"I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where. I love you simply, without problems or pride: I love you in this way because I do not know any other way of loving but this, in which there is no I or you, so intimate that your hand upon my chest is my hand, so intimate that when I fall asleep you close your eyes." - Pablo Neruda
I had the amazing opportunity to go to one of Jose Villas workshops this summer. Jose and his whole team are amazing. They are all obviously talented but also incredibly kind and great mentors. Here is a portrait session that Summer at Grey Likes styled. Team Hair and Make up perfected their look. I could not be more grateful to every one involved. A big post is coming your way.

“It was rather beautiful: the way he put her insecurities to sleep.The way he dove into her eyes and starved all the fears and tasted all the dreams she kept coiled beneath her bones.” ― Christopher Poindexter
John and Gillian have a playfulness within their relationship that makes anyone who spends time with them smile. I know their wedding is going to maintain that same spirit and it will be pure bliss.
"I want your love to consume me like an oversized winter coat. Hands clasped around my waist like buttons done up properly." - Unknown
Trekking through the snowy mountain bases and starring out over the beautiful lakes with this couple made for a wonderful Mammoth adventure. I am not ready for winter to end but thanks to Jeff and Haley I can hang on to it a bit longer.
“Then love knew it was called love. And when I lifted my eyes to your name, suddenly your heart showed me my way” -Pablo Neruda Good bye 2013. Thanks for being rad. I thought we would end it on a high note. Congrats Brian and Cara. Thanks for the amazing weekend. We can't wait for the big day. Hugs.
Our Jess is getting married!! We could not be happier for her. Sometimes so many wonderful events happen so close together that it's hard to slow down and share them all. Jess is one of those wonderful things. She started out as one of our interns. Quickly became everyone's friend. Graduated. Came back as an assistant. Became engaged to the love of her life. Then the next week, started a job at Dreamworks. Although we miss having her close to us, we are all so so proud and happy for her.Here are some sweet engagement pictures of Jess and her love Mike enjoying South Park and the ever yummy Eclipse Chocolate.
Cheers to the beautiful couple,

I've got so much love for these two. Laura and Jake are the kind of people that you can tell from 200 feet away that they belong at the beach having a good time. Their wedding is coming up later this month and I have a big smile on my face. Although they only had a few months to plan it's going to be amazing. Alison Howard is on the case!

The overcast sky was no match for us. Bayley and Craig and I were determined to have a beautiful San Diego day near the beach. Bayley and Craig live in Oklahoma and are having a dream destination wedding here in San Diego in the fall. The Hotel Del is going to be the perfect backdrop for all of their friends and family to experience Coronado and I could not be happier to be their photographer. I'm super excited to see what Luxe Events, Root 75 and Brightly Designed dreams up for these two cool kids.xoxo Suzanne
