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!

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!

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 🙂

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.

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.

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.

Nick and Ken met during their college years. They met during a creative arts class that started a huge trend in their relationship- a passion for handcrafted things. In fact, they made some of the details for their wedding. They created rocket shaped table cards, Nick brewed his own special blend of beer for his wedding and Ken created a new cocktail for the ladies. I believe they made some special candy as well, but don’t quote me on that…

Rancho del Diablo Dormido was built by its owners several years ago and is named after a large natural monolithic structure that looks like a sleeping devil. As they say, “when the devil sleeps, the good in all is awakened…” A beautiful home during the week, this venue is a perfect choice for a smaller, more intimate guest list.

There was something very different shooting at this venue. It might’ve been the right combination of temperature, lighting, and location… But everybody was connected emotionally. As the sun set and thermometer loosened up, so did their close friends and family. The laughs and tears poured on.

When the dance floor opened up, there wasn’t a filled seat in Rancho De Diablo Dormido. The music reverberated off the surrounding hills and the darkness enhanced the mood. Normally nobody gets down on a Sunday wedding, but tonight was the exception. Even their grandparents were rockin their socks off!

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.

Rancho Las Lomas is one of the best wedding venues in Southern California. With a mixture of great details and a beautiful location, I felt extremely privileged to be part of Rory and Paul’s gorgeous wedding day.

We started our day with the Ladies. With every minute going by Rory’s excitement became more and more apparent. Her smile become wider as the hour drew on and her boquet bloomed beautifully with vivid petals that filled the room with a scent fit for a royal audience.

Rory and Paul understood that after their first kiss as newlyweds, their day would jump to a hundred miles per hour and they’ll find themselves in the limo on the way to their honeymoon. Rory and Paul took half an hour before the ceremony to take a moment and give each other a first look, a time set apart for them to slow their day down just enough for them to enjoy each other.

After their beautiful ceremony, Rory and Paul walked among Rancho Las Lomas’ orange trees where the romance continued beneath the failing light.

As their day ended and the evening began, the night was filled with the roars of white tigers, the shrill screams of the numerous parakeets around Rancho las Lomas; but the most memorable sound of all was the two families, now united, celebrating the beginning of Rory and Paul’s beautiful union.
