Tyler & Maria

This past weekend will be one of those “Do you remember when?” stories for Nicola and I. The day started off like any other, rummaging around and gathering all my equipment and double checking it before the wedding. I gathered my things by the door and awaited for her to pick me up to head off to shoot Tyler & Maria’s wedding. Time was getting close and I hadn’t heard from her yet so I was getting a little anxious. She finally showed up and I rushed out to the car, only to find the poor thing sick as a dog. She was balled up in her driver’s seat, and the color was drained from her face. I felt AWFUL for her and started to panic trying to figure out how to help, and what to do about the wedding. Luckily my guy is super awesome and agreed to help me get to the wedding. I sent Nic back home to rest up, and agreed that if she felt better later she’d meet us at Balboa Park to shoot formals for the couple. I made it to the ceremony on time and the day went flawlessly from there on!

The ceremony was unbelievably cute and luckily Nic was able to make it to Balboa after all. But what I can be most grateful for this day was how AWESOME Tyler & Maria were!! These two were just so happy the whole day it was infectious. Not to mention how easy going and unabashedly smitten they were!

Look at how gorgeous their rings AND her bouquet are!!! If I remember right I believe Maria’s sister made her bouquet for her. Didn’t she do an amazing job?!

Josh & Lacey

Talk about a sweet couple! Josh and Lacey were super awesome during the engagement shoot with Nicola and I. Even though Balboa Park was super packed this particular day we had fun finding little nooks and crannies of the park that weren’t so populated. End results were a fun day of adventuring and some really great shots!

Super excited about their wedding in August!!


New things on the horizon

I’m getting really excited about the possibilities that are opening up for me. Not too long ago I met up with a local wedding photographer who was looking for an assistant/2nd shooter. Luckily Nicola and I hit it off well!! About a week or 2 ago we got together to work on a shoot. There is a series she’s working on that the concept is REALLY cool. I don’t know if she’s keeping the project a secret or not so I won’t divulge that infomation, but I’ll definitely keep you posted!  While working on this shoot she was nice enough to let me snap off a few rounds with my camera and start practicing with lighting (which is something I’ve never really had the chance to work with before). So with the help of Nicola and her equipment here are a few of my shots.

 

THIS ONE IS MY ABSOLUTE FAV!!!! What do you think?

Now off to do some more editing! Next up? A wedding I attended this past weekend!!


San Diego Adventure Time!

So those of you who know me I’ve moved across the country in the past few months. As a result my photography has kind of suffered due to the lack of knowledge I have for around here. But over the past 3 months I’ve slowly been working at trying to make a groove for myself out here. So to start things out I’m trying to catch up on posts I’ve neglected. First up is a few shots I took at the San Diego Safari Park. My boyfriend, his family, and I went there to celebrate his birthday! I had only been in town for 2 days to this completely blew my mind. I’d never seen anything like it. Animals just meandering around while you walk around the paths or take guided tours on trams. It was rad! Here are a few shots from the day.

So there you have it, my first post after the big move and hopefully the first of many!!

P.S. I cannot get use to the sight of palm trees for the life of me!!!!!!


I’M NOT DEAD!!!!

Yes I know I’ve abandoned my site, but I mean to remedy that! These past few months have been quite a whirlwind of things that unfortunately I’ve let my photography suffer from it. Between returning to my old job, traveling, and family events it’s been pretty nonstop. But thankfully do to the traveling I was able to grab some shots to share! I had the luxury of traveling to Sedona, Arizona on a 3 day road trip. I cannot even begin to describe the kind of beauty that exists out there. Here are some of my favorites from my adventure…

Now I know I’ve over processed some of these during editing but I was testing out a new photoshop technique and realized my graphics card is crapping out I think. So until I can properly re-edit them, these will have to do 🙂


OH EMM GEEE

I can’t express how excited I am to share this set. I was lucky enough to attend Phipps Conservatory’s “Candlelight Evenings”, where they have their Winter Flower Show going on, but you get to walk through at night with the walkways lit by candles. I don’t know what it was about going through there at night, but there was just something extremely enchanting about it. I have been to Phipps once before and I loved it the first time but now…. now it’s a very special place to me. I can honestly say the photos I took there are probably my best to date. It’s going to be very hard to decide which ones to post here. I almost wish I could post them all on here, but then again that’s what Flickr is for! So with further ado here are some of my favorites

MANY MANY MANY MANY  Hugs and Thanks go to: Firstly to @hellohahanarf for letting me know that this even was even going on! If it wasn’t for her I would have completely missed it! (Tonight is the last night for it!!) And secondly to @djlunchbox for being a great friend and joining me for this even. I knew he was my best friend for a reason 😉


Christmas time is here

The magical time of year has rolled around once again. All the hope and wishes of everyone focused into one special season. Lights twinkling on the tree, presents being wrapped, children brimming with anticipation all have a certain magic about them. Here are a few shots I snapped while my nieces and nephew decorate the tree…

HAPPY HOLIDAYS EVERYONE!

MAY IT BE FILLED WITH JOY AND SURROUNDED BY LOVE
