A Complete Guide to San Diego

I love living in San Diego and I'm so grateful for the life I get to live here! I grew up in North County, Encinitas to be exact. And now we are living closer to the Downtown area. I've been scheming up for awhile now this San Diego guide, as a reference for my family and friends for when they're here visiting. This is a list of my favorite places to eat, where to go and favorite beaches up and down the San Diego coast!

I am thrilled to share these photos from my session with my dear friends Jessica & Tad! The reason for this session was to announce their pregnancy!! Jessica is a fellow photographer and so I wanted to make these photos extra special for her. We had so much fun with this short session, and they were troopers for hoping in the water!

This happy couple got married at the San Diego California Temple this week, and I was thrilled to be able to capture this special moment for them!

Some people think that longer session time = more photos. And while that technically can be true, even in short periods of time we are able to get some amazing shots with tons of variety. Shayla was one of my mini session giveaway winners, and we had such a great time!

Gypsy Bride

At the beginning of the year I had the honor to collaborate with Gypsy Bride. A bridal dress company with BEAUTIFUL, unique and bohemian pieces. I'm in love with all the lacy and pretty details on each dress. Some of my very favorite work happened during these two shoots with Gypsy Bride. And I'm so giddy to share a glimpse into our shoot with you!

Jager Family

I was so happy to be able to photograph the Jager family while they were visiting California. We headed up to San Clemente and found an awesome spot with a little bit of cliffs, greenery and of course the beautiful beach! We were so lucky to have an AMAZING sunset to finish the night off.
