Featured : The Knot Magazine – Maya & Dave

In December 2010, I wrote down some goals. What began as a hobby, has turned into a legitimate career. Something that I eat, sleep, breathe and nurture. Seeing the world, intimacy and pure joy from behind a lens is a great love of mine. A love that I want to fight for, day in and day out to make sure this dream of mine continues. Topping my list of goals for 2011 was one thing, always smile with your heart. The rest of my list was filled with sentences containing words like sparkle, twirls, travel, cupcakes and finally, in big bold pink letters, GET PUBLISHED! I am so happy that among other items on my list, I can now put a big check mark next to “smile with your heart” and “get published”.

A huge thanks to Rebecca Crumley at The Knot, (who is now an LA resident!!) for passing Maya & Dave’s wedding along. I am so so so crazy ecstatic that their wedding is being shared with Southern California brides everywhere. It is such an inspiration and I’m honored to have been a part of it. The magazine is on newsstands now so Mom, get out there and buy a copy! 😉
