What do you get when you have a very handsome man, and a beauty pageant contestant….well amazing photos that’s what! So for this engagement session, I think the only difficult part was finding a parking spot in Venice! Other than that, the puppies, the boat, the bikes…..it all was way too easy and super difficult to take a bad photograph! Nicole….lets just say I think she looks like a super model and I swear that girls laughs just about every single time she smiles. No wonder that Bryan fell in love with her! And how about those fur babies! LOVE when my couples bring those guys to the shoots! Can’t wait for this St. Regis Wedding! I just know that A Good Affair, will create the most amazing event XXOO
It’s not very often that you get to start a shoot at 8:30am! But for this busy couple, we certainly had to have an early start! Morgan and Eric were totally full of smiles and ready to have a great time! I loved their energy! We started off in the Los Rios District of San Juan Capistrano, and ended in one of my all time favorite places, The San Juan Capistrano Mission. And ummm hello to the outfits that Morgan was wearing! She totally killed it! I loved everything about this couple and I can not wait to photograph their wedding with the fabulous Kevin Covey! Such an amazing wedding this one will be! XXOO
Such a sweet couple and such a sweet wedding! Young love, what can I say? There is something very very magical about it. Driving a few hours to Santa Margarita Ranch also proved to be the perfect backdrop for this oh so country duo. Rylan had just gotten back from deployment to the open arms of his fiance and now wife! It was really so wonderful to witness them together. The first look, the aniticipation and the love! I loved every last detail that they put together for this wedding. It turned out amazing! As a photographer we really wish that we could photograph couples all day long, but we know that the day is not about a photoshoot. It’s a celebration, so I am always very thankful when couples do allow me plenty of time to play, and in playing I mean deliver the most amazing images! Thank you Kerri Hatter of LVL Weddings and Events for your referral, and seeing that Jennifer is your niece I am honored that you even considered me. Thank you for trusting me with your family! Also thank you Michelle Fairless Photography for being my second shooter and pal while we conquered the country! I had a blast shooting with you!

There is so much to say about this couple that it becomes so hard to write about them. Thankful that they came my way via LVL’s amazing wedding education series, and we booked for their October wedding. THRILLED….I am always so thrilled to be part of a couple that is so much in love. Kara and Jason, are that couple….they just truly melt into each others arms and they are so easy to work with! I mean, how about those puppies too? All around such fun couple. A couple that has had their struggles already, with life, and they for sure know that the person at their side, is the person they want, in good and bad and everything in between. But lets not also state the obvious, that these two are just both drop dead gorgeous! So inside and out, they are two of the most beautiful people I have ever met. Thank you SOOO much for allowing me to witness your adoration for each other….it was such a beautiful day and I was honored to be a part of it! An incredible location with the most amazing team! Emily (LVL EVENTS)….you are amazing and you made sure that this day went on without a hitch! Brian (Elevated Pulse), you are truly amazing at what you so, transforming that room with stunning lighting and of course keeping the dance floor full! My FAV video team to work with, Brian and Ryan of Perryfield Films….I’d swear that together we create the most stunning images. Thank you Kristine for being an incredible second shooter and again to the most amazing couple! Design Visage, Emily and Ella, the girls simple looked amazing!!!!

It happens, when you decide to be a doctor you know? You have to go to school, and you have to meet people, and sometimes you get to meet the person that you are going to marry. For Eric, it happened to be this Princess…yes a real Princess, in fact runner up for Miss PERU!!! Wow! I mean, we can all tell that the camera loves Jax, but she takes princess to a whole new level!
I think what I loved most about their ceremony, was seeing those dreamy blue eye of Eric’s when they first set them on his bride as she walked down the aisle with her father….he did his best to keep those tears in but but much can hide from our cameras. It was so delightful as they both released two doves, to symbolize their love, and dozens after their vows were complete.
After having a stunning ceremony on the grounds of the St. Regis, we finished the celebration at a private home in the Orange County, by VIP Events and Weddings. What a terrific celebration, amazing family and some pretty rad dancing! Congrats Jax and Eric your love is as beautiful as your wedding day! XXOO Thanks you Sanya from VIP Events and Weddings for such a great event, and Amanda Hardesty of the St. Regis as always for being so gracious!
