If you are new to the blog, I’m in the midst of my first personal blog challenge.  I’m posting a heart a day for the first fourteen days of February just for a little bit of Valentines Day fun. So here is heart number 4.  It’s another example of Michelle and I having fun making […]

Meredith Perdue - This is a great image- I love this idea, Alice!

alice - Hi Lindsay, Thanks for coming by. I’m embarrassed to admit it, but it took me a little while to figure out your little message was a heart… guess I’m not quite as cutting edge as I imagine myself to be. xoxo

Lindsay - <3

heart {no. 3}

I dipped into the archives tonight to bring you heart number three in the 14 hearts blog challenge, but this one is worth repeating. Karina and Bruno had an amazing wedding at the Figueroa Hotel in Los Angeles famous for it’s Moroccan flair and the Blue Door.  Here is a little fun my second shooters […]

laure - Erica and I trying doing that one night! We had the wrong kind of flashlight!!! Very cool!

Beth - That is really cool!

wedding albums {new portfolio}

I recently heard another photographer say “It is not only our job to make beautiful images for our clients, but to also guide them through to the end of the experience… the end being the final destination for the photography.” When properly done, an album will tell your story.  You can pull it off a […]

Jill - art + memories + something you can touch = WOW

Brianna Phelan - The album is beautiful. Great job (:

Marianne Lozano - looks great Alice!

laure - Love, love, love this album!

Cathy - My wedding album is the BEST money I spent for my wedding. Fifteen years later, we still take it out and look at it. The kids are fascinated by it too.

Beth - The quality of the album paper and binding is wonderful, combined with your design and gorgeous images, its divine!

Noelle - This is fabulous – I love how the images are not constrained to one page. And the double page spread – it reminds me of Life magazine – uber professional and memorable…..

winter semi formal {photo party}

I’ve added a new “photo booth” service as an a la carte option for my 2010 clients.  It’s brand new service, so we thought we would try it out last weekend.  My niece invited her friends over to my house for a little pre-dance photo party, before they headed out for a great night at […]

Beth - Aw! I love them all, but especially the first one!

Noelle - What fun – and a cool way to get pictures of your guests (that show personality)!

newlyweds {alma + david}

Back in early November, I had the extreme pleasure and honor of photographing Alma and David, during a photo workshop led by Kurt Gerber.  It was yet another perk of attending Pictage’s PartnerCon in New Orleans.  At the time of the photo session, Alma and David had only been married for two weeks.  They had […]

megan + ernie {the portraits}

And now for the portraits. Ernie gazing, Megan beaming, and some yummy Santa Barbara sunshine… I think these next two images are becoming sort of a signature set for me.  I love the cheek kiss, and I love processing them in this vintagey-sepia-love. Love the sunsets in Santa Barbara! Michelle drew this cute heart in […]

Noelle - I can hear that Cole Porter song:

The night is young, the skies are clear
And if you want to go walkin’, dear
It’s delightful, it’s delicious, it’s de-lovely

It is de-lovely!

alice - Thank you Jill!

Jill (Fridlund) Alessandra - lovely, dreamy, sensitive, intimate, true.

megan + ernie {the ceremony}

The first time we met in person was on their wedding day, yet they felt so familiar… Megan and Ernie are wonderful people… truly lovely.  Their wedding day was beautiful, and seemed to flow so easy without stress and complications (minus one ornery zipper on  a bridesmaid’s dress). I’ll start of this post with some […]
