Sarah + Neal | Santa Ana, CA

Back in April, Sarah and Neal got married at a courthouse in Santa Ana, CA and celebrated their nuptials in urban boho-chic style in an intimate setting with close family and friends afterwards at the Memphis. I adore capturing couples who are hot in love, and these two lovebirds definitely fit that description. Arriving in a limo, Sarah and Neal have incredible style as you’ll see with the cutest wedding dress ever, his bow-tie, the bouquet made by her sister-in-law, and the bohemian wreath made by her. I will let their photos do the rest of the talking!

Felicia + John // Fullerton, CA Wedding

Last March I had the awesome opportunity of coming alongside Crystal of Crystal Jean Photography to shoot this beautiful wedding of a good friend of hers. Crystal is such a talented photographer with finesse and quite an eye for detail.

Felicia & John’s special day was a sunny one, tucked in the hills of Fullerton. My favorite part of the day was capturing sweet moments of the couple at the very end of the day in where else, but Crystal’s backyard. :)

Breann + Curtis | Monteleone Meadows Ranch Wedding

I always love me a good story when I come across one. Breann & Curtis’ story has got to be one of my favorites. After growing up together as childhood best friends and knowing each other for an eternity, these two lovebirds got engaged literally 6 weeks before their wedding which went off without a hitch. I love that they have sacrificially started their marriage adventure living overseas in Cambodia doing missions work for a year! Talk about commitment. Set in the pictureque French Valley in Murrieta, CA at Monteleone Meadows, their day was filled with beauty, grace, love and joy. I told Bre the week after that the day felt like such a beautiful dream, except it was way better because a dreamy reality is always better. Thank you so much Christina for supporting me with your love and beautiful eye and being the best!!!

English Tea Inspired Bridal Shower

My sister-in-law is getting married ! I had to share a few of my favorite details from her English Tea inspired bridal shower, put on by two of my mother-in-law’s best and dearest friends, Donna and Engloan. The porcelain gold rimmed china tea cups were keepsake heirloom items generations old from Grandma Jinny. And the party favors were DIY vintage tea cup candles thoughtfully hand-poured by Caitlin’s maid-of-honor, Alex. Macaroons: Lette // Buntings: Treasured Memories



The Flush Mount Wedding Album

Just finally got my sample album for this year in the mail recently!  For all of you who have been wondering what they look like, I thought I’d do a little catwalk here of the type of albums I use. These state-of-the-art robust leather albums feel as soft as baby skin and have the smell of sheer bliss. All my studio albums are hand cut and bound state-of-the-art flush mount albums with pages printed on premium Kodak Endura paper using Noritsu and Durst professional large format printers. Each is backed with a 100% lifetime guarantee.

Flush mount albums differ from regular photo books in that they are hand mounted on thick inner board with real silver halide photo paper, thus giving the book many desirable characteristics. Though the process is expensive and labor intensive these books are meant to give my clients a crafted, quality feel with sturdy pages that can not bend. I love that the .8mm thick pages lay flat with an almost nonapparent gutter that seriously can’t be rivaled anywhere else. Each album price includes photo the spreads, printing, binding, top grain leather, UV protective coating and a black presentation box.

Have fun giving your eyes a feast and feel free to get in touch with me to order an album for your past or future wedding! All album layouts are custom designed by Maritha. :-)
