Something happened at this wedding this wedding that I’ll never forget. And I still smile when I think about it.

During the garter toss, one of Steve’s groomsmen catches the garter and celebrates. So far, it’s pretty normal. Everyone’s celebrating, and the winner of the garter toss is determined. Suddenly another one of Steve’s groomsmen goes up to the catcher to give him a celebratory high-five but in the process steals the garter, runs away and stirs his own celebration. It was so awesome!

And another highlight was a few people decided to hoist the father of the groom who was probably having a better time than anyone there, and throw him up in the air a few times. It was so epic!

This was also my first butterfly release wedding! I realized that they don’t all fly out at once like doves do. I realized some of them really like being in the box.

Such a beautiful wedding, an awesome couple! Congrats Vy and Steve!

Maybe you’ll remembrer Blake from January when he was only a small bundle of joy. Now he’s 6 months old, big, and he crawls. Crawl might be an understatement, because he’s a speed racer. I had a hard time following him because he moved so fast. I got some good cardio in during this session.

I love  that Lorraine (Blakes mom) had so many cute outfits set aside for him and props. I love your energy Lorraine! It’s amazing how much of it you have considering you’ have to chase the speed demon around all day. You’re super awesome!

I have a funny story.

Well..before I begin I told Richard I’d stop giving him a hard time about this, but…nah. I’m still going to keep talking about it. icon smile Meet Kellie and Richard. Engagement Session at Venice Beach.

Richard used to be my biggest childhood bully! He used to ridicule me all the time.  But of course I forgive him, but only after a couple of jabs back at him now that he’s not that much bigger than me.

Here’s your engagement photos Richard! Enjoy! Don’t worry I didn’t mess them on purpose as a form of revenge…although I did think about it…just kidding…just kidding again.

This lovely and super fun couple are on their honeymoon in the west coast. But they’re not just here for a portrait session with me! They found me all the way from Paris! Since it’s their first time in southern California we decided to shoot in Santa Monica Pier and Hollywood which are dramatically different but two very iconic places in southern California. I had a blast with them because 1) they had an awesome French accent and 2) they laugh at everything. I told them I don’t even care about learning their language, I just want to learn their accent.  It was such a great experience! Congratulations you two!
