My favorite place in the world is Palm Springs & Joshua Tree (Iceland and South Africa tied for first place though).  So naturally, I jumped at the opportunity to go to the desert shootout. It was amazing to see so many amazing vendors come together to make a dream shoot come to life. I hope […]

Jennea & Andreas Attai’s Lake Port Wedding was a magical backyard wedding. Jennea decorated with Himalayan pink salt lamps, macromae, and beautiful simple greenery. She made many popsicles from scratch and made sure every guest felt special that day. These two were constantly holding each other’s hand throughout the day and always be each other’s side. […]
