Wedding by the lake {San Moritz Lodge wedding photographer}

San Moritz lodge is a beautiful location for a wedding! What a sweet couple these two are! They were both all smiles all day! It’s so much fun for me to photograph couples who like to be close and snuggly, and these two were! You can see the love radiate between them in their eyes and how their faces light up when they see each other!

When I arrived at the venue, the bride was all dressed and ready for her and almost husband’s first look. As we were walking down to where he was waiting, she was fighting with her veil {because it was a pretty windy day} she said the veil was “crunchy”. Never hearing a veil described like that before, I asked about her statement. That is when she proceeded to tell me that it was her grandmas veil that she wore at her wedding 54 years ago. Which is why it was a little “crunchy” How beautiful is that? The picture on the top right of the images below, is her grandma who wore the same veil so many years ago.

Handsome young man {Greenspot farm photographer}

I remember not to long ago photographing this little baby boy his mom and dad prayed for. His parents were so excited to be having a baby and it was so sweet watching them swoon over him! Now, can you believe it, he is just about 2 years old. He has grown up so fast!! He loved this farm. The animals, dirt, trains and trucks, he loved it all!

It’s always an honor for me to be asked to photograph special occasions or milestones in people’s lives time and time again. So often I don’t see them as clients, I consider them friends!

Burnt Mill Wedding {Burnt Mill Beach Club Photographer}

WOW. Everything was perfect!!

These two have been together for a very long time and they were so excited to be getting married! I was able to meet the grooms family a few months back when we did family pictures for them it was getting to know them a little bit.

Burn Mill Beach club is located in Lake Arrowhead and reserved for members only. It’s a little club house with a small beach and a volleyball court. It connects to the walking path which continues around the lake. They have nothing there, you have to bring it all in yourself.

These two did an amazing job decorating and preparing for this day. The ceremony was beautiful!! She read that origami cranes are good luck on your wedding day and she made hundreds of these cranes. HUNDREDS, they were displayed in the trees, in the club house…it was really beautiful!! They had Tommy’s bring their food truck up for dinner and each place setting had a  little bib with a tag that said, “when dinner gets messy.”

Congrats to the two of them!! I cant wait to watch their love grow!!

Everything at this wedding was gorgeous! The bride, her dress, the details… stunning!! Look how vibrant her bouquet is!!

San Moritz Lodge is a location that you can do things your self. So it’s a blank canvas and every time I go there for a wedding or any event, it’s always different! I love it. Sometimes couples decorate the elaborate centerpieces on every table, sometimes they make simple decorations and set them on the windowsills. But no matter what, each and every wedding there is beautiful!

Love this age!! {Children’s photographer in Redlands}

Oh.My this little one!!

When we first started, mom was telling me that her daughter is very shy and we may not get many smiles from her. The top left picture is after 5 minutes of trying to warm up to her and talk with her. I knew I had my work cut out for me, but I was determined to get some smiles!! So, we talked about the leafs, about the flowers in her hair and my dog. After about 10 minutes, I just knew by the end of our time, she would be smiling.

This is my favorite age to photograph. They are talking, but not well, they are walking, but still wobbly and when they are happy their entire face lights up. I had so much fun with her!! As you can see, the last picture I took, the bottom right, I got my smile!

Love at the park {Redlands Photographer}

Robert & Jenn are one of the sweetest couples! We walked around prospect park, they held hands and laughed the whole time! We also had a little critter with us…they found a kitten and was looking to find a forever home for him. I’ve never had anyone bring a kitten to a session before. LOL

They have been enjoying life together for a while now and are looking to be married a little later in the year! I’m so excited to do their wedding pictures and watch their love grow!!

I love what I do! Every wedding is unique and every couple is different! No two are the same!

One thing I LOVE, is when my couples trust me. They know if I ask them to walk through this over grown patch of grass, that I see something that will turn out great. They know that if I ask them to do something silly, they trust that I have a shot in mind. Often times, it’s not the silly thing that makes the great picture, it’s them laughing at themselves in that moment that is the great picture.

I can capture so many more great moments when you trust me in what I do. It’s tough to follow a shot list, because I’m more focused on the shot list than I am capturing the day as it happens. Of course, let me know if there is a special image you want, or a pose you love! I want to know those things, but trust your photographer! Trust me to do my job, trust me to get the shots you hired me to get and enjoy your day! Don’t stress about what I’m doing, let me capture you in the moment!

Jim & Jackie are a lovely couple! I was blessed to meet them and do their engagement pictures before the wedding day. We had so much fun hiking to heart rock!

When I got to San Moritz on the big day, she could not wait until they got to their first look! She looked stunning! These two could not keep their eyes off each other! It was so sweet, they enjoyed their wedding day, loved having friends and family around and I was able to capture some beautiful pictures of this sweet couple! Thank you both for trusting me!
