Vintage Shoot

Alright. Here it is! 


This was such a fun afternoon. Alli (AKA Thrifted Queen) had this vision for MONTHS and we were finally able to get it together as a group to make her vision come alive. Alli found this incredible dress made by Jenny Packham at a local thrift store (in her true thrift fashion). She grew up here in Pacific Grove where her neighbors has this vintage 1957 Chevy and she had always imagined a photoshoot with it. Her hair just so happened to match at the time and she and her husband are celebrating their anniversary today! 


Take a peek and enjoy!

Hillary + Quinn // Big Sur Engagement

Happy Thursday everyone! 

I just started maternity leave yesterday (whoohoo!) and I’m just waiting for this little squish to make his debut into this crazy world. I struggle to just sit around so I thought I’d get busy and catch up on some blogging! 

I met Hillary YEARS ago when I was in undergrad pouring wine on the weekends. I always adored her and her ridiculously gorgeous long eye lashes. We’d chit chat in between rushes while she was waiting tables at the restaurant next door to the winery and then she moved away for college. Fast forward to a few years, she’s now engaged to Quinn! I was thrilled when she asked me to photograph their wedding and we read each other’s minds about where to shoot in Big Sur for their engagement shoot. We spent the afternoon chit chatting, talking wedding details, and plans for the future (Quinn is doing his rotation rounds for medical school). Being as pregnant as I was, I felt safe having Quinn in the car in case I spontaneously went into labor. Alas, I did not and we had a wonderful photoshoot! 

Check it out!  



Mattie + Peter // Big Sur Engagement

I have known Mattie since undergrad at CSU Monterey Bay (Go Otters!) and she and I have kept in touch as she has moved here, there, and everywhere! I was super excited when she got engaged and asked me to capture the love between her and dear Peter. You guys. These two are fricking HOT and so much fun to shoot! 

The redwoods of Big Sur have a way of beckoning you and making you feel at home. I feel so fortunate to live in such paradise. Mattie knew immediately this was where she wanted to shoot. Can’t wait for their big day in Oregon.
