Mabel + Ken = Lavender Style


This title will make more sense when I have time next week to show you all of the gorgeous details Ken and Mabel used to integrate her favorite color.  In the meantime, here are two of my favorite images of Mabel!

It never hurts to ask ...


We all can't afford a luxury yacht, but we can borrow one!   A kind owner offered his boat to our couple for photographs, and they were some of our favorites of the day.  I wonder what we can borrow next?

Whimsical with a Modern Twist

This is one of my favorite color palettes of the season - very chic, modern, but still a bit playful.  Beautiful work, Bella Signature!

Rachel and Brett = Natural Glamour

This was my first ceremony on the outside terrace at the Newcastle Golf Club, and I fell in love with the ambiance the gorgeous view created.  The only draw-back was the wind - you will notice that Rachel lost her veil part way through the ceremony!  Fortunately an agile groomsman was able to rescue it just before it blew down the hill.

Angie + Ahn Ahn = Urban Style

Everyone was up for an adventure last weekend, so the whole wedding party went on an excursion to the OSP!  Early next week I will post a few more images from our travels, but I wanted to give you something to enjoy for the weekend.  :)

The Obsession Continues

I photographed my wedding this weekend adorned with a gorgeous necklace from Abaloria, and I think about 10 guests asked me where I got it!  For those who inquired, it was from Abaloria, a custom jewelry boutique owned by my friend Brandy.  Here are a few shots of some of her latest work that we did for her website ... stunning!

Sharon + Jantzen = Joy

Saturday was such a fun day!  Despite a few unexpected events (including the closing of I-520!), Sharon and Jantzen embraced the day in a way that showed just how deeply they are committed to each other and how much they enjoy their time together.  They actually got me choked up a few times!  :)

The Defining Moment

On every Wedding Day there are 'defining moments' - those bursts of energy which reveal the true joy and excitement of the Wedding Day.  My favorite defining moment of Katrin and Ryan's day was when they were walking up the aisle and Ryan couldn't resist taking Katrin in an embrace that literally swept her off her feet!

And, of course, a few of our other favorites ...Azzura_Photography_7_17_8_05.jpg

Cerena + John = An Unforgettable Afternoon

I would describe Cerena and John's Wedding Day as a perfect reflection of their spirit - joyful, inviting, and with a sense of the beginning of a fabulous journey together.  Even their boisterous yellow wedding colors gave a subtle nod to the light and fun tone of the day!Azzura_Photography_7_17_8_12.jpg
