Lake Atitlan

Lush Hotel -Lake Atitlan

Lake Atitlan Antigua Guatemala is such a magical place but nothing compares to Lake Atitlan’s magic. It’s true Mayan magic.

Lake Atitlan is just 2 hours outside of Antigua Guatemala and one of the most spiritually awakening […]

Hotel San Cristobal

Hotel San Cristobal

Mexico has always been my favorite. My favorite place to vacation, shoot weddings, relax, and of course, sip on spicy margs. Cabo is an easy destination for me as a wedding photographer. I can pop on over within 3 hours and enjoy everything Mexico has to offer. However, Cabo can be a little…crowded and expensive! […]

Smoky Hollows is a unique and moody event space in El Segundo. I can’t get over how perfectly everything turned out for Mikhaela & Tony!

Frank Vinyl and her husband John live up the street from me in North Park San Diego. It made sense when Frank asked if I wanted to do an intimate home session.

Palomar Mountain Fog

Palomar Mountain is one of my favorite places to shoot! I get weak in the knees for pine trees and clean air. During our session the fog rolled in and the rain came down. Luckily this couple was down to dip their toes in!
