Jordane x Jake // Greenhouse Garden Wedding

Lauritzen Gardens Wedding
los angeles, california wedding photographer

"With me being gone for 12 weeks for clinicals, I was beyond excited to not only spend a weekend with Jake, but actually marrying him was a dream. Knowing that the next time he saw me would be in my wedding dress made me feel like I felt the night before our first date. I had butterflies and knots in my stomach. I was pacing the room feeling like time was going by so slow.  Finally, I was lead to the greenhouse where he was waiting for me. The instant he turned around and showed me that smile, any nerves or apprehensions about the day just disappeared. All I have ever wanted in life is to be his, and from the moment he turned around, that’s all I felt…his. People keep asking me how I felt on this day and there’s really only one word to describe how I felt and how I continue to feel in our marriage. I feel loved, I feel cherished, I feel undeniably his." -Jordane

"I still don't feel like I deserve her, and I don't know what she did to deserve me, but together we've begun something wonderful, that I struggle to fully describe. I love her, and I hope to learn to love her more every day." -David

Together they make a great duo. These guys are easy going, fun loving and absolutely a good time. 

Starting with an early rise for hair and makeup and ending with a dance party, this day was so fun. 

Every detail was carefully placed. Nothing went unnoticed. The families coming together was nothing short of precious. 

Please join me in re-celebrating their first day as Mr. and Mrs. Bunner!

My initial meeting of these two was at their engagement session, which was held out in the rolling hills of Nebraska. From the beginning I knew these guys were madly in love, playful and just an absolute joy to be around. Their wedding was nothing short of a good time, full of love and laughter. Here is a huge shout out to the new Mr. & Mrs. Tom Blount!

I met Steve two years ago not too long after moving to the Philadelphia area.  We found each other on match.com and all of our early dates were Steve showing me all around and walking around Philly with me- showing me his favorite things.  I knew he was very sweet right from the start.  I've never liked city driving so I would always take the train in and he'd be waiting at the station to pick me up and at night when it was late he always insisted on driving me all the way back home (a little jaunt from where he lived since we lived on opposite sides of Philly at the time).  I always felt that Steve and I were so comfortable with each other from almost the very beginning, I never worried with him or wondered where our relationship was headed, he was so forthright and honest always...

3 Important & Easy Steps to Better Engagement Photos

Dear Lovely Bride-to-Be, Let's chat about engagement sessions. Yippee! One of the very first steps after hiring your wedding photographer is shooting the engagement session. This is an awesome time to bond and get comfortable in front of the camera.

Erica + Mitch // Winter Engagement

My heart. Erica is my neighbor out here in the country land of Nebraska. I met her when she was a teenager. Young marriage is something that is close to my heart. There is something very special about "growing up" together. Making mistakes and learning through them, together. Staying up late in the night because... college... together. My husband and I were engaged at the age of these two as well. Needless to say, we have something very special in common. I hope you enjoy these images as much as I did creating them with Erica and Mitch. -xo-

I'm so thrilled to share our story of how our second born, Cohen, arrived. Cohen Eli was due October 10th 2014. On Tuesday, October 7th, in the evening around 8:30pm- my water broke. I was just laying down on the couch and yep, pretty sure that was what it felt like to have your water break. "CLAY! I think my water just broke!" I yelled.
