We took some photos of these cuties back in June to celebrate their upcoming elopement, and now that they’re married I can finally share these gorgeous photos! They wanted to keep their city hall elopement simple and 100% focused on them + their family, so they opted to do this first look adventure session in Yosemite with us before. It was such a beautiful morning and the best way to kick off our busy June season. I’ll be sharing a few more favorites from this session in the coming weeks! Couples - we loooove our elopements, but we get know that sometimes it’s not necessarily the best/easiest option for everybody to elope in the mountains. If you like the idea of adventurous wedding portraits but are having a wedding closer to home, ask us about adventure wedding sessions!! They’re a great way to have an intimate first look before your wedding (sometimes even months before!) or to celebrate on your honeymoon, or even anniversary. We love them, and so do our couples! Your wedding should be what you want - stop believing there are “rules” you need to follow. As long as you end up married, the rest is just details, and those details are 100% up to you :)
There is nothing better than being dressed to the nines and barefoot on the beach🌊
Starting tomorrow I have weddings and shoots every day until August 28th. Wish my luck lol
I wanna go get lost in the woods today and forget about all my cares. Nature is totally my happy place, where’s yours?
Just hanging with the girls!
Nothing better than California sunrise road trips with my boyfriend & doggos. Head over to @savannah.avril
if you want to see some shots from our adventures! Next weekend -> San Fran! Also I look like I just rolled out of bed because I literally did 😂
We’ve been shooting a ton of maternity sessions lately, and let me tell you, it’s doesn’t upset us one bit! Love being able to capture this chapter for our clients and welcoming their little ones 😁💕👶🏼 sharing some of our favs on the blog of a recent maternity shoot with Meagen and her husband!

It's been a while since I've put one of me here on Instagram, so here's a bit of #fridayintroductions
for you! Nico snapped this one of me in Florence last year. It was my birthday that day and we almost missed out on going to Florence, because we woke up late to meet our tour bus! I found this shot as I was looking for photos from our honeymoon and wedding to finally get printed / framed for our house. (It's been over a year, I know, and as a photog you'd think I'd have this accomplished already, but 🤷♀️ ) According to my best girl friend's, my eyeliner skills are surprisingly fast. Which this photo is proof I guess, because I was frantically throwing everything on to get out the door to catch our tour. I had no idea what I looked like when we got on that bus. I've always waited till the last minute to get dressed and put on my make-up since I was a teenager. I would be finishing putting on my eye makeup as my Mom dropped my off at school. Which is probably when I learned to make that eyeliner go on real fast, between the bumps in the road and trying to see myself in the small visor mirror. The past couple years it's just worked out that I've made a trip around my birthday and this year I'll be in New York, so I'll keep the tradition going!
What surprises are awaiting us this coming weekend? Looking forward to capturing these moments...a photographer with 12 years of experience once asked what do I do about getting burned out from wedding? 'Burned out? I have the privilege to witness many of life's amazing moments...no burn out here!'
how many of you guys are single, in a relationship, engaged, or married??? trying to get to know my peeps ✨🤙🏻
Choosing thankfulness today. Some days I just reflect on all I’ve been given & the opportunities that have been placed before me. I don’t know if I’ll ever be able to comprehend that I get to do what I love as a job. So this is just a casual thank you to every person who’s trusted me with their life moments on camera. Y’all make my life richer 💛
Friday! Gotta get down on Friday!
“we don’t really know how to act in front of the camera” they said...
this is exactly like “oh, I didn’t learn anything for the exam”, but you receive the biggest grade.😁these two are 💣! .
thank you! 🖤 @findyourinnera @luciannemes
also, thank you Bianca for the huge help! 💛and damn ig. 😔 check the next stories for the full photo!
It’s Aloha Friday - let the weekend adventures begin!!
you can’t tell me the way they’re looking at each other doesn’t make you happy. (if you can you’re wrong) 😜
So truth be told, I really enjoy going to the dentist. I'm like the only person I know who feels that way. What's one thing you love that most people hate?
I'm pleased to annouce the launch of my new website (link in bio)! :-) After 2 years of crazy roller coaster (being not only wedding photographer, but working also on some other big projects), I'm finally back.
I have so much material I’d like to share. As many of you know me, I’m always trying something new, something different... At this photograph you can see the lightning I’ve captured with 1/1250 shutter speed. It was a great experiment. :-) Thanks Katja and Rok! What a wedding, what a day... :-)
Thanks to @flothemes
for such a great theme. Keep up the good work guys!
We met when she was 10 and now she’s getting married! @talia
I’m so proud of you and your beautiful heart! You can tell the world that The Lord is perfect in His timing and He’s really good at writing our love stories! I’m so excited I get to capture yours!!! 💕 xoxo

Fill your life with adventure, not things. Have stories to tell, not things to show.
Happy Friday, friends! This is my first and only weekend off in a while due to last minute cancellations, so my little family and I are being spontaneous and taking a (much needed) weekend getaway. We just decided on this this morning so while we don't have a clear destination, I'm excited to just spend time with my kids and husband away from everything! Travel and adventure is something that I feel is so important to instill in my kids, and I'm trying harder to work on. I want to show my kids the beautiful world we have been given that unfortunately many take for granted, so they can see how important it is to care of our planet. But also, traveling is just fun and offers such amazing life learning opportunities. So while we may not be flying off to Europe or the Caribbean, I feel like it'll be just as valuable to create memories with our kids :). Wishing you a weekend full of adventure (even if it's just taking a new way home!). xo, Ali
