These two are expecting their baby boy very soon! Becky is having a nautical themed baby shower, so she wanted to have her maternity session at an ocean venue. It was the perfect place to capture these gorgeous shots! I really enjoyed my time with them! Congratulations to the both of you! :)
Okay. I was seriously DYING over this photo shoot. She is the CUTEST, and the outfits that her momma picked out for this session had me “ooohing” and “aaaahhhing” the whole time! Those lace leggings and princess crown, I mean come on!!! So precious! I wish we had someone photographing the adults being so super silly, trying to get this sweet baby to smile. Always cracks me up how funny you have to get to get those priceless grins! Happy First Birthday, little one!!
Chris and Kaylee’s wedding reception was held at the Trump National Golf Club in Rancho Palos Verdes. It is a stunning location, where the balcony from the banquet room overlooks the Pacific Ocean. Two of Chris and Kaylee’s passions are wine and music, and their party reflected those, greatly! The reception was one of a kind, where the guests were entertained by talented music artists, including Moi Navarro, Katie Ohh, Shawn Hook, Jeremy Koff, and yet another surprise artist from Chris to Kaylee, Jon McLaughlin. Wedding guests were given a USB thumb drive, including songs from all of the artists that played that afternoon. Each table had a featured wine that matched the name of its table. I loved the unique guest book idea, signing the wine bottles at each table. The toasts given by friends and family, were special and heartfelt, with a common theme throughout being how special Chris and Kaylee are, such giving, authentic, and caring people. Everyone had a good laugh, as the bride and groom shared their story of their first date, a Taylor Swift concert! It was the perfect wedding day!
The wedding was at the beautiful Wayfarer’s Chapel, also known as the “Glass Church” in Rancho Palos Verdes. What an AMAZING location for a wedding!! You could feel the excitement from everyone, as family and friends gathered together from near and far, to celebrate Chris and Kaylee. Chris had a special surprise musical guest for Kaylee as she walked down the aisle, the very talented Tyrone Wells. She was definitely surprised! These two are so much fun, and their wedding was filled with lots of laughter and love. Em and I loved every second of capturing this special day!
Kaylee is seriously one of the sweetest people I have ever met. When she and Chris announced their engagement, I was so giddy with excitement for the two of them. When they called and asked me to do their wedding photos, I was thrilled! It was such an honor to be a part of such a special day, celebrating two wonderful friends! The day started at this gorgeous beach house, overlooking the cliffs of Palos Verdes. Kaylee was absolutely radiant as she primped and prepared for her groom. Family and friends helped her get ready, and everyone tried their best not to shed any tears, as to not mess up any makeup! My amazing photog sis-in-love, Emily Rickard, and I loved capturing every minute! Here’s the beginning to the story of the most perfect wedding day!
The drive up the mountain was so refreshing, as my partner in crime, Emily Rickard and I, headed up to shoot a wedding in Big Bear, California. It was the perfect day for a fall wedding! The leaves were turning to gorgeous shades of red, yellow, and brown. As we drove up to the location for the wedding, we both were taken aback at the gorgeous cabin! We were excited to get started at capturing the wonderful moments of Josh and Taylor’s day!
I always love the energy of the bride and bridesmaids, as they rush around getting ready. Taylor’s bridesmaids were so sweet as they primped and pampered her. Even her flower girl got in the action, helping with the final accessories.
Josh and Taylor wanted to wait to see each other, until that moment she was walking down the aisle. So they decided to take a few minutes together before the ceremony, just to pray, and calm their nerves. I love the expressions on their faces, as they are praying together.
This was a really fun session! Miss Bailey has lots of girly girl attitude and she had Nicole and me cracking up the whole time. She pretty much directed our session, with all of the ideas and poses she had planned! I really love the precious moments caught between momma and daughter here. So much love and laughter, too!! You girls are gorgeous!
Eddie and Cheryl are long time friends of ours. I was thrilled to get to do their family maternity session for them! They are really excited about baby #3, especially because they are having a girl!! Cheryl really wanted to celebrate their new arrival with lots of pink accents and fun girly props. I loved how the whole family tied in the pink in adorable ways! Congratulations on your sweet baby girl!!
