Marissa and Randall’s wedding was a day to remember. There is nothing we love more than a wedding that is heart felt and filled with so much emotion. Streams of tears, smiles so wide, and endless laughter filled this day beautifully.

I had the pleasure of being the wedding photographer for one of my oldest friends.

Their wedding took place at the David L Baker Golf Course in Fountain Valley.

Laura and Austin at the Balboa Inn

April 20th, 2013

Let’s talk about second shooting. In almost every wedding I photograph, I bring along a second shooter(sometimes a third.) A second shooter isn’t an assistant, they’re there to photograph a wedding alongside the main photographer. An added set of eyes or a second shoulder to help with the stresses of wedding photography, but usually they’re […]

Let’s talk about second shooting. In almost every wedding I photograph, I bring along a second shooter(sometimes a third.) A second shooter isn’t an assistant, they’re there to photograph a wedding alongside the main photographer. An added set of eyes or a second shoulder to help with the stresses of wedding photography, but usually they’re there to provide just the right amount of moral support.

On my weekends free, I’m usually more than happy to help other photographer friends shoot weddings. These weddings give me a chance to sharpen my skills, try new angles, and meet some awesome people.

I photographed this wedding alongside my friend, Craig from Craig Norris Photo, sometime last year.

I’m grateful for every wedding I photograph and the awesome people I meet in them.

During this wedding I met a hilarious cast of characters from the bridal party. The almost serious, but not quite so, groom, Austin and his amazingly wild bride, Laura.

I loved their attitude about everything, super laid back and so easygoing that it wouldn’t have been hard to forget I wasn’t a guest at their wedding.

Special Thanks to Craig for allowing me the chance to second shoot this 🙂

southern california wedding photographers, beach bridal sessions

Princess and Steven didn’t have a chance to get a wedding photographer to their ceremony so they had their long overdue romantic session yesterday. Them being the adventurous couple they are, wanted to get some sand between their toes and shoot on the beach… As a self proclaimed beach bum, I had no choice but to tag along and capture the love between the two. I don’t normally post teasers on the blog, but I thrive on the excitement of the couples we photograph, so I decided to start with Princess and Steven.

These two are hilariously in love. There wasn’t a quiet moment between the two and Steven does a great job at making her smile and laugh. Congratulations Princess and Steven! Hope you like your teasers!

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.
