You might remember Dan and Patty from their bridal session a couple months ago. I am so glad that I got to do their Bridal session as I was not able to shoot their wedding. Instead my amazing husband, Brett, took on this wedding along with our friends Rico and Rachel at StudioCastillero. This entry is a great mix of the talent of all three of these great photographers Rachel and Rico, you are amazing and we are so grateful for your help. You are both so talented and we are honored to call you our friends!

Dan and Patty are a stunning couple with great humor and class. They just keep laughing and taking life as it comes – a GREAT way to live. I heard that the wedding was a blast and I know that Dan and Patty devoted all of their time and effort into this day. The dresses that Patty wore were gorgeous. The makeup and hair were remarkable.

Dan and Patty, thank you for being an awesome couple and having fun with us. You were a pleasure to photograph and we hope you enjoy the pictures!

Location: Wilson Creek Winery

Wedding Coordinator: Linda Chow of

Hair and makeup: Theresa Huang from TH Makeup & Hair Design

Of course, the amazing dress they designed together. I can’t get enough of this beauty!




These are the shoes Patty wore throughout the day – can you believe it???



This was an interesting twist – they got ready in the same room and kept each other laughing.







Yup, she’s a model on the side…












First Dance – they had an entire routine!

    Hey everyone, I just want to again reiterate that I did not take one single photo in this post. All of these amazing pictures are the works of Rachel and Rico from studiocastillero and my awesome husband Brett. They did amazing posing and shooting. I can’t thank them enough for what a fantastic job they did in capturing this special day.

Joie contacted me months ago for a family photo shoot. She herself is a hairstylist ( and mom and she loves photography as well. I was flattered when she emailed me for photos of her family! After juggling our schedules around we finally nailed down the date and location – Coronado here we come! This family is adorable not only in personality, but in their looks. I mean – look at them! Their son is a lively 2 year old that kept us all on our toes, but provided full entertainment for the entire shoot. :)

Chauvettes, you were a complete delight to spend two hours with. I love your family, loved how the pictures turned out and I hope we stay in touch!











Did I not say gorgeous??!!
