Intimate Yacht Wedding | Hornblower Cruises | Newport Beach, CA Wedding Photographer | Lianna & Kevin

Working with these two and their families was a dream!

Lianna and Kevin are high school sweethearts. They met in the 9th grade when they were introduced through mutual friends during gym class and ever since then, they have come to know each other and grow in love! Then, in October 2014, Kevin planned the most beautiful proposal! While on vacation in Hawaii, he took Lianna hiking and proposed on the beautiful DiamondHead Trail in O’ahu! How incredibly sweet is that?!

Their intimate Newport Beach wedding day was SO full of happiness! The day began with the lovebirds and their families getting ready at the gorgeous Balboa Bay Resort. Lianna and Kevin shared a romantic first look right by the marina and we then traveled to Inspiration Point for a few ocean view photos.

Their nautical themed ceremony and reception was aboard the Hornblower yacht in Newport Beach. I loved every little detail incorporated into Lianna and Kevin’s day – from the custom made sail boat candle holders, seashells adorning the tables, beautiful floral pieces (by the very talented Merci Bouquet) and the AMAZINGLY delicious (and gorgeous!) cake (by Pacific Patisserie).

It was such an honor working with and getting to know these two and their families. Congratulations to Lianna and Kevin!

Glendale Lakes Golf Club Wedding Photos| Chicago, IL | Staci & Scott

Staci and Scott are MARRIED!

Staci and Scott met through a synchronized swimming group at Huntington University in Indiana. Soon after, they fell in love and Scott proposed to her by taking her to her favorite restaurant (Olive Garden!) for dinner and back to the decorated University auditorium to pop the question!

Their wedding day began with Staci getting ready at her beautiful family home. We then traveled to Faith Christian Reformed Church for their ceremony, followed by photos and a gorgeous rustic themed reception at the Glendale Lakes Golf Club. The floral designs by Signature Creations and Prestige Floral Studio were absolutely breathtaking and Sounds Abound Entertainment kept the celebrations going all night! Staci and Scott’s whole day was filled with friends, family, smiles, and so much joy!

I have been so looking forward to sharing this wedding with you all – I’ve known Staci my whole life and it was such an incredible honor to get to know her and Scott better as a couple through their planning process, engagement session and to be a part of their wedding day. The love that Staci and Scott have for each other is obvious and they are just as sweet as can be! Congratulations to the happy couple!

LOVED working with these gorgeous ladies!!

Lillian and Felicity had the most beautiful smiles and knew just what to do for the camera – natural little models!! And those big blue eyes!! GAH!!

*insert all the heart emojis here*

One of my favorite parts about being a photographer is meeting new families –  and how cool is it to work with different generations!! It’s such an honor to see the love shared between a family first hand and share that love and personality through images for those families to treasure forever. Its my favorite ❤

Little Silas is 6 months!

I loved hanging out at the beach with this sweet family to document Silas at 6 months! Silas was so full of giggles and silly faces during their session – I couldn’t help but smile while going through their images! And have you seen his eyes?! GORGEOUS!!
