Rancho Las Lomas Wedding

Rancho Las Lomas
Silverado, California

This is an awesome wedding to post as my last for the year! Morgan and Nick got married in a beautiful location surrounded by their awesome family and friends. Speaking about their friends and family, I have never seen such a big group that was so friendly with the camera! They all made my job eeeeeeeeeasy!

I edited a lot of photos for the blog for two reason, 1) Morgan and Nick waited for these teasers very patiently (thanks you guys!) 2) Morgan's dad told Art that during Morgan and Nick's rehearsal both sets of parents found out that they had something in common. What is that? Both of them did not get their photos from their wedding from their photographer. That sucks! So I just wanted them to see that photographers are nice :)

Here are favorite images from Morgan and Nick's wedding:





The beautiful bride :)


















Morgan and Nick asked for this image because they saw a similar image as a sample


but we also wanted to put some of our style in it.


You guys know how sometimes I have a hard time choosing between color or b&w images, right? Well, here are a few I could not choose just color or just b&w











There's something really romantic about this one that I like






Party time!



Mother-Son dance


Morgan's Father-Daughter dance started off like most


but it quickly became the BEST father-daughter dance!!! Ever!


Now, I leave you with the party people that totally loved the camera :)



On another note, I hope everyone had a happy Thanksgiving Day. I actually sprained my ankle...AGAIN! I did get to enjoy Thanksgiving Day, though. Until I get a little better Art will be replying to some of the e-mails (sorry for the delay) and returning phone calls. What a sweet husband!

On ANOTHER note, my laptop (the one I use to edit my blog images) died :( Out of nowhere it did not turn on. So, if anyone knows of a good place to take it and try to revive it, e-mail me. I am severely attached to my laptop and although I could just get another one, I want this one :(

As soon as I feel better I will start a blog marathon, I promise :)

Theresa & Chris ~ Engaged!

Whittier College

Theresa and Chris decided to have their engagement session at the place where they met and fell in love, Whittier College. If you've been reading my blog for a while, then you know that I love it when my clients choose a location with a special meaning! It allows me to learn more about them and it's also reeeeaaally sweet!

Theresa and Chris showed us around the campus and pointed out special spots throughout our shoot there. We really got to learn a lot about them and who they are. Who are they? Two amazing people that make a beautiful and caring couple :)

After their shoot, Theresa and Chris invited us to go have dinner at a local restaurant called Phlight. They had the best food! Ever! We shared some yummy sweet potato fries, pollo en mole, empanadas, albondigas, and more. It seems like a lot, but it was just enough :) Chris and Theresa are our kind of people...they love food as much as Art and I do! (Theresa & Chris: we already went back to Phlight. Thanks for introducing us to a great restaurant that we would have never know about if it weren't for you!)

Anyway, on to the eye candy!

























We found this spot inside what used to be the gym. I love it!

Portrait Sessions

With wedding season finally over, Art and I are getting ready to enjoy the holidays :)

We will still shoot a few portrait sessions, but we will officially close our booking calendar for this year in 7-10 days from now. So if you want to book a family session, engagement session or any portrait session, you may do so by e-mailing me before then.

To my clients who will have an engagement session, if you don't want to book your engagement session before the end of the year, I will start scheduling e-sessions again by mid January of 09.

Wow! I can't believe I'm already talking about 2009! This year flew by! We are already about 65% booked for next year :) Woo hoo! I can't wait to see what the new year brings!

On another note, be sure to check back tomorrow because I will blog an awesome e-session :)

Fabbie & Jorge ~ Married!

Wayferers Chapel - Palos Verdes, California
Long Beach Airport Marriot - Long Beach, California


Fabbie and Jorge are definitely one of the sweetest people I know. Fabbie, with her contagious smile, can make anyone smile. Jorge with his calm and collected demeanor can keep everyone on track.

On their engagement session Fabbie was really nervous. In fact, I think that she is number one on my list of most nervous in front of the camera :P Although, you would have never guessed she was nervous by looking at their e-session images. Thankfully they had an e-session because on the day of their wedding, Fabbie and my camera were BFFs :) Seriously, she totally rocked the cam! Jorge, who, per Fabbie, was the nervous one, had no problem on their engagement session or their wedding. I am happy to be the one who helped them get over their fear of the camera because now they have some awesome wedding photos :)

Fabbie & Jorge: You guys know that I think you both rock! Thank you so much for choosing us to photograph your wedding. We were honored to be surrounded by such an awesome family. By the way, a big hug and hello to your little sis, Fabbie, who I know will be reading this :) She is definitely a rockstar! Tell her to continue the blog ;)





















Art and I wanted to get a few more images so we asked Fabbie if they were up for it. I'm glad they were because we got some cool indoor shots :)





Art got this shot and I LOVE it!





What a cute cake topper!




The single ladies huddled together to get ready for the bouquet :)
