private estate engagement | paso robles | jessie + andrew

I cannot say enough sweet things about Jessie & Andrew!  These two are so in love and it makes me giddy to look back at their engagement session.  The rain the last few months has been so good for the hills, everything was soon green!  We had such a blast adventuring around a 1,500 acre ranch that has been in Jessie's family for over 6 generations!!  There was so much beauty throughout the property, we could have spent all day out there.  I am so excited for their wedding this November at Four Sister's Winery! :)

irish hills engagement | san luis obispo | kayleigh + cory

These two individuals are very near and dear to my heart, my younger brother, Cory, and his fiance, Kayleigh.  I can remember back to the time these two started dating.  Cory had come to me and wanted to tell me all about 'this amazing girl' he had met.  That was almost 5 years ago!  These two have been through so much together, nothing could separate them.  When I found out that my brother had proposed to Kayleigh, I knew he had found 'the one'.  I can't think of a more sweet and genuine person to share life with my brother.  We had the perfect afternoon in San Luis Obispo at the Johnson Ranch Trail and finished at the beach in Montana de Oro.  The light was beyond dreamy, so I'll just let the photos do the rest.  I love you Cory and Kayleigh and can't wait to officially welcome you to the family!

regale winery workshop | los gatos | the bloom workshop

I am so thrilled with all of the positive feedback I have been receiving about my new website, brand, and even blog! You are all so sweet and that's why I love my job! :)  Be sure to subscribe to my newsletter, located on the right side of my blog.  (There may be a giveaway in the near future!)

A few weeks ago I was fortunate enough to head to the Santa Cruz Mountains to attend The Bloom Workshop.  I knew I wanted to create a blog when I rebranded my website, but I didn't know where to start.  Michaela, from Michaela Noelle Designs, and Ashley, from Ashley Slater Photography, were just what I needed to get the creative juices flowing.  We covered everything from blogging to social media.  To finish off the day, the two ladies had a styled shoot planned for us and walked us through some photography tips.  Here are some shots from the day :)

templeton prom | chloe + clay

I cannot believe how quickly time has flown.  My youngest brother and his sweet girlfriend just attended their senior prom at Templeton High School.  I cannot believe he is getting ready to graduate high school and start the next chapter of his life at Cal Poly.  I had the pleasure of shooting some photos of these two before they headed off to dance the night away :)
