It all lead to this moment.... It took 5 years of a long distance relationship between Ryley and Allen to get to this beautiful moment right here. Emotions were flying high to say the least! From meeting in college in North Carolina, to Allen moving to New Zealand to finish his schooling to become a doctor, to trying to get through getting Canadian citizenship, I’m sure Ryley and Allen didn’t know if they would ever get to this moment right here. In 5 years, all they had were moments. Time to visit each other and travel, yes, but that moment where you can wake up to your love one every day, they’ve never had that. So, on their wedding day, as their dreams became a reality, both Ryley and Allen (and everyone in the crowd, including this photographer) , was overcome with emotion. Because in this moment, they finally became one, husband and wife. Congratulations Mr. And Mrs. Champagne 🍾! (Coolest last name ever right!) I wish you guys a lifetime of happiness!!!

I am attracted to beautiful light. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Beautiful light in the sky. Beautiful light that radiates from someone smile. Beautiful light in my images. Beautiful light that shines from someone’s aura. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ When I leave this planet I would like to be remembered as bringing light into just one person’s life!

I just can’t get over how STUNNING Kaily and Christer’s San Diego wedding was! Surrounded by their closest family and friends, they said their I Do’s as the ocean air blew, the sun, that hadn’t come all day shined, and Christer cried as Kaily walked down the aisle to the song from Disney’s Up! It was the most perfect day! Venue: Martin Johnson House Dress: @nicolemillernyc Florals: @lajollaflorist HMU: @jt_hairandmakeup Wedding Planner and Catering: @theabbeycatering

Julian and Ashley’s sunrise Engagement session was just spectacular! 💕 It of course rained so much that week, and we even woke up and got to Lanikai Beach, which was an hour drive for them, to have it rain on us that morning out of nowhere! 💕 But we all were determined to make this session happen! 💕 So, up we were the next morning at 4am, crossing our fingers and hoping for the best! 💕 And luckily, the best happened! 💕 I am so incredibly excited to capture their wedding next year at @haikumill ! If it’s anything like their engagement session, it will be one for the books!!

“Think of the one thing that you’ve always wanted. Now find it in your mind’s eye and feel it in your heart.” – Beast 🥀 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Let me tell you about my real life Disney couple right here! 🥀 Now, Khrystian is no beast whatsoever. 🥀 But, the love that he has for his Princess Ashley, who so happens to love Disney and Belle as much as I do, really replicates the love in their favorite fairytale! 🥀 I mean, he proposed at Disneyland, at Christmas time, with him in a blue suit, and Ashley dressed like Belle! 🥀 Does it really get any better than that? Swipe to see their engagement at Disneyland (I took it from your page Ashley ;)) 🥀 I had such a blast getting to "officially" meet Ashley and Khrystian for their Hawaii engagement session, as they plan their Hawaii wedding for next year!!

There is nothing more rare, nor more beautiful, than a woman being unapologetically herself; comfortable in her perfect imperfection. To me, that is the true essence of beauty. Steve Maraboli

That moment when your happily ever after begins! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I love capturing every aspect of a wedding day, but once the vows are done, there’s this beautiful sigh of relief! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ After months of planning, they made it to this moment of pure bliss. All the dreams of the future is in front of them, the ones they love the most surround them, and their legacy truly starts as they walk down the aisle, hand in hand, in marriage! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ And I get to capture the moments so they can relieve that feeling over and over again, for the rest of their lives. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What an honor!
