Gina & Matt - Monterey Museum of Art {Part 1}

This blog post has taken me a bit to put together. There were too many I wanted to include. So because of that I'm breaking it into two posts!! This was a destination wedding for the couple and their family and friends. Everyone came in from the east coast for their celebration. Luckily they had enlisted the help of planner extraordinaire Nicole Lisanne. She helped coordinate a perfect event!

Gina and I had a long conversation on the phone prior to their wedding as we had never actually meet before the day of. Gina's words to me were, We want to have a photo session along the 17 mile drive. And she meant it! We had a wonderful two hours to take photos of them and their family along the drive. Not only did they get to enjoy the beautiful scenery California has to offer but we were able to get some fabulous photos!! Congrats to Gina and Matt!

Here are the fabulous vendors who made this day happen:
Coordinator - Nicole Lisanne Weddings & Events By Design
Reception - Monterey Museum of Art
Caterer - Grapes of Wrath
Flowers - Precious & Blooming Floral Design
DJ - Big Fun DJ
Rentals - Hartmann Studios

Gina wore the earrings and necklace that her grandfather had given her grandmother.

Their dog Dodger got to get dressed up for the occasion as well!

Check back soon for post number 2 and a slideshow of their day!

Lily & Gus {Engaged}

This will probably be my last blog post for a week or so as I'm headed to Vegas for the Wedding and Portrait Photographer's International convention. This will be my fifth year! Wow, time flies by when you're doing what you love. I can't wait to learn new and exciting things to better my business. I will leave you with Gus and Lily's engagement session. I can't wait for their wedding next month!

Susal Family

What an adorable family! Sofia is one of the cutest and happiest kids I've met. I had such a great time spending the afternoon with them!

Kim & Gareth - Villa Montalvo

Kim & Gareth were married on what turned out to be a lovely day last month. Up until the last minute we were worried about rain but luckily our concerns were unfounded and they were able to keep their ceremony outside. We also took advantage of the gorgous surrondings of Villa Montalvo . Congrats to Kim and Gareth!!
