These two little besties were due for a photo shoot to capture the spirit of fun and adventure between them before we move to Oregon. We sure are going to miss Lanie and her awesome family. I truly wish we could take them with us.

*Special thanks to O’ Koo Ran in the Big Bear Village for letting our girls pose in their beautiful window display.*

Meeting these two was definitely in the cards for us I’d say. I was in a coffee shop waiting for another couple who I’d never met before. Sitting there for some time I started to wonder if maybe this cute, obviously in love, couple was the couple that I was supposed to meet that day. So I did what any normal person would do… I asked them. Nope. Not my appointment that day. Fifteen minutes pass and I start to wonder if maybe they misunderstood (not sure how you can misunderstand who you are or aren’t, but somehow I thought maybe, haha!), so I asked AGAIN! Yes, I did. “Are you sure you’re not the ones I’m waiting for?” And the rest is history! lol! I got to be the one to capture their gorgeous day with all their friends and family. These two thought of every detail for their day. Simon is a talented guy with wood and made all the cocktail tables and the coasters for their guests to take home. Their friends provided the most gorgeous property for them to host their reception at and even though the rain did threaten to put a “dampen” on things, I believe the good Lord blessed them instead with the billowy clouds and gorgeous colored skies for the backdrop to their day. The clouds never let down and the day was perfect. I’ll let the rest speak for itself. Thank you for peeking around at my work!

This wedding was just so beautiful and thoughtful. The family and wedding party stayed in a sprawling luxurious ranch together the few days before the wedding. And they worked on details and enjoyed much fellowship together. What was so apparent at this wedding was love. Lots of it. Love for each other and love for the Lord. Prayer was a big part of their day, and it was beautiful seeing them give Glory to God and ask Him for His leading in their marriage. Just beautiful. There were so many details about their day that made it so exquisite. I was so happy to be a part of it. Mike and Erika, thank you for choosing me! I hope that you cherish your photos as much as I loved taking them. May God bless each day that you have together and grow your love for each other and for Him. Enjoy!

Miss Sophia came to visit me from a long way away, with her beautiful family on Monday. At first she really wasn’t into our time together. She’d had a long night of no sleep and made Mom worry how the session would go. I admit I was a little worried too. But then we fed her, and soothed her, and OUT she went. She did a great job sleeping and looking beautiful so that I could capture these tiny moments of her new life. I can’t wait until Mom and Dad get to see the rest but for now here is a little sneak peek. Thank you B family for coming to my neck of the woods and trusting me to capture this wonderful time in your lives! Talk to you soon! xoxo

What a beautiful day this was. The love, the details, the intimate setting, the location, everything. Tiffanie and Eric are both designers so when we talked about their day I wasn’t prepared for the thoughtful details and ambience they were able to create. It was a small, but mighty wedding. And one I’ll not forget anytime soon. And I’m sure thier guests feel the same way as well. The couple is from Orange County but have often come to the mountains as a getaway, so Big Bear was the perfect destination for their nuptials. It was rainy and stormy the day before and I have to admit I was a little worried, but the sun came out and the day was just beautiful. I got to whisk them away for a little while to capture photographs all over Big Bear before heading to Knickerbocker Mansion for their beautiful dinner reception. Tiffanie and Eric, I wish you love that grows deep like the roots of a giant tree with each passing day, for a commitment that cannot be broken by the bumps in life, and the ability to choose love even when the feeling is sometimes not there. Happy Marriage!! Thank you for choosing me to be a part of your day! Talk to you soon!

xoxo
