Mission Inn Engagement Session

Beautiful place to create beautiful art.

Bridesmaids Crew

An awesome bunch of women.

Unplugged awesomeness

If there’s one thing I really love, its when clients do an unplugged wedding. Instead of everyone on their phone at a wedding being ridiculous, an unplugged wedding encourages everyone to pretend its 2005 and actually be in the moment, enjoying their friend’s wedding, smiling and feeling blessed. Thomas & Priscilla did an unplugged wedding, had the officiant announce it right before it started, & beautifully, all their guests listened! No grandmother with her ipad standing in the middle of the aisle, no snapchat addict with her mouth open taking photos- just amazing guests, all looking at Thomas and Priscilla like they should be doing. Ahhh, so good! “I love it when a plan comes together!” – GP


Wedgewood Weddings, San Clemente

Wedgewood in San Clemente is one of my favorite venues- all inclusive, staff is top notch & its always a fun production. For the braver brides, the beach is a 4 min drive, so we all hopped in my car & got some amazing shots for 30 minutes. What a great day.

Every minute of it.” – Jack Kerouac.

I love make up shots

Always a favorite of mine.

Walt Disney Concert Hall

I’m a big fan of this place. I always get amazing shots there. Clients wanted a lot of couple shots, so we decided to do a 1st look about 3 hours before the ceremony at St. Vincent’s and ran around Walt Disney Concert Hall. And since we did bridal party shots (9 people on each side) there & family shots at the church, we had over an hour for couple shots.

David & Jasmine Disney Engagement Shoot


Shot a Marine’s wedding at the Immaculata at UCSD a few weeks back. I loved how that church looked. Looked even better with Swordsmen!
