Ashley + Alex, Santa Monica Wedding

I'm so excited to share a few of my images from my first shoot with onelove photography based out of San Francisco. Alex and Ashley married at Fairmont Miramar Hotel just across from the ocean in Santa Monica. In this wedding, I got to hang with the groom, his family, and best guys-which reminded me of my early wedding photography days in Boston long, long ago. Everything about this wedding was exquisite, as you will see in the details, and the day could not have been more perfect. Congratulations to Ashley and Alex.

Sruthi and Wilson's Wedding, Jackson Country Club, Madison

We were so privileged to be a part of Sruthi and Wilson's wedding in Jackson, MS. It was a perfect day which included a flock of deer that graced us in the backyard of Sruthi's parent's home in Madison. The lady guests wore their traditional brightly colored sarees, which was a visual feast in itself. While Sruthi looked so stunning in her white wedding dress during the Christian ceremony, she also changed into her saree for the reception, where she and guests literally danced the night away.

California Dreaming

For YEARS, JC and I have dreamt of operating our photography business both in my home state of Mississippi as well as The City of Angels, Los Angeles. A moderate climate, an abundance of inspiration, flowers that grow on walls, and the beautiful California light drove us to love the West Coast as our second home.  Thanks to a dear friend, we were able to park our vintage Avion (in his driveway) and get busy working on the new website and planning for the year ahead. What does it mean for our current clients in MS? We are keeping our home and office and will continue to work in Mississippi.  We intend to offer the same great service that we have for the past 10 years, no matter where we are. As I scanned through literally thousands and thousands of images in preparation for this new site, my heart grew larger and fonder of my roots as I was reminded of all the beautiful souls along the way that have believed in us, encouraged us, (hired us), and loved us. We wouldn't be where we are today without the support of you all. I am deeply grateful. We will be traveling back and forth with cups running over. What does it mean for our new relationships in the greater Los Angeles area? Only that we are ready to collaborate and are "hungry" to partner with you to see your visual needs realized.
