Fun – Exciting – Professional

Michael + Magdalena

Michael + Magdalena were married in beautiful Topanga Canyon, CA. They chose one of the most beautiful venues possible for their wedding! Inn of the Seventh Ray nestled in the lush nature of the surrounding area giving the ceremony and reception a warm and inviting feel. From the moment that Michael + Magdalena met eyes on this beautiful July afternoon everyone present knew that they would be together forever.

Their love story is truly an inspirational one; meeting in NYC at a Yoga Studio only to be separated by 3,000 miles shortly after. Then a chance meeting again in Los Angeles and instantly the chemistry they had once felt came rushing back. Their chemistry blossomed into love even with the pressures of a long distance relationship, showing that they will be able to last the test of time!

Thank You Michael & Magdalena for choosing me to capture your special day and making me feel like part of the family! Cheers to the many years that you will enjoy together!

Bryan + Angela

Bryan + Angela were married in beautiful Camarillo, CA at St. Mary Magdalen Chapel, such an amazing venue! The wedding day was a true reflection of their love and faith. Being able to see each moment unfold behind the camera was almost unreal; from the moment that the chapel doors opened and Angela walked through you could see Bryan filled with such joy. Both of them so excited to celebrate their union and begin their life together almost forgot their first kiss, which happened at the end of the aisle in the warm beautiful California sunlight. The reception was held in Somis, CA on a beautiful orchard where the dancing and their wild side came out. Listening to the toasts brought lots of smiles, heartwarming feelings and laughter to the happy couple and their guest. Shortly following was their first dance with a spectacular song choice of “I Need You” by Tim McGraw.  The dance floor then opened up and everyone joined in to celebrate the marriage of the beautiful new couple Bryan & Angela Martin and what a celebration is was!

I am so grateful that I was chosen to photograph their wedding and get to know Bryan & Angela. It was truly a pleasure to experience their love and be able to say that I have gained two new friends. Wish them the best in their journey together and know that it is going to be one that is filled with love & beauty. Congratulations!
