Okay you guys, this is something totally different than what I normally share on my blog. I am first and foremost a wedding photographer but there are times when stepping out of my comfort zone and away from weddings can really refuel my creative energy. So today I’m sharing some of my favorite images from part one of our #seeyouinthedesert project.

Back in January my amazing friend, Allison Wagner of Allison Wagner Designs, and I decided we needed a break from our normal lives and a way to let some creative magic happen with new people in a new location. Allison is in the fashion world and creative direction is her thing so we thought we would spend a few days in Palm Springs styling and photographing a handful of ladies in the desert. Our inspiration for this project was centered on the desert and more specifically Palm Springs. Cactus, palm trees, pale pinks and greens, retro houses, sun kissed skin and festival approved looks. We came upon some rad Los Angeles fashion bloggers who happily signed up to come play with us in the sun as well as some other local LA vendors for hair, makeup, florals and a few décor elements. After all was said and done we walked away with 2 days of shooting, 4 girls, over 20 looks and 10 locations. I don’t think Allison and I really knew what we were in for with the heat and so many looks but after months of planning and prepping everything went just as we wanted and our finished product was more than we imagined.

Stay tuned for part two coming later this summer!

Lastly, Allison and I are beginning to plan a PNW project that will have a similar feel but different aesthetic so any creatives/models looking to participate in a fashion project later this year in the Seattle area let us know — more details to follow.

I met Aja and Matt last year when they booked a session to celebrate and honor their first year of marriage. Well, it’s been another year and we are back with their second anniversary shots! This time we went with a more urban feel and hung around DTLA in the arts district.

If you follow me on Instagram you can probably tell I am a huge lover of DTLA and shoot in the city as often as I can. When you find pockets of beauty in a very urban environment there just isn’t anything better! And as a Los Angeles wedding photographer I am always on the look out for unique spots to shoot in the city for wedding days as well as engagement sessions. I loved this session because I got to use a new location that shows off the city’s skyline in the distance as well as the golden hour glow that I’m always chasing. It was also so fun seeing Matt + Aja again and catching up on everything that happened with them in the last year. Looking forward to year three!

For more information on booking an anniversary or engagement session please send me a message HERE! I am a wedding photographer primarily serving the Los Angeles and Seattle areas. So whether you’re in Southern California or you reside in the Pacific Northwest, I’d love to hear from you!
