What a great guy! Jacob is graduating from Biola University in May with a degree in Film. I am so excited for him! I can totally see him behind the camera directing or producing major films. He spoke about his time at Biola University with nostalgia and endearment. He really enjoyed his 4 years at college. It was so fun hanging out with him and taking his college grad photos. I wish Jacob a wonderful and exciting time at Grad school and I can’t wait to see his future shine!
OMG is all I can say about this Temecula wedding. It was so much fun to photograph. When Jamie and Brett told me about their Longshadow Ranch Winery Wedding and all of the country and DIY details, I just had to be a part of their day. Everything about this rustic, ranch wedding was perfect. The girls in their pink dresses with cowboy boots, and the guys in jeans and boots made for the perfect look for a country wedding.
I knew with all of the Do it Yourself details that Jamie was planning that I would need my amazing team of photographer’s with me at Longshadow Ranch Winery. I like to always go above and beyond for my clients so bringing 2 extra photographer’s along for the day was a big surprise and treat for my clients. Mark, Morgan, Robby and I rocked this wedding.
We started the day with getting ready photos at Pechanga. It was nice to get to spend some time with both the bride and groom before the wedding.
Next we headed over to Longshadow Ranch Winery. We were greeted by beautiful horses, gorgeous landscapes, and the vines were just startting to bloom.
Jamie and Brett chose to do a First Look before the wedding ceremony. The wedding party and family and friends sat in the distance as Jamie and Brett saw each other for the first time on their wedding day.
We used the porch of Longshadow Ranch as the first look spot and it was perfect.
Their ceremony was on the back lawn of the ranch and it was breathtaking. We had gorgeous light for the wedding party photos and romantics. While Mark, Morgan and I walked around the ranch property with the bride and groom. Robby was rocking the Do it Yourself Photo Booth that the Groom’s Dad had made. It was the coolest photo wall I have ever seen. What a great idea.
The reception was filled with homemade napkin holders, a sweet table that was over flowing with goodies, rustic DIY centerpieces and so much more. It really was the perfect day.
Sam from Longshadow Ranch Winery was amazing to work with. She helped us with everything we needed and even came along with use during the romantic photos to help with the bride. So thoughtful and appreciated!
Braven Carver and his team did an amazing job telling the story through video and I cannot wait to see their film they make for Jamie and Brett.
The rustic Chuppah was made by Happy Chuppah
The beautiful florals were by MFG Floral, the sweet treats were by Tasha, Hair and Make up by Tammy Greenwood.
This was the perfect Temecula wedding. I wish Jamie and Brett so much love and the happiest marriage. Enjoy this peak into their special day.
Fleur de Lis Chapel in Upland is such a quaint, historic wedding chapel. It is an honor to be their preferred wedding photographer. If you are looking for the perfect quaint chapel, then Fleur de Lis in Upland is perfect for you. Here are a few wedding pictures from Mercedes and Chuck’s sweet wedding last month at the chapel. Enjoy.
I LOVe photographing destination weddings and Palm Desert is one of my all time favorites. The warm air, the beautiful blue skies and abundance of gorgeous landscapes makes Palm Desert the perfect wedding destination.
Mark and Caitlyn are from Canada. They wanted to have a quaint wedding with their closest family and friends. Palm Desert was their perfect destination.
I met up with Caitlyn at the salon for some getting ready photos, then we headed over to her Mom’s home in the beautiful gated community of Morningside. It is a gorgeous Country Club.
The cermeony was located overlooking the infinity pool. The gorgeous blue skies and Morningside’s Country Club lagoons were the perfect backdrop.
We then headed over to the Club House for family photos and some gorgeous romantic photos of this sweet couple.
It was such a pleasure to walk around this Palm Desert Country Club and take these gorgoeus wedding photos.
I am so happy for Mark and Caitlin and wish them a lifetime of love and happiness. Hopefully we can meet up again when they are visiting our beautiful California Deserts in the future.
Where does the time go? I remember this sweet face when she came to my daughter’s school in Third grade. She and my daughter have been the best of friends ever since. Natalie is graduating from Azusa Pacific University. She has been involved with APU cheer, youth groups, ministry, missions trips and much more. I would have to say that Natalie sure did make the most of her time at Azusa Pacific. She has many lifelong friends that she will continue her journey with. I am so proud of Natalie and the amazing women she has grown into. I look forward to watching her career grow in Naturopathic Medicine. Great job Natalie and congratulations on receiving your Bachelor’s Degree from APU this May. xoxo
This engagement session was so much fun. Mark and I met up with Ayrin and Travis in Claremont and they were ready to hit the ball field. They are huge Angels fans so it only right that they were sporting their Angel red. We found a empty baseball field in Claremont and the fun began. They seriously are the cutest couple ever. After the Angel shots they got dolled up for date night, so cute! Mark and my team are photographing their wedding at The Doubletree by Hilton Claremont next month. They will have a blast! Here is a sneak peak. Enjoy!
My photography was published in Florist Review Magazine this month. Pretty cool.You can see it on page 90!
This wedding was so much fun. Check out my feature of their story in Rustic Wedding Chic by clicking on this link. Enjoy!
I am so blessed. I keep getting to do what I love and photograph so many amazing people! I got to shoot another cool senior session. Stephen is graduating from Damien High School and I actually took his photos when he was a little boy. We met up again when our boys played waterpolo together and Stephen’s Mom was already talking about me taking his senior photos. So cool!
Stephen is such a talented guy. He was the captain for the Damien High School water polo team, has earned many varsity patches to adorn his letterman’s jacket for swim and polo, he is a high achieving student and has many options to attend for college. It was such a pleasure to hang out with him and take his senior photos. We talked about all of his fond memories at Damien, playing the game of polo, the triumphs of swim and where his next journey of college life will lead him. He is such a great young man and and I am so happy for him. Here is a sneak peak at this awesome young senior from Damien High School, Class of 2013!
Guys and their cool cars… Ahww, the life of a high school-er! So lucky. Jacob is graduating from Damien High School Class of 2013. His Mom, who is a dear friend of mine, called me up and said Jacob needed some senior photos. He wanted to bring his classic Mercury, so I knew just the location. Jacob and I headed off to a really cool field down the street from Damien. The road travels though a grassy field and up to a viewpoint overlooking all of the valley. Jacob and I spoke about his plans after he graduates from Damien. I am looking forward to hearing what college he will attend. We also spoke about his Damien friends and how everyone likes his cool classic car. I really liked it too! It was a great senior session and here is a sneak peak.
