Nautical Laguna Beach Wedding

I am so excited to share my images from the Shoot This Not That workshop I participated in last month at the Surf And Sand Resort in Laguna Beach!  Hosted by super fab stylist Summer Watkins of Grey Likes Weddings, it was a day full of inspiration, education, and a gorgeous wedding shoot.  Summer pulled together an amazing group of talented vendors to create this lovely beachside wedding, and every last detail was simply perfect.  Love, love, love the navy, blush and gold color scheme!

Special thanks to mentor photographers Troy & Aimee Grover, and guest speaker Jeannie Savage of Details Details!

Monday Mixtape - Holiday Wishes

The holiday season is in full swing... and I'm finally getting started on my Christmas shopping.  Every year I plan to get a head start.  So I buy one or two gifts in the summer, and then make the mistake of actually believing I'm ahead of the game... and, um... don't think about it again until December rolls around.  And, of course, now I'm behind!  But it's okay, I have it under control; I have a list and it's all up in here (insert picture of me tapping my finger to my temple).

I may even find time to make my own Christmas wish list :)

Monday Mixtape - O Christmas Tree

The adventures of cutting down our own Christmas tree...

 Thanks to Jim & Mary's Tree Farm!  The kids had a blast exploring, finding sticks, petting the dog, and feeding the horse... and the fresh baked cookies were a perfect treat at the end of our visit!
