Bret and Meg got married and it was pretty much awesome.
From their fun little decor touches to their quirky, heartfelt ceremony I loved every minute of the wedding and I feel safe in saying their guests did too. It's weddings like this that make me feel lucky to have the job that I do :)
The day started as most do with all the VIP's helping the bride and groom get ready. Meg's dress was sooo pretty! I love all the soft layers...
Meg was so calm and collected...
Their suite at the Brea Embassy Suites had the most beautiful windows... I could have shot in front of them all day.
One of my favorites of the day:
The guys have it so easy... they're dressed in all of 15 minutes!
Look! Pretty ladies!
I'm amazed I got such a serious photo out of these funny guys...
Spring is such a beautiful time to get married... the light and the colors are perfect:
Bret was all smiles, I loved it!
Since Bret and Meg decided to keep to the tradition of seeing each other for the first time at the ceremony, we did their romantic photos during cocktail hour... this next one is another of my favorites. The late afternoon light was amazing.
Paul, from Boffo Video, brought along this ampersand and was kind enough to let me snag it for a shot...
The dance party was definitely fun :)
And lastly, the rings! I'm loving all the intricate detail on Meg's rings... great for fun light :)

This family photo shoot was in an amazing Mid Century Modern house in Hollywood. I seriously could have shot in there all day... the light, landscaping, and architecture were so inspiring!
And then there was Baron... he is one cute kid:
Dad uses this house as an office and gallery for his art collection... Baron likes to use it for climbing :)
His crawling 'style' is pretty cute :)
You can't see her, but Grandma was putting on quite a show for Baron behind me...
Omigosh, he is just perfect :)
Baron's outfits were beyond adorable... mom did a great job picking them out.
One of my favorites of the day... don't know why exactly. Maybe it's the simple lines and textures.
Mr. Serious for a second...
What a little model! He looks so GQ :)
He had so much fun pounding on the keyboard here... I hope he didn't break it!
Give me a white wall and some window side light and I'm a happy camper... add a cute kid and I'm in heaven!
To end the session Baron got to dig into his very own cake... he was a bit put off at the beginning, but Mom showed him what to do...
... but 2 seconds later he was over it! I love his pouty face!
And that's all for now! I have a few weddings to share with you later this week... keep your eye out!
Hello there! Just thought I'd share a quick little peak at this sweet little family's portraits :) You can definitely tell Spring is almost here with the bright colors and warm light...
Dimitri is such a sweet older brother...
You've heard me say it before, but I just love repeat clients :) I've been photographing this family since Mom and Dad got married in 2009 and watching them grow into a family of 4 has been nothing short of amazing.
Big sister, Sophia, just loves Kennedy:
My favorite of the day and I can't even take full credit for it! Sophia came wondering into the room and asked if she could be in the photo too...
I just love a simple portrait like this:
Aren't they the sweetest family?
As always, thanks for looking!
Livienne is growing so fast! It really seems like I just did her newborn photos last month! Here are a few of my favorite photos from her 9 month photo shoot :)
I love all the facial expressions she goes through:
Jazzy is such a sweet older sister...
Livi was feeling very serious while I was there... still adorable though!
And, of course, we had to get both girls in Dad's car for a few!
And that's all for now! Keep an eye out for Livi's first year shoot coming up in April :)
