These two. Their wedding day was pure magic. Stephen and Lauren met in college at Point Loma Nazarene University and have been inseparable ever since. Warm summer air filled the Mission Asistencia in Redlands while their love ones gathered to join them as they became husband and wife. Their love for one another radiated and you couldn't help but be filled with joy in their presence. Stephen and Lauren shared heartfelt vows, danced the night away under twinkle lights and it all ended in fireworks (literally). It was such a special day and I was truly honored to be there to capture this moment in time.
How gorgeous is this girl?! Paige started off as a room mate that I had just met, and grew into one of my best friends. We spent the past year making daily trips to Peet's Coffee, popping late night popcorn and laughing to the tune of New Girl playing in our cozy living room. Paige is one of those friends that just gets you.
For her senior photos, we decided to explore Little Italy in San Diego. We bought some blooms from a local flower stand, made a few friends and spent the afternoon having a blast, per usual. Paige recently graduated from Point Loma Nazarene University with a degree in Child Development and is now headed to Santa Barbara to pursue her dream job. I couldn't be more proud of the women she is!
These two epitomize the idea of soul mates.
One year ago they embarked on the journey of marriage together with a beautiful ceremony in Tacoma, Washington. I was lucky enough to attend their charming wedding and now, a year later, lucky enough to document their first year of marriage! These two have become dear friends to me, and I am continually blessed by the positive light and contagious laughter they have brought into my life. Here's to many many more happy years for the two of you.
Lindsey is one of the sweetest souls I have ever come to know. I was lucky enough to call her a room mate the past year and it was nothing but non-stop laughter getting to live alongside her. I am so proud of Lindsey and her accomplishments. She graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Point Loma Nazarene University, and has since accepted a job at UCLA in the ICU. Beauty and brains, this lady is the real deal. I can't wait to see where life takes this wonderful friend of mine, and I was so honored that she chose me to document such a special time in her life. Congrats!
Every time I visit the Pacific Northwest I find myself in awe of its beauty. The rainy days, the coffee, the atmosphere-there's a kind of peace there that's unlike anywhere else. I always find myself lost in the sea of trees. One of the highlights of this trip for me was venturing to find the Vance Creek Bridge, pictured below.
Here's a glimpse into my adventures around the Olympic Peninsula. Enjoy!
