Fernanda and James

Fernanda and James

were married at their home known as Alpine Castle, near San Diego in Alpine, CA. 

Their beautiful ceremony took place outside on the deck which was filled with their close friends and family members and vintage floral arrangements. The wooden arch stood in the corner of the deck and boasted incredible views of the mountains behind it. The bride looked stunning and classy in both her ceremony and reception wedding dresses while the groom wore a fashionable tuxedo. They did not have a bridal party which meant more time for couple photos (heh). The elegant reception felt royal, and took place inside the castle. It featured live music, memorable toasts, and a gorgeous simple ribbon textured buttercream cake. While we were on our way to take romantic photos I ask Fernanda and James, "So did you rent this castle for the wedding?" To which they humbly responded.. "It's our place." WOAH! They really are royalty! But if you are interested in getting married at Alpine Castle near San Diego, or just spending a weekend as QUEEN (and/or king), you can Airbnb the home and these two will generously allow weddings (and other various events) to take place there.  Enjoy!

Boudoir Session

I had the opportunity to meet with the House of Flynn Tribe (CA) girls for a stylized boudoir meetup session yesterday. This is something that is completely out of the box and new to me! I went to watch how the professionals/other photographers direct and position women in their most vulnerable state and learned so much! First of all- It wasn't awkward? I don't know why I expected it to be- maybe because you have ladies walking around in lingerie- I mean- I couldn't do it (or could I??). But it felt like a regular shoot- posing, directing, and snapping away; just like any normal day. :) Secondly, where I tend to shoot bright, boudoir is extremely intimate- so I had a lot of fun playing with angles and capturing Stephanie here with softer and sometimes darker and more dramatic lighting than my usual style. Enjoy!
