What if? What if I had left 5 minutes earlier? What if I had taken that job? What if I had just taken that chance? Carissa and Scott don’t have to wonder what if. They KNOW that their life is now the best it can be, because they found each other. They found their best […]

Have you ever had that feeling? You know, THAT feeling. The feeling you get when you suddenly realize that you’re in the wrong place. I don’t know about you, but I usually have a mini panic attack while reaching for my phone to pull up the GPS just for it to tell me, “Yup, you’re […]

These two faces may look pretty familiar to you. (If you were following along on my Instagram this week, you were there when I revealed my promo video that gave you a glimpse into the #KylieComptonCouple Experience. If you missed, no worries!

The Moment There is a moment. A moment at every wedding. At some weddings it’s during the ceremony. At others, the first dance. Many times it is when a father sees his daughter in her wedding gown for the first time. The moment… the moment when my work is no longer work. The moment when […]

The Big Decision What to wear, what to wear? That is a question on MOST people’s minds before the big first date. Do I go fancy and show off what I got? Or do I go more low key to show off my laid back side? Or… does this sweater make it look like I’m […]

Monday: “Oh no! It’s going to rain!” Tuesday: “Yay! Now it says sun!” Wednesday: ” Why oh why?! It says rain again.” Thursday: “Oh my goodness, no rain!” Friday: “Cloudy, I can do cloudy.” Saturday “Ahhhhhhhhh (my version of a chorus of angels singing).

So… what do you say when your long time friend just got engaged and asks you to photograph her wedding, but it’s the day after your own 5 year anniversary party? Oh, and it’s in San Diego, but you’re in Sacramento? Well… You say YES of course!! Some of you may think I’m crazy (my […]

Kind. Excited. Joyful. These three words aptly describe my #kyliecomptoncouples. They also perfectly describe Rebekah and Stan. These two have been amazing from the start. Rebekah has a smile that can light up any room. And the look on Stan’s face when he catches any glimpse of her is enough to make anyone’s heart melt. […]

“OK, I’m ready.” With those words, the door slid sideways and his eyes opened. He gasped. Tears came. His throat got tight. He was seeing his little girl in her wedding dress for the very first time. The dress she would wear as she walked down the aisle. The dress she would wear as he […]
