 We photographed Jon and Liz’s wild engagement session this past summer. If you haven’t checked out those photos, go ahead and do so!

 Jon’s day started in Seal Beach, in a quaint little beach house with his father and a few of his friends and his dog.

 While Liz got ready at the comfort of her Father’s house in Orange County.

Not everything goes according to plan when it comes to life in general, Jon and Liz’s wedding was not the exception.

Right after Liz’s mother laced up her dress, her brother walks up to her and tells her news that would change the course and drastically effect her wedding day.

Ari, her brother, told her that he had been on and off the phone with the Limo company for the past hour. At first they were running late, then nothing. The last call was to tell him that her sister wedding did not have the reserved limo available. Their limo broke down on the way to Orange County and the back up limo went out of commission on the way there.

Liz, takes the news kinda hard. But just like our 8 mile hike of an engagement session , she kept her chin up, moved on and figured out the ride situation for her and her wedding party.

We arrived at St Leon’s Cathedral for her wedding an hour later, with enough time to spare…

Her wedding was gorgeous, one of the most colorful I’ve been too. Her and Jon make the perfect couple, both funny, and quick witted.

Their family, just as funny. They approached me with a pretty funny request- they wanted a Mafia Style photo. Of course I obliged.

It’s been some time since I’ve blogged, so I thought I’d kick of the year by doing my first full Black and White post. *Their wedding was shot in color, I’ve just been wanting to do one of these for a while now…**

We photographed Julie and Carlos gorgeous wedding in Orange County this past year.

I met Carlos through my wife, who went to school with Julie. I got along with Carlos very well, we’re both into cars and his interest in the military kept our conversations long and pleasant.

The thing I remember most about Julie was that she’s into Video Games as much as I am into photography, her gaming system trumps my photo editing set up. She showed me her gaming room and my jaw dropped.

Their wedding day was filled with joy and laughter along with the occasional happy tears followed by a very emotional and eventful wedding ceremony.

When I dropped off their wedding album last month, I met their adorable firstborn, Elijah, who quickly took a liking to me.

I’m very happy to report that this couple was as happy as the day I shot these photos. They looked a bit sleep deprived but after meeting Elijah, I knew it was worth it.

Here’s to you and your beautiful family Carlos and Julie!

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!

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.

If you could recall, I photographed Josh and Theresa’s engagement session earlier this year.

Josh and Theresa got married at Sunset Hills in Apple Valley, CA. With lightning storms, 50 mile per hour winds, and a brushfire in the background, the day did not look well for this gorgeous couple. But after a few hours, right before their ceremony, the skies cleared up, the winds settled, and the Apple Valley Brushfire Response team quickly took care of the fire. Josh and Theresa’s wedding continued and very beautifully, I might say.

Tears fell during the ceremony, and the applause filled the room as the curtains revealed the beautiful weather during Josh and Theresa’s first kiss as husband and wife.

During the Reception, Josh had a special song to sing to Theresa and was joined by his groomsmen. Complete with a choreographed dance number, Josh made sure Theresa would never forget their special night.

Josh and Theresa’s wedding was a great reminder that even though not everything may fall into place early on in a wedding, it doesn’t mean things won’t work out beautifully, as they did that night.

A few days after their engagement session, MTV contacted me for a wedding to cover and for Josh and Theresa’s wedding, we were joined by MTV’s media crew to film the wedding for their Show “Quiero Mi Boda.” If you’d like to view a short clip of their wedding as featured on “Quiero Mi Boda,” please click this link: Josh and Theresa @ Quiero Mi Boda.

Josh and Theresa in Santa Monica

June 2nd, 2011

Josh and Theresa were engaged last year. They were taking care of some movie-famous elephants when one particular elephant had a package for Theresa. A box. And inside that box was the ring that Theresa had been waiting for all her life… And that brings us to today’s engagement session. We started our day off […]

 

Josh and Theresa were engaged last year. They were taking care of some movie-famous elephants when one particular elephant had a package for Theresa.

A box. And inside that box was the ring that Theresa had been waiting for all her life…

And that brings us to today’s engagement session. We started our day off at a museum with a beautiful view of the whole city. Josh and Theresa got right on it, these two are naturals!

The weather went from bright and warm to dark and cold. I thought things were turning for the worst but when Josh held Theresa closer to keep her warm, it made for one extremely beautiful photo.

We finished our afternoon off by taking a long walk down the pier and having a great dinner together.

Engagement sessions are a great way for photographers to get to know their couples better.

WPPI!!VEGAS BABY!!!

February 25th, 2011

I took a quick vacation to get better at my craft. WPPI rocked this year and I walked away with a new set of tools and skills. Look out 2011.

 

I was at Las Vegas earlier this week for WPPI (Wedding and Portrait Photographers International.)

WPPI is pretty much Spring Break for Wedding Photographers.

I was able to meet and greet with some vendors and other wedding photographers from around the Globe.

It was great being able to experience this for the first time and I believe I walked away from the experience a better photographer.

Look out 2011, with a new bag of skills and tools- I’m ready for you.

Nina and Mesh met a few years ago at the Camp Snoopy dorms at UCSD. They plan on having their ceremony sometime next year Kathmandu, Nepal.

Their engagement session took place in the same area where they met in San Diego. We were able to join them for their romantic stroll down memory lane.
