Kat and Jan were married at the end of summer at the Retro Ranch in Temecula, California. They were referred to me by one of our  favorite second shooters, Ferdinand.

Kat and Jan both love to rock climb and paintball- I doubt they do both at the same time, but I may have just created a new sport.

From what I can remember, it was 110 degrees on their wedding day- people were anxiously fanning themselves to stave the heat.

A dry hot wind blew and it made it hard for the mothers’ to light the candle as the ceremony started.

The anxiety went disappeared and time slowed as soon as Kat began walking down the aisle.

There were several tears that dropped and laughters shared that day.

My favorite moment was when Kat’s dad had pulled the trigger a bit too soon and mistook Kat and Jan’s first dance as the father-daughter dance. Jan played on like a true gentleman and kept his cool.

Right after the first dance, a flashmob broke out and a large group of cousins, colleagues, and friends danced in celebration of the beautiful newlyweds.

Enjoy their photos as we enjoyed being a part of their wedding.

 Me and Joanna go way back we first met literally over 14 years ago. I believe we had history class together in 7th Grade.

When I heard that she was getting married, I was very glad that she contacted me for her San Diego Wedding this coming summer.

This engagement session was the first time I had met David, I try not to judge a book by its cover, but David looked like a pretty tough guy.

So I tried using tough guy (he works with chemicals so automatically thought Breaking Bad) things to connect with him, come to find out that he’s actually super down to earth and crazy easy to work with.

Either of the two barely had to be posed. As we walked through each location we photographed that day I would tell them to stop when I saw an area photogenic enough.

Their candid moments seemed like they were practiced and it all worked together to the benefit of my camera.

The Chemistry between these two was very obvious and it made my job super easy that day.

Enjoy the images!

Kytia and Jerrell, an Anniversary in the Woods

February 4th, 2012

we joined kytia and jerrell for their anniversary portrait session in the romantic woods surrounding the fullerton hills in southern california. We enjoyed a warm afternoon in the golden fall light. Kytia and Jerrell were married in Hawaii, on a destination wedding.

 

Kytia and Jerrell were married in Hawaii a few years back before we knew them. This past fall, we shared a special romantic session with them for their Anniversary.

As we walked around the woods, I got to know Jerrell and Kytia a bit more. We talked about Jerrell’s comic book series, “the Red R,” And Kytia’s blossoming acting and modeling career.

I knew that Kytia was used to being photographed and Jerrell was normally behind a pencil when it came to creating art, so this shoot was a bit more challenging than usual.  To keep Kytia from being bored, we made sure that it wouldn’t be the same as any fashion shoot she’d been to, so at the risk of sounding cheesy and cliché we had to keep it real (cue 90’s hiphop music.)

If you can remember, we photographed Ashley and Oscar’s romantic engagement session in Long Beach some time back. If you haven’t checked those photos out, I suggest giving it a look real quick.

Ashley and Oscar had their intimate wedding at the Quiet Cannon Resort in Los Angeles.

Brian and Jen met back in high school. Their relationship grew and grew until one day Brian left for the Navy. Although hugely difficult, Jen held on during numerous deployments, they wrote each other long emails and spoke whenever they could.

Brian and Jen decided to have their ceremony and reception in their backyard. She loved having family over and she couldn’t think of a better place to open a new chapter of their lives together.

Special Thanks to my wife, Tweedy for second shooting this wedding with me :)

Ashley, Oscar and their Camaro

January 10th, 2012

During one of our client meetings, I asked if there was a location or an event that could tie together their relationship, something that had always been there and that will probably always be there. They both looked at each other and told me that this Camaro would be it.

While they were dating, still in high school, Ashley used to bring Oscar lemonade as he worked on his Camaro.

Throughout the years, it would bring them to places, require their attention, and give them shelter when it rains.

Brandon and Jennifer met back in high school. Jennifer’s parents owned a small restaurant franchise in Fulleton and they hired Brandon to do the dishes. After they worked a few shifts together, they knew that there was a spark. Fast forward ten years and these two still look at each other like it’s their first date.

Speaking of their first date, Brandon took Jennifer to the Fullerton Arboretum, where they spent the day feeding ducks and getting to know each other. It was only suitable that they get married here. The Fullerton Arboretum was the perfect setting for this couple. Brandon and Jennifer’s choice to keep things simple allowed their guests to focus on what’s truly important in the wedding, the bride and groom.

With the sun setting and the temperatures dropping, it became time for Brandon and Jennifer to step towards the dance floor. And as their first dance reached its climax, there was not a dry eye present . But don’t let the crying fool you, when it came down to throw down and boogie there wasn’t a single person who was in their chair.Their guests literally danced into the night.

Miguel, Amelia, and their two Adorable Girls

December 31st, 2011

Stop by and Check out Miguel and Amelia’s Gorgeous Family Portraits. When I was a kid, I always heard about how boring family sessions can be, so I made sure that not only did Miguel and Amelia had fun, but to pick a location where their children can have fun and interact with the settings without the distracting playground stuff. No matter how old you are, a day in the woods can be a great experience!

 

I met Miguel and his family about a year ago. Miguel, is actually another photographer friend of mine. When I was starting out, he was one of the photographers who took me under their wing and showed me the ropes in this business. Again, I was very privileged to be selected by a fellow photographer for photos. There wasn’t a dull moment throughout the whole shoot, although shy at first, the kids eventually warmed up and started running about and left me alone with their parents– it had been a while since Miguel and Amelia’s engagement photos so I figured we had time for a few intimate sessions. When I was a kid, I always heard about how boring family sessions can be, so I made sure that not only did Miguel and Amelia had fun, but to pick a location where their children can have fun and interact with the settings without the distracting playground stuff.

Fizzah and Ronnie’s Nikkah

December 30th, 2011

I met Fizzah in the classroom over a year ago, like me she’s also an event photographer. I felt flattered and honored that she asked me to shoot her Nikkah at the Grove earlier this year. I understand how hard it is for other shooters to look for photographers, and it’s always a compliment when a photographer asks me to shoot his or her wedding. Ronnie and I have alot in common actually, we both enjoy big cars with lots of horsepower and we both come from the Midwest. During their first look and romantic session, there was one thing very obvious. These two, were in love– MADLY in love.

Brigitte and Elliot started dating six years ago. Elliot, a successful HVAC technician, met Brigitte while he was doing some work in the office she worked at at the time. Fast forward six years and they  began planning their wedding at the Trilogy Country Club.

We started their engagement session at the beautiful Villa Del Sol in Fullerton and we finished it off with a short hike. These photos were taken this past spring in a secluded and very intimate location, I love the how much the color in the leaves popped and the warmth of the golden sunlight brought out the romance between this gorgeous couple. It didn’t take long before the magic of the woods took over and we no longer had to direct Brigitte and Elliot, the moments that happened while my shutter clicked were genuine and real. As they laughed and flirted with each other, it was evident that their wedding day couldn’t come any sooner.
