jon + stephanie: love abound + a parade of succulents at the colony house, anaheim california

Weddings & Engagement
May 22, 2017

stephanie + jonathan are the easy going, fun couple that loves nothing more than a fun day at disneyland + maybe spending time outdoors with their dogs. Their engagement session, as you may remember, featured the latter.

for their wedding day they chose romantic details swirled in succulents at the colony house in anaheim, California. the venue is crisp + lovely with minimal details, a great cocktail space with big open windows, the most amazing yellow couch + a giant succulent wall on the outdoor patio. The setting was filled with lush details in rustic tones + greenery all around – props to jenifer at Klink Events!

they opted for a first look behind the succulent wall, bridal party photos in the same spot as well as upstairs by the bar + the ceremony took place at St. Norbert’s Catholic Church. we did some romantic sunset photos around the grounds and outside of the colony house and finished the night off with dancing + merriment for all.

idk. all good things with this one.

Rachel + Nick: Half Moon Bay Engagement Session
This is the day that the rain was kind. It was ominous all week + all morning before I headed up to the Fitzgerald Marine Reserve just above Half Moon Bay to shoot Rachel + Nick's engagement photos. Typically, the rain is always welcome in my book but we really hoped it would clear up for this shoot so we could have a bit of variety. The afternoon was crystal clear, even with a bonus touch of sunshine. The Reserve had all kinds of beautiful areas to use as our backdrop. Rachel and I immediately bonded on our mutual affection for Anthropologie. It was so fun watching these two just play. They are such kids at heart + so crazy in love. Ca ...

Hollywood Glam + The Stage: Theater Wedding in Lake Merritt
This bride and groom pair were true children of the theater and as a theater major I felt right at home. First look photos were insanely dramatic on the empty stage with the gorgeous deep red curtains. For the bridal party photos we first did a cast photo from A Chorus Line, naturally, and then swung out the piano for a song and dance number. It was SUCH fun. The look of the venue paired perfectly with the vintage heirlooms the bride used including her great grandmothers necklace. This pair looked like they walked straight out of an old Hollywood Film. I loved sharing their day and witnesses their love story.
