Hi, I'm kelly


the wedding planning checklist

Everything you need to know from the minute you get engaged to after you say I do!



I met Lauren back in highschool and was so thrilled when she inquired about her wedding. As we caught up over coffee I couldn’t wait to meet Zach! She started telling me all about him, how they met, and how he popped the question. It was just so cute I had to share it with you all! So here we go… One day she came home and stumbled across some flowers and a note that told her to get ready and meet in the driveway. As she finished rushing to get ready ( I don’t know how she did it so quickly haha) she went outside and saw Zach’s friend dressed as a Chauffeur. He drove her to a gorgeous spot overlooking the ocean. As they parked another one of Zach’s friends picked her up and brought her down a pathway to were Zach was standing. He then got down on one knee. After the excitement she turned around and saw all her friends and family standing there to witness and celebrate! Ah soooo many heart eyes! Just based on this conversation I couldn’t wait till the next time I saw her and Zach for their engagement session.

For their session we couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day in Hermosa Beach. You see the two weeks before it was pouring rain…which is super uncommon for Socal. Luckily the weather gods were in our favor and the sun was out and shining. Lauren and Zach are SO sweet and SO in love. They had smiles on their faces and had me thanking my lucky stars that I get to serve couples who make my job the best one in the world.

Lauren and Zach thank you so much for choosing me to document your love story. I loved every minute with you two and I cannot wait for wedding! It is going to be here before we know it! I have so many favorites from your session and I am excited for you to see just a few of them here! <3
