Big News // California & New York

So as the post title alludes to, there is a lot going on in my life right now. Besides this busy wedding season being incredible there is something else that I'm excited to share. The "big news" being that I am New York City!!!

I've lived in SoCal my whole life and had really hoped I'd experience city living at some point but really didn't expect that it would all happen as quickly or smoothly as it is...I feel so blessed and am so grateful for the opportunity. I'm not sure how long I'll stay, definitely a year and then we'll see after that. I can't wait to shoot in a different area of the country and experience all of the seasons (although I'm sure I'll be soo over winter once I'm in it for a couple months). I'm excited for the new surroundings, new people, and hopefully many new opportunities.

All that to say, I now have the great opportunity to shoot on the East Coast on a regular basis. Also to note, Europe and the Caribbean are a lot closer ;) I will be frequenting California often for jobs and would like to continue doing business in the golden state since family and friends are here. I'm excited to book some gorgeous East Coast weddings for this coming spring and summer and meet all the great people the area has to offer. My first wedding in the Big Apple is in a couple weeks...I couldn't be more excited!

And no one likes a post without an image so here's one from last year during a trip to Asheville, North Carolina in the fall....guh-or-geous. If NYC fall is even a tenth as lovely as fall in NC then I'll be in bliss.

Happy Friday!

ashley + josh // engaged

These two are a great duo, another pair of high school sweethearts, and another pair of good friends of mine. I know, I know, I have a lot of friends getting married right now. I'm just glad I get to have such a big part in the festivities...always honored to do so. Ashley and Josh are getting married next month at his family's ranch and it will be question about it. They're from up in Central California and are moving down South this month, right as I'm about to make a big move myself (more on that later). Enjoy the photos of these two lovebirds..
