Meagan and Austin, Robert Hall Winery, CA

Meagan and Austin had an incredible wedding at Robert Hall winery in Paso Robles, CA. It was so awesome to see the way they look at each other and interact – it made me really thankful for the gift of marriage, and excited for them to start this new stage of their lives together.

And I have NEVER seen such a packed and crazy dance floor…holy cow. You could hardly move around the room it was so active. EVERYONE was dancing and going crazy the entire night. Meagan and Austin had friends DJ, but these were no normal “friend” DJ’s – these guys were the most awesome DJ’s I’ve seen in my wedding photography career to date.

Meagan and Austin – have fun in Kauai! Your photos will be ready for you when you get back.

Planner/Coordinator: Lara Chroma of Sealed with a Kiss Events
Flowers: Flowers By Denise
DJ: ??? (still need to get their names)
Catering/Venue: Robert Hall Vineyard Winery

So, here’s what’s going on in the next photo: the coordinator (the fabulous Lara Chroma of Sealed with a Kiss Events) is telling Meagan and Austin that much of Austin’s family is stuck in the elevator. I don’t know the whole story, but I think it involves someone thinking it would be fun to push the emergency stop button. The fire department had to come, and it took maybe 45 minutes to get them out. What a story, huh?:)

Dana and Bryan's Engagement, Pismo Beach CA

Dana, Bryan, and I headed to Shelter Cove and Price Canyon for their engagement photos. Both are areas I love, and the field is one of my secret spots (okay maybe it’s not secret, but I found it!).

Dana and Bryan were super fun to be around. Bryan asked me all sorts of insightful photography questions that went beyond what I normally get, and it was actually pretty fun to think about and answer them. One of the questions he asked me is, “While you’re shooting, do you ever think ‘oh no, this shoot is going terribly and these photos are going to come out badly’?”

I responded that sometimes sessions are a little awkward at first, but once people realize that it’s more of just a time for us to hang out and less a super-strictly-posed mall portrait session, things loosen up and we always end up getting great images. So the answer is no – even couples who are really worried about the shoot being awkward or difficult end up realizing pretty quickly that things are a lot easier and more fun than they thought they would be.

Great questions Bryan, and it was awesome to hang out with you and Dana! Looking forward to your wedding.:)

Tiffany and Joel's Wedding, Oxnard CA

Tiffany and Joel had a beach wedding in Oxnard, California. We shot photos at the Port Hueneme Pier, and they had their reception at the top floor of the Crowne Plaza in Ventura. Talk about a view – they had a bird’s eye vantage of the beach for their entire reception. Awesome. The weather was perfect for photos, too.

Great hanging out with you guys! Enjoy married life.:)
