Propellers from our Malibu retreat

A few of the faces I got to spend a week with last month at Propel – The Retreat.  I miss our late night conversations, roaming around the Malibu mansion, and sharing delicious meals with such inspiring people.  Can’t wait for the next! And I may even be ready to bring some Propel alumni back to help!

You see that cute pregnant girl there?  That’s Ngoc, the one who helps me stay organized.  Crazy fun fact about this photo… it is probably the last photo of her pregnant!  I made this photo right before we checked out… and her water broke the very next morning!!!

Mock Wedding at Saddlerock Ranch | Propel Photography workshop

I’m SO excited to finally be able to share with you these gorgeous images from the last Propel photography workshop.  This is easily one of the most beautiful things I’ve ever shot… and it was all dreamed up by the insanely creative ladies over at Utterly Engaged.  If you haven’t, you have to see all the photos from me and my Propellers in the current issue of Utterly Engaged, Ruffled, and 100 Layer Cake

Together with a team of talented vendors, Utterly Engaged styled a gorgeous mock wedding for us, from getting ready, to ceremony, to reception.  These Zebras were the source of our inspiration, but check out the current issue of Utterly Engaged to see how they went from inspiration to reality.  It was amazing to see how they went from a sketch to this stunning set up.

We got to eat dinner here:
