Thousand Oaks Bridal Shoot | Ryan and Tenley

Last month I had a fun mini-styled bridal shoot in Thousand Oaks with the sweetest couple, Ryan and Tenley. A big thank-you to two amazing vendors, Edith-Elan Bridal based in Chicago and florist Unique Floral Design of Simi Valley who contributed their talents to the shoot and made it extra special! Wildwood Park in Thousand Oaks was a great location for this great-outdoors and wild-flower inspired shoot. Enjoy!



Malibu Anniversary| Taylor and David

Over Thanksgiving weekend it was my honor to capture Taylor and David’s anniversary session. They now live in Reno but were in SoCal visiting family for the holiday and I was tickled when they chose me to be the one to photograph it! We started out at Charmlee Wilderness Park in Malibu where David wore his National Guard uniform (who doesn’t love a man in uniform?!) and Taylor wore a stunning red dress. Once finished we hurried down the mountain to El Matador State Beach to chase the sunset. The beach was PACKED with multiple tourist groups, other shoots going on, and we even passed by a proposal that was about to happen! Regardless of the crowd, we found our own little spot on the beach and you would never know there were 100+ others out there that day. Taylor and David were an absolute dream to work with and I LOVE their photos. When we were just about done, I asked if there were any other shots they wanted, when Taylor asked if I could get some of them playing in the water. Um..YES!! The fact that they got into the freezing cold Pacific Ocean at the end of November was so awesome and I love daring couples like them! Also, as a military wife myself, it is very important to me to say thank you to David for his service to our country! Cheers to Taylor and David..One year down, forever to go!
