The first time I met Mara + David was on their wedding day! They came all the way from New York City for their wedding day! Since Mara is a Southern California native they decided to hold the wedding in Escondido at Mara's parents' beautiful nursery. What a lovely venue! The nursery (Oasis Water Efficient Gardens) was full of succulents and orange trees, Justin and I had so much fun working with the available surroundings!

Mara + David were such a fun unique couple, every detail about their day was so well thought out and matched Mara + David so well!

I had to start this entry off with my favorite shot of the day! It just felt appropriate!:)

I could here the drums throughout the entire nursery and it added such a wonderful energy to the wedding day!

I shot this engagement session of Ben and Jeannie a few months ago in Laguna Beach. I loved the simplicity of it, plus Ben + Jeannie were one of the sweetest and laid back couples I've ever worked with! My favorite details from this shoot were their personalized t-shirts, I thought it was an adorable idea!

Hello! I'm a photog in Denver who loves your work! I recently purchased some RadLab actions and was wondering if you could share your basic recipe for outdoor/color images? Any favorite go to actions you just can't live without? Thanks for your time!
