I dreamed of doing this shoot for long time
I wanted Vintage, a touch of country, Rustic outdoor relaxed atmosphere, I wanted cowboy boots and soft colored flowers & lots of DIY …. now that wasn’t to much to ask for was it? lol
being in this photography community I see soooo many stylized shoot that i can only dream of doing myself and I wondered if I could pull it off – just thinking about it felt overwhelming i knew of so many vendors that might have loved to participate but I knew exactly who i wanted to collaboration with because it was VERY important to me that they also had a love for the sames things I do..
A HUGE THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO PARTICIPATED IN THIS SHOOT I COULDN’T HAVE DONE IT WITHOUT ALL OF YOU!
I hope you enjoy these photos as much as we all enjoyed putting this together..

As Brittany and I walked into the room to meet Amy- hair & make up were being finished and the girls were yelling out a window as they noticed the groom walking in.. The excitement was building up but the one thing that stood out to me was the LOVE and JOY you could feel all over this room.. there was not a thing that could ruin this day I have to say that Amys bridesmaids were the best.. the entire day they were so much fun.. full of smiles and positive words and joyous tears..
how is it possible that i got to document such a huge day for such amazing people with the deepest love for God and their family and friends.. No i mean this truly.. when i met Art and Amy
you could instantly tell these two were best friends.. and there wasnt anyone else in this world for either of them i left this wedding excited that i got to be part of this story thank you Brittanee Taylor for having me as your 2nd shooter!
Valerie and Andrew had such a beautiful Wedding & there was no doubt that these two were truly madly deeply in love with each other
they had such an awesome detailed D.I.Y wedding filled with mason jars (my fav), flowers and B signs all over the place to represent her new last last
-i’m not even going to lie I keeping wondering the entire time how long it took her to make all those paper flowers that were all over .. Awesome job Valerie!
& I wish you two many many happy years together.
keep scrolling for a very short glimpse of their day that I second shot for Sincerely, A. Photography
Oh Ojai.. Where do I start? this place was the perfect place for a wedding.. for a vacation or just a get away.. so when i got the Msg from Jenn that she needed a 2nd shooter for her upcoming wedding I was stoked not only because she is an amazing head shot photographer & she wanted ME to join HER! (you can view her headshot work here..& the location of this wedding was at the BEAUTIFUL OJAI VALLEY INN.
we went right to the Pent house suite and got started… & the day just got better I got to meet Joanna and she was a Doll! Joanna was calm and the room was quite, being a wedding photographer that is Rare.. usually wedding mornings can be a bit crazy but not this morning..
the backdrop of the ceremony couldn’t have been better – the sun was out, the sky was blue and the chairs were filled with guest anxiously awaiting for the couple to say I do.. & Joannas best fried sang a song that Vance wrote just before the bride came out the door…
First off A big congratulation to Julio & Carolina on their engagement!
Carolina & Julio were such a FUN couple to work with & they were my first couple to ever bring the baby along.. OK well not a baby baby but their dog who is their baby and if i have to say to myself he was pretty well behaved!
I’m not going to lie after chatting with Carolina over the planning process i was getting anxious to shoot this session
the location details sounded awesome and we all know I LOVE great locations! & to make it even better Carolina mentioned 2 more locations that I had been wanting to shoot at!
Carolina’s sister came along to the session and gave us a little history on all 3 locations we went too.. i seriously wish i could bring her along to every session i have! she is like a location, history genius
and I instantly got excited when i heard she is actually a vintage stylist! here is a link to her blog if your interested in checking her out click here

I recently had the opportunity to be a second shooter for – Shea Anne Portraits I was super excited to work with her again because we always have a good time working together & what could be more fun then assisting her in shooting this gorgeous wedding of hers!
we headed off to Malibu- The Malibu lake Mountain club to be exact to document one of the biggest day of Alicia & Hectors Lives – A day I’m sure Alicia long awaited -10 years actually..
Alicia was one of the most laid back brides I have met, then again I think all my brides have been pretty much laid back now that i think about it- walking into the venue I was taken away by the beautiful light beaming in – the soft colors of Grey and pink that Alicia choose… the details of the candy bar, how she incorporated pearls and rose to represent certain things of their lives. and more importantly that this day didn’t seem way over the top but it REPRESENTED THEIR LOVE – Have i ever mentioned Im in love with love? & Alicia & Hector were genuinely in love and it showed & i was super excited to be documenting this day for them.
some of you might recognize Alicia as she Plays the Role as Selena on the hit Lifetime series ” The Client List”
Thanks again Shea for giving me the opportunity of assisting you on this beautiful day
the weather was warm, our backdrop of the mountains and blue skies were perfect. rose petals filled the aisle and some of the most important people in their lives happily filled the seats & Hectors brother stood up officiated the ceremony!!
a line in a poem he wrote to her 10 years ago were also part of hectors Vows- ” your feet chose a path and the past was to be with me” & tears filled his eyes as he began to say I do…
Alicia Lagano from the Lifetimes TV show Client List MARRIED! –
A huge Thank you to Shea Anne Portraits for having me as her 2nd shooter at this gorgeous wedding
In the world of photography- you must always strive to keep learning – some like to read while others like myself like to go out and get hands on with things! it seems like one of the biggest things that comes up is posing ideas…
Posing is such a crucial aspect to photography and so I was super excited that I had the opportunity to be a guest at Sheri Angels posing workshop!
first off let me began by saying that the couple she choose was nothing short of AMAZING
I MEAN GOSH LOOK AT THEM– “GORGEOUS “
and Sheri is so full of information and ideas I just love picking her brain – Thank you Sheri for offering this workshop i left feeling inspired
(this workshop took place a few months back i forgot what date– i just got around to blogging it)
