Every once in a while we get a wedding that leaves us walking away grinning ear to ear and absolutely in bliss, as was the case with Diane and Brendan’s wedding. Everything about their wedding was what we LOVE to shoot. We didn’t get the chance to chat much with these two before the wedding so we didn’t really know what to expect but the moment we pulled up to their gated private estate, we knew we were in for a great wedding. Diane and her mother truly brought this event to life. They custom cut the table runners, rubber stamped confetti bags, handmade the pup’s bow ties and even hand-painted a toile pattern on Diane’s shoes to match their grandmother’s family china! Their backyard reception was perfection as were Diane and Brendan who beamed with joy as they celebrated with their closest friends and family.

I first met Anne-Marie at Jose Villa’s Workshop in Mexico. We have stayed in touch over the years, and when Anne-Marie contacted me to tell me she’s coming to California I was so excited! I’ve been seeing pictures of her precious little girl, Madeleine and I couldn’t wait to meet her and see Anne-Marie again! We met up at Crystal Cove and had the most amazing time together. Anne-Marie, I think next time we see each other, it has to be in Newfoundland, and if not somewhere in Canada for sure! Thank you for the opportunity to photograph you and your family. xo
