I'm a lover of color, family, love, laughter + sunshine.


I also live on coffee + tacos, but what mom of toddlers doesn't?1



Shane + Charity { Temecula Wilson Creek Winery & Vineyard Wedding }

It’s been months since I’ve second shot a wedding. I was really missing it. Don’t get me wrong, I love being a main photographer…but being a second photographer kinda feels like a creative vacation. Can’t live there forever, but you can sure enjoy it.

So when Amanda Patrice emailed me and asked if I could help her shoot Shane + Charity’s wedding, I quickly moved around my calender to make it work. Working with Amanda is so fun, so I could only assume her couples are the same way!  It also helped that I was very familiar with the Wilson’s Creek Winery in Temecula since I shot a wedding there last year. No brainer 😉

I might of danced a little bit when I was packing my gear. No lie.

Shane + Charity have a 3 year old son, and he was the cutest thing ever. He was a part of the day as much as possible and was so well behaved I almost couldn’t believe he was 3. He also was a big helper.

Waiting for the first look…

After the first look and a few photos, Shane and Charity helped their son get dressed for the wedding. Again, my heart melted. <3

While Amanda was busy photographing important family photos, I started photographing reception details. Charity created the book + succulent center pieces for the long gorgeous tables.  So pretty.

Their little boy ran around (cutely) and gave everybody a thumbs up during the ceremony.

The barrel room at lit up…

Thank you Amanda for having me shoot alongside you!
