Ceremony Magazine Party

The annual Ceremony Magazine party was at The Richard Nixon Library. Coordinated by one of my favorites, Carolyn Chen of The Special Day. It is where Southern California's finest vendors meet & mingle. It's always great to see & chat with fellow vendors less the craziness of a working day...

Kristen & Griff : Wedding

I had an absolute blast photographing Kristen & Griff's wedding. Not only are they a gorgeous couple, they also have such great energy! And so did the rest of their family & friends... I was greeted by hugs & left with more hugs. They make me love my job even more!!! Gerri, I'm still calling you mom :)

It was a FUN wedding! Entertainment by Michael Angelo sure kept everyone on their feet. Videography by BW Video Productions, flowers by Bits of Whimsy. The Virginia Country Club
set as a beautiful backdrop for most of the portraits too. Big thanks to the Roberto Valenzuela & Raychelle for shooting with me.

Here are a few favorites & the slideshow I played at their wedding and a little more...

Jeannine & Patrick: Wedding

Jeannine & Pat had a beautiful wedding at the Summit House. Another super adorable couple! Jeannine's dad performed the ceremony which made extra special... Laughter filled the room and smiles greeted me throughout the day. Dances & toasts were wonderful - it's always great to hear family & friends share their story. DJ Mark Peace kept the party hoppin'.

Thanks to the very talented, Roberto Valenzuela, for coming out to shoot with me.

Here are some favorites & a slideshow of highlights from the day...

In love!

Don't we all know how great that feels?! Even better, to witness it and be able to document it. Natalie & John were high school sweethearts. (It was very cute to see their prom picture displayed on one of the tables too!) When John proposed, he put together a book of their story, photos & all... and as Nat was flipping to the last page, John was already down on one knee. There was that beautiful ring!

One of the sweetest FoB (Father of the Bride) toasts I've heard. It was quite a struggle to hold those tears on the corner on my eyes... thank goodness I had a camera to cover it with ;) SO much love in the air and that dance floor - definitely rockin'.

Friends & family have seen them grow into very fine individuals. They have evolved as a couple too & everyone could not be happier to see them start this chapter in their new life together....

Here are more favorites and a slideshow of the day's highlights...
