My favorite images from Joy and Ryan’s destination wedding in Kauai, Hawaii.
The photo/video crew!
See more images on the self documentary video of Joy & Ryan’s wedding in Kauai, Hawaii.
Hawaii was the most ideal location for Joy and Ryan for these simple advantages:
They were able to bring their closest family and friends and spend quality time with them in a gorgeous environment. The natural beauty of Hawaii and its tropical setting was a perfect getaway for everyone attending. Before and after the actual wedding day, guests can enjoy the warm climate of Hawaii and relax on the pristine beaches, or opt to go on a multitude of excursions available on the island. There is definitely something for everyone in Kauai to enjoy! The cost of a destination wedding in Kauai is also very reasonable while maximizing memorable times with guests. Joy and Ryan also had the most amazing pictures of their island wedding and photo shoots around different locations in Kauai.
Karen and Jensen’s beautiful wedding at San Antonia Church in Anaheim Hills, CA and reception held at the Balboa Bay Club in Newport Harbor, CA.
The Balboa Bay Club in Newport Beach is such a perfect wedding venue. There’s great weather year round and you don’t have to go far to get beautiful pictures. The interior boasts elegant architecture and decor, but the outside offers a wide view of Newport Beach and Newport Harbor.
This bridal party was one of the rowdiest groups I’ve ever seen! Their energy started the party way before we even got to the Balboa Bay Club reception.

Marisa and Brandon’s wedding in Las Vegas was truly fabulous!
Their destination wedding in Las Vegas, Nevada definitely had its advantages. We had a wide variety of options for memorable pictures – from the desert backdrop, to the mesmerizing city lights, to the festive streets of old town, and to exploring historic neon lights. What’s more important is that they were able to have they special day (weekend) exactly the way they wanted it. Their getaway to Las Vegas had that special sparkle, the swank, and style that only Vegas can offer.
Raluca and Chris’ post wedding pictures in Downtown Los Angeles was a blast! They wanted their bridal session at the Disney Concert Hall to be a styled but fun photo shoot. Here are just a few favorites of mine:
I had planned a styled photo shoot with Chris and Raluca for their post wedding pictures. It’s always fun to get dressed up and take more photos after the wedding. It’s sort of like a bridal portrait session, but it can be casual or formal. We’ve even used the wedding dress for these types of shoots, so I call those “Love the Dress” sessions. This time Raluca and Chris wanted to get dressed up in formal cocktail attire. They both looked stunning, especially Raluca in her deep red gown. Contact me when you’re ready for your post wedding session!
Christel and Kyle: naturally sexy
We hiked up the hill to the spot where Kyle proposed to Christel in Del Mar. It was a picturesque setting with rare Torrey Pines surrounding the hillside, clear blue skies above, and the pearly ocean just beneath us. I hadn’t even started taking pictures yet when Kyle wrapped his arms around Christel – they embraced. Kissed. Naturally. It was the beginning of an amazing photo about two young people in love.
One of my all time favorite engagement pictures at the beach, and I knew as soon as I took the shot
