Andrea & Dave | Joshua Tree Engagement

I met Andrea and Dave for the first time when we met in Joshua Tree for their engagement. That can sometimes feel like a blind date, not really sure what you’re walking into but the moment she stepped out of the car in that red dress I knew it was going to be a good time. Really looking forward to their wedding at the Smog Shoppe in November!

Palm Springs Avalon Wedding | Hillary & Matt

These two babes got married at the Avalon Hotel in one of my favorite places for any wedding, Palm Springs. Feels like anytime I’m shooting a Palm Springs wedding it brings the best couples, light, and style. From my first conversation with Hillary, I knew her wedding was something I didn’t wanna miss and I’m so thankful I didn’t have to. Hillary and Matt are all of the good things- fun, loving, silly and I mean, they ended the night by jumping in the pool in their wedding dress and suit…my kind of people.palm springs wedding photographergorgeous bridesmaid shoesbride writing her vows to her soon to be husbandbride getting ready on her wedding dayher vows bookcreative getting ready imageshusband and wife wedding photography team from orange county
