Back in May, Scott reached out to me last minute to see if I could photograph his proposal to Lauren. Within a few days, I was out in the mountains, hiding in the bushes, waiting for Scott to propose. The moment was magical, she said yes, and they started to plan their wedding.

After a 6 month engagement, Lauren and Scott had the most beautiful, modern-chic wedding I have ever seen. They turned an already beautiful golf course into a stunning wedding venue. With the help of their incredible vendors, Lauren and Scott’s dream wedding came true.

The week before their wedding, we were all nervous that it was going to rain on their wedding day (rain, in Southern California? Weird, right?). But instead of rain there was just chilly weather, a beautiful blue sky, and high winds. Both Lauren and Scott are easy-going people, so when Lauren’s veil almost blew off during their ceremony, they couldn’t stop laughing—I’ve never seen two people so giddy and in love! Their closest friends and family surrounded them as they said I do!

The day couldn’t have been more perfect. Just as they were doing their grand exit to their vintage car, it started pouring rain. It was a moment straight out of a movie—serendipitous.
