I am already neck deep in wedding season and boy do I have a lot of images to share so I'm going to just pretend that I don't feel a huge amount of guilt over blog neglect. My first work trip of 2013 was a crazy little east coast tour a la Planes, Trains & Automobiles...and taxis, shuttle buses, subway, foot, you name it. I flew into NYC and stayed for less than 24 hours. Just enough time to receive a shipment of cocktail dresses from my BFF, Rent The Runway, gorge on some Chinese takeout, sleep really fast and then it was off to meet up with Sam & Matt for their engagement session. I first met Sam last October when she was a bridesmaid in Julie & Zach's gorgeous wedding at The Willard in Washington DC. And as luck would have it, I just happened to be in

Whenever I fly back to DC to shoot a wedding I manage to squeeze in all sorts of portrait sessions. Sometimes it's the new baby of one of my past wedding couples, or a growing family I've been shooting for years. Very often it's an engagement session for one of my upcoming weddings since I am still shooting weddings from coast to coast. I might live in Los Angeles but I love to go all over the place for weddings. I feel like it keeps me fresh to be working in new and different venues all the time, with different kinds of light/ weather, people...you know. On my most recent trip back to DC for Mere & Pat's wedding I met up with Amanda & James, a fabulous couple who came to me through the lovely Sara Muchnick of Engaging Affairs. They are planning the most fabulous wedding at the
Jana & Jordan are friends of two of my recent wedding clients and apparently they are all big fans of Palm Springs...because that's exactly where all of their weddings have taken place/ will take place. Luckily I am also a huge fan of Palm Springs and anything and everything mid-century modern. So I am really looking forward to this wedding which is to be hosted at The Viceroy which is just unbelievably cool...just like Jana & Jordan. I recently shot their engagement session in Malibu...and here are a few highlights.
Hilary & Harvey were some of my first wedding clients to come and see me at the new studio. I'm still putting some finishing touches on the place but very soon I will be sharing it with the world. But these two were down in Socal from their home in Oregon for some wedding planning so we decided to shoot their engagement session in and around Studio City...the place I call home. Stacy Sarkisian came over and did just a gorgeous job with Hilary's makeup. Stacy, whom my phone affectionately calls "Stacy Eyebrows" is also a client and the genius who keeps me looking like a normal human with two eyebrows that are distinctly separate and well-shaped. Anyway, Hilary & Harvey are just the sweetest and cutest couple. Hilary has this gorgeous smile that even she can't escape and Harvey, oh my can the man dress! This couple has such
Well not only has wedding season begun but so has engagement session season so lots of fun new stuff to share here on the blog. Today I bring you Kim & David, a truly lovely couple planning a September wedding on Nantucket. So excited to shoot another wedding in New England and especially with the always incredible Jen Stiebel of SoCo Events! They brought their cute little dachshund along and we played around downtown in and around Union Station. Enjoy!
