Ed & Picca are married! One of the most beautiful weddings I’ve ever had the pleasure of documenting. This was my second time shooting a wedding at Franciscan Gardens in San Juan Capistrano, and I love the place! It’s in the heart of San Juan Capistrano and the historic mission. The historic Los Rios district is literally right across the train track. There are just so many places to shoot for bridal portraits. It just so happen that Ed & Picca are a gorgeous couple as well. Tough day at the job, right? What’s even more unbelievable is that Picca conceptualized and DIY’ed most of the details for the  wedding! A seriously talented bride! Their beautiful DIY vintage wedding has a “story” theme running through the entire design. The seating cards were custom made to look like old library cards that we used to check out books. The backdrop for the sweetheart table and altar was a vintage fireplace.  An old china hutch acted as the perfect display case for the dessert bar. For their first look and most of the wedding portraits, we took them at San Juan Capistrano Mission and the surrounding Los Rios Historic District. I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day! Enjoy the photos!

downtown-los-angeles-engagement-pictures (25) Nate & Jen are engaged! This young stylish couple wanted a cool urban feel to their engagement session, and downtown Los Angeles provided the perfect backdrop! We started the session at the ever popular Disney Concert Hall and the surrounding area;  then moved onto  the artists district near 4th street. I haven’t shot in DTLA for a while now so it was fun for me! We even got to shoot on the 1st street bridge!  Thanks again to Nate & Jen for having me, can’t wait for your wedding early next year!

    Dara - Film has the same tactile sort of quality as a hand knit sweater, which is to say – you can tell that someone, a person, made the image. There’s so much nostalgia when I remember childhood summer days, walking my tiny Fujifilm canisters down to the corner store and coming back a week later to open a crisp paper envelope containing my 24 precious images. I’d love to capture that feeling again as an adult and a photographer, I imagine its a completely different experience than loading a shoot onto my Macbook. I’d love the chance to learn from Kirk and Jeremy, because I feel like they’re two photographers who have taken a craft and make it something great and then shared it with the community. That’s something worth aspiring to.ReplyCancel

aileen intro

I am very proud to announce our newest associate photographer Aileen!

I have been friends with Aileen for about 4-5 years now (has it been that long??) and she has been one of my go to 2nd photographers for the last few years. In addition to being an awesome photographer she’s just a joy to be around. I actually shot Aileen & Doug’s gorgeous destination wedding at Hans Fahden Vineyard in Calistoga last year! When Aileen and I started discussing about the possibility of bringing her onboard to be an associate photographer, I was super excited about the idea.  She shoots similar to my style and I trust her ability to capture our clients’ big day 100%. Two qualities I look for in my associate photographers. I think our clients will be very happy with her!  Here’s a little bio about Aileen from herself!

Photography has always been in my life and I owe my love for photography to my dad, who is also a great photographer.  Although I may have hated being in front of the camera as a child, I love staying behind it and capturing beauty through a viewfinder. Ansel Adams once said that a photograph is usually looked at – seldom looked into.  I love documenting the natural beauty and happiness of my couples while bringing out the uniqueness of people in love.  Images should be a reflection of who you are, individually and as a couple, and so I want my images to be unique to you.  I capture meaningful MOMENTS because this is how you’ll remember yourselves on your wedding day, and it is my job to document your story.  I feel blessed to be part of other people’s lives and to be witness to the joyous moments life has to offer.  I hope you’ll invite me to be a part of your story, too.I live in Los Angeles with my husband, Doug, and our baby boy, Mason. We also must not forget our first (fur) baby, Lucky — a 4-lb yorkie that thinks he’s bigger than he really is.  And from time to time, Doug and I enjoy training for half marathons and triathlons.  Things I LOVE… my family / peonies / bubble baths / dark chocolate / french macarons / black + white stripes / Audrey Hepburn / puppies.
- Aileen

Some examples of her work!
