Arlene & Rommel

Arlene & Rommel made it so easy for us to do our jobs. Such a darling couple! It was their big day and they were more concerned about how everyone else was doing. Arlene even had one of her sisters ask me if I wanted to go up to the suite to relax in between shoots. Too sweet :)

Family & friends were extremely excited to see them tie the knot. I was honored to document their special day and look forward to watch their family grow :)

It was a fun wedding! Thanks to my friend, Roberto Valenzuela for coming out to shoot with me. Wedding Coordinator: Annmarie Sanchez, Hair & Make Up: Joel Sebastian, Videographer: Video Keepsakes, DJ: Feet First Entertainment, Florist: Irene Aquino, Cake: Linda Aquino

Arlene was gorgeous bride!

Here's a slideshow of wedding day highlights...

Little Ryan

When I heard the news, my heart skipped a beat. I truly am very glad to have become a part of my clients' lives. Last year, I photographed Kim & Erik's wedding and not very long ago, I photographed them expecting. Now the wait is over, finally got to meet little Ryan. Born 8.6lbs, 22.6 inches - definitely not an ounce short of adorable!

At 10 days old, look how many expressions we caught from this precious little man...
the "blue-steel" look
the charmer
the huggable
the super cute pout
the heart-breaker :)
and who could resist this shot?Congratulations Kim & Erik!

Kristen & Griff

I was way excited to shoot Kristen & Griff's engagements. We instantly bonded when we met many months ago and seemed to have caught up just where we left off. Kristen & Griff make a gorgeous couple and exude such great energy. I must say it again, I love my clients!

We went all over their "secret" places in Long Beach ;) and had an absolute blast... Popped open a bottle of bubbly to end the night. Ahhh, good times!

A few favorites...

Jeannine & Patrick

It was one of those HOT Southern California days... It eventually turned into that beautiful late afternoon light that we oh so love. Jeannine & Pat make such a cute couple! Smiles that truly complemented each others and the lush greenery that served as our backdrop. These fellow sushi-lovers were so fun to photograph, their August wedding will be awesome!
