Los Angeles Wedding Photographer

Alex & Brittany : Los Angeles, CA

Hurray, I'm posting again! :) While I was in LA this week, Brittany let me stay at the apartment that she shares with a few of her friends. I was a little nervous at first because Brittany is a friend of a friend and I didn't even get to talk to her until my plane landed, but as soon as she greeted me with a warm hug, my nervousness fled. I had so much fun hanging out with these girls chatting about life and love and the ways that God is working in our lives. It was such a blessing to get to spend a few days with such a wonderful group of young ladies, and I know that God is going to use them in an amazing way.

It would have been a shame to fly to California and not be able to capture two people in love in the gorgeous SoCal light, so when Brittany found out I was looking for a couple to photograph she and Alex gladly volunteered. These two have such a sweet, simple love and they are dedicated to honoring God together in their relationship. They laugh together A LOT (see pictures below if you don't believe me) and I had a wonderful time exploring Burbank with them.

Brittany: I've said it before, and I'll say it again - you have such a beautiful, relaxed smile. You make my job so easy! :)

Aww, how sweet! I love the lines in this one.

I love that you can see the mountains in the background in the next few images.

And of course it wouldn't be a trip to California if I didn't get to see Kyleen! We spent this morning driving to potential ceremony and reception sites, and I couldn't be more excited about her wedding coming up in April! It's going to be simple, stress-free and GORGEOUS!

I promise my new site design is coming soon. I got to see the finished product last night, and it looks AMAZING! It just needs a few tweaks before I can share it with you, so stay tuned :)

Fashion Feature : Dolly Couture

Confession time: I love 50's fashion. LOVE it. There's just something about poofy, swirly skirts and sweetheart necklines that make my heart sing. I could spend hours wandering through rows of 50's dresses if given the chance. Unfortunately, the closest I come to that is browsing the online catalog for Posh Girl Vintage. But I digress. I love 50's fashion, so when I stumbled across the work of well loved designer Dolly Thicke, I was hooked. I had to see them for myself, so I emailed her, confessed my adoration, and asked if she'd mind letting me borrow a few of her gowns for a fashion shoot. She called me back that evening, and the rest, as they say, is history!

These dresses are stylish, cute and extremely well made. In addition to being sweet and an absolute pleasure to work with, Dolly is committed to delivering a high quality product. You won't find any thin, discolored or overly shiny fabrics here, and the dresses are finished beautifully. If you're looking for a fun, sassy, elegant dress for your wedding, you should check out her line of custom gowns. You won't be disappointed :)

Now, on to the photos! In the first few, Willie is sporting the Manhattan, one of Dolly's best selling gowns, and it's no wonder! It's such a simple, elegant design, and it can be dressed up or down in a number of ways.

Now, I could have packed up and gone home once the sun set, but where's the fun in that? It just so happens that I had a fog machine and some colored gels in my trunk, so I decided to play. Willie is a wonderful model and she did a great job with the photos above, but she seriously unleashed her inner diva for these photos, and I couldn't be more pleased. She's so awesome!
