Old Ranch Country Club Wedding Photography

Old Ranch Country Club Wedding Photography Highlights

In addition to shooting for myself, I also help out other local photographers by second shooting. One of the photographers I work with often is Gary Coelho and today, I wanted to share a few highlights from a wedding I helped with him last year at Old Ranch Country Club in Seal Beach, CA. Old Ranch Country Club is nestled in a hidden corner of Seal Beach that's between the 405 freeway and Los Alamitos. It's got a beautiful structure and a fabulous ceremony view! The golf course also...

The Ranch at Laguna Beach Wedding Highlights

Recently I had the opportunity to assist Gary Coelho Photography on a wedding for one of their sweet couples, Joan and Jason at The Ranch at Laguna. The Ranch at Laguna Beach is a gorgeous gem of a venue! It's a hotel and spa that's tucked in the canyon along PCH between Laguna Beach and Aliso Viejo. The roomy bungalows make for a  great place for the bridal party to get ready and for out of town wedding guests to stay as well. It was a gorgeous wedding with beautiful scenery...

Groomsmen Gift Ideas

When it comes to weddings, sometimes it can seem like the girls get all the attention. So today, I'm happy to share a few groomsmen gift ideas that the guys will actually love! Joe from www.groovyguygifts.com reached out to me recently and offered to send us a sample of one of their personalized "guy gifts" in exchange for an honest review. I don't normally write posts like this, but I thought these offerings were definitely worth checking out. They have quite a selection of items to pick from, so...

Pantone Ultra Violet Wedding Inspiration for 2018

Last week the color experts at Pantone announced it's pick for 2018: Ultra Violet 18-3838 I feel like we saw a lot of purple tones during the 2017 wedding season, so I'm curious if the trend will continue into next year. Just for fun, I thought we could look back at some of my favorite violet weddings from the past year. If you're looking for ultra violet wedding inspiration, look no further. ;)   Our editorial shoot earlier this year with Kimberly Persons at Marbella Country Club had dramatic pops of...

Should We Have a First Look?

One of the questions that my clients often ask as they're creating their wedding timeline is "Should we have a first look?" More than anything, your wedding day is about you and your husband (or wife) to be. If any particular tradition is important to the two of you, then, by all means, stick to it. However, if you and your fiancee are open to a different approach, there are definitely some great benefits to having a first look. What is a first look? A first look is a special time...

Long Beach Wedding Photography | Jocelyn & Oscar

Jocelyn & Oscar are so sweet together that watching them kinda just makes you want to melt into a warm and fuzzy puddle. Jocelyn still scrunches her nose when he whispers in her ear and Oscar still can't hide the flush in his cheeks when she takes his hand. Everyone who knows them says the same thing, "man those two were just hand made for each other!" For their wedding day, they opted for simple elegance and of course, LOT's of purple, since it's Jocelyn's favorite color! The ceremony...
