While Carmageddon was wreaking havoc in Los Angeles, we were in the Inland Empire photographing Brigitte and Elliot’s intimate wedding.

If you recall, Brigitte and Elliot joined us last time in Fullerton for the engagement session.

Brigitte got ready at her sister-in-law’s house, where her daughters did her make up. There was a stillness in the air that I can’t describe. Brigitte was extremely excited, yet calm.

Our favorite part of the wedding while Brigitte was getting ready. These two cute little girls were having what seemed like the time of their lives dancing around the house, and when Brigitte got her dress on, it stopped them in their tracks. One the girls began to cry.

The little moments are what makes a wedding special. Most weddings have the dress, bouquets, a processional, a first dance, but the little moments are the ones that separate a wedding from the rest. To me, they stick out the most and make the best stories.

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.

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.)

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.
