Cotter | Family Photographer Bakersfield CA

So, I’ve had my pretty blue settee for a while now. I purposely bought it for my office & to tow out to sessions every now & then. First time for everything, because she finally made it out of the house! Also, bonus points for clients who come to the help to unload it ♥ Obviously I’ve lucked out in the awesome client department!

& I give you…. the absolutely adorable Cotter Family!

Tahnee & William | Engagement Photographer Bakersfield CA

Oh my, I’m positive that this is going to be a photo explosion! David and I spent an hour with Tahnee & William during their engagement session and they’re way too good in front of the camera ;)

And to be perfectly honest, the amount of laughter and love shared during that hour makes me wish it was April already! Can these two get married already?! I’m so excited!

Chen | Fall Family Photographer Bakersfield CA

Hold on you guys, before I continue with this blog post I just have to take a moment to really just take a deep breath…. and breathe in all that fall goodness! I ♥ California, but I crave that real deep reds & oranges, crunchy leaves goodness! We just don’t get it here in Bakersfield. Well, not like up North or the East Coast anyway! So this fall family session makes all sorts of happy :)

Bradford | Wedding Photographer Bakersfield CA

Nick & Carrie’s beautiful (I mean really, my jaw dropped!) wedding took place in the backyard of a private family estate in Bakersfield, CA. Every single elegant detail was thought of. Champagne, navy, fall leaves, romantic light, white pumpkins and special love signs throughout decorated their evening. The best part is, is that it was completely a surprise for Carrie, made memorable by Nick’s mom. I could have spent hours photographing just the details!

Nick & Carrie, we wish you endless years of happiness together! Thank you for inviting us to experience your day!

These are our favorites from their wedding!

Beaman | Wedding Photography Riverlakes Ranch Bakersfield CA

Courtney & Dan were married at the Riverlakes Ranch here in Bakersfield CA. When I first met the two of them I knew that David and I were going to have one heck of an amazing time working with them! They’re fun, hilarious and so much in love with each other! Every meeting we had I was left laughing and excited about every detail they had planned for their day. Down to every last detail, the lucky sock, left shoe pennies, a very sentimental bouquet and heartfelt personal gifts for their loved ones.

Courtney & Dan, we’re so happy for you and wish you so SO many blessings for the many beautiful years ahead of you!

These are our favorites from their day!

Ruiz Family | Bakersfield Photographer

The seasons have finally changed around here! Thank goodness too because I was starting to get anxious and crabby about it. Fall is my favorite time of year! It also means the sun sets earlier and I’m not interrupting your dinner dates as much, woo!

Ruiz family, it’s always a joy having you!
