Talk about trust: I met Ryan and Michelle about 2 hours before their wedding day-we did everything online: Album review, consultation, timelines, scheduling-and they day went off beautifully. Every detail was LITERALLY designed and made by Michelle and Carly (and her team) from Eventful Planner. The rooftop wedding at the Canary Hotel was intimate and beautiful, just as Michelle envisioned. They had their first look at El Capitan State Beach and despite how busy it was, you would never know it-Michelle and Ryan seemed to close out everyone around them and just focused on their time together. It was an amazing thing to be a part of.

I have been dying to share this wedding but wanted to wait until the publications were done and their album selections were final. Lisa and Leah’s wedding was published on Offbeat Bride and On A Bicycle Built for Two. I could go on, and on (and on) about these two; but I think what I wrote (after Leah’s blog portion) sums it up perfectly.
There were a lot of vendors that helped make this day incredible (and Lisa and Leah, people that they are, actually had a FRAMED SIGN thanking all of us):
There are many reason I love this time of year: meeting new couples, engagement sessions, and album designing-especially when I like a couple as much as I do Matt and Reanna. Designing albums allows me to relive their wedding day. It was a perfect day at the Mission San Fernando for their wedding, followed by a fantastic portrait session and reception at Knollwood Country Club (which says a lot about how fabulous Knollwood is; Matt is a golf pro and knows Southern California golf courses inside and out-and Knollwood was one of their top choices). Matt and Reanna, I enjoyed every moment of working with you two; thank you!
I loved every second working with Jessica and Kevin during their Engagement Session. They were so sweet and a lot of fun just to watch-their natural interaction with each other is just beautiful. While I was off shooting another wedding with the always lovely Diana MacDougall, Brian and Courtney were at the Valencia Country Club photographing Jessica and Kevin’s wedding. I’ve been waiting to share this wedding because I knew the photos would look amazing in their album-I loved their choices; going through the photos was so much fun-it made me feel like I was right there with them.
