Maternity Photo Shoot : La Jolla, California

Not only have I been dreaming about this day forever, I am so blown away with the dreamy images Taplin Photo captured of my husband, baby bump, and I on the beaches of La Jolla, CA. A little mermaid is on her way, and my love for mermaids and the ocean inspired this Maternity Photo Shoot. We are so blessed to live in such a magical place, and I cannot wait to share my love for the beach and marine life with our daughter!

These memorable images of a special time in our lives will be cherished for years to come, and I highly recommend Taplin Photo to capture your memories as well! Not only did Emily Taplin graduate from the same school as my talented sister Molly Dillon Photography, she is so much fun to do a photo shoot with! Emily Taplin puts you at ease, and she will capture all the laughs and smiles along the way.

Wedding Photos with Your Furry Friend

I am absolutely in love with these photos by Molly Davidson Photography taken with our furry friend, Saylor the Newfoundland. If you cannot have your pet included in your wedding, forget a Trash the Dress session, and opt for a family portrait!

Taken on the cliffs of our hometown in La Jolla, CA., the ocean and our beloved Saylor are parts of our lives that are special to us as a married couple. On our wedding day, my bridal look was much more formal with my hair up, and my husband wore a tuxedo. I chose to go for a more relaxed beach inspired look with loose curls and fewer accessories for myself, while my husband kept a casual yet classic look for this shoot. You can change up your look for an after wedding shoot, and be sure to incorporate your extended furry family. You will be glad you were able to document this new chapter in your life.

Oliver Wedding

When every girl dreams of her wedding day, she imagines a magical experience complete with the perfect groom and the perfect day.  While planning a wedding can be stressful, our wedding day was nothing short of perfect.  It was better than I could have imagined, simply because I was marrying a beautiful man that I gave my heart to.  On that day I felt pure bliss.

I planned the entire Wedding, down to the mints and the peonies in my bouquet.  With the help of family and friends on that day and the days leading up to our wedding, my dream became reality.  A HUGE Thank You to all of these special people we love!!!

On 08.03.13 we held the Big Reveal at La Valencia Hotel in front of their romantic picture window, and proceeded to take bridal party photos on the hotel’s grounds.  We were wed at Mary Star of the Sea in La Jolla, CA., and the Reception followed the Ceremony at The Powerhouse in Del Mar, CA. The Reception site overlooked the Pacific Ocean, and we were lucky enough to have a picture perfect day.
