Manhattan Beach Engagement


Seven years ago I met Lisa when I was a freshman at Pepperdine. Her best friend became my big in our sorority, so I got to spend lots of time with her as I got to know my big and the rest of my new friends. Little did I know that someday she would ask me to photograph her wedding (!!) time is weird and it makes me emotional. You know what else makes me emotional? Keep reading…


How Lisa and Cameron met is out of a freeeeaking movie. Story time: one day Cameron and Lisa were separately waiting to board a Southwest flight to LA. While in the terminal they made eye contact and sparks flew. Cameron boarded the plane before Lisa, but she ended up making the first move. When it was her turn to board the plane she picked the middle seat RIGHT NEXT TO CAM. Was it the only seat left? Nope. Not by a long shot. So they of course chatted the entire flight to LA, and exchanged contact info before deplaning. Lisa said she thought he’d take a couple days to text her, but he reached out right away. And the rest is history.

I’m lucky enough to be shooting Lisa and Cameron’s wedding this June, and I couldn’t be more excited. As my 2019 starts to book up, I’m so thankful that brides as down to earth and sweet as Lisa are choosing me to document one of the most important days of their lives. No matter if I’ve known you seven years or no time at all, it’s an honor to be chosen every time.
