First comes love,

Then comes marriage…

Then comes a BABY in a baby carriage! :)

This familiar jingle definitely rings true for Sarah and Jonathan! Last March, we had the privilege of photographing their intimate seaside wedding in Laguna Beach. Not long after, the couple delivered news that a baby was on its way! With maternity portraits in mind, this darling couple stepped behind our lens again to preserve this special time in their lives.

The shoot took place in Balboa Park, with its stately architecture and blooming gardens. Along with Sarah’s effortless bohemian flair, the park setting lent itself to maternity portraits that were relaxed and heartfelt. These images will no doubt be shared with the little one in years to come, but you can check them out now!

Amy and John’s Scripps Seaside Forum Wedding with I Do…Weddings

By, April 29, 2013

About seven months prior to their wedding, Amy and John contacted us for help with the key details of their big day. From the beginning, they wanted a beach wedding with an elegant feel. When they discovered the Scripps Seaside Forum, they knew it was a perfect fit!

We immediately began working closely with the couple, as well as and Amy’s mom, Nancy. Throughout the process, we provided planning assistance, vendor recommendations, design support, time and budget management, and layout development for this gorgeous wedding.


When the day finally arrived, John looked dapper in his bow-tie. Amy was breathtaking in her floral embellished wedding gown.


One of our favorite moments of Amy and John’s day was seeing them meet for their “First Look.” There’s always so much anticipation leading up to this happy moment, and we were honored to be a part of it.


John’s groomsmen had such a fun (and irreverent) sense of humor!  Each member of the wedding party added to the comfortable feel of the day!


A beautiful canopy, provided by Blush Botanicals, gave a romantic beach flow to the ceremony. The overhead market lighting added a cool, outdoorsy vibe.


Inside the Forum, we draped the back wall and added uplights, giving a soft romantic feel to the room. For an extra personal touch, guests were presented with mini picture frames, which served as their table place card holders. Guests were encouraged to take these frames home to help remember the special day.


Once the sun set, we turned on special spotlights that shot out toward the ocean. These lights made the coastline visible in the dark, and allowed for great photo opportunities.


Best wishes to Amy and John as they start their new life together!
