Baby Jackson paid me a visit yesterday – and he might win the award for the best behaved newborn I have photographed in the last year. Over 2 hours it was 90% smiles and sleeping with just a bit of protest thrown in when we went for a change in outfits. And of course the BEST part… nobody got peed on!! He’s an absolutely beautiful little boy.
Beautiful venues put a huge smile on my face – and when Courtney and Jordan told me they would be getting married at Secluded Garden, I could not have been happier. On top of the wonderful venue, this intimate wedding was attended by such a great group of friends and family that I could not help by enjoy myself thoroughly for the entire event.

This beautiful wedding at Paradise Gardens in Oceanside was an absolute pleasure to be a part of. Aside from the weather being a little on the hot side when we arrived – I can’t imagine how the day could have gone much better. From the perfectly behaved dog, to the children’s parade, to the absolutely gorgeous grounds where we were able to take the wedding photos, this was definitely one of those days that made me LOVE my job. Looking back, I think my favorite part of the day was the first look. The funny thing about “first looks” is that they can sometimes feel a little “contrived” as the bride and groom get ready. But as you can see in the resulting images here – the experience of seeing your spouse for the first time on your wedding day is a special moment that is guaranteed to create some strong emotions.
