Dapper Day shoot with Dolly Couture Preview


After a whirlwind weekend in Anaheim at the Dapper Day Fall Expo, I was so stoked to get to the blog and share some images.  Not only did I get to share a table with Dolly Couture! We got to meet a lot of awesome brides together at the expo.  On Sunday we took the time to show off some of those incredible dresses around Disneyland and the Disneyland Hotel.  Thanks so much to Jessica and Cambria for modeling some beautiful wedding gowns to make some pretty photographs.

After having a very private ceremony with family an ...

Kelly + Scott | Gorgeous Summer Wedding at Sequoyah Golf Course
This beautiful wedding was shot at the Sequoyah Golf Course in Oakland this past year. Not gonna lie, it was probably one of those most fun events I’ve had in a while. Life gets crazy sometimes. Unfortunately due to hectic schedules for the couple, there wasn't a chance for us to spend a lot of time together before the big day. Lucky for me though, Scott and Kelly are freaking awesome. I am still amazed about how easy going and open of a couple they were. It wasn’t much into the wedding before I felt I had made new friends with them and the family. You could really tell how close all of their family and friends are. They all have been togeth ...
