photographer I was thrilled. Amber and Nick decided to be married at the El Presidio Real de Santa Bárbara, also known at the Royal Presidio of Santa Barbara. Amber has family roots that go back generations. Her family name is written on the wall inside the very room they said I do 

Surrounded by a close 50 family and friends they celebrated on the roof top of the Canary Hotel downtown Santa Barbara.

|| andrew + michelle || Aspen, Colorado ViceRoy Wedding

When you combine the mountains of Aspen, Colorado, a dynamite couple like Andrew and Michelle (who by the way met on the beaches of Miami. Couple after my own heart... Love for the  beach and mountains ) stunning florals by Prema Floral and the stelar design talents of Blue Bird Aspen the result is to die for. 

Andrew, Michelle and I met through another b. schwartz couple Michele and Colby (which we can't wait for their Aspen wedding this fall). From the moment I sat down with these two for our first early morning coffee meeting in Denver to their engagement session in Aspen weeks later I knew their wedding would be right up my alley. With a love for the outdoors these two, with their dearest friends and family surrounding them, said their vows atop a mountian over looking Aspen resort. They ate, drank and danced the night away at the beautiful ViceRoy Snowmass. 

Enjoy gazing on these beauties

|| konrad + jill || engaged

Since Colorado apparently still thinks its winter I thought I would share this snowy and cozy engagement session with one of the sweetest couples I have had the privilege of capturing on film.

Jill and Konrad won me over in their initial email, they told me how much they loved Jesus and wanted a photographer who shared their faith. It resonated with me for days how special the connection is that we have with our brothers and sisters in Christ, and how that can translate in photos. I can't wait to capture their July wedding in southern Colorado I just know it will be such a blessing! Thanks you two for inviting me into your story. 

Hope y'all are staying warm in this snowy weather! Cozy up with a hot coco and enjoy this sweet e - sesh

|| blake + jess || engaged

well to say the least I have fallen behind in the blogging department... We win some we loose some right. Thats all changing today, I am catching y'all up on all the beauty that engagement session has brought us so far. 

First up Blake and Jess. They are the most darling couple from Houston, Texas who I met through mutual friends. We planned a friends getaway to Breckinridge and Blake knowing Jess' love for Colorado decided he would pop the question on the balcony of our cabin overlooking the Breckenridge valley. swoon I know... what girl wouldn't love that? 

Thanks you two for allowing be to be apart of such a sweet moment in your story. Cant wait till you two tie the knot this Fall.

|| ty + sal engaged ||

So we all know that snow and cold weather... I am not a fan. I miss the sunny beaches of CA but this engagement session might just change all of that. Ty and Sal are rock stars. They braved the freezing cold 10º snowy weather the day after Christmas and on Sals birthday for this dreamy sunrise session in the Colorado Rockies... to say the least we think the outcome is to die for. 

So looking forward to their wedding this coming fall.
