So many little details go into a wedding day that make it beautiful, special, fun and memorable. I believe the most important detail is the love that exists between you and your someone! 💕

I love reliving this elopement. I also love that Renee & Rob are expecting a sweet baby this December. I offered to let them use my name for their new baby, but we'll see if they agree 😉😏 #onlykidding#alittle photography: @michaela.m.photography
It's usually the real, documentary style photos I love the most. While the posed and smiley photos are what we might print and hang on our walls, it's the "what the world looked like around us" during "our time" - the time we met and fell in love, the time we took our engagement sessions - what did that look like? For Chelsea and Ryan, it was a cul-de-sac cliffed beach, on a breezy day at low tide, while others buzzed around them, their focus on one another completely undisturbed by the noise. 🌿
Trending now on the blog: Ceremony Altars. From over-the-top floral arches to rustic branch creations, we are loving how couple’s are showcasing their style at the altar!

When I saw you first, it took every ounce of me not to kiss you; when I first heard your laugh, it took every ounce of me not to marry you; and when I met your soul, it took every ounce of me.

Here is another look at the menus and place cards I created. Still completely and utterly in love with the styling of this shoot! 😍Watercolor and calligraphy are a seriously my weakness. Still feeling very lucky to be part of this shoot for @arizonaweddings ♥️🌿⠀

If you're a couple looking to get a video done by me, be warned that I have a new tendency of holding you hostage to also take pics. I'm trying my hand out on new things, and I will not hesitate to make you a victim.. glad to know there are some that can smile through the pain 🙂
@glitterybride says: "What’s more fun than getting all dressed up in your gown just to take pictures? Getting all dressed up with your BFFs – that’s what!" And we couldn't agree more! Don't miss this fabulously fun BFF bridal portrait session, featured on @glitterybride, photographed by @elizabethburgiphotography, and #poweredbytbl .
Sure is a happy Monday when you've got pretties like this to look at 😍 Just got the photos from our styled shoot with @samanthapatri Photography and we are in love!! We are so excited to have her as a part of our vendor family. ✨
Let's get real for a second and remind our selves how important self care is!! If you are not in a good place you can't help anyone. You need to put your self first sometimes!! So take 20 minutes today to just truly relax, no phones, no TV just free your mind. Your future self will thank you!!

Yesterday Courtney and Brian got married at the historic @adamsonhousewedding in Malibu. They celebrated with live music, good food and breathtaking views. Thank you to all the vendors that made this wedding so fun! (Courtney's mom was also a rockstar and I want to hire her 😂!)

Thoght of the day for those of us that need a little extra motivation Monday mornings! 🤔🤣

Lost Dutchman State Park has been on my "photographer bucket list" for awhile now. Even though I had an "issue" with a jumping cactus 😂🌵 (yes, they are real people!!), it was so fun seeing this sweet couple again!
