This is my little space on the internet where I wear my heart on my sleeve, where I keep it real and above all, where I hope to encourage others. I share my life with you, not because I think I’m awesome, but because I believe that life is meant to be shared. And maybe, just maybe, God will use my story, experiences and randomness to encourage you in your life.
When Bianca first contacted me about her + Michael’s Mexican/Filipino Desert-themed California wedding, I thought ‘I have to shoot this wedding!’. Thankfully my dreams came true :).
They did such a fantastic time executing the theme. The details and colors had me swooning! The only thing that was easier to photograph were the bride and groom themselves.
There love for one another is so evident, it definitely made my job an easy one :). On top of that, they treated me and my second shooter for the day (Brian of Pixel That Photography) with such kindness and gratitude. It’s couples like them that make my job everything that it is.
Bianca+Micahel, congrats again on your new life together. It was an honor to share in your day with you. I hope these images allow you to relive the joy and beauty of it all.

I was so grateful that Brian was able to capture this series below.

This ring shot? It makes me swoon. Thank you Brian and thank you 100 2.8 macro!
Their peach and mint desert-themed details stole my heart…
Amazing live music!
Even the bride and groom joined in!
