I Do Redo Vow Renewal Event

I Do Redo Vow Renewal Event

Weddings are supposed to be the one of the most exciting, magical, and happiest days of our lives. However, for many couples, this isn’t the case. I’ve heard dozens of stories of weather-cancelations, ugly photos, vendor mess-ups, low budgets, or general mishaps that make their wedding day not turn out as planned.

Up in the Bavarian Alps, there’s a little 50s-style cable car that takes you to the top of a mountain, overlooking valleys and the rest of the German Alps (oh, and a casual castle down below).

Industrial Chic San Diego Winter Wedding

Industrial Chic San Diego Winter Wedding

Nicole + Andre are probably the sweetest couple I’ve ever met. Their wedding was absolutely beautiful, and they made it so unique by adding little touches that represent themselves (Nicole’s 3rd grade class made a book on marriage advice for her + Andre’s military pin!). Their venue was a DREAM; the decor was a perfect balance of industrial trendy mixed with chic and lovely.

Romantic and Intimate Sunflower Field Couples Session

Romantic and Intimate Sunflower Field Couples Session

One of my favorite parts about couples and engagement sessions are the long car rides with my couples. I know that might sound super weird, and maybe a little uncomfortable, but honestly, it’s the best!

Energetic and Adventurous Salt Flats Engagement

Energetic and Adventurous Salt Flats Engagement

We only got lost for a hot minute before returning to our *humble* (to say the least) motel. That was another adventure for the books; but honestly, we couldn’t help but belly laugh so hard we almost started crying.

Playful and Fun Cuyamaca Couples Session

We ended the session by slow dancing under a bright pink sunset in the middle of the street to “La Vie En Rose,” Gabe’s wedding first dance song. I can’t wait for these two to get engaged and married in the future!!!

Kaiya Miller Portfolio Shots for Shamon Freitas Agency

This shoot had it all: laying on the gum-covered sidewalks of downtown, seeing a homeless guy's butt, and almost losing a cell phone. Needless to say, it sure was an adventure!

Romantic December Horseshoe Bend Engagement

Romantic December Horseshoe Bend Engagement

This Monday I ditched studying for staying up for almost 32 hours straight so I could accompany some incredible photog friends to an adventure. Was it a good idea? Heck no. Was it worth every second? Abso-freaking-lutely.

Glamis Sand Dunes Couples Shoot

Glamis Sand Dunes Couples Shoot

After leaving San Diego at 7am, Aaron, Tessera, and I spent the next two hours fangirling about the Marvel universe and talking about how you really can’t compare Christmas to the 4th of July (apparently we have a lot of opinions on those topics).

Sunrise Beach Maternity Shoot

Sunrise Beach Maternity Shoot

I’m a huuuuggeee night owl, but I’m always down to wake up at 5:30am to do a sunrise shoot if it means the lighting is this good, the beach is empty, and the mamas are KILLIN IT 😍
