Intimate Backyard Wedding in Buena Park, CA

When most people think of weddings they picture giant ballrooms filled with hundreds of guests, elaborate lighting, waiters, etc. And while I adore those kind of weddings, I've kind of fallen in love with the more intimate settings during 2015. Twice this year I've had the privilege of photographing weddings that had less than 100 guests and were hosted in small, but beautiful, backyards of private residences. While the big parties are always fun, the thing I've grown to love about the smaller weddings is the intimacy, the...

Intimate Pacific Palisades Wedding | Roy & Lorena

Roy and Lorena wanted to keep their wedding day simple and family oriented. They chose a beautiful, private residence in the Pacific Palisades to host under 50 guests for their special day. They gave their personally written vows against the breathtaking backdrop of the pacific ocean. Like many of those present, I found myself holding back tears as they promised to love and cherish each other for eternity. There's no doubt in my mind that Lorena and Roy are the perfect match. Here's a few of my favorite moments...

Huntington Beach Engagement Session | Roy & Lorena

On Roy and Lorena's first date, they met up in Huntington Beach for lunch and then went for walk in a quaint little park nearby. That's where it all began. As they talked, laughed, and got to know one another sparks flew and they began to see that there could be something special between them. Over the course of the next several years they would discover how special those sparks between them truly are. Then, in 2014 Roy asked Lorena to come along with him on a trip to...

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...

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.

Shangri La Estate, Temecula, CA | Styled Wedding Photography

Last year I joined a photography group on Facebook whose purpose was to network and help photograph each other. Every few months we get together, mingle, and photograph one another so that some of us can portfolio build and others can get photos of themselves. Each event has brought more and more new faces to our little photography family. And last month the styled wedding photography session at Shangri La Estate in Temecula, CA brought more than ever before. Shangri La Estate is a fairly new, but GORGEOUS wedding...
