Sweet couple, check. Vineyard, check. Lavender…omg…did you say lavender? CHECK CHECK CHECK.
I documented Quynh & Huy’s engagement on a very hot and sunny day while a gazillion bees swarmed around us, yet we escaped mostly unharmed. Malibu wine country makes for the perfect backdrop for this nature-loving couple. While planning for the shoot, they left it up to me to choose the location as long as it’s surrounded by trees and nature. I think I did an okay job right? 😉
Quynh & Huy are currently geographically separated by a few state lines and I can’t wait until they’re husband and wife so they can be reunited for good! Quynh and Huy, much love to you now and always–I already know the future holds many exciting things for you two. <3
When it comes to boudoir photography, I tend to embrace the more feminine, romantic, and delicate sensuality over outright sexy. I’m pretty much a prude, but there’s something about capturing the beauty/vulnerability/shyness/confidence/all of the above plus more that is so empowering to both the photographer and photographee. Don’t believe me? Try it out for yourself and see. 😉 Have a boudoir session done for your husband-to-be and see his jaw drops to the floor…or have one done just to celebrate your beautiful self. Disclaimer: I’m not responsible for how fabulous you will look and feel! 🙂
How breathtakingly beautiful is this inspired rustic ranch wedding photoshoot? I love every single detail from the DIY wedding gown, gorgeous flowers and tablescape, to the flowy calligraphy and majestic white horse! A romantic ranch wedding can simply do no wrong in my book.
I would like to extend my heartfelt gratitude to the sweetest and kindest friends for lending your enormous talents to this photoshoot. Kisses to all–you are so loved by me.
