It makes total sense to me that you’d get married and celebrate in a place that feels like home. In this case, Alison & John married in the home of Alison’s contemporary dance mentor, and ate dinner with all their family and friends at tables that were planted amongst her backyard fruit trees. 🍋 It’s that kind of abundance that makes you feel full and thankful for a long time afterwards.
How cool is it that APW featured Katie & Mike’s Joshua Tree Hicksville Trailer Palace wedding this month?! I was so happy that they went as gaga for it as I did. Katie & Mike’s wedding was truly a sight to be seen… a small group of family and friends lovin’ on each other in the desert for a weekend. What a dream, some would call it paradise!
I wrote the following stream-of-consciousness on my Facebook a few days ago and I gave it some thought and decided that it should live here on my blog as well.
A year ago today, I shot Sia‘s wedding in Palm Springs. It was a day with wicked weather that started with heavy rain and lightning bolts that threatened flash floods through the desert resort town. It all seemed so sudden and strange at the time, but I suppose that is what I’ve come to understand about life.

I made Corey a snow globe for a present this last Christmas. A lot of outside forces made 2014 a difficult one for both of us to chew. I thought I would make a snow globe to acknowledge and pay homage to these darker days, a marker in time that we can look upon later in the future.

I spent this last Christmas at home in my apartment, in the neighborhood of Westlake in Los Angeles, with two of my most favorite people, Corey Cunningham and Julie Pepin. Here are a few photographs I snapped on the Christmas morning we spent together.
