alex and ryan…temecula wine country wedding

this last month I shot the beautiful wilson creeek winery for a gorgeous wedding of some beautiful people!  Such a pleasure to document this wedding day!  Portrait time was super slim, and so I only snuck in a few film images, but they will kick off this post.  Be sure to watch the slideshow of the digital captures that tell the story of the day! Alex and Ryan…you two are amazing and a perfect pair!  Hope you are loving married life! xoxo

(thank you so much Tegyn Friedman Photography for second shooting me!)

wynde and james…wedding with a snippet of film portraits

I have been enjoying so much exploring the medium of film with my photography work.  I absolutely love it and it is such a treat for me to incorporate film into some of my portrait time with my wedding clients.  I will start off this post with a few of my favorite film images mixed in with some digital portraits of this beautiful bride and her handsome husband.  It was such a lovely wedding to document and I am pleased to share my perspective of the day.

Be sure to watch the slideshow at the end of the wedding day!

I’ll let the images speak for themselves…

Jessica and Christian…hybrid engagement session on film and digital.

Summer has swept in and taken my heart and attention into the joy of spending time making memories and adventures with my wonderful family! I have been loving it! We have been having so much fun…and I am so grateful for the opportunity to spend time with my 5 kiddos! I have also been busy with shoots, but I am just finally catching up sharing some here on the blog.
A few months ago, I shot a some gorgeous wedding clients at an amazing venue…Balboa Park in San Diego. I love shooting here and the day was just gorgeous! So happy to share Jessica and Christian’s e-session and I am SO looking forward to their beautiful wine country wedding later this year. So much goodness between them…it is going to be a wonderful day!
Here are a few of my favorites shot with the mixed medium of digital and film…hope you enjoy!

jess is seriously stunning…adored her super cute and colorful wardrobe selections! She nailed it!

i mean…come on…seriously jessica…you are so gorgeous!

the history and detail here is amazing…hands down one of my favorite places to shoot!

loved meeting you two and can’t wait for october!
