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


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



Shayda + Andrew { Yorba Linda Black Gold Golf Course Wedding }

Shayda works with an old friend from childhood, and when he suggested me to shoot their wedding I just knew I would get along with these two. We met at Islands and bonded over the fact that we are both nerds and chatted about how important the people at their wedding were to them. Drama was also a 5 letter word.

Relaxing was the name of the game, so they planned on having a first look and getting 90% of the photos done before the ceremony. It worked out perfectly. After quickly finishing photos we had time to spare. The entire day the bridal party kept of mentioning how relaxed Shayda + Andrew were…and they seriously made the day so laid back. I <3 them.

P.S. Thanks Niall + Jessica for your help! And thank you Ben for connecting me to Shayda + Andrew! It was so fun to have a friend on the dance floor!
