Sunset Beach | Shoot and Meet Photography Event

If you're a regular reader of my blog, you'll recall that about a year ago I joined a small Facebook group called Shoot and Meet. Shoot and Meet is a group that organizes events for local photographers every few months to network and photograph each other. At first I was really shy about getting to know other photographers in the area - I can be a bit of a wallflower at times- but now after attending four of these events this has become a wonderful photography family. These...

Newport Beach Bridal Portraits

Last month I teamed up with my favorite cosmetologist/Sister in law to put together a styled bridal portrait session. We started off the afternoon with Jennifer Philleo working her hair and makeup magic on our bride, Karen. Then it was time to meet up with our groom, Dillon and head down to Newport Beach for bridal portraits! Our model Karen was kind enough to bring along her DIY silk bouquet for the day! I love the way she mixed burlap and bling!   These two made my job so easy! A...

Laguna Village Wedding | Apryl & James

A few months ago a my friend Candi of Drea Clark Photography got in touch with me because her sister Apryl was about to get married and they needed a photographer to cover the parts of the day that Candi was busy with bridesmaid duties. It was such an honor to be a part of their beautiful wedding day at Laguna Village, Laguna Beach, CA! Check out some of my shots from the day: ...

Alta Vista Country Club Wedding | Jen & Ninad

I have been so excited to share this wedding, I could hardly wait. Jen and Ninad picked a beautiful day for their Alta Vista Country Club wedding in Placentia, CA.  While all weddings are special, theirs was extra special! Jen and Ninad wanted to celebrate both of their family cultures so instead of one ceremony, they opted for TWO amazing ceremonies. It was incredible! They chose Alta Vista Country Club, in Placentia for the setting of their big day. This venue provided the perfect amount of space to...

Diamond Bar Portrait Session | Chris

High school. It's that time when you're starting to figure out who you are and where you want to go in life. A rite of passage. Photographing teens/high schoolers has unexpectedly become one of my favorite parts of this career. Especially for the ones I photographed when they were little. To me, it's an honor to document them as they grow into their personalities. And my absolute favorite part is that magic moment during the session where their confidence peaks and they really shine in front of the camera. For...

What to Wear: Engagement Session

One of the most common questions I get when booking my sessions is "What should we wear?" Since everyone has their own individual styles and personal preferences, this can sometimes be a challenge to explain without any visual aids. In order to help, I've decided to put together some visual wardrobe inspiration. For today, I'm starting with engagement sessions. This particular combo is both simple enough to keep the focus on the couple, but the color scheme will add a layer of drama without distracting the viewer from the...

Black Gold Golf Club Wedding Rehearsal Dinner | Yorba Linda, CA

A few weeks ago I was invited to photograph Jen & Ninad's beautiful Black Gold Golf Club wedding rehearsal dinner in Yorba Linda, CA. This intimate affair was a great way to kick off the weekend's wedding festivities! Friends and family of the couple gathered at this beautiful golf club to celebrate with Jen and Ninad on their last night before they tie the knot. During the evening, the venue coordinator invited us to take a few photos on the green. The light was gorgeous that evening. Jen and Ninad looked fabulous! Contact Belinda Visit...
