Wild Flower Engagement Session

Wildflower season is one of my favorite times in Bakersfield and I was lucky enough to get to photograph my friends Morgan and Matt in the flowers this year!  We had to hop a fence to get to them, but what a great time we had.  Check out these awesome photos of Morgan and Matt!! So excited for their 2014 wedding!

Senior Photos in Bakersfield, California

While deciding what to post about this week, I noticed that I have done quite a few posts on engagement sessions.  Though I still have some engagements to share with all of you, I decided to break my pattern up just a bit and show some love to my class of 2013 seniors!  We always have a blast photographing our seniors.  Check out their awesomeness below!

Congrats class of 2013!

Kern County Museum Engagement Session

The Kern County Museum (or as I call it, Pioneer Village) is one of my favorite places for pictures!  Not only is it really cool to learn about the history of Bakersfield, but I find a new place to photograph each time I visit.

A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of photographing Rob and Blanca’s engagement session at the museum and it was a blast!  They are super fun, totally awesome, AND they are DODGER fans!!!!  (That’s right, I love that they love my team.) We had a great time joking, laughing, and and taking pictures and we can’t wait for their October wedding!!!!

Styled Shoot: Snow White

“Mirror Mirror on the wall, who is the fairest of them all?”

For my second Disney inspired style shoot, I choose Snow White…..but why get typical?  Instead of copying Snow White, I chose to be inspired by the colors and the personality of the character.  Snow is quiet, lovely, slightly doe eyed, curious, beautiful, etherial and enchanting and I wanted to photograph those FEELINGS.  I wanted to look at these photos and feel like I had been swept away to another world of fairy tale creatures and curious princesses.  I wanted to feel inspired and soft and fuzzy inside when I gazed upon the final product. (and I gotta say, I’m pretty excited about the job that Sam and I did together) I don’t think I can pick a favorite…..

Here are the images from the Snow White style shoot.  Styled Disney themed shoots are one of my passions of photography….hopefully you all feel as inspired and warm as I do when you look at them….
