We shot Paul and Maggie’s Engagement Session a while back, check it out if you haven’t seen it :)

We photographed their wedding at St Anne’s Catholic Church in Seal Beach, California.

Many wedding days go without a hiccup, many go slowly, many go quickly, but no two are ever alike.

Paul and Maggie’s wedding is one I won’t soon forget.

Their ceremony was small, quiet, and sincere. There wasn’t a dry eye in the room.

While walking around their ceremony, I ran into an old friend. I stumbled upon my childhood neighbor, Timmy- who played beautiful music during the ceremony.

For their romantic session, we walked around and shot around Main Street.

Just like before, Paul was extremely goofy- which came very appreciated as I sometimes get too caught up with taking photos and can get too serious.

Their reception at the Grand in Long Beach, was just as special.

Surrounded by their friends and loved ones, the night went on filled with captivating music, laughs and good times.

This past winter Paul and Maggie had their daughter and I couldn’t be happier for them.

Congrats Paul and Maggie!

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.

Stay tuned for the more gorgeous images from these two!

 We photographed Kris and Jordan’s Engagement Session, last time in Los Angeles. Today we join them for their wedding.

We started the day at the Sheraton in Cerritos, where both Kris and Jordan got ready.

We then moved to their wedding venue at the Rolling Hills Church.

Their reception was held at the Grand in Long Beach.

We had a lot of fun during this one. Every venue we were in that day looked stunning and the bridal party was always full of energy.

Their wedding took place on a Sunday this past spring. On the many weddings I’ve covered, it sometimes is hard for get people on the dance floor.

Even with a workday looming nearby, there was no shortage of people dancing that night, making this one of the rarer occasions.

The crowd loved them, during the speeches, tears flowed, laughter filled the hall and made the night perfect.

Congrats Kris and Jordan!

Laura and Austin at the Balboa Inn

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 :)

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!

I had the chance to team up with the Cypress College Veterans Organization (CCVO) and photograph some of the strongest women in the world.

For one morning, we pampered these ladies. Provided them breakfast, brought in professionals for back rubs, and a make over.

I donated my services to CCVO so that the female Vets can have a portrait of themselves after their makeover.

Don’t let the term “female Veterans,” fool you. While some are finished with their service, some of the ladies are either in the inactive phase of their contract or  still play an active part in protecting our freedom.

 For all the sacrifices these ladies gave, one morning is nothing compared to the countless days they put on the line for our freedom.

The CCVO plays a very active role in supporting various veterans get the education and support that they deserve. On weekends you may find the members of the CCVO giving back through various acts of community service, taking part in charity events and finding any way to help those around them.

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 :)
