These two souls.
The timing of the morning sun shining so brightly
as they exchanged their intimately written vows alongside rocky cliffs of Laguna Beach.
The dramatic clouds that rolled in shortly after.
These candid moments.
There are so many moments below, you know, those shots in between where the final shot was intended to be, but this naturalness just took over with its elegance and true representation of their natural, passionate, blissful love.
I look at these time capsules and I am filled with so much love.
So much love for, love.
So much love for, the couples that exist behind my lens.
So much love for, the connections that have brought me to these very souls.
So much love for, the vibrancy of life and the privilege of witnessing unconditional love and beauty.
My goodness, love is truly the most powerful gift we can experience in this lifetime. ⠀
My goodness Brooke and Sean,
you two truly looked amazing in your all white and the softness of the Laguna Beach skyline.
Thank you for the honor, thank you. ⠀⠀
She looked at me and said, "You get to this this for a living, you get to do this everyday?!?"
I giggled and said, "Yes, yes I do. It's quite magical, isn't it?!?"
We spent the next hour documenting this empowering woman as we moved throughout her beautiful home in San Diego.
Each time capsule, truly taking itself.
Each pose, done so with so much love, so much respect, so much beauty and so much laughter.
It's so empowering documenting an amazing woman living her life path,
living her true purpose and sharing her beauty.
As we stand in our own confidence, beauty and truth, we allow others to do the same! ⠀
The power of community truly inspires me each and every time I have the opportunity to work with other creatives!
And my goodness,
was this styled shoot a perfect culmination of working alongside so many talented souls
as we brought to life this Moroccan vision at the all too magical venue of the Darlington House!
During this shoot, I was honored to witness and document the deeply interconnected love of our two incredible models,
Mel and Kaleo, the lead singer of Pepper and together as Rebel and Muse.
This powerful duo, whom has been married for 15 years truly commitments themselves to bettering this world,
understanding of self and others all the while giggling and dancing to the beautiful melodies of life!
the incredible local vendors that collaborated,
I am forever grateful. Forever humbled.
What an amazing learning experience,
what a life enhancing process.
Thank you to all those who contributed!

When another badass photographer,
Yoga Oceanside goer,
beautifully delicate soul gives you permission to document her greatness.
Well, it looks a little something like this.
Marcy, Marcy Browe of Marcy Browe Photography...
You are radiant. You are dynamic. You are stunning.
Thank you so much for the beautiful exchange of getting to be behind your lens just a few weeks ago
and now blessing my lens with being behind its magic.
I truly enjoyed getting to witness and document you're gracefulness and joyful presence.
My goodness, you are truly so beautiful. ⠀
