Daniel & Megan - Holland Ranch Wedding, San Luis Obispo

I didn't meet Daniel & Megan until the day before their wedding, when we got together for their engagement session. But instantly I could tell that they might be two of the most chill people on the planet. The next day, when their sweet dog ran up and jumped on Megan's wedding dress, and she didn't bat an eye -- I knew my instincts had been correct. As if Megan's vivacious mermaid hair and Daniel's velvet jacket weren't eye-candy enough, their chemistry and "I can't get enough of you. EVER"-ness made for a wedding photographer's dream come true.

Ivan & Manny - Cambria Engagement Photos

I can tell how a couple is going to handle a lifetime together by the role laughter plays in their relationship.
And if my calculations are correct -- Ivan & Manny are going to be juuuuuuuuuuust fine.

Manny - Yoga Teacher

There is nothing like meeting someone for the first time, but feeling like you've known them for years.
Manny has an incredible golden energy that I connected to instantaneously.
Conversation with her was effortless, and her passion for wellness is contagious.
And time with her inspired me in more ways that she could possibly know.

"Before you leave, pease know this:
I'd rather be the girl
whose name dies at your lips
every time you try to speak of me,
than a girl you tell stories about at parties.

What I'm saying is this, darling.

I'd rather be your absinthe,
than your cup of tea."

Max & Sarah - Villa Montara Wedding

I first met Max when we were both 16 years old, in our awkward teenage prime. He loved silly adventures, make believe, and had a sense of humor unlike anyone I had encountered in my short life -- therefore, we were fast friends. Fast forward 12 years -- we lost touch somewhere after high school, and since then so much of life has happened to both of us. Max moved to Japan and became a teacher, where one spring under the cherry blossoms, he met Sarah. And as the fate would have it, I had since become a wedding photographer -- bringing our paths to cross once again. The universe is quite the snarky, mischievous gal.

And so, Max & Sarah were married surrounded by salty sea air and the closest of their friends & family. She wore her grandmother's dress & crown, and he couldn't peel his eyes off her for a moment. The day couldn't have been more perfect - cozy overcast vibes during the day, with a sunset that set my heart on fire.
