Melissa & Nicholas are MARRIED! Celebrating these newlyweds today on the blog... And it's one you cannot miss! You're going to LOVE this wedding!
The week before Nick and Melissa's wedding, Rachel and I walked the Corral de Tierra County Club venue. Our jaw dropped. The ceremony site had this unending view of Salinas Valley's rolling hills,  as chairs would face the 10th tee. We were asked if we would like to tour the entire country club,…

All the way from Singapore, they wanted to capture their engaged love while in California. Grinning ear to ear the entire time, you could feel their overflowing joy. We quickly found, love is a universal language. Even though they didn't speak much English, with simple gestures and expressions, we were able to guide them through an entire afternoon which ended amazingly and with a BIG surprise!
I remember receiving an email from Edwin wanting to do an engagement session of him and his new gorgeous fiance, Cecilia. He was very excited and wanted to meet in person as soon as possible! He seemed to want to share very little though email, which I just wrote off as being a "guy" thing. If you…

We just love when friends are engaged! Our semi OCD kicks in and get to play make-believe wedding planners. We’ve had the honor of knowing these two from the very beginning of their relationship (or at least as early as they wanted everyone to know). Read more about it here! Congratulations you guys! Less than two months until your big day!
We've had the honor of knowing these two from the very beginning of their relationship (or at least as early as they wanted everyone to know). They dated for a few months before releasing the first official Instagram picture of the two of them, which of course made everyone giddy with excitement.…

We’ve been told it’s a Southern thing, but how we WISH it would move it’s way west! Bridal sessions. An afternoon with stunning bride-to-be, a gorgeous floral bouquet, and hair and makeup perfect in every way.

There are those couples that light up a room the second they walk in. Not the loud ones that demand attention, but the ones where their love engulfs all the room’s oxygen. Melissa with her contagious smile, Nick with his compassionate heart, you know with every ounce of your being that they were meant to be together.

She peeked through the stairway pillars as all her girls filled the room. Her elegance and grace seemed to carry her as she walked. It was her wedding day and she was totally calm and collected. Jackie was about to marry the man of her dreams. <3
She peeked through the stairway pillars as all her girls filled the room. Her elegance and grace seemed to carry her as she walked. It was her wedding day and she was totally calm and collected. Jackie was about to marry the man of her dreams, her man in black, her federal agent. Yes, we watch too…

There are those moments in life, when for that brief instant, time stands still. You gaze deeply into the eyes of your love, and every bit of your being feels excited. Tingles run up and down your spine. You feel safe, yet inspired, passionate, yet adventurous. You are one. Today's blog you won't want to miss!

This morning we are joining forces with some truly inspiring industry leaders all over the nation to launch and announce our very first initiative. #RisingTideSociety More exciting yet, Rachel and I have been chosen to lead the first West Coast gathering in Monterey, CA!
It's 4:30am. This is the time my alarm sounds every day. Why? Because early morning hours before the hustle of the day begins, before our little has awakened, is when I'm most creative. How often often as entrepreneurs do we feel lonely? A lot. Let's be real. It's a BIG world out there and when…

Leaving the freezing cold temperatures of Pennsylvania, Greg dreamed of the sunny beaches of California, where he would ask Jess to become his wife. You have to see how this surprise proposal unfolded!
A few months ago I received the sweetest email from Greg. He had plans to fly out to California with this girlfriend Jess, and couldn't think of a better place to ask her to become his wife. Leaving the freezing cold temperatures of Pennsylvania, he dreamed of the sunny beaches of California. After…

Not often do we get to do maternity sessions. However, when we do, we LOVE them! <3
Not often do we get to do maternity session. However, when we do, we LOVE them! It was a 90 degree day in Carmel Valley, and if you're familiar with the weather along the California coast, this is H-O-T! We couldn't think of a better way to help keep this mama-to-be cool, that a day at the river.…

We found them nestled in a corner cove, totally secluded. His plan was to reenact their first date. The same beach, bonfire, and a game of scrabble. Only this time when she opened the scrabble board, there was already a message for her waiting. Brilliant idea! Here’s what happened next…
Surprise proposals are one of our FAVORITE moments to capture, and when you add in that these are two of our absolute besties, BEST, DAY, EVER! They can also be the most difficult since you’re not strangers. They know what you look like, so it’s a bit more difficult to camouflage with the crowd,…
