Lexi+Reid: 5-year Anniversary Vow Renewal

These sweet souls came out from Texas to celebrate their 5-years of marriage and renew their vows cliffside in Palos Verdes. I am so honored that they chose me to capture this milestone!


Melissa+Scotty // Engaged

These two sweethearts met at USC and got engaged on a picnic so we chose the Exposition Rose Garden and a little picnic vibe for their engagement session! Love Melissa's Reformation dress!

Harper // 9 months

This little cutie pie crawled around my studio for a bit for some 9-month portraits! Harper is the youngest of the Zanotti family - my favorite in Manhattan Beach (I was their nanny for 3 years!)

My adventures in film continue! All photos shot on the Contax 645, fuji400h Pro rated at 200, developed and scanned by Richard Photo Lab.



After shooting a wedding in Palm Springs, Stacy Keck and I spent the day in Joshua Tree and Yucca Valley taking film photos. I collected a ton of goodies for my wedding at the Sky Village Swapmeet where we met "Just Plain Bob" and his amazing crystal cavern made from spray foam installation, paint, fountains and of course lots of crystals. It was amazing!

Styled Shoot // Palos Verdes, CA

Dreamy sunset light on the rocks in Palos Verdes - intensely romantic with a touch of whimsy! Also - my first shoot using my new Contax 645 medium format film camera! The images below are a hybrid of digital, medium format film and 35mm film.
