Another amazing day spent with Garrett Knoller and his family for his Bar Mitzvah. We started at the beach for some fun portraits and then got straight into the action. Congratulations Garrett on a wonderful day!

Garrett's Portrait

I had so much fun photographing Garrett’s portrait. The lighting that day at El Matador was really moody and fun to play with. I was able to capture some really interesting shots.

Atosa and Paul's Engagement

I had a great time photographing Atosa and Paul for their engagement shoot. They wanted their engagement shoot to have a city back drop and to be playful, so we went to the Santa Monica Pier for their shoot. I can’t wait to photograph their wedding this weekend.

Valencia Family Portrait


The Valencia Family was so much fun to photograph. I took them down to El Matador State Beach north of Malibu for their portrait. The kids were super fun to capture, especially the little boy he was so candid.



Emely + Sean

The Cubans know how to Party! Emely and Sean through a very lavish wedding at Casa del Mar in Santa Monica, the original details of the wedding were pulled together by the creative works of Rachel Hollis from Chic Events. The gorgeous dress that Emely wore was by Ines Di Santo, I just loved the beading on the top bodes. They brought in a Cuban band with bongo drums to keep the Cuban theme enhanced. I loved photographing their wedding, you could just tell by how relaxed they were that they were so in love and ready to get married.


Surfer Girl Alexa

Alexa is one of my favorite clients to shoot. She is so natural and strikingly beautiful. I was able to capture these stunning images at El Matador State Beach. It was an extremely windy day out, but it made the photo shoot.


Tori and Dean: sTORIbook Weddings: Brenda and Oliver

Brenda and Oliver had a lovely, romantic, Argentine inspired wedding at the Hyatt in Huntington Beach. Their ceremony we held outside on the lawn and their reception was held in a gorgeous room that the Hyatt had never used for a reception before. Brenda wanted to surprise Oliver with a gift on their wedding day. She decided to get him a puppy and Oliver surprised Brenda with a picture he painted. Something that they didn’t air was the Argentina dancers Tori and Dean surprised the couple with. It was a beautiful event. Congratulations Brenda and Oliver!
