Jessie and Mark's Mexican Inspired Fiesta Wedding in Cardiff by the Sea

Jessie and Mark's Cardiff by the Sea Lodge Encinitas Wedding-19.jpg

Yesterday’s Wedding Fiesta here in Cardiff was so unbelievably fun! Mark and Jessie, and their entire family partied it up right on the sand in my home town. These two are always down for an adventure, from their travel around the world to their wedding day. They were up for anything! After getting ready at the cozy cute Cardiff by the Sea Lodge, we were able to shoot their intimate first look on the rooftop of the inn, with 180 degree views of the ocean as their backdrop. Jessie stunned in her gorgeous lace dress, and Mark’s jaw literally dropped when he saw his gorgeous bride.

After we left the Inn, we cruised the 101 into Encinitas and got some amazing shots with the classic red VW van they rented for the day. We made a pit stop at Swami’s and made sure to grab a few more shots with the van before we headed to their Seaside ceremony site. It was a blast! I especially loved that once we got to the ceremony everyone kicked off their sandals and was barefoot the rest of the evening. And my favorite part of this party, was the theme. Margaritas on the beach, delicious tacos and colorful florals everywhere.

Congrats Mark and Jessie! I hope you love this sneak peak, and I had a blast capturing your day!

Foster Family Session at Tide Park Beach, Solana Beach

Foster Family Session Solana Beach Tide Park Beach 2017-3.jpg

One more family session in the books before the end of the year! We laughed, we jumped, we played all on a warm December day in Solana Beach with the Gorgeous Foster family. Have you eve been to Tide Park Beach in Solana Beach? It is beautiful and quiet and the perfect spot to take family pictures in December. Doing family sessions like this one, makes me so thankful for this is my job, and even more thankful that I live in such a beautiful and wonderful place.

This sweet family reached out last minute to do a session, and honestly it was so much fun! I love the aspect of my job where I get to meet new people, and the benefit of that perk is making new friends. So Happy Holidays Fosters! I hope you love this sneak peak and I can't wait to get you the rest of these darling pictures.

The Dougher's Fall Family Session In San Marcos, CA

Dougher Family Session San Marcos 2017-1.jpg

I love this time of year, because not only do I get to see family, but I get to reconnect with some of my favorite friends and their sweet families. This past weekend I got to work with this sweet family, the Dougher's. This is our 4th session, and no matter how many times I say it, it really is a blessing in my life to get to document a family as wonderful as they are over time.

I love getting to see the kids grow and change. I love getting to play with your kids and making you smile.  Thank you Sheena and especially Joe, for being so patient and kind and continuing to work with me every year. I am so lucky to have been able to be apart of your families journey and I am so excited to continue that through the years. 

I am one blessed lady!
