This particular wedding holds a special place in my heart--my little sister just got married! Taylor and Josh's intimate wedding was held at Villa de Amore in Temecula, CA. And as you may know, we are located in the Portland,OR area so I was quite surprised that my little sister chose a wedding venue all the way back home in Southern California! It was literally 15 mi[...]
We love bridal sessions because we get to spend an afternoon with our brides in their stunning dresses away from the hectic pace of the actual wedding day! And there's just something magical about taking a beautiful bridal gown outdoors under natural light. We feel deeply that everyone deserves to be loved, and we love capturing those stories.
I always love my time in Wisconsin. Not only do I get to see my family, but I also get to visit one of my favorite botanical gardens there. What better way to share the beauty of the garden than with some of our favorite photos we were able to capture while holding a mentor session. One of the questions we often get asked is in regards to how we pose our couples. The [...]
We met up with Andrea and Scott a few days after their wedding for a more relaxed bridal session on the beautiful Oregon coast. A bridal session after the big day is a great way to thoroughly enjoy being newly married. It's the simplicity and genuine display of affection for each other that made me fall in love with Andrea and Scott's beach bridal session.
Andrea and Scott's story began a decade ago halfway across the world, and was forever bonded at their intimate Crystal Springs Rhododendron Garden wedding. They met in Malaysia seemingly a lifetime ago and were blessed to somehow cross paths again. The way Andrea and Scott look at each other makes my heart smile. It affirms my belief that true romance can bring people[...]
Mentor sessions are a great way to show our approach on our portrait sessions. The best thing about having a live one-on-one mentor session is that we're able to give feedback on the spot. I find that learning on the spot is leaps and bounds better than trying to learn off an online article. Here are a few photos we snapped while teaching a one-on-one mentor session i[...]
I've been wanting to share this post for quite awhile! But just didn't feel the old website deserved all this prettiness. So with our new website launch, here are several photos from our super short, but not short of gorgeousness sunset session with my SoCal ladies. What a tongue twister!! Anyhow, they have on some seriously stunning Enzoani bridal gowns. Enzoani make[...]
Hey all you Southern Californians! We don't get to visit SoCal enough, so we're opening up a few slots for portrait sessions while we're in town for a few weeks! If you've always wanted to capture that breathtaking bridal session, timeless engagement session, or a fun family session here's your chance!! We're opening up dates for PrettyGeeky portrait sessions! We'll h[...]
What a special wedding we were able to be a part of! We first met Taylor & Lydia last year on their trip to Oregon. Of course Lydia had no idea she would be a part of a surprise beach proposal! We were truly honored when they asked us to photograph their wedding in their home state. They flew us all the way to the beautiful Texas hill country to capture their gorgeous[...]
I'm so happy to share with you Carolyn & Jason's intimate wedding. They have a special place in our hearts and we're so blessed to have been able to not only capture their beautiful day, but also share in the love and joy of their special union alongside their family and friends. We love these two sweethearts and loved seeing them so happy on their wedding day. [...]
Remember Jessica & Tuan's gorgeous Los Angeles engagement session? Well, their wedding was one that we had been so happy and excited to be a part of. These two have made a huge impact on us with their humbleness, kindness and generosity towards others. We have been fortunate enough to be a part of many weddings over the years, while making some truly special friendsh[...]
