Villa de Amore

Kristen & Tim
Villa de Amore
26 August 2006


Saturday's wedding was a lot of fun! It was a cultural fusion. There was a string quartet, a mariachi band, Filipino folk dancers, the USC marching band, and a lot more! The Asian inspired d├ęcor at Villa de Amore's lush gardens created a wonderful setting. Guests traveled from all over to celebrate with Kristen & Tim. It was a truly beautiful day from start to finish.

Here are a few favorites...

Love my Leathercraftsmen

Got my new books today! I was so excited opening the boxes, it felt like Christmas morning. My new Leathercraftsmen albums arrived and they're awesome! Looking at the designed album from my computer screen is one thing but looking and actually holding the real thing, priceless! :)

Michelle, Craig, Maci & Evyn

Michelle of Creative Blu is a fellow vendor at the Los Angeles Weddings Magazine. She does very cool handcrafted invitations, I love them! She & hubby Craig have the most adorable little girls, Maci & Evyn. I took their portraits today and it was such a blast! Photographing the little ones is becoming more & more addictive...

Maci's a darling, she loved the camera.
I've never had conversations with a 2 year old where we actually understood each other until today!

Sisters, best friends.

I got to practice a little sports photography with little Evyn on the couch...


Craig is not only a graphic designer but a fantastic handyman too. He did this chair Maci is sitting on.

Seems like these little girls will be just like mom & dad

They have such a warm & lovely home...

& a beautiful family indeed! finally caught everybody smiling at me :)
