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.

 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!

Sam and Simon are the King and Queen of understatements.

When were discussing the details of their engagement session, Sam and Simon told me that they’d like to have their photos taken near their home.

I wasn’t sure what to expect, because well taking a walk around the neighborhood for engagement photos isn’t normal for me.

When I saw their neighborhood my jaw dropped. I couldn’t believe they lived in such a paradise.

I’m super grateful for the opportunity to spend the day we did with Simon and Sam, and for hooking it up with a full season of our new favorite TV show.

Elizabeth and Jon both share a hobby with me and my wife. They love hiking, here’s a quick peak (see what I did there? ;)) at our latest engagement session/hike with this awesome couple. These two have so much love for each other, it made my camera melt. All joking aside, I have to applaud these two. An 8-mile hike in dress shoes/heels isn’t anything to laugh at, but these two, astonishingly excited throughout the whole session, were great.

This won’t be the last you’ll see of Elizabeth and Jon. Stay tuned!

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!
