CariAnn and Alex’s modern industrial wedding in Irvine, California was truly what dreams are made of. CariAnn knew exactly what her vision was while planning the big day – and every little boho touch throughout was perfect.

I am always such a sucker for a first look and am almost always guaranteed to cry during the reading of wedding vows. But combining the two?! I am a mess. CariAnn and Alex had their first look and private reading of their vows on the rooftop of their venue. The sky was perfectly blue, with views of Orange County and John Wayne Airport. Seriously just the best vibes. After the reading of the vows, CariAnn and Alex’s bridal party came up to the rooftop where we had such a blast celebrating the soon-to-be Mr. and Mrs.

Just when I didn’t think their wedding day could get any better, it did! After their beautiful ceremony, we were able to sneak away back to the rooftop for some incredible golden hour romantics. We wrapped up the night with shakin’ it on the dance floor and eating the best tacos I have ever had. Talk about a dream wedding!

CariAnn and Alex are one of the sweetest couples; their intentionality and kindness was evidant throughout their entire wedding day. Seeing a couple so in love and just ready to spend their lives together is what makes my job the best one ever.

What NOT To Wear to Your Engagement Session

As a wedding and elopement photographer, I love getting to connect with couples and learn their true style + hearts. When I book a couple for their engagements, I typically will send them a style guide with some inspo for some looks and tones if they are looking for some suggestions. But above all, I always include my #1 thing NOT to wear to an engagement session.
