Beauty & The Beach did a fantastic job creating this soft and graceful look for our bride!


After Lauren’s parents shared their sweet moments with their daughter, she headed down the stairwell to see her bridesmaids. This purity of this image stems from such a genuine place – as Lauren’s bridesmaids stared at their beloved bride before she was to be wed.

Letting loose and having a ball is basically second nature when it comes to the Grooms side of a wedding – and Mike & his men were no different. We set up this boisterous group shot as sort of a last “hurrah” between Mike & and his groomsmen.


First Look


Lauren & Mike shared a beautifully emotional moment as they lay eyes on each other for the last time before tying the knot.

Wedding Party

Ashley of Agape Planning did such a great job keeping us on track – we were able to have ample time with our wedding party to snag some gorgeous natural light portraits and group shots on the Richard Nixon Library property.

Utilizing the gorgeous light peaking in through the trees at the Richard Nixon Library we grabbed one last set of portraits of our Bride & Groom prior to the ceremony. We like to take advantage of all the possible time we can to get portraits like these not only to capture the light in the scene but to encapsulate a moment in time.


Wedding Ceremony


Flower Allie did a fabulous job creating a analogous color scheme between the Bridesmaid’s outfits and the florals for the ceremony & reception. The pops of pink amongst the white was the perfect accent to the lush green ceremony space as well as the golden ballroom.

Wedding Couples Session


Using her veil to surround us we created this image, bringing the viewer into this deeply intimate moment between Lauren & Mike.

Wedding Reception

As a homage to Mike’s job as a firefighter, Lauren chose to create a small figurine to pay tribute to him – such a small detail with so much significance.

With The American Events Network live band creating the soundtrack for the night, the party was alive and kicking!

The couple rode away into the night in this vintage automobile creating the perfect scene for our last shot of the night. This image is truly done justice in black & white, capturing that old school Hollywood aesthetic. We wish you two nothing but happiness on this next journey of life!
