We are so excited for Amy and David’s wedding in 99 days!! How awesome to have a February 29th leap year wedding! Thank you for choosing JJ. Marie Creative as your wedding coordinators. Congratulations Amy and David!! ❤️ @orangeflowphotography these engagement photos are gorgeous! 📸
My dream date is a romantic candlelit dinner at a nice restaurant followed by snuggling on our couch at home watching a good rom-com. I'm lucky enough to have my parents here in Palm Desert with us on our vacation, so hubby took me out to a fancy dinner last night at @ruthschris and then we headed back to our villa and watched the cutest movie I've seen in a long time. ⠀
Tell me all about your dream date in the comments! 👇🏻

Candle light for days on this gorgeous farm table. We used lots of texture and colorful vessels to make this tablescape romantic and glowing. So much fun!

“Who would’ve thought that four words would change my life forever — she loves white guys.”
Mitch’s opening sentence during our wedding vows had me belly laughing and crying at the same time.
We had some crazy adventures together, babe. You’re my best friend and an incredible Dad. I wouldn’t do this life without you.
Happy birthday my dear husband 💕

Andrew & Adrianne…
There’s a lot I could say about these two. They are both deeply servant-hearted and always think about the needs of their people. They were a true joy to both document and build a deep friendship with. hem in a way that brought out their TRUE selves.
Here’s what A + A had to say about their experience:
“Tori made me feel like a priority from day one. She took the time to get to know us as a couple before even providing a quote which I feel was so important to customizing her services to what we were looking for. I have felt like a priority throughout the entire process, never once questioning her dedication, passion, or excitement to document our special day!”
It’s true–my couples are my priority. I pour my heart into my couples because their wedding days are more than just big parties–they’re full of moments and memories that will be cherished forever. I’m not just going to show up and snap some photos on the sidelines. I’m deeply involved in the process and desire to preserve this season in their lives in a genuine and authentic way by actually knowing their personalities and being as stoked about their wedding day as them.
There are thousands of photographers to choose from and I am always deeply humbled that my couples choose me.
One of the last things couples think about when planning their wedding is where they're getting ready. Of course it is! 📝
When there's so much else to plan, why would the room you're getting dressed in matter so much?
Well, friends. Let me tell you why.
The room you're getting ready in will not only set the tone for the beginning of your day with a decluttered space and everything in it's place, but the team you hired will thank you.
Make-up artists, hair stylists, videographers...and your photographer need space and light to work with.
As a photographer, I will forever adore you if you get ready in a well-lit space by a big window. (Remember creamy skin tones by gorgeous natural window light.)
Not sure if you have the right space, ask me (or show me in my DM). I'd love to help you prepare for the perfect wedding prep room!
Today is my Friday at my day job! I’m so freaking excited because I have so many fun things coming up in the next few weeks, now that photo taking has slowed down a teeny bit.
Tomorrow, Joe, the pups, and I are getting our own photos done by my friend @veetaylorphoto & I’m super excited! I have my last wedding of 2019 on Saturday with Tina & Sean, then the week after is THANKSGIVING! I’m extra excited because 1) short work week and 2) my brother, sister in law, and my two nephews are coming to visit! I freaking love those little boys so I am literally counting down the days. Being an aunt is one of my favorite things in the world!
After Thanksgiving, I have a few engagement shoots with some of my 2019 couples and I’m really excited about that! I LOVE meeting my couples before the wedding day. After that, Joe and I are taking a day off to go to Disneyland for the ENTIRE DAY on Dec 5th. I have an entire notepad dedicated to foods I want to eat throughout the day. Don’t judge me 😂😂 After that, I’m RELAXING, we’re taking a quick trip to Utah for Christmas, and then back to work in early 2020 for three January weddings! Whew. I literally cannot wait!!
Anyone else have awesome plans?! I’d love to hear them! Here’s a warm photo to help combat this chilly weather lately. But TBH - I love it. Do you prefer warm or rainy/cold weather?

What a wild year it’s been. From Oregon, Wyoming, Italy, Switzerland, Patagonia, Moab, Joshua Tree, Colorado, and everywhere in between. Intimate elopements with just two people and absolute ragers like this one in Joshua Tree. I’m in love and proud of the work and travel we’ve done this year.
Now we’re in Moab where our only plans are to catch up on edits and catch up with friends and catch up on SLEEP.
It’s been a good one. ✌🏻🌵
