Savanna : Class of 2014 : Senior Portrait Photographer

This is Savanna.
She is graduating from a High School in Arizona this year. 

Her Aunt is my good friend ( who was the beautiful maternity session at the beach, a few months ago! ) 

Clearly, beauty runs in this family. And what makes it even better, 
Savanna is incredibly sweet, articulate, and intelligent. 

I was thrilled to get her green eyes and radiant red hair in front of my camera! 

I came across this empty lot earlier this day as I was driving to meet my family for brunch. Completely by default, but I knew it would be the perfect for spot for this session... and many more in the future. With it's wide open space, I was able to capture the beautiful golden light just before sunset. It was an amazing session, with an amazing subject!  

Enjoy your senior year. Thank You for letting me document this time in your life.
You were just perfect... I hope you forever enjoy these images! 

This was a senior session in Manhattan Beach, California.

Maria + Alex : Palos Verdes Wedding Photographer Santa Monica Wedding Photographer

I received a facebook message from Maria, explaining they were going to be having a destination wedding and they were looking for a wedding photographer. 

Destination wedding? 

Within a few messages, I learned that Maria and Alex were from Russia and would be traveling all the way to California with only 8 of their close friends and her parents. 

I was thrilled when they chose me to document this special day. 

They rented a beautiful home in Santa Monica... This was where they chose to get to ready. 

Their ceremony was at the gorgeous Wayfarers Chapel, followed by an intimate dinner back at the house. 

It was a chilly, December day, but these beautiful people were so happy and in love- 
the cold, brisk ocean air didn't faze them one bit. 

Maria + Alex, 

Thank You for choosing me to photograph your very special destination wedding. 
You two are beautiful, inside and out... you compliment eachother perfectly. 
I hope you forever enjoy these images, and I hope I captured every perfect moment, perfectly. 

Cheers! xo
