      Rachel & Dallas, San Diego Temple Wedding & Beach Bridal Session

      Rachel and Dallas!! I don’t even know what to say about these two. Dallas is a towering 6’5″, and she is a petite maybe 5’3″? Which, of course, can make doing a sweet, intimate, romantic bridal session just a little bit harder due to their height difference! The good news? They were absolutely crazy for...

          Michael + Samantha The Fairmont in Santa Monica, Ca, Wedding

          Its always an interesting phone call when a future bride calls you, and immediately says- my fiancé and I both hate photos. AGH! Talk about a scary moment!

Slight drizzle, drops here and there, yes. Rain in the morning only to clear up before the ceremony? Yes....
