Since most people (myself included) have no idea what to do when they get their pictures taken, it’s always fun for me to photograph a professional model — someone with lots of experience who knows what they’re doing when they step in front of a camera. Margarita, a Latvian native who has been modeling for almost 10 years, is definitely one of those people. She is super fun to work with, and we both let our creative sides go wild. In addition to modeling, she has acting experience in both commercials and on TV shows, appearing in commercials for Chevy, Axe, JCPenney, Clean & Clear, McDonalds, AT&T, and Moto X to name a few. She also landed a role as a model for an episode of New Girl on FOX. Above all, Margarita is a fun, carefree, and warm-hearted person, with a lot to offer this world. The last time I photographed her was about a year ago on her wedding day, and I’m grateful we got to work together again.

July 27, 2013 Sarah & Ryan Say ‘I Do’ Malibou Lake, CA
On the ninth of June, Sarah & Ryan tied the knot at the Malibou Lake Mountain Club in Agoura Hills, CA. The two have been sweethearts since high school and even attended the same middle school. I too went to both the same middle and high school as they did in a city called Evanston, right outside of Chicago. I never imagined I’d be photographing their wedding years later! The dynamic duo has lived in LA for five years now, both enjoying successful careers. Sarah is a TV producer and documentary film maker, and Ryan is a personal trainer and incense sales rep. Their wedding day was super fun and I was able to see lots of familiar faces from our hometown. My awesome friend and photographer, Jillian Sipkins, who also grew up in Evanston, was my second shooter for the day. I’m very happy for Sarah and Ryan, living proof that unconditional love exists. . .and lasts. Congratulations! <3
