Okay. Super dope couple – check, amazing prep location – check, every wedding should be at Stone Brewery – CHECK! What’s so good about having a STONE BREWERY WEDDING you might ask? The list is lengthy and hoppy, but in all seriousness it’s actually pretty damn amazing. In this world of cookie cutter venues ( […]

Living up here in North LA it’s not easy finding a local spot that offers that nice forest look as well as rocky mountains. For engagement sessions I really try to stay away from the average park, although there are a couple I really like. For Traci and Ernesto we chose to do a CORRIGANVILLE […]

Where to even begin with these two. In all honesty I could stop writing now because whatever follows will never do justice to how epic Chantelle and Eriks VICEROY L’ERMITAGE BEVERLY HILLS WEDDING was. Not only was this wedding a cornerstone for me but the team of incredible vendors that was assembled truly out did […]

Jing and Dean was referred to me by Heather Brunsell of Forever & Always Weddings and Events . If you’ve ever worked with her you’d know she has some really rad clients and […]
