Sharing a series of sublime scenes from my recent travels through the breahthtaking isle of Bali, Indonesia. Between shooting a beautiful sunset engagement, welcome dinner, and wedding, my friend Eric and I, along with my dear friend Justine of TravelLush, found time to revel in the Balinese culture – exploring its ancient temples, traipsing through rice terraces, sauntering through sea carved caves, floating in azure saltwater pools, and sampling the flavors of local cuisine.  At every turn, Bali proved to be the perfect location for a gorgeous tropical elopement or destination wedding.

It was such a joy to photograph artist Jess Wilcox and her beautiful family in the oak-studded hillsides and golden coast of Central California. From the moment Jess and I met years ago, I knew we would become thick as thieves (and we have!). I adore every moment I’ve shared with her and her lovely fam. xo!
