Yosemite National Park Engagement Session

One of my favorite parts of my job is getting to know my clients. I work with a huge variety of clientele from doctors to fellow photographers which gives me so many opportunities to learn new things. These two Austinites now live in San Diego working on their residency and fell in love with Yosemite on a recent trip and wanted to have their engagement session there. I had never been and while enticed by the idea upon the initial suggestion, I put my bar too low for the location. HOLY MOLY this place was breathtakingly beautiful. Like one of those spots you just can’t take a bad photo at; add the adorable Thao & Doug to the mix and I felt like the universe was handing me gold. I think my next stop should be Yellowstone, who wants to be photographed there? :)

Hawaii is absolutely one of the most beautiful places I have ever been, so I was beyond excited at the opportunity to go for a second time last spring. I brought along my good friend and fellow wedding photographer, Lindsey Thorne, to photograph the wedding with me. Sarah & Miguel had friends and family from all over the world meet them in paradise to celebrate their long awaited union at St. Augustine By the Sea. After the ceremony we wandered the beach amongst the tourists soaking sun and slowly made our way to the reception at the Terrace at The Hyatt Regency overlooking Waikiki beach. The next morning we got up at 4:30 in the morning to have a day after session at sunrise, it was difficult to pull ourselves out of bed but it was worth the journey. We wandered over sharp rocks and got splashed by water as I covered my camera with my dress at every wave. Thank you Sarah & Miguel for going on the adventure with us and for treating us to Leonard’s donuts afterwards.

Robyn has been a mutual friend of mine for many years but it wasn’t until recently that I got to know and love her. We immediately clicked thanks to our similar personalities and am super bummed that they recently made the move to Las Vegas for Keegan’s job. Luckily, with our group being full of nomads, I still get to see my distant friends often. This past July a group of 10 of us, organized by my good friends Jona & Jerry, made a trip out to Croatia to enjoy the Mediterranean sunshine. Initially, we weren’t planning on doing a big session, just a few photos at sunrise to capture the beauty of Split without a swarm of tourists. However, I was so inspired at 5am by this charming city that I couldn’t help myself to continue on, dragging them around and up to the top of the hill for 2 hours. We can all agree though that it was absolutely worth the post shoot exhaustion and nothing that a nap on the beach couldn’t cure. I am so happy to have gotten to know both of them even better on this trip and look forward to not only visiting them in their new home but also shooting their wedding day in one of my favorite cities, San Francisco, next May.

I am thankful to find myself in Washington D.C. once or twice a year, I’ve grown to love this metropolis and the its’ photogenic architecture. Jen & Aaron found me thanks to Deirdre & Beau’s New Orleans wedding a few years ago. Their wedding was at the Carnegie Institution for Science but we made sure to venture out the Lincoln Memorial for portraits before the ceremony. So many tears shed, beautiful couple, and iconic backdrops made this wedding feast for my artistic soul. Thank you again Jen & Aaron for bring me out to D.C. to be a part of your big day.
