Newland Barn, Huntington beach wedding

Mckenne and Jake got married in the most beautiful winter wedding at the Newland Barn in Huntington Beach. They didn’t want to do a first look so Mckenne did a dad first look at pacific city and it was the most special moment. The way her and her dad cried when they saw each other melted everyones heart. We took bridesmaid photos here to before we headed over to their wedding venue. All their friends and family filled into the place to witness these two become one. The best wedding day reaction came when Jake saw his bride walk down the isle. I’ve never seen a more sweet first look reaction from a groom. He cried all the way until she met him up at the front.

Winter Engagement shoot in Joshua Tree National Park

Dana and Bobby chose Joshua Tree National Park for the engagement shoot location. We drove out there last week and expected the temperatures to be relatively cold but were surprised to find it to be freezing! It was windy and had previously rained the few days before. We drove in and headed to Quail springs to start shooting. I always love how shoots turn out in Joshua Tree so this day was no different. The clouds brought the perfect lighting and their outfits were on point. I had them cuddle up to stay warm as the wind ripped through the desert. I love windy days because it always makes for drama in photos! Dana and bobby were such troopers and trusted me that the freezing temperatures would all be worth it for the photos.
